Big Bang is an unfortunate cannon when something went wrong and exploded. The idea had started as a joke when some friends and I were talking about a previous cannon I made few months ago. Somebody, jokingly, mentioned ” exploded cannon ”. I thought about it and said to myself ” Why not ? ” And here I am with my exploded cannon.

Why not!? Very good and original idea. Not everything need to be perfect, I mean not exploded.Very authentic.

That is terrific Sam, definitely the creator of wooden wonders. Will need a barrel change on that one. Well done.

Wow, nice work Sam

Known in the “Big” Gun world Artillery as a gun premature.
Glad to see your OK and obviously you were out of the Blast Zone at the time.
Still it would have given you a scare no doubt.
They possibly even heard that one at Holsworthy
How was your hearing afterwards?

-- Regards Robert

It happens when you shoot with mud or snow in the barrel. Gotta be more careful Sam ;-)
