People with guns collection # 19 - Originally posted Sunday, October 25, 2009

From my own personal collection!"DETROIT, DEC .28 -- GUN THAT SHOOTS AROUND CORNERS -- Sergt. Donald D. Hector, of Muskegon, Mich., demonstrates how a newly developed barrel makes it possible to shoot around corners with a standard sub machine gun. The barrel, which fits on the Army's standard M-3 'grease gun', was developed at the Detroit Arsenal for use by tank crews and infantrymen. It fires a standard 45 caliber bullet at the rate of 450 rounds a minute." 12-28-1951

Somehow, I'm thinking this idea just didn't work out...
