A New Pistol!

Just acquired this pistol. Sadly ammo for it is scarce. A pre WWI pistol and the action is smooth as butter and not in bad shape to boot!


















Back in the day ammo for this pistol could be found in any drug, toy, or department store. I took one to elementary school along with my friends. Hell, I actually took a REAL Revolver to school for a prop in the Senior play. Sadly, it appears that you cannot even draw a firearm on paper in school anymore. 

Anyone know where I can get some ammo? This thing even has sights on it!

  2. If it takes the 100 shot rolls, Wally World has them:

    If it needs the smaller 50 shot rolls:

  5. At least 15 years ago a local, old time, hardware store was getting ready to move locations. I thought it was a mistake, it had been on the same street corner since the building had stopped being a stable, but the owner was a friend and he was having a moving sale.

    One of things I bought was a gross of roll caps in 5 roll boxes. That's 144x5x100 shots. They were the old ones, with a big dot of material in each one and they went off with a loud snap. They had been in the back room for decades.

    I had to go buy some old cap guns and teach the kids how to play with them. We hit them with hammers, used bright sun and a magnifying glass, and slowly they dwindled away. I should have saved a few boxes, they would be collectors items now.

  7. I'm wondering if you could make cap ammo without blowing up the garage or having ATF show up at your next barbecue?

    1. B., I'm thinking BATFEIEIO would show up here regardless! BBQ? Sounds great! I CAN'T blow up the garage. I need a detached one for fun stuff. Working on that!
