That was 28 years ago. It does make a pretty loud boom to chunk a 2 lb. ball. We made our ammo from Campbell's soup cans. Filled them with quick crete. Whala, instant projectile.

At a living history event on a big lake in Tennessee years ago we asked the Ranger where we could shoot the cannon. No projectiles mind you. He said, "out over the lake". When we asked about the bass boats he said, "Oh!, you better lead them pretty good!" We all had a good laugh.

It was a much simpler time. Man I miss it.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from either end.
