Hey everybody! I decided to stop being dead for the first time in who knows how long.

Nothing special here, just a simple warm-up project to see if my hands still remember what they're supposed to do.

It's a basic 4-barrel break-action shotgun/pistol/thing, I might post full instructions if people like it.

Each barrel is fired independently of the rest, but the top barrel on a side has to fire before the bottom barrel can.

The thick vertical red and blue bands are necessary, the red prevents the barrel distorting enough to allow the top barrels to fire from shock (side effect of the long double-trigger pull), the blue bends the chamber in enough to serve as a rudimentary bullet-lock.

Handle is comfortable, but might be awkward for smaller hands, especially with the long trigger pull(s).

Stats are mediocre, 30-40 feet with a yellow rod with 2 #64's, accuracy is fine for the varying barrel axes.

Sorry for the low-quality pictures, my phone's camera isn't too great.
