Another Dangerous Gun Off the Streets!
« on: October 13, 2021, 05:18:56 PM »

Off the streets of England, but still, always amusing when some commie pinko progressive cop shop or DA somewhere is all proud of getting a likely non-functional antique "off the streets".  :rofl:

It didn't look functional to me. I don't think it even had a trigger.

It could likely be loaded and touched off with a match/lighter/glowing cigarette or cigar/ or some such.

Flintlock converted to matchlock.  All the lads in the 'hood do it.  Completely safe and can't be traced that way

Except this one is a handgun. Same principle, though!
