This is video (courtesy of of a restored, German, World War II era, 75 MM anti-tank gun being fired.This gun used to belong to a VFW hall and was purchased by an artist who painted it pink and put flowers all over it as some sort of peace statement. She sold it to somebody who did not feel the same way and spent a year restoring it.

Two thoughts:

1. I love the fact that while the guy is giving you a history and description of the gun, fully automatic machine guns are being fired somewhere very close to him. AND, at about the 4:00 minute mark some kind of projectile hits the mountain right behind him. A little research uncovered the likely shooting range - a place called Flatiron Mountain, Arizona.

2. I hope the guy that pushed the button, that fired the gun, had earplugs.
