Its Fun to be the King


This mini Purdey was presented to King George V in 1935. The gun is fully functional. It breaks down into its own guncase and it even has cartridges made by Eley-Knoch that are just under a half-inch long loaded with 1.62 grains of powder and 2.02 grains of dust shot. It is said the King would shoot moths with the gun.

Wonder how it would do on spiders...

I suspect it would only make that big spider they found down in South America really really mad.
