I looked at a few videos - man, those Nerf soakers pale to the original super soakers.

The best dad version is to find an old 5 gallon water fire extinguisher, fill it up and air it up to 100psi.

Iā€™m working on making a single shot cannon out of an old thermal expansion tank and a 3/4ā€ dump valve. It should have a fair amount of recoil upon firing.

That reminds me of the water rockets we used to have. I think I had a 2-stage one at one point, but the connection to the pump was always the weak point. Wonder if in the internet age there's a group of people that have taken those to 11.

My 13 year old and his buddies like the style that has the large grip underneath and fires a strong stream as you pull the grip back. These two I see a lot.

Surely someone has done this with a corny keg. I imagine an air nozzle would work pretty well, though you may have to tweak it.

I think a 5 gallon corny, with maybe 1.5 to 2 gallons of water filled with air to 40 psi would be cool. Put it in a backpack, and my kid will terrorize the neighborhood. Time to make the Googles...

Flipped upside down with water out the gas line side. More water higher psi. A pressure washer sprayer may make a good distance shooter.

lol in college we use to take super soakers filled with screwdrivers to soccer games. In hindsight I don't know why we were allowed to take squirt guns to the games

It looked exactly like an Uzi. When I was 12, me and my buddy Paul carried them to Boy Scout camp and terrorized everyone with them. They were great!
