We shoot golf balls out of my uncle's cannon but have yet to see one land, even over a plowed field. Lately, we have skipped projectiles and just enjoy the BANG, smoke, and muzzle flash. Shots at night are impressive.

Unless there is something you absolutely have to hit, the bang and flash are the best part.

That would definitely count as "disposing properly."

I also have a smaller cannon in my battery and I'll definitely bring it with me.

Think he'd loan it out? If we could get two, we might be able to stage a Germans vs. the Irish skirmish astride the creek.

I was going to make a potato cannon to bring, but then thought the US Customs might not approve when I roll up at the border.

I have a mold for a 38MM ball - it cuts into the Lead Stocks severly.
