No thanks. It might actually work but I'll stick to the shotgun with the barrell sawed off to 1/2 inch longer than the legal minimum. I call it my 'point defence weapon' and it is our downstairs gun. For those times I need firefower while backing up the stairs to my other weapons!
In Oklahoma, even we liberals like guns!
Pilgrims? Nah...go back 200 more years...to 15th Century Spain... IIRC, the natives in New Spain were scared of the Conquisatdores because of a) horses, b) the noise of the blunderbuss, and c) small pox.
IMHO, small pox would be more effective!!!!!

It would seem to have a negative impact on velocity. I would think the propellent gasses would escape around the shot load as the barrel got wider. I picture a loud boom and 9 00 buck shot pellets rolling down the barrel on to the floor.

Won't do squat-all. The blunderbuss had a big mouth for ease of loading, not shot-spread. It will open up your spread, but nothing like they suggest. Think about it- unless you stop the wad, or compress the shot in a different direction (ala, the duck-bill), the effect is no different than you'd get with a 12-14" SBS. Great marketing, though!
Pigeon gun, wipe out the whole flock with one shot.

Foget the house gun....get the "Bed-er-ciser" that they sell. Trun it into a giant slingshot....use any old bowling balls laying around the house. Think of it as a crude mortar...that'll scare those bad guys...he he he.
oops it should be "Bedaciser"...sorry

There is actually an ad for this, uh, shotgun, in the "Spotlight" section of the March/April 07 issue of American Handgunner Magazine, page 117.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
