KA-BOOM by grenztruppen KA-BOOM by grenztruppen
A home made cannon,
Some family freinds stopped by to test out their cannon.
The one guy is like a black smithing guru and has built everything from rifles and cannons to swords. We made a whole day out of it and even blew up a old refridgerator.
It shot 40mm lead balls (about 6oz each) with enough force to go through a fridge and still blow a hole in frozen dirt about 1 foot across.
When I fired it I had to hold the tail end and touch the primer with a wick. The resulting blast felt like getting punched in the ears.
Who honestly gets to play target practice with a cannon in their life time?
