John,
This is a very cool video. I especially liked the field gun.

I thought the guy was a little "monty pythonesque".

A number of black powder. Matchlock, Flintlock, Duelling Pistols, Brown Bess, caplock percussi9n shotgun was it? A cannon.

I'd really like a cannon or two. Desktop sized and medium like this one.

Great to watch!
Yes the old field gun certainly went off with a bang!

"monty pythonethque" indeed!
Far too few current custodians would even consider firing their antique arms.
William Keith Neil is definitely one of the good guys.
Marvellous stuff!

His "Spanish Guns and Pistols" came up recently in a discussion of miquelet locks on the ML forums. An epic collector and authority.

Well this link still works.

I must see if I can copy the video to ensure it stays up here. "forever".

By thecway, disappointing to see that "wooden dog house" target with such a small hole from the cannon fire .... Not blown to smithereens a la Holywood.
