Lazy boy?

I saw this advertised as “lazy boy” at an antique store. Is it?

Unlike any I’ve ever seen.

What’s that big guy to the right of the German 20x138B Solothurn? 25mm French AA? Kinda looks like it.

I think you are right. Those were not for sale. The shop owner is an ex Marine and keeps some things on display. I did buy one thing at that shop. A bumper sticker saying “My daughter is in United States Air Force”.

OH OH , your daughter in the Navy is going to be hurt. You better get a Navy one on the way back or you will be in BIG trouble, unless you all ready have one.

Nothing about ammo here better quit this line but Thanks for their service.

Pete, naah, it is a 20x138B Rheinmetall! :-)

The original object in the photo looks more akin to a caltrop, used to debilitate and prevent horses from going through an area.

That or a filler for a giant steel tumbler for industry?

That could be too, this one doesn’t look sharp enough.

Looks like he is confusing a caltrop as a lazy dog, and as mentioned is most likely neither.

This is how they look after excessive use, i.e. this one is worn out.

Thanks I need to make that correction in the latest catalog & in my books too.

Pete, this is my assumption only!
