Unique superimposed load ratchet fire pistol, early to mid 19th century.

From Rock Island Auctions:

Made by an unknown smith, this pistol started life as a single shot underhammer target pistol before being changed to it’s present configuration.  The original working guts of the pistol have been stripped, and a novel single trigger, mutli-hammer arrangement has been installed in its place.  A series of 4 percussion nipples have been installed on the upper left flat, each with a single hammer that is lifted and dropped in sequence, muzzle to breech, by a ratchet driven camshaft, which is moved by the spring loaded double action trigger.  In operation, four charges of powder and ball would be loaded, one atop another, and then (hopefully) fired one at a time.”

Estimated Value: $5,000 - $7,500

NooooOOooOooooOoo.

Taking a stroll through my old-ass LJ is never a good thing.

Speaking of things—THIS was a thing. Back in my clouting days.

Now I’m all lazy and reblog everything, and have a kid. Oh, back in the day, when we had to make our own icons and content and I screencapped and fandomed and porned, and was a kid. And it was great. And also not. And oh, the glory days.

The fucking GLORY days.

I’m so OLD now.

And a lot less verbal vomitty (yup).

And not very inclusive into my personal goings-ons. (that is if you compare this to that, it’s night and day—i never shut up)

Ya win some, ya lose some.

But I’m still here.

Kind of.

Baby’s crying.

Oop.

Can I bellow “CUMMING” the same way I bellow “SWINTON”?

I remain skeptical.

yes, yes you can.

Also gentlemen, take note: this is how you age spectacularly.

I view him and SWINTON as the benevolent, saucy, ambiguous godparents we ALL need.
