Do spud guns shoot out whole potatoes?
Depends. There is the large potato gun/ potato cannon/ spud gun. These are several feet long, and shoot a whole potato. However, in the 1950s, there was a toy also called a Spud Gun. It used air pressure to shoot a very small sliver of potato a few feet. They were generally red plastic, and about 3 inches long.
