I've decide to buy another muzzle loading cannon. This one is an M6 Field Cannon.

But this field cannon shoots .177-inch caliber BBs. It's a small enough cannon that I don't have to go to a gun range to shoot.

I must say, I do not approve of the video's abuse of alcohol or destruction of other fine stuff. I will likely destroy some poultry products though with my little cannon.

I'm just a 10-year trapped in a 71-year-old body.

God bless,

You'll shoot your eye out with that thing.

I sure would be careful loading it and where you point it whilst doing so. Spontaneous ignition is not unknown and be sure to swab out between firing.

Very impressive video though!

Your are quite right, Deadhead. There is a loading video that stresses using Q-tips to clean and clear the barrel after each shot.
