Looking for a good way to launch a water ballon from a pneumatic cannon. Any ideas?
Rebooting is kinda like duct tape. It fixes everything.

You pretty much have to use a sabot of some sort to seal the barrel good.

^^You could try a paper cup. Or a rag, but that might not work well with a water balloon. You would definately need something like this to prevent it from exploding upon firing.

make a cardboard or paper cup sabot or use a balloon inside another so it is thicker and harder to break

I use a paper towel roll cut down one side so it seperates. It has to have a back on it however or the roll will stay in the barrel and the balloon will pop. Learned that from experience.
