Oh please....don't do that to me....I bought WAY too much at an online auction last week. 

Simply put, it's a good thing I just bought my wife a new ring, 'cause it might offset the cannon, sword, and the 1919 Belt loader I bought.

Blues Bros!  Nice!  I just PVR'd the movie the other day.

I'm really looking forward to getting the Cannon- I was hands on with one in the UK a few years ago and wished I'd bought it then.  As a result, I really wanted this one...so I paid more than I'd expected to for it.

The 1919 belt loader I got for a bit of a 'steal'.  I've seen them going for double what I paid.  The box isn't in great shape, but the tool looks to be in good shape overall.

As for the rings...well...I went to Pandora and got the wife a 'big bling' ring for about $110....which looks nice, but ain't even cubic zirc quality...but she 'subtly' asked for a BIG RING.

Then I went to Peoples and got her a 1.28 Karat solitaire...she wanted something nice for our 19th anniversary next month.  I hope she realizes that this means she's getting a whole lot less for our 20th next year.

I'm going to spring the 'big bling' Pandora on her on the 'day of'...then a couple of days later we've got a gathering of some friends where I'll give her the real one.  I'm gonna be in the bad books for about 2 days.  I hope 1.28 karats will make up for that.

Some Air Force stuff starts at 17, the item at 191 appears to be really cool to a land-borne person like myself.

If I didn’t already have an USAAF A-2 aviator’s Jacket, lot #136 would be great! :nod:

Must be a typo. For a second I thought I read $3,100 CAD!

No typo. And a word of caution, don't piss off NavyShooter.

A 3 pounder on a garrison mount....looks fairly nautical....it'll go well in my garage, and maybe someday if I get my office cleaned up it'll fit in there instead (assuming 9D lets me bring it inside.)


Yes...that price is right.  As far as I can tell it normally sells for about a $5K cannon with that carriage, so not a bad deal even with shipping.  There's a place in NS that sold/sells similar ones - the one image shows the barrel insert/liner, so it's good for 90,000 psi. 


This will be my 3rd cannon - my first was a 1.5" smoothbore on a carriage I built myself with a barrel I got at a gun-show.  The second is a little 10 gauge breech-loading signal gun.

If the Fenians ever try again you are going out the door first with your battery ;)

Little is only applicable in this case. I fired my neighbours 10 gauge shotgun when I was about 12 years old. Knocked me on my ***.

As a signaling device, it is exempt.

As a proscribed antique (fuse fired) it is exempt.

Or so I have been made to understand by those with greater knowledge in the legal sense than I have.
