The Duck Foot Pistol. source

The duck foot pistol, which first appeared in the 1700s and 1800s, was named after the shape of its barrels, which looked like the foot of a duck.

This gun could have as few as three barrels and as many as six. Usually, each barrel was aimed in a different direction.

The principle behind this type of pistol is one of confrontation by one person against a group.

For example, the gun was designed for use by people like bank guards, prison wardens, and ship captains who could be attacked by several people coming from different directions.
