My buddy milled this BP cannon and neat swivel mount. It is the coolest mount. good for a boat/yacht, castle or collection. I am going to bug him about selling it. thought you guys might like to see it.

How does California law view those?

Like black powder rifles?

I always thought it would be cool to have a cannon or beer can mortar.

Cannons are awesome! put some lead fishing weights in it and blast away!

Or show off to the neighbors in the front yard and shoot a wad of paper out of it.:D

Black powder muzzle loading canons are legal.

Do all 3 components have to be separate?
What's the rules on that old breach loader you posted about quite a while ago?
Thanks,

Thanks for the reply.

Are 'beer can' mortars legal too?

Who sells these?


Thanks.

If you are using compressed air, yes. If it uses an explosive charge, then it is a destructive device, I'm pretty sure.

It's been a while since I read up on the subject, but that's what I recall.
