They say Samuel Colt made a gun

On this day in 1836, Samuel Colt was issued the first patent for his revolving pistol.

Way to go, Sam!

I have a Colt revolver -- not one of the really old ones; they go for five figures, these days, but an Army Special. It was my first gun, and it's not a bad gun to learn shooting with. I need to get more revolvers. Also, more semi-autos. Also, more rifles -- LOOK I CAN QUIT ANY TIME OKAY.
