Got a cannon handy?

How about pics of a cannon with your bike? Photo taken at Shilo Battlefield in TN. Really interesting story of the significance and the relating of it to the railroad in Corinth, MS just south of this location.

I almost bought one last year. 42" length overall, with a two inch bore. Loud as crap! The plan was to let loose late at night if our neighbor (Trapp Family Lodge) allowed their outdoor music to continue too long into the night. It was a good plan, and the thought of launching flaming wads of toilet paper in their general direction filled my soul with warm feelings, but the price was a bit steep

Does a hand held cannon = black powder pistol?

Can I ask what projectile (solid / shot / lead?) you are firing? How do you ensure that nobody is downrange?

No projectile in those shots. Just about 300gr black powder and a little newspaper for wadding.

It's a .75 inch bore.

My first thought - wait, can't post it. This is serious cannon! Good-lookin' bike too.

Back to the Titans and Steelers.
