One thing that will forever stay with me are Jame’s final words before parting ways. “You’re a good dude and you’ve got the right idea. You and I are going to have this conversation ten years from now, and I will leave you with this, SHOOTING IS THE EASY PART! Keep walking the path…”
I stood slightly confused in a cloud of dust as James peeled away with a shit eating grin on his face.
This is the chronicle of my journey along the path…
The Rare Prescott Magazine pistol,
Manufactured by the Prescott Pistol Company of Hatfield, Massachusetts, the Prescott Derringer was a rare repeating derringer produced in 1875. A break top design, a tubular magazine located below the barrel held six cartridges. When the pistol was opened, an ejector automatically ejected spent casings. A loading mechanism also readied a new cartridge from the magazine. When the pistol was closed the cartridge was seated into the chamber.
Prescott’s loading mechanism was iffy at best, and was prone to malfunction and failure. As a result few were made. It is estimated that only around 100 were produced and sold.
