When this native tribesman needed a gun, he built one.
This homemade muzzleloader shotgun uses match heads as a propellant, and it works remarkably well.
Watch it in action!
This crude shotgun is not much to look at it, and it’s slow to load – but it actually works!
It has plenty of power to bury the sinker projectile into the tree, and it evidently has a good deal of recoil too.
It’s amazing what you can do with a little backwoods ingenuity!
