"Earlier this week in GunTec, we were working with this early 'back action' Parker shotgun in 11 gauge - that's right, 11 gauge. Parker only chambered about 200 guns in 11 gauge, before settling on 10 gauge and 12 gauge as their standard offering.
I got this from MidwayUSA.

The Biggest Gun

Krupp quickly complied, presenting Hitler the Gustav Gun—named in honor of family patriarch Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach. The biggest gun ever built, it weighed a crushing 1344 tons, including its railway carriage. With its breech block, the entire machine stood 4 stories tall, 20 ft. wide and 140 ft. long. Moving, positioning, loading and maintaining this monster required a 500-man crew commanded by a major general.

The Gustav's 800mm bore accepted two giant projectiles: a 10,584-pound high-explosive shell and a 16,540-pound concrete-piercing shell. Though it didn't deliver the range of the Paris Gun, the Gustav could strike targets up to 29 miles away.

I'll bet it took a lot of compressed air to pop that cork!

The top barrel fires .42 caliber pistol rounds, while the second, smaller barrel on the bottom holds a load of buckshot. When he was all finished packing guns into his guns, LeMat brought the prototype to his cousin, a U.S. Army major named Beauregard. Beauregard also thought the gun was a great idea, because gun madness is a hereditary disease passed down along bloodlines, and tried unsuccessfully to get the Army to equip all of their cavalrymen with it.

The SPP-1 Underwater Pistol was made in the USSR for use underwater by Soviet frogmen as an underwater firearm.[2] It was developed in the late 1960s and accepted for use in 1971. Underwater, ordinary-shaped bullets are inaccurate and very short-range. As a result, this pistol fires a round-based 4.5 millimetres (0.18 in) caliber steel dart about 115 millimetres (4.5 in) long, weighing 12.8 grams (0.45 oz), which has longer range and more penetrating power than speargun spears. The complete cartridge is 145 millimetres (5.7 in) long and weighs 17.5 grams (0.62 oz).[6]
The SPP-1 has four barrels, each containing one cartridge. Its ammunition comes as a clip of four cartridges which is inserted into the pistol's breech.[5]
Its barrel is not rifled; the fired projectile is kept in line by hydrodynamic effects. As a result, it is somewhat inaccurate when fired out of water.[1]

The 2 mm Kolibri (also known as the 2.7 mm Kolibri Car Pistol or 2.7×9 mm Kolibri) is the smallest commercially available centerfire cartridge,[2] patented in 1910 and introduced in 1914 by Franz Pfannl, an Austrian watchmaker, with financial support from Georg Grabner. It was designed to accompany the Kolibri semi-auto pistol or single shot pistol, both marketed as a self-defense weapon.

[edit] Background

The cartridge weighed 5.3 grams (82 grains), measured 3 millimeters (0.12 in) at its widest point, and 11 mm (0.43 in) from the base of the primer to the tip of the bullet. The cartridge headspaced on the mouth of the case. The bullet itself weighed 0.2 g (3 grains), and was estimated to have a normal muzzle velocity of 200 m/s (650 fps), resulting in a muzzle energy 4.0 joules (3 foot-pounds).[3]

The round was not accepted overly well. The 2 mm Kolibri's small size made handling and loading individual cartridges difficult, and the bullet itself was fairly weak, literature at the time suggesting the round was capable of penetrating only 10–40 mm (0.4 to 1.6 inches) of pine board. The round also suffered some accuracy issues, since the technology of the time was incapable of applying rifling to the bore of such a small caliber, resulting in no spin on the bullet.[3]

The series, and most weapons by Franz Pfannl, were discontinued in 1938.

The cartridge (and related firearm series) is now a collector's item, with individual rounds going for over US$70. Original guns for this round can sell for US$5,000.[

Hailing from way back in the Musketeer days of the 1580s, these were hand-held weapons capable of delivering explosive ordinance that could have remained relevant all the way through World War I. Each measures 14" in length, with a 6 1/2" barrel capable of firing 2"-calibre grenades. For a soldier on foot, this was an immense amount of firepower to carry around, if only for one shot.

Country: Italy
Overall Length: 9.5 in
Barrel Length: 6.1 in
Weight: 39.5 oz
Caliber: 9 mm
Rifling: 6 grooves, RH twist
Capacity: 20 rounds
Muzzle Velocity: 1,230 ft/sec
The Beretta Model 93R is a selective-fire machine pistol based on its popular semi-auto sibling, the Beretta Model 92. It was requested by the Security Commission of Italy during the 70's as a weapon built to fight against the increase of world terrorism at that time. The 'R' stands for 'Raffica' which means burst in Italian.
A selector switch on the left-rear side of the slide allows automatic fire at about 1100 rounds per minute in three-round bursts for each pull of the trigger, or standard single-fire.
Unlike the Beretta 92, the trigger action of the 93R is only single-action. This is because the double-action mechanism on the 92 design had to be removed to accommodate the automatic burst mechanism.
There is a fold down grip in front of the trigger guard and an extendable steel shoulder stock which can be attached to the rear of the butt. The basic design is that of the Beretta Model 92 but with a reinforced slide and extended barrel with a muzzle brake. The 20-round magazine extends some distance below the bottom of the butt.
