I had a chance to attend this year’s artillery competition in Pelham, TN. The event is the place to go for a large representation of different types of working cannons and types of artillery.

They are shooting at targets with live fire and not just displaying the guns with gun powder.

This is only a very small sample of the guns that I saw that day.
