    Antique 2 Gauge Shotgun

    This old 2 gauge percussion muzzle loading shotgun was mounted in a boat called a punt. It was used to shoot ducks in the days of market hunting.

    You would float up to a raft of ducks, and when you were in range you would shoot. The demonstration proves that they were very effective.

    Have you seen the vid of them with on the boat? They have a whole bunch of balloons out in the lake and shoot them from about 60 yards away (they were simulating how it used to be used).

    Those are some big guns

    That thing gives "shooting fish in a barrel" a whole new perspective. Punt gun - They should have called it, The Kickoff Gun. Punt sounds so meek.

    Either way, that thing is cool!

    I wonder what that would do to a row of propane tanks?
