View Full Version : Does anyone know...

17th Dec 2007, 07:55
Does anyone know where or from whom I can buy a fully-functioning harpoon cannon, the kind found on whaling ships, complete with harpoons? (it's not necessary that the harpoons still contain explosives heads, I assume they won't and they'd be easier to import if rendered inert anyway). It doesn't have to be new...surplus is OK if it still works or is easily repairable.

Any leads are appreciated. My brother just bought one of those .50 BMG caliber sniper rifles and I refuse to concede him the position of having the funnest, coolest gun in the family to shoot when we all get together out at the country place.

Certainly sets a high standard for late entries in the "nutso" competition.

Not nutso. Say rather, "Dedicated to Fun".

Don't go for one o' them wooosy little things, get yerself a real man's gun.

Oh, BTW, if yer get one, don't shoot it at 4,430 M/sec. Yer likely shoot yersel' up the bum.

I was going to suggest Japan for a second hand harpoon gun, but the whale killing season is just starting, so all theirs are probably in use.

You could try Iceland.

AMF, a few keystrokes on our national web auction site found 3 different ones for sale. HereŽs the cheapest:


Let me know if you are happy to spend US $ 18000 on a joke, and IŽll send you the link. :)

Oh I think we can do better than that,here yer go 100 megatons of instant sunshine,well it wudda been but it even frightened Ivan so he took some of the gunpowder out before he dropped it,prolly just as well for the pilot.

That pointy bit on the front could have somebody's eye out. Dangerous things yer H-bombs.

Brick, MIRVS? Pah, yer don't need MIRVs if yer can shoot straight.:)

17th Dec 2007, 13:43
Well done, Mr. Draper.

Proving once again and definitively, I'd say, that size matters!


MIRVs are the nuclear equivalent of the shotgun. Not as dramatic as the six-gun shoot out, but a heckuva lot more effective.

P.S. Our MIRVs CEP is pretty freakin' close. Classified and all that, but it's pretty impressive!

If he works in Dzerzhinsky Square, wouldn't his name be Ivan, not Manual. We haven't been to war with the Spanish for ages.........
