Fun With Stuff That Goes Boom

Is that a......Tire?

I'm an old Cannon Cocker. I've worked with and around everything from SP to Towed to Mortars. 4.2 inch, 105mm, 155mm even the old 8 Inch guns (which were beasts in every sense of the word). I've never seen an artillery piece quite like this one but anything that shoots a tire with a resounding boom and a cloud of smoke is flat out awesome.

I think I need it. I at least have to shoot one though perhaps with a slightly longer fuse. I gotta drop an e-mail to The Redneck Engineer and put a bug in his ear.

Yes! When you and Redneck Engineer get it all screwed together let me know!

But, if you get a tire-cannon hangfire, DO NOT Do what this moron did!
