Thanks Terry, I really like this little cannon!

Thanks Jeeper!
I already picked up some .440 round balls but have not tried them yet. Still need some thin patches.

I have shot only signal loads so far but they work great.
You are right about it wanting to go backwards ....

Thanks for the input on this cannon.

I had problems with logging in.

I may not be completely sane, but at least I don't think I have the power to influence the weather.
