    Personal Artillery: Generation 2

     This gun came into being with a lot less flare and more experience.  The first gun was getting old, and I think I may have already found the crack in it, so I was definitely not going to use it anymore, so I went out to the store and picked up enough ABS to make 2 guns, so I wouldn't have to buy more later.  I cut this one with pretty much the same ratio in mind as the first one, but of course I just eyeballed it and didn't really measure anything.  I assembled it, let it cure for a day, and installed the igniter.  Voila, we have the second generation spud gun!
