About

The tag line of this blog "Si vis pacem, para bellum!" - Latin for "If you wish for peace, prepare for war!" pretty much says it all. Gun rights is currently a much maligned & ignored civil rights issue in India. This blog, in conjuntion with the www.indiansforguns.com forum is our attempt to raise awareness on this very important issue.

13 October 06 - 09:30Pistol found in unclaimed bank locker

A pistol gifted by a Raja to a British officer in 1920s found in an unclaimed locker of State Bank of India.

The Times of India reports that an antique (sic) pistol supposedly gifted to Lt A B Greenwood, sometime in the 1920s by an unknown Raja was found (along with 261 rounds of ammo) in an unclaimed locker of the State Bank of India's head office at Fort, Mumbai.

An interesting aside - as per receipts found with the pistol, the (highly engraved) custom made gun is supposed to have cost Rs. 300 at the time while the ammunition recovered is supposed to have cost Rs. 200. By the same measure, 261 rounds of .32 cal IOF (KF brand) ammo would cost less than Rs. 9,000 today... of course these days, there is little chance of purchasing any kind of pistol for a proportionate amount of around Rs. 13-14,000!! :-p
