Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.bbtv.com/collections/forgotten-weapons
Several years ago, my friend Joe Lozen had an opportunity to fire an original Hotchkiss Revolving Cannon. He kindly sent me this clip – it is the only footage of one of these actually firing live ammunition (note the recoil) that I am aware of. Thanks, Joe!
You can also see some video of US military drill and blank firing from the Fields of Thunder Museum here: https://youtu.be/XDPvKfxfvf0?t=455
These cannons have a cluster of 5 barrels that rotate, chambered for 37mm (1.5″) shells. For more information on the design and history, see my full video:

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
