Put it in a box, label it spare cannon parts and put it on a shelf for the next one.

you can connect it to a 4 inch x 12 inch pvc pipe with cap on each end and to a car/bike electric inflator to make a homemade air tank compresser...

Just an idea...

Oh that's easy I've done that before all you need to do to get a breath is depress the shrader stem the metal needle with your front tooth with your lips on the brass part and inhale. You can either put the shrader in the cap for the exchange of bottles or put a shrader in your 1/4'' hose and put the hose in the cap so it could be like a emergency breath thing but not for sustained breathing. It also makes you float.

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

You can make ammo out of the 1/4 hose
Just plug 1 end with hot glue, and wrap tape around it.
