    like the kind they sell at firequest.com? I mean is it necessary to have a shell that shoots thumbtacks? :dunno:
    At the same time, it kinda sounds fun :hs:

    I've used the graphite and the beanbag rounds but none of the other stuff. Graphite rounds are great for taking door hinges off.

    I know an old guy that has a muzzleloader pistol he bought in 1962 for $20 dollars, he shoots brad nails and all kinds of other shit out of it.

    I heard about a mommy that grabbed her son's shottie loaded with Dragon's Breath and set fire to an intruder, and, coincidentally, the house.

    What a fucking surprise all that would be.

    Too expensive per round but I should buy some because it is only going to become illegal.

    I've seen some of those at the gun shows a long time ago. Wanted to get a shotgun just so I could play around with them... lol

    The terminator-x sounds scary

    Edit: They're selling SS109 ammo for $19.99 for 10 rounds :ugh:

    I thought the rounds like that were meant to tear down the rigging of the ship. Would be some serious force to tear down a mast of a ship with two balls and a chain.

    The mast cutter description is accurate. The general idea was to cover more area with a single shot. Better chance of the cannonballs themselves hitting the mast, not necessarily the chain itself. If the chain did catch the mast, the cannonball would be drawn againt the mast and cause severe damage.

    Remember, the cannonball itself didn't have to do a lot of damage. The force of the wind trying to move the ship would finish the job handily.
