Shaun's grandfather was a pilot who flew the F4U-1A Corsairs. Based in San Fransisco for some time then went to Campbelltown in Scotland then the story gets a little foggy. He bought two of theses guns back from WWII. The guns came back via England and this is where we believe the hole was drilled in the barrel of the 9.3mm rifle.
He sold both of them to help with the running costs of a big station up North. A few years later he heard of one of the guns being up for sale and bought it.
Since then it has been used by Shaun's grandmother at duck shooting for years, as the shot gun part still works. From what I hear she was a pretty good shot.
