Just got back from Chincoteague, VA. Did lots while there, including touring the little Chincoteague museum. In the display they had about old market hunting days they had an old punt gun out. must have been 8 feet long, BUT part of the barrel had been reinforced with a section of iron pipe used like a sleeve over the barrel. The threads were still clearly visible. Some of the decoys were fantastic. Apparently one of their really famous decoy carver was in the movie "Misty" His shop is set up next to the museum. Only power tool was a old old bandsaw.
