I forgot what thread we were using when talking about large calibers but the old-time explorer Sir Samuel White Baker shot a 2 bore. I stole a few photos off another forum that shows one.

NO THANK YOU!!!!

A guy here owns one , on recoil he starts running backwards a few steps to stay upright and after maybe three or four steps the recoil will literally swing him around.

Don't think anything that gets hit by a slug from that gun will ever get up again !
