"Really nice" and "really expensive" are a subjective things. Because you also qualify as "anyone"......show me.
I agree here. I understand from a design standpoint what you might be saying. One of the greatest challenges in designing something is making is practical and cost effective, if those things are important. But I agree with Velocity. No, not anyone can design a really nice cannon, period. Not anyone can manage to assemble a really nice cannon out of off the shelf parts either, let alone design a custom one and actually have it work, or be able to communicate your intentions to a shop floor.
