Frank Gompert sits, off-center to the right, and hunches over a small table and microscope. He leans towards the left as he holds a pistol beneath the microscope. Below him and on the table sits a pile of bullets and casings, on or near their evidence sleeves. Behind and to the left of Frank Gompert, Norris Stensland sits and watches Frank Gompert handle the small firearm. At left, a typewriter and another pistol sit on the desk next to Norris Stensland. The rest of the laboratory occupies the background.
