The Practice of being impacted by a cannonball, at point-clear reach.
The execution technique included the detainee being attached to a firearm with the upper piece of the little of his back leaning against the gag. At the point when the weapon is discharged, his head apparently goes straight out of sight exactly forty feet. The arms take off both ways, high open to question, and fall a hundred yards separation. The legs drop to the ground underneath the gag of the weapon, and the body is blown to bits.

Tributes portray blood pouring from his nose and ears like water from a channel.
Regardless of whether you were the unfortunate beneficiary of the gun or an unfortunate spectator at a messed up execution, you'd be ensured a Macabre display
