2. The Punt Gun

The ‘punt gun,’ used to be somewhat common among commercial waterfowl hunters.

What’s so special about this gun? It is capable of killing upwards of 50-100 birds in a single shot. They were too heavy and the recoil too strong for a hunter to fire them by hand. Instead, they were (usually) mounted to small, often flat bottomed, boats known as ‘punts.’
