    Where are you getting your information or are you just trolling to get a rise out of people? If you're going to make such accusations give a source where it came from.

    One of my uncles was a "Car Knocker", he checked cars to see if they were empty. A "Hostler" refuels the engines.

    do not shoot it, either keep it as a collectible gun or sell it as such and find yourself a shooter. This early 2nd generation with this box in pristine condition should be preserved.
