That's an old American tradition.... Do you remember the anvil shooting in the Movie "Shane"??

How would that work with Pyrodex powder? :idea: :nono: :blowup:

Did you see the hole in the ground where that anvil landed. Imagine that landing on a car or someones house or if it hit someone. Yikes! That is a hobby for someone with wide open spaces. Heck that anvil might of gone high enough to be picked up on radar. I'm all for having fun but you know when reality sets in, I only have but one anvil and no safe place to play. :roll:
