Finally got good weather to test fire the CW Field Gun that I finished restoring. My sidekick and Good Friend in all this @redbob and his wife Nurse Mary and a few friends got together this past Sunday and test fired the cannon. It went off without a hitch (almost) but Nobody died. It fired kinda as it should and a Great Time was had by all.
If y'all remember @redbob and I made a road trip to PA to pickup a cannon last fall. Well after 3 plus months I finally got it restored. I field stripped it, sanded all the wood down and applied a 1/6 inch coat of marine epoxy, then sanded that, primed and painted. All the hardware was removed...
