Mountain Howitzer !!!!!!! I don,t know if its a wind up or not. Looks a bloody good laugh though. Imagine trying to get permission off a farmer to shoot one of those. Its bad enough with an air rifle or shotgun. How would you stand legally with one of them in the UK? What license would you need? & does anybody know of a gunsmith with a fcuk off big lathe? Oh, & a good chippy & wheelwright. Just curious lol!!
I've got a feeling it might actually be a shotgun license, or closely related. A friend of mine at school did Sealed Knot (English Civil War reenactment/walting) and claimed to have a cannon license for that. One must presumably exist anyway, as I've seen plenty of photos of them and similar groups firing cannons at each other...
You'd need a fair amount of wadding behind that kitten, otherwise your windage will be extreme (as would that of the kitten I guess).
I've never bred feral cats so is it possible to get them to the stage where they all weigh roughly the same, are of similar size and have similar ballistic properties? If not, then accuracy will suffer.
In such a short barreled weapon, will the position of all-burnt be expected to be low in the chamber giving a greater calibre length to "steer" the kitten on it's onward flight, or am I bluffing here?
Surely it's better to fire kittens from a more traditional RBL cannon for greater accuracy, although you'd have to coat them in lead first to engage with the rifling?
