Government, in order to avoid panic buying, they say "Fill up everything you can!" thereby creating panic buying! Duuuhhh! and these are the comedians who rule our lives! Huh...

They have had both on there. The musketoon is long for musket rifle. A blunderbuss was a short barrel boarding party weapon with a trumpet style muzzle, once fired they used the thing as a club.

Crude oil so it is technically on topic.

OK, let's at least be technically accurate here! No Pirate, or anyone else, ever did that, it would have blown up in his face!
Blunderbusses were origionally intended for stagecoach guards, and had wide muzzles for three reasons, first, so that they could be reloaded while riding on a bouncing coach, second for the psychological effect on an opponent of having a 6" wide barrel pointed at him, and third to spread the shot REALLY wide at close range (You can't aim off a rattling coach) and, with luck you could get any three of them!
The odd person in extremis may have loaded with a handful of pebbles, but the normal load was buckshot-sized pellets.

Just call me Mister Pedantic! Sad

Ok, Mr KILLJOY!!,, no fuel for you then, tongue

I'm not talking no whimpy 18th century stagecoatch gun, I'm talking late 16th early 17th style BlunderBess, with a more pronounced flaired muzzle. They did stick, iron slag, nails, lead shot, steel shot and all manners of small items in there, when they didnt have lead shot. Long before Billy the Kid rode around.

I simply quote......

"The blunderbuss was an early form of shotgun, and served in similar roles. While fictional accounts often list the blunderbuss as being loaded with various scrap iron or rocks, this would result in damage to the bore of the gun; it was typically loaded with a number of lead balls smaller than the bore"

When someone is flashing a super sharp Cutlass sword at you, you grab what you can find. Smile


OK, no Blunderbusse's. Sorry Indra and Beez, you guys get slingshot's. Huh...

Dave, you get the springer BB gun, and 1 BB,,make it count. Shocked


My ex father in law was sent to Lagos Nigeria to help start up a Reynolds Metals aluminum smelting plant. Him and his wife lived in a gated compound in quarters provided by the company and government. When they would venture into town outside the gates they had a armed escort,,who carried 1 bullet,,no joke.

Needless to say, they stayed around the provided compound store and inside the gates for the most of the 3 years they were there. He made some SERIOUS coin, but it was a tough hot slog.
