    golfball cannon/blackpowder cannon plans ??

    hey guys, was wondering if yall knew if any sites that would have plans for either a golfball cannon or a blackpowder cannon that can be machined on a lathe. they would be somewhat tabletop sized or can fit in the back of a pickup. nothing towbehind sized
    i dont mess with the ATF, they dont mess around, they are like a fat convention at a chinese buffet, either way they are there for a reason and they are gonna leave a hurt on ya once they are done

    I have no plans to share, but my dealer has had a few he's been selling. A guy in central PA has been making them. He makes both a beer/soda can cannon and a golfball cannon.
    The can versions shoot a beer/soda can filled with cement or they will also shoot tennis balls. Pretty damn cool.
    The golfball cannon is a smaller frame than the beer can version, it is NOT in the pictures below.

    Prob gonna pic one up. Besides, you get to drink your ammo LOL

    1st pic: the beer/soda can cannon
    2nd pic: (left to right) beer can, golf ball, old homemade golfball cannon
    3rd pic: jst fired a tennisball, used newspaper for wadding

    Nate, do you have any live footage of that thing firing?

    If you don't mind, PM me with the contact info where you got yours. I may be interested in picking up one of the long ones.

    im sure i have video some where on a cd or a flash drive. I'll have to look around.
    None of those are mine, but i will try to get you the info for the black one. I have no idea who made the other two, the long one in the middle and the one on the right.

    By the look and design of the base of the mortars, Dominick seems to be the manufacture of the cannons my dealer had.
