Re: Ducks Foot Pistol
Getting into this one late, but a couple of thoughts.
I learned, back in high school, that it was Eli Whitney that dreamed up standardization and mass production of firearms parts. Might be wrong, but that's what they taught me.
While that 10-shot dual hammer gun is cool, it ain't a pepperbox. Pepperboxes were named that because they resembled a pepper grinder.
Ruger's making of Single Actions is not a testament to Sam Colt's genius. It is a testament to the thousands of fools (and I'm one of them) that enjoy playing with this type gun. I say "fools" and I say "playing", because, for a working gun, you do not want a single action revolver that you have to load one round at a time. If it was not for the invention of Cowboy Action Shooting, Ruger would never had made the Vaquero.
