Berman Museum of World History is proud to partner with
Shotgun Sports Supply Company in presenting
Berman Museum Gun of the Month
This month's featured weapon:
Before the days of J-frames and the Ruger LCP, there were pocket pistols of many different sizes, shapes, and calibers. Having a small concealed weapon added the element of surprise with ones nemesis. The German Liliput semiauto pistol fired a tiny 4.25mm round. In contrast, this early 20th century German D.R.G.M. Scheintod pistol fired a massive single shot round of gas similar to teargas. The late 19th century .22 caliber Baby Hammerless revolver was often carried in a holster resembling a coin purse.
Drop by Shotgun Sports Supply Company at 1414 US Highway 431, Anniston , and marvel at these unique weapons that reflect changing ideas on engineering and technology through the ages.
