How deep are the 1/2" dia. holes? Sometimes folks have drilled butts with holes to hold matches for survival, or to hold a couple of spare cartridges. Non-arsenal, non-military to be sure, but Bubba has had lots of time to work his mischief on trapdoors. And, once they were "cheap old guns" not revered collector items.
