Haha. I get it. I had to finance this by selling my stuff I’ve collected over the years , guns Martin ukulele red Coleman lanterns etc.. to get it through wife financing dept. but I’m in for about what a kibler kit costs

I could sell off all my stuff and I would still be told no, no cannons. It was made very clear to me early on that was a no go.
The way I got it past the boss is , it’s a non firing replica for yard ornament for July 4th. It’s not drilled to fire. BUT the drill could be used later on!

mine didn't even stretch it out. Just a grim mouthed NO! followed by a muttered "OLD FOOL". 😭




wonder if she would even notice one out by the wood pile? hmmmmmm!

My wife likes it because it's larger than the small desktop cannons but agrees the local police wouldn't like it on the lawn. We live just outside NYC:( It's probably illegal in NYS but I don't know.

Cannons are fun to shoot , Trouble is they are fun for every one to watch and they don't supply the powder . My buddy and I had a Cohorn mortar which fired concrete filled beer cans with an explosive charge in them for airbursts , we got donations of powder from all who were watching , otherwise it was too expensive to shoot . This is my mates lockdown special
