Default Cannon fire

Wednesday, May 2nd about 11:00 I will be on Range 9 (subject to change) with "Old Moses" -- my full-size 1841 6-pound smoothbore cannon doing some demonstration live-fire with shot and canister. No shell, unfortunately!

This is the cannon you may have seen on "Mythbusters" shooting at pirate ships, and trying out chain and nails as improvised ammo.

No, we did NOT launch the cannonball into Dublin.

You are welcome to come out and watch.

At least I met Mustang.

It is all these "secret identities" we have here. I am bad enough about names, but when I have to remember a real name, a screen name and the one your friends call you when you have your muffs on, it is tough!

"Old Shooter" is a double-play on, well, my age, but also on a term used at the ARNG nationals. 32 is (was) my badge number and call sign for way too many years as a cop. I was going to use "Old Moses" (cannon's name) but thought I'd be thought to be a religious fanatic or something. "Moses" was the nickname my wife picked for the gun since he "speaks with a great voice and lays down the law." I added the "old" to celebrate his years of service... And because it sounded cool.

I have a couple solid shot and some canister loaded up...some water barrels and Sillhouette targets are going to be sorry! (not the steel Sillhouette ones though.)

I'd love to come out and see you shoot your cannon; unfortunately there's no way I can make it. Have fun.

It's NOT too late y'know.
