America, the greatest gangster of all time. With 200 million odd foot soldiers at it's whim and call.
When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

It looks like it wasn't loaded, and that all that came out was compressed air? Because any decent cannon would have left him with a head in pieces. And that glorious pink mist. :lol:

I can't tell what it was loaded with, though I can tell it had something in it. There was some paper or something floating down after it went off, perhaps from a sabot.

why do folks insist on looking down the barrel?!

It's a problem that has been causing accidents ever since barrelled weapons were invented, that's why stuff like this exists. :roll:

Ingenious little device there jack. Though I think a pocket mirror would work for us usually.

I think it was (loaded), but fortunately for him, and based on what the camera guy said at the start, I think the projectile was very near the top of the barrel so it had little distance to accelerate over. Probably a spud I guess.

That video is a good advert for common sense, a safety catch, breech loader and pneumatics.
You can be sure when you have a breech loader that the ammo is right where it should be.

Any problems... safety catch, open and inspect breech, find appropriate solution.

@JSR: I don't understand it... quick, look down the end that goes bang!!!

It is a human instinct to look down a barrel when a cannon doesnt work.
Because what do you expect to see? Something else then a projectile wich is a long way down? Or one thats approaching very fast?

But hey, if you just really cant help it and HAVE TO look down a barrel:
Use a mirror! ;) :D
