Spud Guns

Xander hit the ground when he heard the bang. After a quick check to make sure all body parts were where he'd left them, he looked around and spotted Andrew with a group of his trainees.

"What the hell are you doing? We don't do firearms training."

Andrew snorted and brandished a long PVC tube. "They're not guns, they're produce accelerators. We're comparing the projectile range of combustion and pneumatic launchers."

It took Xander a few moments of looking blank before his brain translated the geek into something approximating English. "You made potato cannons?"

"And next week we'll discuss trebuchets."

hee! That sounds exactly like something Andrew would say. And that'd be exactly Xander's reaction.

How often do you get to use produce accelerators in something? It's the little things that amuse me.

I love potato cannons! We used to sneak out when the parents weren't home and ...

Um, never mind.

There are some stories best left under wraps, at least, until the statute of limitations runs out.

I'm sure the statute of limitations has passed as far as the law is concerned, but some things it's best my mother still doesn't find out about.

Ah, a mother's statute of limitations never expires.
