Daddy gots an old Prussian gun circa 1765. Says it is like a .64 caliber. It shoots a ball that looks like on ping pong ball. I don't know how them fought up no war with them cause it takes about a half an hour to load it. You tie a rock to side to make it go off, it gots a spring thing on that deal you tie the rock to and flips over an sparks up this other poweder. And then my grandma had one of them heir looms. She used to make pot holders with.
