This was an actual army item. My “Thanksgiving” co-writer Jeff Rendell’s father Ken Rendell has a WWII museum in Mass. and had one of these. It’s a one-shot glove-gun. I believe only about 200 of them were made. Jeff found it at his father’s museum and showed it to Quentin who loved it and wrote this scene into the script.
This image is a composite of 2 pictures. the picture of the sky and clouds was taken by me from an airplaine, and the shuttle is a picture from NASA. Then the assembly was done in Photoshop & Ligthroom
