    The photo looks staged, shoes [not boots] empty, etc. Barrel wouldn't peel open like that - I think. Provenance of happening vague. Warning to be careful and safe. Urban legend...?

    Matching age, condition, grain, wood, etc would be difficult. However, if you want to shoot it, use a loose boot over the butt to lengthen the butt. Easy on and off and doesn't change anything,...
