Or where did that cannonball go?

The cannonball was supposed to blast through an array of water barrels and a cinderblock wall. Supposed to. Instead it hit the wall, a hill, a house, and Jasbir Gill's Toyota Sienna. Now do you see why they tell you not to try this at home?
These guys are generally very safety conscious but sometimes everyone screws up.

That sounds like a cartoon.The accident occurred Tuesday afternoon at an Alameda County Police bomb range adjacent to Santa Rita Jail, about a half mile outside of Dublin. The gun had lifted slightly from its intended position just before it fired, putting the steel round over the water barrels, off the hillside, and 700 yards East. There it bounced through the front door of a home, up the front stairs, through a bedroom—past a sleeping family—out the wall, over a six-lane road, and on through the van's front passenger window.

They are like a cartoon. I watch it as a bonding experience with my son, in the same spirit that I would watch the three stooges.
They also fired a granite cannonball from the loading docks over in Alameda that they never recovered either. It's amusing that they look for it every time they're out there, like it hasn't occurred to them that it likely went through one of the buildings in the city.

That video is great.
I like the interview at the end.

They should have used hollow points to avoid the over-penetration.
