With the completion of the artwork and attachment of the armor, “Devas-tater” is finally finished. See the complete build at my blog starting here .
Here’s a video of loading and shooting. Sorry about the plumber’s butt; I do need to drop some weight. By the time this was shot, we’d fired several rounds, and I was getting pretty quick with the loading procedure. You can see me pounding the projectile onto the cutting edge of the muzzle. I say, “Stand by….fire”. It’s hard to see the trigger wire with the low resolution, but the trigger operator is off camera to the right. It’s quite a bit louder in person than on the video; loud enough that I have to cover my ear on the near side.
