Bowling ball Cannon
« on: May 10, 2008, 11:14:39 PM »
Here is a quick picture of a couple cannons that I've built. The first is a bowling ball cannon. I can shoot them over a mile:o)


Here are a few that I have built. The mortars shoot soda cans. The model of the 24 pounder shootes golf balls.


I built this custom cannon for a guy in Boise, ID. It shoots Golf balls.


I'll post some others later:o)

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

There was a guy taking some video with a digital camera there. That was one of the frames. When you shoot it, you cant see all that fire. Just a bunch of smoke. That was 10 tablespoons of powder.
