Unidentified visitors cover their ears as they watch David Schlagel, of Eaton, Colo., fire a pumpkin from his home-made canon at the Schlagel Pumpkin Patch in Windsor on Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 26, 2005. Schlagel says he can launch a pumpkin as far as one-half mile from the truck-based canon that he and friend Jeff Winick built two years ago. He said they hope to construct another canon with dual compressors that will fire a pumpkin a distance of one mile and possibly set a world record for the feat. He fires the gourd artillery piece three times every hour to entertain customers at the patch. (JOE MAHONEY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) name: david schlagel (cq) jeff winick (from schlagel)
