View Full Version : Spud Guns!

I'm sure you know what a spudgun is. *I built my first one about 11 years ago. *I'm planning on building one for a friend as his Christmas present this year.

In researching them, I came across SpudTech.com. *This guy has built an amazing business. *Due to some local code ordinences, he is being forced to sell his business. *In his sales note, he states that he makes $100K per year with his business. *The asking price is $250,000.

Steve, you'll get a kick outta this: *He was asked to design a t-shirt launcher for Sammy Hagar and met him after a montrose concert.


This is worth a read. (http://www.spudtech.com/content.asp?id=31)

It's amazing you can build a thriving business selling spud guns. *Who woulda thunk it?

LOL you know, at first I didn't catch that it was a t-shirt launcher. I must have missed that. THAT alone is a business in itself!

If this guy is making money at this, cmon build them somewhere else! Don't sell it! Jeeze!

I'd love to see what you create!

I am sure each state is different with it's laws, but it seems like they would be fun to make.
