A cowboy's dream

a unique gun - Henry Josselyn's 20 shot revolver.
scanned from an old Am Heritage.

A 20 shot revolver. I found Henry Josselyn's patent online issued Jan 1866.

Surprisingly, the patent doesn't mention that, once you ran out of ammo, you could swing it at someone like a chain.

There might be some issues fitting it in a holster.

It turns out not to be the only high capacity revolver. See here and here.

Looks like a chastity belt! 1.6

Wow. That's actually pretty cool for a failed, impractical invention. I think I'll stick to my three wheel guns, however.

It took steps like this to come up with the fun guns we have these days.

Good on the guys who came up with this stuff!
