The world is filled with a variety of different guns. Although they are generally destructive devices that can cause pain and pose a significant danger, they have become an essential part of civilization because of their widespread use across a large number of industries and services. Police services and armed forces use guns for protection, ensuring that enemies or criminals cannot overcome them, while others utilize the weapons for things such as hunting and target practice.
Regardless though, there are some elements that all of these activities share that require the weapons to be as compact and efficient as possible. This makes the guns far easier to wield, helps aiming to be quicker and reduces the risk of recoil. Overly large devices lose these attributes and so manufacturers will usually endeavor to make their products as powerful as possible, without being unwieldy.
However, there are some people who do not focus on practicality with their weapons but instead, want a gun that is simply huge. Other elements are deemed less important for the sheer impressive size of the device. These owners don’t want a gun that is easy to use, rather they want a truly massive gun that is incredibly powerful. Manufacturers have created several weapons that fit this description, although they are entirely impractical for the vast majority of people.
10 WTS .50 BMG
9 Denel NTW-20
8 Elephant Guns
7 Davy Crockett
6 .577 Tyrannosaur
5 Heckler & Koch GMG
4 .600 Nitro Express Revolver
3 .905 Rifles
2 Custom Remington Model 1859
1 Punt Gun
The Punt Gun was a type of weapon used in the 19th and 20th centuries. They usually ranged in size, from 10-feet to 15-feet, and were mounted on small boats called punts as their recoil and size made them impractical to use as a normal gun. Essentially, they were giant shotguns capable of firing more shots than many other weapons combined. This extravagantly large gun was not used to fight armored vehicles or attack large targets that were very far away; instead, it was used almost exclusively for shooting ducks. One shot of the weapon was capable of killing 50 waterfowl, making it ideal for those who wanted to hunt the animals to sell, as it saved a great deal of time.
