We were so disappointed when they changed those cannons so they couldn't fire any more.
I had one of those, you pull the knob in the back and then let go and it fired like a slingshot. Those were the best. In retrospect, probably not safe firing a plastic BB-sized pellet at that force but man it was fun. I loved pirate Legos. Ooh, and tte little shiny gold coins you could put in a treasure chest, and the little shark with chomping jaws...
