Military History Photo Friday: A Walking Stick Gun
I spotted this interesting weapon in the Medieval Museum in Bologna last month. It dates from the 18th century. As you can see, if combines a flintlock musket with a gentleman's walking stick. The perfect thing for a relaxing stroll!
Italy was a lot of fun. I'm writing a series of articles about it every Wednesday for Black Gate. I've already posted on the medieval towers of Bologna, and the Etruscan treasures in the city's archaeological museum. Another post will follow this coming Wednesday!
