The "S" prefix to the serial number was used from 1925 to 1932. The 12,000 range serial number will put it in the later stages of that range. Somewhere around late 1931 to early 1932.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

If the world was wouldn't be.
