A neat little gun which loads 3 rounds of elastic shots.


“I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down”


DIA70xL280mm, Thailand

This is a powder horn, a container for carrying gunpowder.  It is made with a a buffalo horn with a nonferrous metal for the base and the spout.  Powder horns were very common at a time when muzzle loading guns are used, people would store their black powder for ammunition reloads.  As the gun making technology advanced with the same ignition process, the need for carrying the powder horn diminished.
