Black Friday is just another day, so is the number 666, Walking under a ladder isn't bad luck, just stupid- you'll get a can of paint dropped on your head. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
My best friend got married on Friday 13th, been married to the wonderful gal 52 years now.
I own a black cat, sweetest cat ever. Sleeps with me and momma.
Me superstitious? Nah.

I never shot anything bigger than a 10 ga, but I can bet you wouldn't want to shoot an 8 ga from a rocking chair at the edge of the porch. :lol:

I wouldn't mind shooting an old school black powder punt gun. Of course they aren't meant to be shoulder fired. They are usually mounted to a boat.

Mas thats :cool: dude, but where was that photo talkin :?: ,enlighten Me.

hi i remember reading in an old field and stream mag. about these guns. you are quite correct in that they were mounted on punts, sometimes with a system of some sort that fired 3 or 4 barrels at once. i seem to recall that they were used around the chesepeake bay area and other areas in the market hunting days. i've also seen photos in outdoor life some time ago about some english guy who built these things!! in a 4 ga. and a 1 ga. ouch!!!can you imagine what a box of bismuth would cost for these. pblsyd

You know, there were also some punt guns in the form of ground mortars and they sometimes were not even numbered gauges. Biggest one I heard of was an A gauge and that was a 2" bore diameter!! :shock:
