my cannons
« on: January 10, 2017, 09:51:03 PM »
As i have posted about my mortar time to say a few words about my cannon/s.

I have a 1.25in bore ships cannon, fires a 6 once lead ball a mile?. I do live fire it a some events along side a 9 pound civil war cannon, but I dont get to aim it, have too many other people that want to, and they hit the target a 100 yards(I all ways miss).
  It does get used at some civil war events and has a nick name of LITTLE LOUD MOUTH, blank charge of 1oz powder and 1oz non dairy creamer.

I have just brough a 1/2 scale mountion howlzer 1.5in bore but have not played with it yet(too cold outside), but will get it to a range when it warms up, and fix up the carriage.

Time to save up to buy a full size one, looking at a 3.5in bore ships cannon??. :evil:

I'll bet they are really impressive to shoot at night.
Great artillery, thanks for the photos.

My cannon can be heard up tp 1 mile away, we checked it out one time, 4 ounce blank charge and it was heard 1 mile away through woods. We were just out side the Wisconsin dells at a friend of mine.
 The cannon is now known as Little Loud Mouth. Not sure about the mortar yet, but will check it out this year.
