Frequently Asked Questions

Are your cannons considered firearms and do they require special permits?
These signal and saluting cannons are NOT considered firearms and do not require a firearm permit. That being said, they do produce a very loud bang and flash. So NEVER ever stand in front of cannon while firing and NEVER place anything in the barrel during firing. Anything other then the prescribed 10 gauge shells will cause the breech to blow out, which can be very dangerous.
