      Old school bugle rifles

      Did rifles ever have those big bugle-looking muzzles on them like in Beauty and the Beast and Family Guy?

      Yes they did, but I believe most of them were smoothbores (not technically rifles).

      Google "blunderbuss" and once the page loads, click the Images tab.

      Ah yes, the good ol' Blunderbuss. Had a field trip once in elementary school at Old Deerfield (site of the book Boy Captive of Old Deerfield) and in one place they had a Blunderbuss. The guy showed one and when he said they could load it with nails or whatever they could find, I was sold.

      Yep, it's a blunderbuss. And contrary to popular gun myth, the purpose of the bell-shaped muzzle was not to encourage the spread of shot, but rather to make reloading easier and more fumble-free.

      I don't want one. It would be kinda cool to load it with nails for HD. That would SUCK for the BG!

      Would suck for you, too, once your local DA learned about it.
