I had the one with the charger and it was always getting gunked up and the plunger would jam.

My cannon and a couple of crumpled toothpaste tubes of "Bangsite" are long gone.. Love the smell of funky acetylene gas...:smile:
If I can remember it was in the $20. dollar range.
Oh yes!!!! I've had them chase me and others around the yard. Then we got brave and started holding them at arms length between out thumb and finger and intentionally launching them at each other. WOHOOOOOO!!!!!!

Then we snuck the tub-o-firecrackers over to the neighbors and strategically placed it right under the ground floor master bedroom window! Ever hear firecrackers reverberating out of a tin tub? By the time it was over the neighbor was out on the porch screaming, most of the lights in the neighborhood were now back on, and my entire family was rolling in the front yard laughing! :rofl::rofl:
I had the small one like yours stashed in my locker in high school. Every once in a while I would fire off a "shot" and it echoed down those smooth hallways. Man, they were looking for me! We also used to take the shot out of .410 shells, tape a BB over the primer and drop them down the 6 foot square stairwells from the third floor. Better effect, but more chance of getting caught.
I had a Vespa motorscooter and had put eye screws into the floorboards. A bottle rocket's stick (or sometimes larger) slid through them on either side. My buddy would ride on the back with a cigar and touch off the fuzes when the "enemy" was in sight.
Can't figure why I'm not in jail right now! LOL
We used to take lady fingers and sink them into holes drilled in apples, then launch them up in the air over the local thoroughfare when there were cars coming to watch them explode and drop applesauce on the windshield of the oncoming cars.
WOW were we some dumb kids! Fortunately, noone was hurt... and it was kinda fun, hehehe
