History of the hand cannon!

When most people think about a “hand cannon” they think about the old 44 magnum “Dirty Harry” pistols

But in ancient history there was a real hand canon, invented by the Chinese in the 12th Century and brought to Europe in the 14th Century.

This is a redneck hand cannon, a Browning 50 caliber machine gun, perfect for deer hunting:

Once in awhile something so totally cool comes out like this Dewalt hand cannon nail gun:

This Nail Gun by DeWALT looks just like an AR-15 and you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence.

Speaking of hand cannons, check out this two gauge shotgun!

It has amazing take down power!
