My wife bought this cannon for me for Christmas and I absolutely love it! It is very well made and has a perfect nickel plate finish on the barrel that shines like chrome. I have fired it EVERY SINGLE DAY at least once a day since Christmas. It is my new daily ritual. I have put over 100 rounds of .490 swaged round ball with .015 thick patch using 25 grains of ffg powder and easily over 300 blank load firings. It's accurate enough to hit a 6 inch target at 10 yards. For blank loads I use 45-50 grains of ffg powder with two squares of toilet paper packed tight. It makes a very loud boom for such a small cannon. I once set off a car alarm from 75 yards away. It only weighs 4 pounds but it's a ton of fun! You can see videos of my cannon firing on youtube. Just search "mickeymurrs" and see for yourself how awesome this little cannon is in action. Anything that's this fun is worth every penny of the price.
