THINK BIG – A J.&W. TOLLEY 4-BORE

  • In earlier times, when it comes to waterfowling, only seize counted. Shooting geese and ducks was not a sport, but hard work, very often to earn one’s livelihood. In those times of market hunting, big bore shotguns, so-called punt guns, were an effective method to take out whole flocks of birds while setting on the water. Originally those punt guns were overseized black powder shotguns, sometimes capable to fire one pound of shot at once. With the advent of the self-contained cartridge, they were made in single shot long gun form in huge sizes such as 4 gauge and even bigger at 2 gauge!
