…. With This Silenced Pistol…


"An M1908 Webley pistol sporting an M1929 Parker Hale silencer is part of the British National Army Museum's firearms collection. The museum's catalogue entry on the pistol states that it was used by the British Special Operations Executive during World War II.

Given that it's an SOE weapon, shoot Nazis with it. Very quietly, so as to not let their friends know. And then never tell anyone.

Crack open Walnuts. The Silencer give you better leverage.

Knocking off sentries and collaborators I would have thought……quietly.
