Fireplace Gun

Not a great photo but many pubs and hotels in the UK have old historic weapons like this as decoration. This is a field rifle from the 18th century if I remember right, the front would have been supported by a stand, and would require two men to fire it. Useful against armoured knights to dismount them – knights were easy targets when off their horses.
