New (Old) Concealed Carry Revolver!
Let's face it, ammo is rare these days. Would you like to do your own reloads but just don't have the time to make ammo? Here's a new release of an old classic, made especially for you!
Quoting from Cabelas: "This model is identical to the 1858 New Army stainless steel .44, but with a shortened 5-1/2" barrel for easy concealment. ... rigid, tough and easy-to-maintain stainless steel ... one of the most powerful and rugged performers ... removable/replaceable cylinders ma[k]e reloading extremely fast."
Not only do you get .44 calibre stopping power, this weapon provides two advantages no modern revolver will match: from the first shot, you gain the immediate advantage of a smoke screen to provide temporary concealment for your own COM and the additional repugnant effect of burning sulfur stench (the smell of Hell) to drive away BGs. OK, replacing the cylinder may take a bit more time than using a cylinder speed loader, but after fanning six quick rounds, you'll be so deep in smelly smoke while reloading that you're invisible to any attacker!
Seriously, BP revolvers are a hoot to shoot and provide unparalleled satisfaction to hunt with. I just can't imagine why they advertise one ...for concealed carry?

Plus, you have a good chance of setting your attacker on fire!

I don't know about a BP pistol for CCW, but this looks like a heck of a way to say howdy to the BG
Davide Pedersoli Howdah Pistol
With twin barrels packing a one-two wallop, this big-bore pistol was popular with Europeans exploring the vast jungles of India and Burma in the mid-1800s. On a typical excursion, explorers and soldiers were part of an elephant caravan. Riding on a howdah (the basket perched atop an elephant) may look safe in today's world, but a century ago danger was imminent. Tigers could scale the side of a slow-moving elephant in the blink of an eye, causing great concern for startled riders. To combat surprise big-cat attacks, the Howdah-style side-by-side pistol was created. Two cavernous 20-gauge smoothbore barrels may be loaded with buckshot, a single slug, or the devastating "buck and ball"-load common in big-bore muzzleloaders used on dangerous game. Whichever you choose, this 4.4-lb. hand-cannon will square up on a target with a sense of authority not seen since the days of Victorian-era British imperialism. Squeeze one of the triggers, and you'll appreciate the hand-conforming checkered walnut grip and the recoil-soaking end-cap counterweight as this charge-stopping pistol lays down its withering hail of lead. Its case-hardened lockplates are engraved with detailed wild animal scenes. Mold your own 20-ga. round balls with our easy-to-use bullet mold (available separately). Also available is a top-quality leather Holster custom-built to carry the formidable Howdah Pistol.
And YES it would light them on fire.....now, where's my credit card

and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman."

Over a foot long and nearly five pounds, maybe a vertical shoulder holster (and combination back brace) to CC that one! Not exactly a SmartCarry/Thunderwear option.
