All, I recently acquired a wooden Federal Laboratories tear gas cartridge box, and thought I'd share it in the forum. What's really interesting about this item is it still has the original Railway Express shipping label stapled to it. The box went to the Iowa County, Wisconsin Sheriff's Department in Dodgeville, WI, addressed to Sheriff C.J. Holman. I was not able to find his years of service online, so I made an inquiry to the Iowa County Historical Society, and they replied back to me yesterday. Apparently Sheriff Clarence J. Holman served as Sheriff for two terms from 1933-36, and 1941-44. So, I've been able to determine an 11-year range of dates that this item would have been delivered. The box is fairly small. When I received it, at first I thought it might have contained 12-gauge shells for a Manville tear gas gun. Now I think maybe it contained four 1.5" tear gas cartridges, but I could be wrong. Here are some photos: Your input is appreciated. Thanks! David Albert email@example.com
All, Tracie HIll forwarded me some images of a Webley Gas Gun in his collection, which was available from Federal Laboratories in the late 1920's. Somewhere in my paper collection, I have an original ad for these. I didn't realize these were made by Webley, and I also didn't realize they were marked "Federal Laboratories Pittsburgh Penna" until I saw these photos. Now I want one. I welcome any input you may have on this tear gas gun. Here are the photos: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/dalbert/MGBoards/TearGas/WebleyFedLabs-1.JPG http://www.sturmgewehr.com/dalbert/MGBoards/TearGas/WebleyFedLabs-2.JPG http://www.sturmgewehr.com/dalbert/MGBoards/TearGas/WebleyFedLabs-3.JPG I think this is the same type of gas gun that was in a box with several others that Barry found on "Storage Wars." His had a prison ID tag on it. I'd be interested in seeing photos of that one, if anyone knows where it ended up after the show. David Albert firstname.lastname@example.org
