Real shooting Blunderbuss

A blunderbuss is a muzzle-loading firearm with a flared, trumpet-like barrel which discharges lead shot upon firing. It is the predecessor to the shotgun.

The term blunderbuss is of Dutch origin namely donderbus, a combination of the Dutch terms donder (thunder) and bus (gun).
