Interesting story behind this page, as noted, since it was mounted less than ten hours before the first tower went down.

But in updating it with the new patents links unearthed by Dan'l Watters, I note that both the "disposable" cylinder and the plaster of Paris projectiles are the product of one Melvin Zaid of Long Island.

Those two patents are now over 38 years old, but is there anyone here who knew Mr. Zaid? Share, share!

Slight correction, Dean: The SOG graphic does not show a Colt Lawman MK III, but a 2" D-frame, such as a Detective Special. Look at the shape of the trigger guard.

Is this the same guy?
Yes.

The Salvo Squeezebore concept was Russell S. Robinson's baby. He was an interesting character. One of his WW2 era inventions was a compact, low recoil .50 cal. machinegun. To prove its controllability, he rigged up a demonstration model that could be fired off the shoulder while standing.
