Our Assessment: This boot pistol was made without sights and rifling in the barrel as it was supposed to be a close quarters defensive weapon where accuracy was not required. This looks like the inside of the barrel is almost in better condition than the outside, and we wonder how much it was ever shot, if it was shot at all. It looks like it would be fun to try out with a little Pyrodex just to see how hard it is to hit something with it.
