"Loose cannons" seems like a good euphemism for an ED commercial.

They have a women's chapter called "The Loose Canyons".

"Hours after responding to the shooting, deputies found another man who had a gunshot wound to his buttocks. He was treated at the scene by medical personnel."


What an ass!

If you're a grown man and a member of a motorcycle gang (or any gang for that matter) you deserve whatever horrible shiat happens to you.

Motorcycle gangs are still a thing? I thought bikers were posers these days.

Have no fear, dittybopper is here.

My cannon:

i46.tinypic.com

3" bore 6 caliber mortar, can throw a 15 ounce-size can half full of cement, weighing about 1 lb, 300+ yards on an ounce of Fg black powder.

I only fill the cans half-way because they fly straight that way, like a giant shotgun slug or badminton shuttlecock.  You have to load them nose first thought, otherwise the force of the propellant blows the 'skirt' out and ruins accuracy.

While "Loose Canon" might refer to nautical weaponry I submit that any siege piece would be satisfactory in this situation.  For example, ballistae would do nicely.

Biker club calling "the law"? Never heard of this before. I thought disrespect for, and disdain of any authority figures was pretty much their thing. Makes me think they are only posers. Cant see the 1% gangs- sorry "clubs" (snicker) would sink so low as to ask for help from cops or medics. Isn't the typical M.O. to drop them at the er door and leave? I am dissapoint.
That being said, aren't the outlaw clubs just organized drug rings? Maybe I just watch too much Tv.

there is a huge quantity of MC 'gangs' across the country that exist for good time fun and they benefactor sick children, veterans, retired police etcetera. the hoodlum scumbag groups are much fewer in number. going by the article their marksmanship skills are lacking.

He was probably trying to hide the injury. He didn't want to be embarrassed.

They don't necessarily deserve it, but they sure as shiat don't deserve any sympathy either. It's a meh situation.

I was at the Firehouse in Manila when a motorcycle gang rolled in.  I asked the girl sitting with me who they were.  She replied, "Oh, that's the Mad Dogs Motorcycle Club.  They're really nice."  She said this as they were kicking other patrons from their tables to make room for their fat guts.  So I corrected her, "To you.  They're really nice to you."

Not yet.

Usually, I'm too busy loading, aiming, and firing it to take pictures or video.  The nice thing about a cannon that size it that it's *JUST* small enough that one person can load and fire it.

I was going to shoot it over the weekend, but the weather turned windy with some rain, so I passed.   I shoot it into a large pond because it's the only place where you can effectively see that the downrange area is clear, and where you can see the impact.

A farm field would work as well, but most of them start planting this time of year, and the cans tend to bury themselves making finding them problematic.  No farmer likes to have his equipment dredge up cans full of cement.

I use the cans because they are cheap and the right size, 2.90" in diameter.   Cast zinc cannonballs the right size would probably run me about $10 - $12 a piece.   The cans cost me almost nothing.

I used to do security at a biker bar so Im getting kicks out of these replies.

/I don't even ride
//If their colors said MC on it they were not allowed to wear them inside, if their colors said RC we allowed them to wear those.
///Guest came in one night wearing a Sons of Anarchy T-shirt and it says MC on it. The owner made him cover it with a piece of tape.
////For the most part the 1&er's just seemed like silly caricature's. Although they do tend to police themselves, I never had any problems with them. Biker biatches on the other hand are pains in the ass

At this point 99.999999%, of them are just larping.  There's a local place around here called "Cook's Corner" where all the CPAs and attorneys go to play dress up on weekends and they sincerely believe that other people think they are tough guys.  You should meet one of these guys during the week.  They hitch up their pants and casually mention that they rode their "hog" to Cook's Corner last Sunday and turn their head towards the open road as they shoot side glances at you from behind their prescription bifocals, expecting you to be impressed, or frightened or.....something.  It's kind of cute, like talking to a 5 year old dressed like a cowboy.  I usually give them an oooo or aaaahhh to make them feel big and important.  They live for that and it doesn't cost me anything.

I just don't get to shoot it that often.  Last time I shot it was last summer.

It's not like taking a rifle down to the range (which I don't get to do much either):  It requires a remote area with a decent backstop and a long view.  If you are carrying it more than 20 feet from the car, you need 2 people, because it's farkin' heavy (70 lbs, at a guess).

You don't want to shoot it near houses, because people can be understandably freaked out by even small cannon fire:  It doesn't sound like a gun shot, it's a deeper, louder *BOOM*.

I'm working on a way to fire a 'salute' at our block party this summer, with a projectile consisting of wet paper towels so that it will make a decent noise but not be a danger, so if I get a chance to record it, I will.

BTW, I *AM* anxious to fire it again:  I've installed Lock'N'Load cannon ballistic software on my home computer, and I bought a magnetic protractor to slap on the barrel so I know the elevation.  I want to get accurate distance v. elevation information so I can derive the velocity.  My father is understandably reluctant to let me borrow his chronograph to measure it.

Mostly, it just boils down to "it's damned inconvenient to fire it", so I don't get to do it as often as I would like.  I can shoot archery in the back yard all I want (and I do), but this is different.

I know a lot of people that are in MCs that are harmless, but they want to give the impression that they are bad asses. It's kind of funny. But  I stay away from any of the 1%ers, too much drama follows them around. The other 2 patch clubs aren't bad, but I don't get in to that scene either.
