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."
