    Default Gives new meaning to the term "Loose cannon"

    (5) Guys and (1) dog, with a fork lift and an 8" howitzer............winging it.

    As good a way to spend an afternoon as any I suppose.

    If you can afford to give up 10 min of your life this is mildly entertaining and reminds you that anything is possible if you put your mind (and wallet ) to it.

    Probably not as scary as it looks as they claim to have experiece @ it...but still.

    I do give them kudos for moxy.

    Yep...looked like it to me....but they claim that is how they do it all the time as they have no breech seal so they cannot use a lanyard....hence the extra big hole for the det cord.

    Anyway you put put..yah...kinda dangerous.

    All around looks like a bad idea and completely unsafe. If one doesn't have the proper equipment to operate the piece then it should not be used. They were firing towards buildings and an active road. The smartest one there might be the dog.
