Last year at about this time we posted a story about a diminutive piece of pocket artillery called the mini cannon. It was a real, working gun that used gunpowder, tiny steel balls and what looked like firecracker fuses to wreak havoc on all sorts of common items. Well, the guy who made it has been busy since last year, and now he’s back with something equally cool…the mini crossbow (hat tip to Suburban Bushwacker for the find)

Which one would you rather have, the cannon or the crossbow?
