    I'd hate to drive behind your trailer on the freeway.

    That would be awesome. Do you load and fire yourself or do you have a crew?

    It belongs to one of my dads very good friends. Between him, his 2 sons, me, my dad and a couple of other guys I guess we're a crew.

    But it wouldnt be anything to shoot it by yourself, it would suck to aim and load back up on the trailer however.

    I just have a vid of friends 20lb Parrott (3.67" bore, 20lb shell). The one we typically shoot is a 10lb Parrott (3" bore, 10lb shell). We e both typically shoot from anywhere from 300-2200m at $150-$250 a pop.

    Here's a good vid of friends 30lb Parrot from the receiving end.

    One our size would be about $20k, maybe more. There are cheaper, but ours is built specifically for throwing lead and doing it accurately. So they run more.

    Ive hit M113s, T55s, deuces, etc at 2200. Closer in is uaually 114s, gamagoats.

    It's all based on line of sight and shot threw a typical peep sight. Im sure smaller can be hit, just a matter of seeing it well enough to get a good line on.

    edit

    Pics removed at request of eric. - just too many as mentioned. I will see what i can do about posting just the guns later and maybe a thread about old stuff in general later.

    yes

    I spent hours and hours walking around and taking picturs of canons, gatling guns, mortors, tents, wagons.

    mostly from around the turn o9f the century but being an office tech they also had some old office machines I took advantage of taking pictures of.

    i will see if I czn norrow down the pics to only the cannons , mortars and guns in a day or two and repost them.

    I had forgot there were that many. My appologies. history and old guns is a passiomn of mine, I know nothing about them but the day I got to help that guy at Ft. Concho clean his cannon was pretty cool. I never got to fire it but he did let me help clean it up.

    my dad had a cannon from the civil war growing up not sure what kind but they over loaded it and it about killed my uncle so they got rid of it. I wish he still had it though.
