I do believe we are quite over due for some firearms wackiness ....

Bonkers .50-cal revolver/AOW Russian RSh-12 in 12.7×55㎜. Alas, cannot/should not be.

Saw this whilst searching on metallic silhouette pistols. Um, yah.

Hard to imagine why this contraption didn't catch on. ;)

So wrong on so many levels ... and, yet, can't look away.

Yes, this is a real box of ammo. For some reason Spanish-made .35 Remington is, at least the boxes I've seen, labeled 35㎜. Sounds more like an anti-tank round than a hunting cartridge.

Custom big game rifle built on a McMillan .50 BMG action and chambered in the .700 Rimless (aka .700 BMG as the parent case is the martial .50-cal). The performance is similar to .700 Nitro Express. The cartridge hurls a 1,000-grain slug.

Pretty neato and how bad can shoulder dislocation be? :p
 
Don't have any pictures but a an olde deer-hunting buddy (60s) had a turn of that century rifle that was a T-bolt. Just pulled it straight back. Anybody sen one of these?

Anyone for a snub-nose 40㎜ grenade launcher? Cut-down M-79 captured by US Marines near Dong Ha Combat Base in 1968.

The SPL40. Which is a Vietnamese reverse engineering of the American M-79 grenade launcher and fires the same cartridge.

Dunno about a "T", however there are a bunch of straight pull bolt actions:


I have a Swiss K31. Haven't shot it much, however the action is smooth "like butter".

Edit, adding: Suppose you could call a K31 bolt handle a T.

Those are literally known as a "Straight-Pull" action rifles.
Mannlicher's, Schmidt-Rubin's, Lee Navy's, these were all Straight pull rifles produced at the turn of the 20th century.
If your buddy's gun shot the .303 British round, it was probably the Ross Rifle, which was the Canadian infantryman's rifle from the turn of the century until the second world war, although production had ceased shortly after the end of the first world war.
I believe all of these guns (or at least, versions thereof) would've had a "T" style bolt handle.
