A short, wide-barreled musket. In the original Dutch it was donderbus, 'thunder-box', but the name was altered owing to its tendency to explode in peoples' faces. See also Old-Timey, Weapons.

One of those rifles with the big, bell-shaped barrel like in cartoons. Apparently you just put the powder in and shove some crap down the barrel and shoot that. Efficient, and a good way to get rid of stuff you couldn't sell at that garage sale.
