My 1856 Raymond & Robitell, Petingill Patent

Bought that one new, didja?  ;)


Quote
is a hammerless percussion and was advertized as such. Iver Johnson  and several manufaturers of cheaper guns from about 1880 on made them and called themhammerless.  When I was in the business in the 60' we we're still selling those nickel plated pieces of crap and calling them hammerless.
So....Excuse Me!

I know they've been called hammerless, even sometimes in the model name. But they aren't; they've got a hammer. You just can't cock it manually.

Kevin

Edit to add: here's a picture showing the hammer of your Raymond & Robitaille "hammerless":

Thanks Kevin.  I haven't seen the inside of it in a long time.  You don't have to be an engineer to appreciate how advanced that mechanism was in a world full of single action firearms.  It was part of a collection a friend's grandfather was assembling during the early 1900's  that showed, the progression of 'automation' in handguns.  Long broken up the collection  included a pepperbox and a French pinfire revolver.  Do you have images of every gun ever made ;D

Ooo... pretty pistols.

Y'know... I really would like to get into guns and self-defense.  I'm a liability to myself otherwise.  :X

I wonder if they have anything on the brake open single shot .22 with the laminated barrell and the door bolt style release that my father got for selling Salve. The name escapes me.

LOL Cathleen, good thing you weren't married to MY husband!
Here's a little gun humor to make you laugh, from his friend (and mine) who is a gun dealer:

Scenario:  Jack pulls into school parking lot with rifle in gun rack.
1956 - Vice Principal comes over, takes a look at Jack's rifle, goes to his car and gets his to show Jack.
2006 - School goes into lock-down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail >and never sees his truck or gun again.  Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

The pink Cricketts are in high demand every Christmas. Gotta start a girl off right!

John David (who turned 4 in November) just got his first rifle, a black Crickett. I made him learn and recite an age-appropriate variation of the Four Rules. Now, he starts conversations with strangers in Wal Mart by telling them, "Never point at people or pets. Always keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot. Guns can be very dangerous."  ;D

Operative word being "little". They have a 16-1/8" barrel, and 30" overall length. They're really sized for kids aged 5-10.

But I gotta admit, I got a kick out of testing it.  ;D

LawDog agrees.

Thank you thank you!  I think the first thing i need to do, is try some out before I go jumping into a purchase.  Because I am going to be here in the little state of RI for the next 6 months, I am going to purchase in this state.  I hope I can find a woman's shooting club or something like that here in RI, but I have the feeling I wont, people dont seems to appreciate a good gun around these parts!

I'm only familiar with the more northern areas of RI, but I'm sure there are a lot of gun enthusiasts in the rural areas of the state.  My brother lives in Coventry and has seen a lot of deer hunters in the area. 

The folks at Manville might have information about other clubs if you live south of Providence.

http://manvillesportsmensrodandgunclub.org/

If you do live up near the MA border there's an indoor range in North Attleboro, MA.  They have quite a schedule of courses available and should also have a good selection of pistols for you to try.  They should also be able to point you to places to purchase in RI and might even have an arrangement with a RI based store to handle the paperwork since you can't buy a handgun out of state without transfering through a dealer in your state.

http://www.americanfirearmsschool.com/

I'm not aware of any woman's shooting groups in RI, but the Pink Pistols might be able to point you to a woman's group.  (They are a gay gun rights organization but are open to people of all sexual orientations).

A reliable gun that is used by cops is the Sig P229.  They can be had in many different looks.  If you want it bigger, go with a 226, and if you want it smaller, go with a 239.  They are available in 9mm, .40 S&W, & .357 Sig

I have a KelTec P3AT (.380) that's black, but they also make a .32 that's available in other colors.

I am a NRA certified pistol instructor, but would prefer to work with several other instructors teaching a class.

Nice, I like it!  I also like a .38 special snubnose (Taurus), it has a good kick though!  I need to go for shooting lessons I have a red laser beam and still can't hit the freakin target!  ::)

I know this is about guns but.....my cousin let me try to use his cross-bow when I was 15 and I couldn't even pull it back to shoot an arrow. I love skeet shooting, it's alot of fun. :)
