    How much recoil force do you think the AccessRac/Roof can handle?

    Say I was to mount a turreted spud cannon on there, do you think it would rip the expanding threaded inserts out of my roof.

    Oh man so it was recoil in the sense that I was thinking......I literally have no idea. I have made one of those hair spray spud cannons before and I think the roof rack could handle one of those

    I was thinking more along the lines of onboard air powered but probably negligible difference.

    I think you'd be fine. There's 12 rivnuts holding it in, so if properly installed it'd be strong enough to handle it in my unprofessional opinion

    My bed rack might be better for the application, but I'd have a huge cutout in front of me... again hypothetically.

    I really think the prinsu would be fine. Mine is rock solid, and the spuf cannons don't have that much recoil

    Remote control motorized swivel turret is the way to go. Like a tank.

    Hypothetically? The beach, the mall, rush-hour traffic.
    Hypothetically less than 300 yards. Using the equipment I may or may not be using.

    Make it the right diameter for a beer can and you’ll be the life of the camp.

    I'm sure nobody wants a beer launched at that velocity. Were talking broken bones and death at that point.
