Preston,
The way that gun was mounted reminds me of my last ship when I was in the Navy. I was the Combat Systems Officer (CSO) on USS Texas (CGN 39) and when the ship was commissioned, Ross Perot donated a couple of pearl handled revolvers. They were under glass in the wardroom. A brass plaque under the case read, "In case of missile failure, break glass." I always thought that was very cool and really a source of conversation when visitors came aboard.
