    Rider Pistol
    Also known as the Parlor Pistol, this rare handgun was originally made in 1860 and was produced for only three years. The total estimated production quantity is less than 200. Not made for use with powder propellants, this diminutive sidearm launches its 4.3mm projectiles at surprisingly high velocities with the use of a percussion cap only. Own this accurate reproduction of a truly rare hallmark in firearm history. Two-piece breech. Solid steel grips

    Boo Boo maby, but not Yogi.
    Too hard to find the brain of Yogi.
    Like many Libs.

    Parlor guns, rifle or hand are neat. And a source of whole family enjoyment when cabined-in during long winter nights.

    Someone, I think it was Cabela's, but I can't find my catalog, was selling a replica of the rider pistol. Looks like it would be fun on the back porch.
