    Toy Cannons

    I've mentioned before that I used to collect toy cannons. Mostly Big Bang Carbide Cannons, but also black powder and firecracker. One of the cannons I purchased was a bronze reproduction of a very early firecracker cannon called the Home Guard Safety Cannon. Today I discovered that only 50 numbered cannons were produced between 2001 and 2004. I'd never noticed any numbers. Down off the cabinet it came and quickly discovered it was numbered 02 - 2001. Second produced in the first year. How cool is that?

    Oh. Very nice. Most of mine are still in storage and I'm kind of worried about rust. Here's a very broken webpage of most of my collection. Photos of cannons are still good, but most eveything else is broken.

    I have one similar to the brass or bronze one. Mine isn't the kind that fires, though.

    I have several cannons that go with my lead soldier collections. They fire wooden bullets, using a spring mechanism. I don't have bullets/shells, but I could whittle one out of a dowel and test them, I guess. If a marble would fit, I might try one.
