The blunderbuss is the one that has my attention!
What is that? What caliber? Where'd it come from?!

If you loaded them all up at once, you could almost outshoot a Beretta 92!

I love the longer ones. You hardly ever see those stateside. What's the origin of that design?

Or arm an 18th Century boarding party. All that is needed are cutlasses.

Yeah, it looks like filbuste actually could do that. A swivel gun would also be a nice thing to have along.

It is a cal.69 and probably a Spanish replica made circa 1970. It can shoot but at close range only...........
