video time 1:40 would of been cool if they have shot in them, like to see how far they go with them them, say hit that house in the back ground with some small cannon balls knocking down the door for blowing out the door of the garage of the Neighbors LOL!
Sorry to sound a bit stiff neck necked, but this is something we are very sensitive about-safety. Our hobby comes under fire every time some idiot loads powder in a piece of water pipe and blows himself or someone else up. When someone shoots a bowling pin into the neighbors horse barn or a cannon ball of into a residential neighborhood, the Media has a feeding frenzy at our expense-Mythbusters did us no favors.
Because of that, comments such as your are not appreciated. Shooting cannons in such a manner is reckless and careless. We Practice and preach safety. We are offended by those who do not. They jeopardize our hobby.
That doesn't mean we don't shoot at houses. We have. Several of the regulars have had the opportunity shoot into houses that were about to be demolished. They have posted here and I believe several have posted videos on Youtube. Some of us have shot cars also. I have a post here where I am shooting attempting she how far I can shoot a bowling ball. We do this all in a safe manner, in a safe environment and have lots of fun. Thats is when we LOL. Almost all of the videos of these events end with grown up adult cannoneers giggling like a bunch little kids. We have fun
The Ring in the Spring is something we do each spring, to encourage everyone to get out their cannons that have been sitting all winter, dusting them off, clean them up and go shoot. Shoot blanks like I did last year or live fire like I did in 2011. The event is set up so wherever you are, we all fire a shot at the same time.
I invite you to join us. If you can only fire a blank, we have a sticky at the top that tells you how to build a blank. Or load up your cannon and go to cannon shooting range and shoot. Be safe, have fun and LOL.
