    best part is the guy firing it, he cannot even reach the trigger with the right hand, it needs like a 45 cm index finger in order to fire it

    Huh yeah I just noticed that lmao. I wonder what the logic was behind making their big gun literally just a gun with the size slider site to max? It's like if a rifle was just a submachine gun but physically twice the size. This was the height of mans hubris and folly, we shall never again reach such creative heights. Alas.

    from what I know, it was intended as a sort of super gun to hit flying birds in flocks (source)

    I'm not a hunter myself, but I know that for hunting birds is better to use ammo that spreads out tiny balls, because birds are weak and because of the wider spread.. so basically this is just literally what it looks, an over-sized hunting rifle made on purpose to shoot down as much birds as possible before they fly away

    Yep. It's an oversized shotgun, intended to be fired from a pintle mount on a boat.

    Ah right that makes a lot more sense then how it was displayed in the first picture. I wonder what the recoil would be like shooting something like that in a row boat like in some of those pictures, how much would it move the boat? Also 419 ducks in a single shot is a ridiculous number

    How is that other guy holding the barrel without burning his hand? You are not supposed to hold the barrel when the gun is being fired.

    For instance in self defense, never grab the barrel, you grab the guy's wrist and try to manipulate it from there.

    How can you be so eager to submit to some which rapes woman and makes hippie bastards?

    I see you missed my previous post, and the wiki link in it.

    You know, there is one thing I've always found hard to believe. If Jesus was indeed a farce, and if his apostles knew that he had in fact not risen from the dead, then why would his apostles give up everything, traveling far and wide to spread the message of some dead dude.

    It seems pretty crazy to continue it after his death, especially considering the risks to one's own life. The fact that it was able to spread as it did is fascinating.

    It spread by bird, don't act like you aren't responsible for this. Every thing christians have ever done is on your shoulders Diamat.

    Just remember what Bruce Wayne's aunt Mary said before Spiderman's uncle Jor-el exploded krypton; that with great responsibility comes great power.
