Well, what I practice uses no guncotton nor does it use wet plates. These are dry and keep for months without change. They have an ISO rating of about 40 and can be made ortho sensitive. I've gotten panchromatic emulsions but they are too hard to work with in the dark unless you have IR goggles.

But, regarding guncotton (or cellulose nitrate), it comes ready to use from a number of alternative photo supply distributors.
