As a wise man once said: I can dig it.

I fully understand the power of the older nail technology.
My first truck (which your Dad & I travelled the West Desert in once or twice) was a former forest service 1971 three-quarter-ton Dodge.

I had it for 17 years, the last several of which with a bent nail holding the gear shift lever in place on the steering column.

You do what you can with what you got.

From the FWIW department: A true gallery gun was used in a shooting gallery. Travelling carnivals often had them on the midway. I rented a room above one in downtown Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1953.

SFAIK, the most common rifle was the Winchester 62 in .22 Short.
