Reply Lots of restrictions on hunting in US states. Looks like you can’t carry a locked and loaded cross bow in California. Reply “Lots of restrictions on hunting in US states.” Sorry, I meant simple possession, as in, competition. Just going to the range, etc… Reply That ain’t a Trebuchet. (The sounds of squeaking wheels and mules snorting and whips cracking) This is a Trebuchet. Reply Crocadile JWM Reply Well I prefer to keep a 20 barrel Ribauldequin handy for close encounters. Just in case. Reply I keep my trebuchet loaded with Greek Fire. Reply Dude! You got the recipe? Please share! Reply Likely something like molten roof tar, that sticks on you, burning you worse. An ugly way to die, and the screams demoralizing the rest of the troops… Reply Napalm…It smells like Victory. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwipk77M3vH2AhUthIkEHQ5yCp4QwqsBegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dk26hmRbDQFw&usg=AOvVaw2CRYTvqS_oZxG_yOiwuAQt A 5 gallon bucket of asphalt roof coating from HD would probably blind or choke a tank if it landed in the right spot. Greek fire ignited on contact with seawater and would keep burning even when fully submerged. A fearsome naval weapon in an era where ships were still all made of wood. Palmolive dishwashing detergent, as Madge said, “You’re soaking in it!” Reply Not my grandmother’s secret recipe! Why, it has been handed down for generations! Reply People near Morton Illinois call that a pumpkin chunker. Reply https://www.punkinchunkin.com They are looking for a place to stage the 2022 competition. Reply what do they do at all hallow’s eve? pump kin. Reply LOL , a gunm shop with a sense of humor. Reply I’ll take a guillotine and 2 extra blades. Yes that’s right… Rusty, Rusty Shackleford. Reply If you find one and when you’re done with it (yeah, I know), please send it the hell up here to Canada! Reply It was a 70’s fad I think to have things like suits of armor, crossed swords and spiked ball-n-chains on plaques, and cauldrons used as planters. I’ve always enjoyed pairs of stone lions and canons personally. But to each their own. Reply Time to crack down on those ghost lances and 80% halberds. Reply ” Bring yer pretty face to me axe.” I have a few medieval weapons in the collection. Or at least working, real weapons, and not wall hangers. Of course, being a Blacksmith, I can and have made swords and axes. As well as the carriage for a 12 pound gun. Found a civil war era cannon for sale years ago and me being me, I refuse to have any weapon not in functional, working order. Built the caisson and have the horses to pull it with as well. Perhaps I should build a Trebuchet as well. Only problem will be raising and training enough oxen to pull the dang thing. Reply Neither do swords, spears, cannons or flamethrowers. I know I’m missing a few other things. Reply what’s the proper term for a plurality of swiss pikemen? asking for a friend who’s almost out of hardtack and pemmican. Reply Landsknechte Reply german. swiss is reislaufer. what goes before it? throng? Reply Falang Reislaufer… The Swiss pikemen have been guarding the pope of Rome for 500 years, they don’t take prisoners. Einenladerhosenundtshtickingstdemennen. You’re welcome. Reading these comments suddenly reminded me of Monte Pythons Holy Grail. Bring out yer dead! Reply You can take my trebuchet when you pry it from my cold, dead hand…. Actually, you’re gonna need a 3/4 ton truck with a receiver hitch and a 2″ ball. I used pressure-treated wood and this thing is so heavy. I tried to capture a period correct recreation so the wheels are not very street-worthy….. Reply Depending on how that bucket is loaded that thing should throw a 14lb bowling ball 250+ yards if you built the rest of it right. Pro tip: Selling these things at a Renaissance Festival is a money maker but the people who run such a shindig take a dim view of parking lot sales. Pro-Pro tip: Either calculate how far the one you build will theoretically throw in advance or find a bowling alley that’s going under so you can get cheap ammo. Even bright pink balls are easy to lose when these things chuck them farther than you expect. Smooth “triggers” make a bigger difference than you’d likely expect but when you get the release just right with a smooth trigger… wooah boy, now youre cookin’ with gas. The first time you get it all near perfect the jump in range is damned impressive. [Also, if you’re ever out near Terryall Reservior, just west of Terryall in Colorado and find a bunch of bright colored 14lb bowling balls in the woods, I’d appreciate them being returned for “reloading” purposes. I’ll even pay you for them.] Reply Will you pay for the body I found under the projectile? Reply Nah. You can give those to possum as chew toys. Reply Just prop the body back up all Vlad the Impaler style. The round is re-useable, no? Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
