The Model 97 and Model 12 Trench Gun,
During World War I the German government protested vehemently against a new weapon carried into battle by American doughboys. It was a weapon so terrible that the Germans considered it an act of outright barbarism. While they themselves had no qualms with using poison gas, they appealed to international law to have the weapon banned from the battlefield. This weapon was the pump action shotgun.
During World War I the US military purchased tens of thousands of pump action shotguns in special models called trench guns. They were common popular civilian models of the day (The most common was the Winchester Model 1897 and 1912, some other models were also used) only with special modifications. The barrel was produced in a shortened 20 inch model to make it easier to wield in tight spaces. A perforated heat shield was also added to the barrel as well as a bayonet attachment for an M1917 Bayonet.
In the trenches of World War I the trench gun was especially deadly. It was easy to wield in the tight spaces of a trench, especially when the enemy was primarily armed with a long bolt action rifle. When loaded with buckshot the trench gun provided incredibly deadly stopping power at close ranges. One of the most favored features of the trench gun was its lack of a trigger disconnect, allowing the user to slam fire the shotgun. This mean’t that if the user held down the trigger, he would only have to work the pump to fire it. This method allowed the user to dish out fast and deadly firepower at short ranges.
The trench gun would be a valuable tool in close quarter fighting during World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. During World War I the Model 1897 Winchester was the most common model, whereas by World War II the military preferred to use the newer hammerless Winchester Model 1912, which was mostly used in the dense jungles and small islands of the Pacific. Even during the Vietnam War old stocks of M97 and M12 Trench guns were dusted off and pressed into service as a close combat weapon.

Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?
When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)
When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time
