In some historical instances extraordinary measures have been taken against looters during times of crisis. It’s not uncommon in some countries for looters to be shot, either by police, army, or business owners. Some governments will justify the shooting of looters with the excuse of “preventing further damage to the economy”.

Colt “Junior” Commando Revolver – Over 50,000 Commando’s were sold to the US Military between 1942-45. Only 3,000 were made with 2” barrels and these were called “Junior Commandos”. Most of the revolvers were sent to the Defense Supplies Corporation for use by Military Police and Civilian Plant Guards. Some of the 2” Junior Commandos found their way into the OSS and other clandestine services. It is even said that General Eisenhower carried a 2” Junior Commando.
