pistol held its own in the shooting galleries
until after tlie war.
tbk derringer period.
While shooting men clung to tb. dueling
pistol for gallery practice, in anticipation of
needing a knowledge of it soma time, they
could not carry such a weapon around with
them The dorringer was accordingly brought
out as a pocket pistol. It was a short weapon,
the barrel being but two and a half inches
long, but in the hands of the old time gam
blwrs on the MiauMippt steamboats it was a
deadly weapon. They often fought duels
with dfrringors, while in haud-to-hand con
flicts derringer were invariably ued if any
weapon besides a lowie knife were drawn.
Of course the fact that tli. derringer had
but oue charge was noted. To make up for
this two were carried. Theu double barreled
derrinKrs were introduced, on. barrel lying
beside the other, as in a shotgun. Conlin has
a double barreled flintlock dtrringer in bis
Broadway gallery. Th. flaxh pans wer. on
top of the lrrels. It was elaborately en
graved, but it w as about as unhandy a weapon
to get out of a man's pocket In a hurry as
could well be imagined. Many of the double
barreled weapons had brouza barrels, and
Just before the War it was a common thing
for funny writers to refer to double barreled
bras pistols as the type of untrustworthl
nesa. These weaons wer. generally of Bel
gian moke and never had an extended sale.
Tb. invention of metal cartridges was a
great thing for pistol makers. Many curious
weapons were brought out during th. war.
On. of the most novel was a three barreled
weapon with the barrels arranged vertically
one above th. other, while a substantial
bowia blade could be slid out beyond tb.
muzzles on occasion. Th. blade was fixed
there by a spring, and tb. empty pistol then
became a wicked knife. The double barreled
derringer of the present time, with th. bar
rels one on top of the other, was evolved from
After metal cartridges were adopted th.
production of light and etilcieut revolvers

brought out. Among a host of worthies cast
iron affairs were a few mad. by firms that
proposed to make tb. best sort of weapons
possible, and these few firms are still In the
business. Tb. good revolver proved so effi
cient that tb. use of derringers dropped al
most entirely. There is ouly one firm now
engaged in making derringers, and tb. de
mand scarcely justifies them in continuing
tb. style. Where .very gentleman one car
ried a brae., very few shooting men would
now tak. ou. as a gift, sav. as a curiosity.
And yet for a man in close quartan no
weapon is quite so efficient as the big bored
AFTER THE DCKL'S DICUNt
After the war the popularity of tha duel,
save only In isolated districts, was gone, and
tb. us. of duuling pistols even in shooting
galleries was abandoned. Revolvers becama
tb. popular weapons even in galleries. But
all this time a couple of firms wer. manufac
turing a single barreled pistol that was much
like the old dueling pistol in shape and
weight, and yet ued th. convenient metal
cartridge. Because these single barreled
weapons were extremely accurate and th.
cartridges wen cheap, say 9i.H0 a thousand,
the single barreled target pistol has at least
held on to the esteem of enough (porting men
to warrant the continuant-, of It manufac
ture. There are indications of a growth of
popularity in tha future. There are several
features of the target pistol that especially
commend it to the better class of sportsmen,
th. better class, as I understand the term,
including all who pride themselves mora on
one bead of gamo kdied clean by skilful
shooting than on a score slaughtered by a
portable cannon. As rillfe among these men
Increase in pularity they will turn to tb.

the riile for small gaum.
There are a mighty few men who ha v. th.
skill to do it, but it is psitie for a man to
bag as niauy partridges as b. ought to kill In
a dav with a target pistol only. It is a most

sportsman two birds killed with a pistol
"would be more aatiafuctory than ton killed
with a shotgun.
With a pistol, particularly in the hands of
a beginner, sitting shots are allowable, and
tb. man who shoots at ducks afloat ueed hav.
no fear that be is doing anything unsports
manlike. That sportsmen want frequently to go armed
for two sorts of game deer and small gam.
at ones is showu by th. fact that a double
barreled shotgun that has a third barrel be
neath for the use of ball cartridges has
large sale. The sportsman with oue of these
can kill pertridgt until a deer is jumped, and
then he is ready for the deer. The gun, how
ver, weighs snout tcu pounds, and that is an
awful weight to lug.
But a eeven pound rifle on the shoulder, a
on. pound pistol or a two iound pistol on th.
hip or In the hand, would by no means tlrs a
man as on. big weapon does. And yet th.
man with the necessary skill would find tb.
two light weight weapons quite as efficient as
th. one heavy weapon. If he bad only mod

wants is recreation rather than much game,
