Top Break pix!

Top Break Revolvers and Suicide Specials: Many were poorly made all were basic, inexpensive, simple guns which sold at modest prices . “Suicide Specials" were the "Saturday Night Specials” of their day and age. Beginning in the late 19th century, a huge number of these were sold through various retail outlets. Examples are Iver Johnson, Harrington & Richardson, and (H & R Firearms)

I've found a few Eibar revolvers with misspelling. It just adds to their charm. :D

They were created before "spell check" existed so I let it slide. ;)

My pair of Harrington & Richardson Large Frame Safety Hammerless in .38 S&W

My Enfield Mk VI in .455 Webley. It was made in 1926 and I still sometimes carry it as a self defense gun.

Sweet deal!
I had a hard time finding 38S&W ammo for a while, and then I discovered Cabelas had some. :)

Every since I saw the movie Zulu I've wanted a .445. I'm jealous.

If they don't trust us with guns, how can we trust them with the government?

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen". Samuel Adams,
