I wonder why No.2 of Hammer Into Anvil, felt the need to smuggle a sword shooting stick into the Village? Surely such a weapon was well outside the pail of the law, as No.2 of The Chimes of Big Ben would put it. You will observe that it is a plain shooting stick that No.2 has, not the regular, yet unusual umbrella shooting stick. Perhaps it was for self preservation, that No.2 felt the need to have the weapon to hand. Having been recruited to the Village, but not knowing what he would have to face after his arrival!
