GUN OF THE DAY - Haight Fist Gun Prototype Pistol. It was intended to be a covert/personal protection item for the individual who didn't have the capability to carry a rifle or pistol in the normal manner. While used by Seabee construction operators during the island-hopping campaign in the Pacific, most recently the Haight Fist Gun turned up in Quentin Tarentino's 2009 film, Inglourious Basterds. Hollywood's twist reflects Haight's patenting this "hand gun" in 1944 with U.S. Navy Intelligence and its potential use as an assassination device. Our GOTD is a rare .45 caliber initial version as most were .38 caliber.
