Historica Germanica's Falconet.

A small anti-personnel, muzzle-loaded cannon.

This was the only decent cannon shot I got all weekend. Timing is crucial and different on each cannon.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrew73] Yeah I think that makes it really.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/kth_friend] It helps, but it's no panacea. What I'd really like to do is shoot one of these with a 1000fps HD camera. :)
