Amazing Old Bangers: 10 Interesting and Unusual Antique Guns

We most certainly do not condone violence here at Webphemera but we do love design. This interesting piece by C Jordan is all about guns. Some of them are so remarkably beautiful that it is easy (almost) to forget their inate deadliness. Take a look at some cool guns.

From the article
The Louis XIII hunting weapon is not only considered the most elegant 17th-century long gun in existence, but it is also one of only three flintlocks known to have been made in the workshop of Pierre and Marin Le Bourgeoys of Lisieux, the gunsmiths who invented the flintlock ignition mechanism.
