    Adam already tweeted that the episode won't show the mishap since it wouldn't be right to do so.

    I didn't say they shouldn't - I said they wouldn't.

    As this information came directly from the Mythbusters themselves, talking to a TV news reporter, it's pretty close to definitive.

    Didn't the mythbusters have a special location like say... a runway ... to test cannons?

    They do a lot of explosives (like this stunt) testing at the Alameda County Sheriff's Bomb Range. I'm kind of surprised that anything they did was able to "leave the confines" of the Bomb Range, and that there are residences close enough to be hit (although given the population density of Alameda County, I'm not totally shocked).

    A bomb range is not an artillery range. Bombs go boom and within limits of the bomb, debris isn't scattered all that far. Artillery flies through the air and tends to require more space.

    It's why cannons were tested on the long abandoned runway because things can fly.

    Heck, they tested the duct-tape and wood cannons. And Jamie still hasn't found his cannonball.
