50drabbles. table 11. 16. Six Shooter - Double-action  
21:34:00, June 24th, 2008
John Henry Holliday, DDS
John favours innovation. His uncle John had been frustrated when the medical profession disregarded it. John's first pistol was a Navy Colt. But when he came upon the tiny 1865 Webley ring-trigger, he was sold on the idea of self-cockers. They can be fired with an elegant pull of one finger, without the awkward instant-consuming drawing back of the hammer. He keeps it in his waistcoat.

Since Colt brought out their double-action Lightning and Thunderer he has worn one on his belt, one in a spring-loaded shoulder harness. Nickel-plated. They are neither popular nor reliable, but John swears by them.

Years: from 1877
