If they want to arrest me, they'd better show up in an amphibious assault vehicle to get across my moats. Tongue

Might need some solid shot for an amphibious assault vehicle.

Just a reminder: from the article, a Parrot cannon has a danger of exploding during use. May want to set it up for remote firing from behind a berm.

Anyone make a SmartCannon app?

Just make your reproduction out of steel instead of iron.  Then it won't go kaboom.

Do they make armor-piercing grape shot?

I'd imagine a canister shot of .50BMG API projectiles would come close if you got them fast enough. Short range with no stabilization though.

Maybe Tungsten or DU round shot?

If made out of modern steel, why would your cannon be restricted to black powder?

And if the powder and the projectile are loaded separately, I'm pretty sure you're not restricted to muzzle-loading.  I could be wrong tho', perhaps that just means each shot is not a DD.

I'd consider someone firing a cannon or any firearm (blanks or not) at me to be an immediate threat to life and limb... the proper libertarian response would be to fire a volley from the MG-42 back.

You wouldn't necessarily.  It's just safer from a pressure standpoint. Besides it's better if your defense is smokey and smells of brimstone.

Cannon must be muzzle-loading and smooth bore to stay out of the purview of the NFA.

After all, most medieval siege machines, if scaled to backyard use with smaller gourds, would be pretty quiet.

Still assault, though, I guess.

Sorry dude, Castle Doctrine. The proper libertarian response is to keep the hell off my property unless invited.   grin

Are you doing one of those "all over" shaves?



Also, the Ferrari would bottom out my driveway. Smiley

I'll install a lift kit, 24" rims and spinners.

Not near enough guns or body hair.

I have a "no spinners allowed" sign at the front of the driveway. We're still civilized in that part of Idaho.  grin
