    My cousin picked up a cannon from a friend of his. We tested it out over New Years. It shoots Coors cans filled with concrete or lead balls and is capable of hitting a mile.

    You really have to be careful with shit like that. I've seen many homemade jobs go wrong.

    I know a couple of people in souther cali that have cannons and have cannon shoots. I don't think it's too much of a problem considering is a muzzle loading smooth bore weapon. IF YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DON'T CAST IT :nono: THE CHANCE OF INCLUDING SLAG AND WEAKENING IT IS TOO BIG. Machine it from a piece of commercial 4041 steel or if your rich bronze bar stock. There is a forum on the internet I don't want to get in trouble but google black powder cannon forums and it is high up there. There are plans and various information.

    Somebody post up the video of the bowling ball cannon. It's been a few years.
