A man in Poland has built the world's largest working revolver, according to Guinness World Record. The weapon, a Remington model 1859, was built by Ryszard Tobys, of Piotrowo Drugie, west-central Poland. It took Mr Tobys around 2,500 hours to construct, since most of the parts had to be built by hand.

Match it up with this puppy. It's an actual shotgun, they called it a Punt Gun. The claim was it could drop 50 ducks with 1 shot.
All I can think of is my shoulder after a day in the field with that thing..

That's not a shotgun, it's a prototype Howitzer!

I don't understand what they want to prove building bigger guns? They can't be concealed and it is totally impractical to develop something this big which you cannot even hold.

Did you notice on the barrel it said "blackpowder 22g"? That's not even near the minimum for most blackpowder rifles, which the barrel length certainly makes it. If you're going to build the world's largest revolver, at least make it strong enough to handle proportionately sized powder charges.

You're obviously confused. That's 22 grams (being Poland and all) which is give or take 340 grains.
