Maybe try cannon.com instead of gixxer.com?

Re: Black powder cannon info wanted

It's not that you're the only one, black powder just isn't as popular anymore. It's fun as hell to load up black powder rifles and shoot but a lot of people just aren't into them. You may need to look into local/federal gun laws as far as manufacturing goes. I don't have a whole lot of experience with black powder but what I do know is black powder is extremely dangerous and you need to know what you're doing. You have to pack everything correctly as well, too much or too little chamber pressure and you run the possibility of having the thing blow up in your face and injuring yourself or others.
