Of all the toys I have have had, nothing is as fun as my Beer Can Mortar. I love making up rounds and then experimenting with how different powders impact my range.
Since I was tearing down the trailer anyway, I decided to have a little fun. I wanted to see if I could shoot my cannon into the wall of the trailer.
I did not know what to expect, and I was a little nervous.
Luckily, there was nothing to be nervous about. The loose fit of the mortar, and the small amount of powder I used kept the can mortar round from doing too much damage.
Actually, the mortar is not designed to be a direct fire weapon. Rather it lobs the rounds up and over to land down on the target. The round probably would have done more damage if I shot it froma farther distance and let the cement filled soda can fall down from the sky.
In the end, it did not matter how much damage the round did, as I was only trying to have a little fun showing off my can cannon.
Once again, I think everyone should own a beer can mortar.
