    It is neat, when I saw it at the auction it was mixed with all manner of random old guns. every guy who went past the table picked it up and started playing with it. I had no cell service. But I was confident it was good to go. bidding opened. and ended with one bid, I was shocked. it was a very good day. its a great piece and it menacing as hell to boot. if someone is becoming involved in shenanigans, they see the business end they would probably leave post haste.
    once I got it home. its amazing great engineering, quality functionality its awesome.

    I'd look for an international ship supply Co , as I believe some European Nations still use these large caliber flares . Also with the increase in the collecting of Flare Pistols , I'm sure there'd be a site somewhere devoted to the hobby . Good Luck .
