Picture of Loading and Fireing

Stick some gunpowder in it followed by a small piece of tissue then a BB. (Then i stuck a small black rock as the fuse cause i ran out of fuses)
Then take a lighter or a match and light the fuse or black rock on fire. ^.^
(the black rocks come out of fireworks)
Have fun

Try using pull string fireworks from party poppers, they work great.

nice! I've gotta make one of these i think we have a 22 calli pistol I know we have a 22 rifle I shot it wen I was 6.


ya my grandma has on i guess I'll ask her for a few bullets and make a triple shot!


What if the cannon spins around, and shoots some one lol. I don't think a triple shot will work.

Just anchor it down.
