February 25th Pistol Patent Day

Samuel Colt invented the revolver in 1835 and received the US patent, #138, 1836. It has become an important weapon in the world’s arsenal but also a controversial one as well. The first controversial part is that Colt invented a revolver, not a pistol. I revolver has a cylinder that turns bringing the ammunition into play, a pistol is generally fed automatically from a different type of source. So we should really be celebrating Revolver Patent Day but then… who cares.

How to celebrate – Learn the difference in a pistol and a revolver. Go practice shooting at a range. Remember to keep all weapons locked up.
