    Something tells me they won't be utilising the bomb range anymore,and it's a good bet their EOD guy is also not gonna be participating in any future experiments.I'm sure if a cannonball blasted thru my house,my dog woulda run in looking at me like what the hell was that

    Interesting that they cannonball had the power to go up the stairs, but not just bust through the stairs.

    It was a bomb range not a shooting range. They shouldn't be firing projectiles at a bomb range anyway.

    The truth is that those guys are special effects artists and not really qualified to do a great many things that they do. I'm sure the Sheriff's Departments EOD guy is good at what he does but if I were a gambling man I'd be willing to wager that there's not anyone who was in Artillery anywhere near that place when they pulled this stunt.
