Default What the hell is this thing?

I'm pretty damn sure it's fake, but what the crap is the gun the mayor (guy on far right) is holding? It's got 6 barrels, appears to be like a pepper box rifle, and looks like something Hellboy would use.

If you know anything about a gun, you'd know this thing would revolve the second you fire it, making it impossible to fire with two hands whilst trying to fire with any accuracy.

P.S. I added the thumbnail in case the site shuts down or takes off the picture.

I know, right? My friend paused the movie (which was horrible) cause i was laughing so hard. Seriously though, My Name Is Bruce was crap. Never watch it.

I will definitely be sure to steer clear of it.

Actually as a Bruce Campbell fan, it's an ok movie. It's not supposed to make sense, but to be funny as hell. It's a particular kind of movie

If it was a pepper-box rifle than it would make a ton of sense.
It's basically a low tech shotgun, firing a bullet from each barrel simultaneously.
Perhaps after one fusillade from the gun, it would be hard to hold on to due to heat, but still.

Desperate times...

Looks like a Nock Gun, a seven barreled flintlock used during the late 18th century. Note the barrel in the center, which means it has SEVEN, not six.
