Thanks Edge,
But no thanks.
After all it was you who referred to the dreaded Mr. Hyde; I was merely mentioning the name of the good Doctor.

Zmija passed the torch to you, remember,
So as per rules please do continue the quiz with your question.

Grrr... :x Everybody is a hunter, nobody wants to put his mass on grass! :?

OK, there is another "killer" question: during the 1930s a student tried to shoot one of most famous people on the world. He carried the pistol on photo bellow.
Do you know
1) Who? (shooter)
2) Who? (target)
3) What? (pistol)
(where? why? - optional questions for bonus points)

I'll stick to an easy question 8-)

A very special handgun now on display at a US military Academy museum was owned by who.
I'll even give you all some extra help. An English 1970s agent/spy movie featured "similar" weapon :lol:

This one? (because you said it's "easy" question)
http://www.williammaloney.com/Aviation/ ... Pistol.htm


About the movie, I read a very good novel of Alistair MacLean http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/m/ali ... is-key.htm , featuring "Liliput" in 4.25mm caliber, filmed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1972 (however, not a "spy", more "criminal" plot)

Aw God - did Hitler have one of those too???
featuring "Liliput" in 4.25mm
But Liliput ''the Golden gun'' is said to be a .32. Now THAT is truly sensational :lol:

So, only "similarity" was their "golden" exterior. :? (Didn't got this hint :( )

Hope that gun in USA is better secured that a movie one: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstop ... udios.html

Next question: who designed this ugly peace of... furniture.

Thanks Edge,

New subject: What was the German designation of this machine gun?

Not the first time used in this quiz but thought this exp. eBay shot of the weapon under new management worthy of some cyberspace here.
