My Bud, who owns a farm in town where I live has a pumpkin cannon - same principle as your limp wristed paintball gun, only on a grander scale (16" bore instead 0f .68").

He has a 30' long length of 16" sewer pipe mounted on an old Army Duece & a Half with a hydraulic lift to control the trajectory. He has an Army 10 Cyl. diesel compressor pumping air into a very large propane tank, I don't know the cubic capacity of the tank, but it is 2-3 times the size of a typical tank behind a rural house. He pumps it up to between 1200 & 1500 PSI. There are 8 X 4" hoses running from the tank to the breech of the cannon, they drain the tank pretty quick. Load up a 16" pumpkin (or 2-3) and your ready to create some havoc.

He has an 8'X8' sign with Bin Ladens face on it, and has named the cannon the Bin Laden Bomber. He has the sign & an old combine 2,400 feet away in one of his fields. He has yet to hit OBL in the puss, but has come within several feet of him. Yep, 1-3 16" pumpkins shooting via compressed air over a 1/3 of a mile. He puts on exhibitions every hour on the weekends during the pumpkin picking season. Wer'e going to try a few other items after halloween - 3' lengths of telephone poles with the pressure really cranked up for some long distance record shooting, theres even some talk about launchin' a few of the farm cats just to see if they land on their feet :)
