... Was nice to get up the cool mountains for a weekend of shooting. blasting, laughter, BBQs, bonfires, visiting old friends & making new ones. Lots of folks met for pizza & beer in Pinetop Friday night prior to camping.

... The 90MM cannon (Damage, Inc.) was obviously a huge hit. We lit up a 5 gallon bucket of Tannerite, lots of night-time belt-fed tracer work. Was a barrel of laughs. Maybe got three hours of sleep Friday & Saturday nights. Constant gunfire from 8AMish to midnight - Can't get more fun than that!

... More pics and video of the cannon to follow

(.MOV) LIGHTING A BONFIRE THE AZ WAY (More .WMV formatted videos of cannon and Tannerite further down in this thread)

- Checking nitrogen level prior to firing

- Go belt-fed or go home

- Live round

- Riding the cannon

- Looking for the best spot to witness 5 gallons of Tannerite going off

- Who needs the tripod anyways

- Gettin' ready for a 950 yard shot

- Grenade (inert warhead) launching

- Some gear

- Uzi rocks

- (5) gallons of Tannerite, almost everyone contributed a bottle or two

- Prepping for another shot


... An exhausting but killer weekend! Carbine10 and his son were absolute great campsite neighbors - the BEST!

How much would a live morter or cannon cost?

Are there any transferable cannons or morters around?

Those are some sweet ass pics, GOD BLESS AMERICA THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

... Ha, those were probably the most FAQ I heard this weekend

... That is a transferable 90MM cannon. I hear each reloaded round runs ~$70. The cannon is a DD and Damage, Inc. can get you your own for about ~$75K

... Here's a funny video (camerman was Turkish I think) of the cannon firing, some still and the Tannerite. What was funny was that the shooter kept missing until a fellow AZ ARFCOMer
took over the reins to finally "Get'r Done"

Arizona........looking better all the time. After two visits, I liked it a lot. After these pics, I like it a whole lot! Hawaii has the finest weather in the world, but it is an anti-gun socialist hell! Thanks for the great pics and for reminding us that there are great, free Americans still in this country.

... Correct

... Although there were quite a few ARFCOM AZHTF folks in attendance, this was not an ARFCOM originated / managed event.

... Sorry you couldn't make it at the last minute bro, it was held right up near the "old stomping grounds"

Mixing that Tannerite by hand couldn't be toxic.........naaaaaaaaa.

I didn't see the thread either.

All the discussion was in the "Organized Shoot" forum. I thought that forum was for match-shoots so I didn't frequent it as much.

Oh well. There'll always be another.
