A month or two ago I was driving home from work. Coming the back way through the country vice taking the "city" route. Anyhoo, there on the side of the road were two bowling balls. I do a quick U-Turn and picked them up for the kids. One is right out front with their other balls and one is up at my MILs.
One of the part time guys at work is a Welder.

Schmit with a Bowling Ball Punt Mortar!
I can acutally see this growing into a new hobbie. The big boy Punt Mortar and a few other smaller ones (vegetable size, quart can size).
Fire for Effect, Aye Aye. FIRE IN THE HOLE!!! :twisted:
Schmit, maybe you better start small and work up???
I had a friend when I was young who made a firecracker "gun." He found a short length of pipe with an inside diameter that would allow a standard marble to fit in. He welded closed one end, and added a handle to it. He would then set a firecracker in the muzzle with the fuse bent over the "crown" and set a marble atop that. When the fuse burned past the "crown," the 'cracker and marble would drop in, and then fire. He said that if you shot it at night, all you would see was a small ball of fire arcing across the sky. It apparently had a range in excess of 100 yards....
