    my favorite: a lens on a sundial that fires a cannon at noon to let the village know it's "tiempo por la siesta."

    Some strange pistolas in there...a lighter gun?

    Weird, brass knuckles with a built in cannon.

    I just got a C. Sharps .22 short pepperbox vintage 1850's-1870's in almost pristine condition. I received it from my mother-in-laws estate who recently passed away. It's been in the family nearly 100 years that we know of, and may have been purchased new by one of the family members.

    I'm working on getting some photo's of it, then I'll post a thread about it.

    That was a cool set of photos. Thanks for posting it.
