    maybe to shoot those mini shells out of otherwise, ouch!

    It's a muzzle loader that uses 209 primers.

    The web site has 11" double barrels, too, but I like the looks of the 6" barrels better.

    Kind of like a Howdah's big brother.....

    It also appears to be a breach loader, not a muzzle loader. Why have the break action for a muzzle loader?

    I remember shooting the Howdah. Didn't hit a thing shooting at the flying clay pigeons, but still had a ton of fun with it!

    The break action is to place the primers on the nipples. I'm guessing it also helps keep moisture out.
