Now that might sound cheap by today’s prices but at that time one could purchase a deluxe Chevrolet automobile under $600. Needless to say, only well financed gangs — and police agencies — could afford “Tommy Guns” while the rest got by with revolvers, some semi-auto pistols, shotguns and carbines. The latter pair which are the subjects of this report. The shotgun has long been…
