    For more than a decade an air-powered piece of PVC pipe has, without fear or favour, fired t-shirts into a delighted crowd at home games of the Townsville Crocodiles.

    But no more.

    The National Basketball League team was this week forced to surrender its homemade t-shirt cannon to police, after it was deemed a category B weapon.

    WTF??? No more spud guns I guess, unless you register them. More Government run amok.

    It is Australia where there is a heavy ban on weapons, but I wonder what makes it a category "B" weapon - ability to entertain the masses?

    No. the golf ball cannon is too small a caliber and does not fall under the guidelines for t-shirts and/or other clothing shooters.

    Book on weird WWII weapons that were tried in desperation by the English told of a piece of pipe and a steam valve used to throw grenades into the air to force the Nazi attacking airplanes to fly higher. Might not be to effective, but it looked like flack. They also used tar and small rocks on plywood to make "protective panels" as they were not allowed to call it armor by some weird english rule. That did work well for small rounds. Don't remember the name of it, but it had a lot of weird ideas and some of them, sten gun for example, worked out well.

    Looks like the "Bratzooka" will have to be reclassified as a destructive device...
