Every once in a while at some of the gun shows I've been to there will be a dealer selling cannons. Heck, I wish I could remember where the last one was I saw them.

They would probably be fun to play with, but what exactly is the law concerning them? Can you have a blackpowder cannon without having it registered as a DD?

according to the guys at the re-enactment all you need in michigan is a trailer hitch.and a trailer plate of course.
i'd love to see the looks on peoples faces behind that!

i have a good friend who built a civil war era howitzer several yrs ago. i don't know what caliber it was but it shot a 1# lead ball. yes it was a lot of fun to play with. i have always wondered what that would have done to a car.:)
