Okay, I confess to a minor fascination with weaponry. There are so many amazing inventions created over thousands of years for the express purpose of whomping other people over the head, it’s simply astounding.
That realization aside – I could have so much fun just shooting BBs at objects with this very smart looking little cannon. It may not be politically correct but I don’t care. I feel the same way about long swords, derringers, trebuchets, lugers and machine guns too. I showed this video clip to my husband and left the next morning on a business trip. Not even 24 hours passed before he sent me a picture of the miniature cannon he’d machined in his workshop.
He’s a little dangerous when left to his own devices.
Several prototypes later, a small production series followed. Guess what grandpa got for his birthday? Guess what’s sitting on the shelf above my computer? Cool – in a vaguely alarming sort of way. Miniature cannons are all the rage amongst our family and friends now. BB’s buzz through the air and the smell of black powder perfumes the patio like BBQ.
Which not-politically-correct indulgence do you have? What’s your favorite weapon? Who…I mean what, would you shoot?
