The Puckle gun was invented in 1718 by James Puckle (1667–1724) a British inventor, lawyer and writer.

It is a tripod-mounted, single-barreled flintlock weapon fitted with a multishot revolving cylinder. It was intended for shipboard use to prevent boarding. The barrel was 3 feet (0.91 m) long with a bore of 1.25 inches (32 mm). It had a pre-loaded cylinder which held 11 charges and could fire 63 shots in seven minutes—this at a time when the standard soldier's musket could at best be loaded and fired three times per minute.


Puckle demonstrated two versions of the basic design: one, intended for use against Christian enemies, fired conventional round bullets, while the second variant, designed to be used against the Muslim Turks, fired square bullets. The square bullets were considered to be more damaging. They would, according to the patent, convince the Turks of the "benefits of Christian civilization."

Ought to be a top seller like the "Zombie bullet" a year or so ago. I think it ought to get out that every US gun owner is now dipping all of his self-defense ammo in bacon fat. I'm petty sure that rumor would get into a few appropriate Mosques and might make them think....just for a second...about the wisdom of this jihad thing with these crazy Americans.

Proudly introducing the new Hornady Turbinator HadjiMax ammo. It's got real pig blood in the tip, and was case lubed with bacon grease. No 72 for YOU! Sending camel jockeys to see Allah since 2013. :thumbsup
