Mas thats dude, but where was that photo talkin :?: ,enlighten Me.Maser said: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.
Had to be a Brit :!: , But 4ga&1ga,pblsyd :lol: what kind of nutter would want to...Wait your turn Im next :!:pblsyd said: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
Yeah Mas,I think they call it a concusion grenade :!:Maser said: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:
