BLACK JACK

So today's is something that I found a thrift store and probably won't ever again.
If you read a lot of vintage crime stories you've read about the guy pulling out a "Black Jack" and knocking the other guy unconscious. Well this is a black jack!

The police use to carry these before stun guns. It's basically a piece of leather with lead shot in it. You swing it at a guys head and knock him out.

This one is an old one, so I'm not sure the leather could stand a full on swing, but it's a cool item either way.

I wouldn't suggest you carry one of these, but thought you guys might like to see what a real vintage one looks like....
