The first guns with multichambered cylinders that revolved to feed one barrel were made in the late 1500s in Europe. They were expensive and rare curiosities. Not until the 1800s would revolvers become practical weapons for non-rich owners. One of the first was a flintlock revolver made by Elisha Collier in 1814. The first percussion cap revolver was invented by the Italian Francesco Antonio Broccu 1833. He received a prize of 300 francs for his invention, although he didn't patent it, his revolver was shown to the King Charles Albert of Sardinia. However, in 1835 a similar gun was patented by Samuel Colt. The first cartridge revolvers were produced around 1856 by Smith & Wesson.

Not the best choice for concealed carry.

I would NOT mess with the person that had that in a holster under their jacket, however.

You wouldn't go near a gang banger with that shoved down the front of his pants either ! :p
