A cannon projectile fired at a fun show (Did we just say fun show? We meant gun show.) recently traveled almost two miles before blasting a 15-inch hold in a Wyandotte couple’s home.

“It’s huge,” Derek Derwin, a sheriff’s detective, told NewsOK.com said of the projectile.

“They were used during the Vietnam War.”

The projectile was shot from a 105 mm howitzer cannon at the Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot and Trade Show.

The “family event” in Wyandotte featured helicopter rides, armored carriers, firearm rentals and sniper shoots, according to the official website. Relax. It’s truly for familes. The event listing on its homepage is in Comic Sans. That’s shorthand for “Party!”
