|If anyone receives the quartely magazine The Artilleryman, this quarter's issue has a GREAT article on artillery accidents. Some common denominators in those accidents are: homemade cannons made from pipes, over-loading the gun with too much gun powder and jamming objects down the barrel. Only one or two accidents involved proper loading, quality reproductions or originals (NOT stupid pipe guns) and people not cramming things down the barrel (in one accident, some fools stuffed the gun with bread!).
