Cheers. Those are giblets and entrails in his hook hand, and a 6 barreled shotgun in his normal one. Because two barrels are for pansies.

And now the fluff: The maestro wandered the wastelands for many years searching for the things that always eluded him. Mandolin strings, a free meal, and a paying gig. After years of frustration he decided the best thing to do was to cut off his hand. His hope was that a bluesy nickname like "five finger jack" might help with his music career. Unfortunately, most settlements dont want to pay a one handed mandolin player and, while raiders are less picky about how many limbs their musicians have, they are less than interested in traditional Irish music. Now he walks the ruins with his six barreled shotgun and hook hand disemboweling all who take the piss out of him.

Great fluff. I missed the shot gun. Can it fire all tubes simultaneously? :D

Only once by the currently armed character, the second time will have to be fired by anyone that has two or more arms (not counting the last shooter's torn off arm!) :lol:

Nah, this is the weapon you want:

IIRC, it's a rifle though, not a shotgun... ISTR the character made it from a couple of side-by-side elephant guns. He's firing solids, so if it's a shotgun there's no choke on the barrels. Love the speed loaders!

Cheers,

Aaargh! Bob's some historian - he dated Henry Nock about a century too soon (he died in 1804, the year the Royal Navy gave up using his volley gun) and although it's a smoothbore it wasn't a shotgun, it was designed to shoot only one ball per barrel* (some early versions had longer, rifled barrels). It's *only* about .50 cal, the Brown Bess was .75 cal and most Baker Rifle about .625 (for commonality with most pistols and carbines used by the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars).

*O.K., some people loaded "Buck-and-Ball" in muskets, but the Nock Gun must have been enough of a bitch to load without that added complexity...

Cheers

I took note of the Shotgun/rifle discrepancy, as for the historical aspect I know nothing about the piece at all! Thanks for the information.

BTW, the speed loader for the quad barreled shotgun is excellent!

Tinker, if youve got six barrels you dont need to reload. To be honest, you dont even need to shoot it. People just see it and run :lol:
Below is the gun that inspired it. I just wish i could read the article.

That was the Henry Nock Volley Gun Tink posted a link too. It was also used by Richard Widmark in the John Wayne version of "The Alamo"...

Whoa! Looks like a home-made pump-action Pepperbox (or Gatling) designed for cartridges or shot shells... Deranged, but FUN!

If you don't trust your aim, try a Crow's Foot Pistol...
