This surprisingly accurate and destructive mini cannon proves that you don’t need a lot of powder to inflict damage. Looking back on age 10 when I was burning more black powder than Kit Carson, things could have worked out much worse. [via boingboing]

  1. between the explosive material and the bullet once should always put some kind of fabric (cotton, felt) or paper! Otherwise the charge can go off when you press the metalic bullet into the barrel. I used to shoot with a slightly bigger muzzleloader cannon and still have my hands and fingers just because I followed this simple caveat. Nice cannon indeed :-)
