You are going a little overboard with dumb questions.
You do not have to go way overboard to prove that you are stupid, you
can simply be your normal self.
Related to your dumb question, there are different trigger locks,
including those that are easy to unlock in case of emergency. Also, if
you have a lot of guns, you only need one to defend yourself, so
keeping others locked up is a simple prudent step to deter theft.
Do you feel you have competition in that area now?
Is this another great saying taught in the russian army?
Oh, I see. If burglars see guns with trigger locks, they just get
frustrated and leave.
Locking gun away in a cabinet seems reasonable if warranted.
Gun locks on the other hand are just stupid, especially trigger locks.
the only thing that belongs in that area is a finger if you're going to
shoot. Not dubious luggage lock nonsense that may or may not even work at
1435 -- This could be a moisture meter for wood. The pronged handpiece
is tapped into the wood with the hammer, and the meter measures moisture
content (presumably based upon the resistance of the wood).
1436 -- A hoist, I'd guess for a wagon, either to remove the wheels for
greasing or for changing various bodies on the chassis. In use, the
rope with the hook would need to be wound the opposite direction for the
ratchet mechanism to keep the load hoisted; I guess it was turned this
way for storage so as to be readily retrieved for use.
1437 -- Old multi-tool with a screwdriver blade, an extractor or
corkscrew of some sort, what appears to be a tap wrench, and an awl. I
suppose you might use this for....okay, I have no idea why this
conglomeration of implements would be used.
1438 -- This may be used to assemble some sort of coaxial RF connector.
1439 -- Shears, utility knife, and screwdriver combination; were it not
for the screwdriver, I'd guess it would find use by florists or other
agrarian persons. With the screwdriver, I suspect instead perhaps some
electronic assembly/repair operation, with the shears for cutting fine
wire or ribbon cable. A stripper seems to be omitted, so perhaps
insulation displacement connectors are to be used.
1440 - a most curious lock; it plainly clamps around or through
something, but it's hard to say what. Purely as a guess, maybe it's
used to lock ropes to render a sailboat secure against sailing or a
flagpole secure against certain practical jokes?

O.K. Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1435) To me, this looks like something designed to measure
moisture content in wood. Drive it in (using the hammer),
take the measurement (using the meter), and then extract the
probes (using the lever in the handle end of the hammer.
I'd like to see more detail of the front panel and the scale of
the meter assembly, but I don't think that it would change my
1436) A big ratchet assembly -- made of wood -- as part of a hoist.
The cable is wound the wrong way around the shaft at the moment,
but it should be fairly easy to unwind before starting use it.
1437) Hmm ... the corkscrew assembly is backwards -- but it probably
is normally stored that way for safety.
At a guess -- it is for pulling plugs from wine barrels or
perhaps beer barrels (and driving them back in). Not sure what
the square socket on the end is for, especially with the
eccentric section above it, which would probably prevent it feom
being removed except in a certain orientation.
1438) Intersting tool. From sometime like the 1960s or later, given
the nice blue anodize job. Most likely the body is aluminum,
but it could be titanium as well.
Purely as a guess -- it might be a tool for dealing with printed
circuit boards and integrated circuits.
Knowing the dimensions of the pins, and perhaps a larger image
of the bent leg tool might help a bit.
1439) Perhaps an unpackaging tool -- with the shears for cutting
strapping tape, and the screwdriver for removing screws securing
a crate around something heavy and easily damaged.
1440) Trigger lock for a firearm -- rifle or handgun.
Now to see what others have said.

1435: OK, you hammer the thing with four prongs into some wiring
(insulated and separated by a raised insulator, perhaps) and you get
a reading. Looks like it's used with moderately high voltages so it's
not telephone. Looks too small for anything railroad related.
Similarly too small for power company use. Maybe neon sign? (And
shouldn't it come with a tube of goo to reseal the holes when you're
1436: Looks like a big grinder, but being made of wood, probably
isn't. Perhaps a stirrer to force something (grain?) through an
1437: Ye Olde Lugge Wrench
1438: Probably not a water pick.
1439: Tin snips, bottle opener, screwdriver, knife... OK, it's yet
another multitool, perhaps for camping.
1440: It could possibly lock a bicycle -- the protrusions would
prevent the wheel from turning, but it wouldn't do much good.
There's no such thing as a free lunch, but certain accounting practices can
result in a fully-depreciated one.
