I have a challenge! Who can make the best DIY musket and instructable on how to do so. I will be the judge but I still need contestants.

Would a small signal cannon be acceptable? (The 1" ball fits and we plan on point blanking a watermelon with it at some point using remote ignition, but since it's cast bronze we don't want to make a habit of putting it under a load.)

all props must have orange band so no mistakes occur.

i think this should have a buttload of safety warnings, because if you mess up you basically have a pipebomb....... other than that, great idea! can't make one myself because firearms are no go in holland:/

We need some criteria for this challenge. What will be accepted as a "musket"? How is DIY defined? Is there a maximum percentage of pre-made pieces? How is "best" defined? Attractiveness? Functionality? Power? Range? Also, as Kiteman said, is there a deadline? are there any prizes?
