It's the triple barreled thing they gave to the cosmonauts for survival after they land somewhere in Siberia... It fires pistol ammo - shotgun and flares - the stock it also a machete and there is probably fishing kit and other goodies stashed somewhere on it.
It is intended as a survival aid to be used after landings and before recovery in the Siberian wilderness. The upper two smoothbore barrels use 12.5 mm caliber ammunition, and the lower rifled barrel use 5.45 mm caliber ammunition. The pistol can be used for hunting, to defend against predators and for visual and auditory distress signals. The detachable buttstock is also a machete sheath.
'Marginally more effective"???

I'm still aghast. You are very confident and you are probably a better shot than I am, but a .22 is marginally more effective than a BB gun or Airsoft round. Tell you what. I'm going to pose this question on a gun forum I frequent and we'll see what kind of responses we get. I'll post in a day or so.
