    Default An average day in Tennessee.

    I was minding my own business, sweeping out the garage and then here comes a truck, pulling into my drive. I ordered some boots, but that doesnt look much like boots. Ah, it must be that new toy I ordered....

    Its a Naval Carronade, (reproduction) a pattern used in the mid 1800's. Although it can be fired, it looks fine on the floor in my front room.

    Do you have a problem with Pirates in Tennesse Tankgeezer?

    Aye Matey we do indeed, the Tennessee River is rife with piracy ! (well yuppies in powerboats anyway) although it can be fired, I have no plans at present to build a proper mount for it, but if I get bored this Fall, who knows....So it will sit in the front room for now.

    I remember seeing one of the cannons off Victory being fired at Pendennis castle. Exceptionally loud and lots of smoke. You could feel the vibration of it going off through the floor, a truly awesome spectacle seeing it fired.

    It must have been incredible to see a Man o' War firing a broadside back in those days.

    Some people have too much time and money on their hands.

    Doesn't Walmart have smaller and cheaper doorstops?

    A mate of a mate of mine has a rather larger but still well under full sized version of the wheeled cannon you have in your corner, which he fires from time to time on his country property. Apparently it makes a very satisfactory noise and removes impressive amounts of forest flora, and any fauna which happens to be in its path.

    If your devious then mount it behind some blinds in your window and next time someone parks blocking your drive yell out "Raise the flaps and roll out the guns" then raise the blinds and wave.

    Very nice.

    Normally yes, but at present they are all in the Congress, Senate, and White House.

    There are a few different companies in the U.S. that make cannon, This one is from Hern Ironworks, then there is Southbend replicas, the others I dont recall. I chose a naval gun because they have more detail, and character.

    Iron Yoeman: You might find this interesting, although it is hollywood pryotechnics, (the Victory has few real guns left, most are fiber glass props so I am told.) it is still impressive. http://youtu.be/L2WdU3Zkeig

    You seem to draw your elected representatives from the same doorstop factory reject bin that we select ours.

    I do believe that they use the same "Feet of Clay " casting process.
