Punt Gun
Punt Gun
This isn’t a prop, but a real gun that used to be commonly used in commercial waterfowl hunting.
They were called “punt guns,” because they were used in a kind of boat called a “punt.” The guns fired
almost a pound of shot, and could kill fifty birds in one shot. Unsurprisingly, they were outlawed when
they devastated wild bird populations.
