I thought some sort of warning device too, but why the long barrel then? Another gentleman at another forum suggested a type of vehicle mounted flare gun, which would fit the smoothbore, but again why the barrel length? And as 4INCHSMITH said, weren't most "warning" devices like this single shot?

Plus the lack of military markings on it throws me...if it were a ship's "sounding" pistol, or vehicle mounted flare gun, or something, you'd think you'd find a military stamp on it somewhere.

Thanks for all the brainstorming folks, it's all helpful, really.
