Air Debris Canon

I seemed to have misplaced a great tut on how to use air cannons to shoot out debris for explosions. I would like to do the special effects instead of doing it in post.

SOmethig about a tube, dirt, and compressed air. Anyone know what I am tlaking about?

It's probably the same concept as a potato gun. Just google "potato gun" for a general idea. Even better if you have an air compressor.

Yeah, that's the general idea. I need to know how to create a blow off valve with a trigger though.
