What could be more fun than 17th Century Hand Mortars?

These incredible handheld weapons are discussed by Ian from Forgotten Weapons.

Check out the wheellock hand mortars that turned heads way back in history.

These massive-barreled weapons are unlike anything I have ever witnessed. I’m sure these were built for more bang than power.

Some probably think that would be a great way to celebrate the 4th of July this year.

Special thanks to Ian from Forgotten Weapons for sharing these wheellock hand mortars that may have been lost. They certainly are quite a piece of weapon’s history worth saving.
