Circa 1938: Revolver Camera
A Colt 38 carrying a small camera that automatically takes a picture when the trigger is pulled. At the left: six pictures taken by the camera. New York.

I wonder whether it simultaneously fired a live round.
If so, it might have had some use in self-defense. Maybe. But if so, it could easily have tended toward a fatal accident when used as a camera by someone who “knew” the gun “wasn’t loaded.”
And if not... rather a dangerous way to take photos.
I wish you hadn’t posted this. In a year this will be a required feature on all guns sold in California.
Kind of hard to holster that sucker, isn’t it?
Amazing little revolver. I’m surprised it hasn’t developed into a popular item.
LOL @ the keyword “say cheese”. Should be “say swiss cheese”.
lol! Hard to conceal also.
If it was loaded, the shooter wasn’t worth spit, doesn’t look like he hit the guy in any of the six shots.
Oh man we are in Claremont Ca and moving back to Texas on July 31, and I cannot wait. People out here, the libs, are CrAzY! One of them is a teacher who saw my NRA sticker and questioned that. I said, I also have three pressure cookers and I would NEVER use them to harm anyone, I would never use a gun to harm anyone! Libs just don’t Get It.
Boy! your teacher ‘friend’ would have a cow if he/she saw my back window in my F-150....Ruger, Beretta, S&W and Glock decals in the rear window corners, a stick that says “Infidel” in English and Arabic, the “I” in “Infidel” is an AR-15 standing straight up....
Rear bumper has a black on white 1911 “country” decal on it.
Smile, now wait for the flash.
I have a security guard that works for me, he, while working in a parking lot, directed a woman into a handicap parking spot, she rolled down the window and screamed at him that she wasn't handicapped. He said, "sorry, I saw your obama 2012 bumper sticker and figured you were insane." She reported him, I gave him a hundred dollar bonus and dinner for him and his family at a very, very nice restaurant. He is also on the short list for a promotion and a raise at the very earliest time he qualifies.
After the Civil War, under a corrupt and abusive Fed Gov many people went GTT (Gone to Texas).
Some of the Bush Administration put notes on their door when they left DC with GTT written on it.
You are not the leading edge of the exodus but welcome neighbor. Am told there are 1200-1500 per day moving here.
Be careful who you let in, they’ve ruined Florida.
This is truly sick and hilarious.
How cool is that?
Imagine, blowing away someone and get to keep the expression on their face forever.
