Wish I’d had one of those to wake up the neighbors this morning. Maybe someday.

I have one and some 10g blackpowder shells a friend loaded for me. I was too scared to fire it off in my back yard for fear of a guy like you shooting back at me with something bigger! Maybe on New Years Eve I will christen it.

When I got first Winchester signal cannon I touched it off at the house. My old neighbor/friend called up and asked if it was me shooting and if so what the heck I was firing. I told him I’d heard it too but it wasn’t me. This went on the next couple times I fired it. He’d call me up and ask if I’d heard the boom(s). I’d play dumb and his curiosity would grow. I finally broke down and brought the noisy little cannon down to show him and let him touch it off. We both got a kick out of it.

 

They’re becoming more and more pricey but a mine is a very enjoyable part of the collection in my opinion.

Several of my neighbors love fireworks and the Fourth in my neighborhood is a huge show that goes on for hours. First few hours are nice. Unfortunately some like shooting live ammo in firearms.
