Hey everyone,

I just joined the site. I'm not as big-league as most of you, as I only shoot the traditional ammo that the gun was named after, but I'm having fun nonetheless and enjoy reading all your posts. A guy's gotta start somewhere right? One of these days I'll get more elaborate with my gun.

Cheers,
Tango (from Canada)

Welcome to the forums! Cool gun, but why did you post the same picture 3 times? Where in Canada do you live?

Thanks... I kind of screwed up trying to attach my pic, thinking it didn't take, until after 3 tries, I saw that it took each time... duh !! I live in Calgary.

That cannon should have a longer barrel for better performance.
Again, welcome to the forum.

Welcome!

I think the 'high-tech' cannons your referring to are made by members of other forums, or are no longer on this forum. Although there is a few great builders left on these forums. You've shown that your able to greatly surpass typing skills set forth by most members, so thats a bonus!

Same as BlueTooth stated, I also don't recall a gun with its chamber a top the barrel, nice design.

"Most often, the simple ones are the most fun!!" ~B the B

True that. The gun I shoot the most by far, is the combustion that lives outside, either on the front lawn, or the back porch. It is rained on, snowed on, beaten by the 115 desert heat, you name it, and its still going strong as the first day I built it. Same BBQ sparker, and I built this cannon well over a year ago.

Thanks for the feedback Benstern, Bluetooth, Brian-the-Brain, I Know My 3 Tables, and Pimpmann !!

Any women on this forum?? Just curious. Who knows... maybe in other countries these sort of guns appeal to the ladies...
