Using duct tape to make the breach end of a pipe bomb cannon. A one inch thick 'tile' of tape held on with a pipe flange. Looked like maybe five inch pipe.

It just re-enforces the theory that idiots can get away with something at least just once.[/color]

I'd like to see the "Mythbusters" make, and then proof a cannon barrel composed of bull manure; this would undoubtedly be the crowning achievement of their careers.

Yeah, but did you watch the slowmo and see how much that thing flexes..using FFFg. how many grains of powder is in 5 shotgun shells?

Then they make the cannon...they scare me

I THINK a 12 ga. hull holds about 150 to 175 grains by volume. I think. It has been a while since I checked one.

And you know that in spite of their "please don't try anything you see here at home" some goobers will get out their duct tape and try it. And since they won't be able to get black powder, they will use Pyrodex. Or smokeless. And we will again see headlines about "replica civil war cannon explodes."
