There's no discharge in the war!

Hear me out guys.

What do you think the biggest piece of replica artillery one could mount in the bed of a pickup truck would be? would a 2 1/4" bore be too much? i was thinking of mounting a replica black powder cannon to a swivel in the bed of my pick up. The cannon itself weighs ~250lbs so I don't think its too unreasonable. Obviously I'm worried about the force it generates when fired. The easier option is to build/weld a tubular frame inside the truck bed. Think a roll cage in a race car only just in the bed of the truck. The main weak point with that would be how the truck bed mounts to the frame. do you think i would have to reinforce the cage to the frame? constructive criticism welcome

The main purpose of this would be for fireworks demonstrations on the 4th of July and nothing to do with happenings in VA right now

Is it supposed to be able to be fired during movement or only during standstill? Because that's going to majorly change how much powder you can pack in there without crashing your car.

I don't imagine this crashing or tipping a truck even if fired sideways out of the truck bed. with that being said i imagine it being fired sitting still. Probably only getting off 1 shot unless there is a safe place to reload nearby but i don't want the truck bed to break its support bolts and cut the tires when i drive away either.

i think the upsides are pretty huge though even with a single shot capacity. It's a giant deterrent for a crowd of oath breakers advancing on foot and black powder isn't federally regulated at all at any size.

Since this thread is totally not about Virginia, then I’ll tell you a national guard base that is not named Fort AP Hill has 2 old Pattons sitting in front of its main gate with working engines.

Also since we’re not discussing crowd control in a gun free zone against boomers, riding a horse is fun through a city street.

I think this is an example of what you're thinking of, except with a pickup
