Here’s What Firing a 16th Century Volley Gun Looks Like [VIDEO]

In the 16th century, the volley gun was a weapon of mass destruction.

In the days of single shot firearms, a seven-shot volley gun was worth seven soldiers.

This old piece of warfare technology is shot on video.

Volley guns increased the firing capacity of any army lucky enough to have one. Hungary is said to have used them against the Turkish army.

In this video, the fearsome weapon is discussed and fired for a crowd. Black powder flames and smoke are always a crowd pleaser.

Modern weaponry has advanced, but this weapon would still not be something any soldier would want to face.
