I can't seem to figure it out. This is what I tried:

function pickupobject_quest1_init(e)

end

function pickupobject_quest1_main(e)

local PlayerDist = GetPlayerDistance(e)

if PlayerDist < 100 and g_PlayerHealth > 0 then
Prompt("Press E to pick up hammer")
if g_KeyPressE == 1 then
Spawn(g_Entity[e]['Pistol'] == 1)
PerformLogicConnections(e)
Destroy('Quest1Trigger')
ActivateIfUsed('Pistol')
Show('Pistol')
Destroy(e)
end
end
end

In short
Spawn(e)
Destroy(e)
Hide(e)
Show(e)

In other words, you work with "e" or the entity ID, not the entity name, so if the hammer ID is equal to 4, so
Spawn(4)
Destroy(4)
Hide(4)
Show(4)

If you want to hide let's say 8 hammers at a time and their IDs are correlative (1 thru 8) you can make as follow:

for i = 1,8,1 do Hide(i) end
