This single shot pistol was meant to be dropped from the air.
The Liberator Pistol was an interesting idea during World War II. The infamous hickok45 examines and shoots a replica of this famous historical firearm.
Dropped by the allies from the air for friends behind enemy lines, this little pistol could get the job done. Chambered in .45 caliber, it had the knock down needed to subdue a sentry. Then the user could grab a better gun.
