You don’t need a gun big enough to shoot a person, Lucas. Just shoot Ethan with a regular-sized gun.

Oh wait!. That’s not practical, because that would mean you’d have to go to the trouble to find a replacement to help pay the rent.

Ethan doesn’t pay rent too often.

There are a lot of guns that could fire human sized rounds. Most of which are mortars and battleship cannons.

So a “human” sized round would be, at best, 182.8 metres ( or roughly 6 feet) long.

The largest usable mortar “shell” is 240millimetres (or 9.4 inches).
Hell, even a your average battleship cannon fires 45 caliber (40centimetres/15.9 inches).
The amount of force necessary to fire a human-sized round would likely shatter the planet.

Further to that – the Mallet’s Mortar and the Little David (of UK and US origin respectively) only fired a 914mm caliber round, covered in a 3-foot shell. Supposedly, the Little David only had a theoretically effective range of six miles, and that was an artillery cannon that was never actually used in WW2.

“182.8 metres ( or roughly 6 feet)”

“cannon fires 45 caliber (40centimetres/15.9 inches).”

What did I just read? The misplaced decimal I can forgive, but “45 caliber” equating to 16 inches?

Even if you meant 45.0 caliber, that still wouldn’t equate to sixteen inches since caliber is measured in inches and 45.0 caliber would be 45.0 inches, like .45 caliber is 0.45 inches.

Also… bullets are NOT measured by length, but by diameter. You wouldn’t need to fit a human into the barrel lengthwise. Furthermore, human cannons actually exist.

(Yeah yeah, downvote me for being pedantic…)
