Attached is a photo c.1938 of Elkhart County, IN, Sheriff Dept with "my" TSMG #4407. Photo sent to me by the current sheriff there. Of interest is the body shields, body vests, other weapons and what appears to be a box with tear gas canisters and launcher behind the little girl in the center of the picture. 1 1/2 Cal
Federal model 201? Anybody have any thoughts on this? Pretty neat picture.
