Torts professors frequently become connoisseurs, or at least aficionados, of warning labels. Knowing this, a colleague brought me the warning label in his copy of Walther P-38 Pistol by Major George C. Nonte. The book was published in 1975 by Desert Publications.
The Publisher (Desert Publications) produces this book for informational and entertainment purposes and under no circumstances advises, encourages or approves of use of this material in any manner.
It's sad that the publisher can't even "approve of," never mind "advise" or "encourage," the "use of" the material "in any manner." The informational and entertainment values of certain portions of the book, such as chapter 3 on "Care and Maintenance" or chapter 4 on "Stripping and Servicing," seem limited.
