Yep, possibly 37mm anti-tank gun from a small boat. River crossing?

I do love the 37mm Anti-tank gun. I've watched "Infantry Weapons and Their Effects" training film so many times, I've worn out the tape. The film has some wonderful "action" sequences of shooting the 37mm with a full crew.
Love to have one in my collection, but I'm afraid the neighbors won't like it!!!

Yeah, neighbors can be intolerant at times. Wanted a civil war cannon on the front lawn to fire off a shot each morning at flag raising. The flag was okay, the cannon shot got nixed. Go figure. :confused:

Intriguing. I've thought at times of getting a Sundial Alarm cannon which fires every day at 12:00noon. I know Dixie Gun Works has them, but at $275.00, is a little steep for my money.
Oh well, maybe when I win the lottery (yea, right!!!)
