Variable Energy Research Accelerator aka. Worlds Largest Potato Gun

    Variable Energy Research Accelerator (VERA) is essentially a massive potato gun capable of generating up to 1,660,000 ft/lbs of muzzle energy! It can launch a 100 pound (700,000 grain) projectile at 1000 feet per second. It is an incredible machine.

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
