    I found this 2 lb. Brass Howitzer, complete with carriage and tools, yesterday at Fort Frederick Market Fair. Flying Canoe traders has it, but I didn't have the price nor even close enough to haggle with the guy.... :(

    I'd hesitate to say as it might be a tacit "ad" and this isn't the "for sale" section of the forum. ;)

    The label around the muzzle reads $6500.

    Too bad you could have leaned what it likes by rabbit season and if your close(1/2 a mile or so) you might get a whitetail;)

    I showed it to my wife and told her our anniversary is coming up, response was no as it required adult supervision.
