    The chemical description of charcoal, sulfer and saltpeter is BLACK POWDER. The chemical makeup of SMOKELESS POWDER is completely different. I wonder if this weapon would fire using modern smokeless powder.

    I came here to prove a friend wrong about a shooter he plays with guns in space in one level, the level is in a space station that HAS oxygen, and oxygen is flammable, so should the bullet light the oxygen in a space station or ship? Because there were failed Apollo missions where the astronauts died because of a spark. So a gun shooting of into a space station should ignite the whole area. Correct?

    Modern gunpowder (or propellant) is not made up of charcoal, sulfur and potassium nitrate but is a mixture of nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin. And it will fire in a vacuum.
