just to keep from making a separate thread. Interest6inh history

rest of the text:

SCAMP was designed to be controllable and accurate to fire. As such, it featured grips patterned after those found on target pistols, a bore set low over the hand to lower the center of gravity, and a burst-fire mode to allow multiple shots without the problem of prolonged recoil. There was also a recoil compensator built into the muzzle.

The requirement for accuracy led to the design of an original cartridge for the SCAMP. The .223-caliber rifle round was first suggested, but was found to be too powerful for a handgun. The 9mm Parabellum round was also rejected for having a relatively heavy recoil, Into said in an interview. Into had also rejected the .22 Winchester Magnum, 5mm RRM, and .22 Hornet.

The design team eventually settled on the .221 Remington Fireball as the basis of their new cartridge, leading to the design of a .224 caliber center-fire cartridge known as the .22 SCAMP. This round was somewhat shorter and narrower than the Fireball.

More Power - Another Punt Gun

Interesting that there's no forward mount. Hard to tell if this is for shooting birds or people. My guess is birds.

Its hard to tell, but it looks like there might be a mount to the boat that is blocked by his head in the first picture? Surely that isn’t just laying there.

But that’s a big azz gun!

Most cases the gun was tied to the punt (boat) and fired at birds sitting on the water. This is also the reason you can't shoot water foul on the water, they must be on the wing.
