DO YOU LIKE GINS ? how about this "Punt Gun" ? It was first built in about 1850 with a bore diameter of 2 inches (51 mm) and are banned in most countries. It was too big to hold and the recoil could kill someone. In the United States, this practice depleted stocks of wild waterfowl and by the 1860s most states had banned the practice. The Lacey Act of 1900 banned the transport of wild game across state lines, and the practice of market hunting was outlawed by a series of federal laws in 1918.
