This is the strangest argument I've seen on this forum yet.

Thank you.  ;D

We now return you to your irregular dose of gun porn:

The worlds oldest revolver.

Built in 1597 by a weapon produser named Hans Stopler in Nüremberg Germany. The firing mechanism is a type of flintlock and the cylinder holds up to 8 shots. The words "ahead of its time" are thrown around a lot but in this case it is true. For over two CENTURIES afterwards the revolving cylinder with one barrel was not seen again and weapons that could be fired more than once simply had several barrels. (the fact that this gun has only one barrel increases accuracy since in a multibarreled gun the barrels might by teeny tiny bit bent in different directions meaning that they are not hitting the same spot. This is even true in my modern shotgun.)

Mace gun at the Tower of London:

Much like the axe-gun posted before this is not exceptionally functional gun but it offers a single shot (even if inaccurate and hard to aim) and can then be used to bash your enemies' skulls.

.22lr gatling gun:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4i9_kkg30o" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4i9_kkg30o</a>
If I was allowed to pick one gun to own, just for fun, just as something to take to the range and shoot at targets for pure fun... This would be it.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Which one or all of them?

The revolver is more practical than the multibarreled pistols of that time.

The mace may be harder to aim than a regular gun but it does offer one shot from close range, where the inaccuracy is not such a big deal and seems like it would be a pretty decent mace.

The gatling gun has no practical use but that is why I said it would just be a fun-gun. put a hundred tin cans, watermelons and paper targets in front of it and cackle maniacally as you mow down your targets. It's not like it is any dumber waste of money than driving around in your car for fun and the .22lr ammo is the cheapest ammo. (Outside of USA where I've understood that the ammo hoarding and companies using it to milk more money out of gun owners and loonies has driven up the prices.)

I'm guessing the pistol was probably only good if you had lots of money to burn.

No shit. And that's if you can even find it at fucking all anymore. Seriously, the panic is (largely) over and places are still rationing how much .22LR ammo people can buy.

a) I just realized that in the MSG video the revolver's loading port is on the wrong side.

b)

Well... Kinda. It WOULD be better than the other flinlocks of that era but it is an unique piece as it was very complicated to make (and therefore extremely expensive and a show of craftmanship from the gunsmith) and didn't seem to gain popularity.

After all, you might as well carry several flintlock pistols (which would be more reliable) or have a multibarreled pistol (or several) which would all be cheaper and probably more reliable as well. That thing was probably carried by some rich officer who wanted a cool gun that is light to carry. (I am still pointing out that the idea is pretty advanced and once cap and ball guns came to market that would have been a light, reliable and accurate gun compared to the pepperbox revolvers or multibarreled ones of that era.)

Biggest gun of WWII, M1919MII 16-inch gun, coastal artillery version (bigger than the 16 inch guns on battleships). My dad spent all of WWII waiting for some idiot ship or sub to come challenge these guns. None ever did.



I just want to make the point that holy shitballs.

Handguns? For shame, FQA.



I've totally seen the other one of them, in the Tower O' London! I FIT IN IT.



I'm surprised nobody has posted the humble QF 25 pounder. It doesn't look much ON THIS END.

Speaking of weapons that fire nukes:


Davy Crockett. The range on this recoilles gun is so short that those firing it will be under the fallout from the nuke.


Meanwhile, the Soviets had this:

The "Tulip" a 240mm mortar that can be used for firing nukes or conventional ammo and is still the biggest mortar in the world.

Literally the most practical weapon ever.

At least the Tulip can be used to fire conventional ammo as well. AND you can fire it further than the "RADIUS OF DEATH" thereby possibly not making it a suicide attack. (And since it is self propelled the crew can pack it up after firing and drive away as fast as they can. Which is actually a viable tactic and used to protect mobile artillery from counter-batteries.)

Davy Crockett on the other hand is just a dick joke that got out of hands.

Actually, the Davy Crockett was meant to be mountable on jeeps and was safe from the fallout if upwind when stationary.

Edit: I forgot to add, a couple days ago I went to the Renaisance fair in Muskogee, Oklahoma and got a sword from Badger Blades. I'll post pics in a couple days when I hopefully finish making a sheath and get all my other knifes collected up for a good photo opportunity. I'm cleaning out my game room/workshop/storage room/armory, so I've got a good chance to get most of them together.
