BOOM – Signal Cannons from Trident Arms

    It seems that there must be a rampant problem facing the country. People are getting lost in the woods with nothing but a lot of black powder and no means to signal someone. Super-secret ESP must be disabling all flashlights and low cloud cover must be keeping signal fires from being seen. Otherwise, there seems to be no solid reason for the “signal cannon” from Trident Arms other than one can own a signal cannon.

    On second thought, wanting a signal cannon is more than enough reason to own a signal cannon. I mean, who would not want their own muzzle-loading black-powder boom box? I mean, I have absolutely nothing better to do than stuff black powder into a tube to light it off for the express purpose of blowing out nearby windows.

    In all seriousness, Tampa Florida-based Trident Arms is offering for pre-sale a muzzle-loading “signal cannon”. While few details are offered on their website, the cannon itself looks to be about a foot long and ready for bolting to any desk through its base mounting plate. If actually wanting to fire the cannon, that plate will be needed as recoil will likely be a bear.

    For those curious to order one, check out Trident Arms’ website here. No pricing was offered, but for those so inclined the pricing will not be an obstacle.
