    How about a pig cannon?

    EDIT
    I deleted the link given in this topic because it is exactly what the forum rules stated was not allowed to be posted here.

    Here is what the rule says:

    Discussions about Traditional muzzleloading cannons. No breech-loaders, pipes with end caps, PVC, or "potato guns". Historic cannon design only.

    There is no way this is a "Historic cannon"

    IIRC it was actually a letter to the editor thing. Still proof that Darwin was right. Most states in Germany have strict periodic inspections of artillery, and noise making guns. This includes a proof test by a government lab, every five years Bavaria. The date of the test is stamped on the barrel. There are strict rules about firing an untested piece and even with all this testing they have fatal accidents. Ft McHnery had a cannon accident just a couple years ago, when a large commercially made cannon fails and the cascabel flew some 40 yards to the rear. I took notice that the National Park service has removed it's web page about how cannons are made and loaded.
