I bet that was a book from a reletive that passed away and the person that donated it had NO idea what was in it. Just saw some old book and had no interest in it.

I agree.


Cool story. It is just a shame that a cool old pistol will, I assume, most likely be destroyed.

That may not be the case though.... if it is old enough it may be put into an exhibit perhaps. Donated to some Museum or something.... one could hope I suppose

Personally, I think it should put into a case along with the book and displayed in the library.

Agree. I would rather see that than have it destroyed.

This is the way that many people tried to smuggle guns back in the day. they would make them out of wood and it took alot of time and craftsmenship . There are no pages in them and they wood put it in trunks. When you traveled back then there were not suitcases ..G19
