https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedgley_OSS_.38 This glove looks like it is telling us to go fuck ourselves. The Sedgley OSS is a single shot, break action, smoothbore .38 Special pistol which was designed by Stanley M. Haight for the Naval Intelligence Office. It was meant as a covert operations and assassination weapon in the Pacific Theater. It was mounted on the back of a cowhide glove; the gun would be usually worn along with a long-sleeved coat to hide the weapon until it was used. Due to its appearance, it was commonly nicknamed "Glove Pistol" or "Glove Gun". The trigger is a bar parallel to and extending past the barrel. After being loaded and cocked, the weapon is fired by the shooter making a fist and pressing the trigger against the target's body. Between 52 and 200 are believed to have been manufactured. Each Sedgley was issued only as one glove and not as a pair. --- I consider myself relatively well informed on military weapons and events, but this one has gone unnoticed until now, sparking the fire that created this thread.
