On this day in 1836 Inventor Samuel Colt patented his revolver and did more for good manners than anyone since the man who invented the table napkin.
And what a wonderful invention it was, too!
I think the picture of the Colt revolver should have been of the revolver that Sam Colt actually invented, the Colt Patterson .36 cap and ball.
Lol- thanks, Anonymous! It would have been the picture of the one he actually invented if I had a clue. While I may not be a gun enthusiast (though I do enjoy shooting them), I am a 2nd Amendment enthusiast.
