The revolver 'is peculiarly American,- and American condi-i tions were largely responsible for Its inspiration. ; *• '- •> '-•' • Necessity Brings Invention Just fOO years ago, in 1836, the greatest ' military activity -in the United States was taking place in the Southwest. Texas was a wild country - and the '• Americans who lived there "were almost constantly engaged, ire a desultory warfare with Mexicans and Indians, largely the warlike . Comanches. It was about ;this period thaf the Texas J, s$ill irt ''exfstenfce and still' famous, came intfl : peiftg. They Vere OrgaJU lied as pe 1 ace'officers whose duties ;coh6lsted of 'putting down cattle •thievery, keeping the rtaraudliig Mexicans at bay, and Midtng'off the Indians.' Actually these peace 'officers' were constantly at war with some foe.- • They were heavily armed with rifles, double-barrelled shotguns and- horse 'pistols, strange 'as it may'seem today, they toimd themselves 1 too often at a disadvantage in fighting Indians. The Miexicans were more - easily 'handled because the fought.with much the same weapons that this Americans used. Of all the savage Indians of those days, no tribes were more ferocious than the Comanches. They, were amazingly skilful as horsemen and With their weapons, which consisted of lances and bows and; arrows. They| scorned firearms for' fighting, 'although they' might' use the rifle -for bringing down game. , . • The testimony of the period goes to prove that they were well advised in preferring/their primitive weapons, A Comanche warrior would circle entirely down on . the side of his mount and discharge arrows with incredible rapidity from' beneath the galloping horse's neck. The ; horse acted as a shield for the warrior and also constituted a rapidly moving target, difficult to hit at a distance. A band of these Comanches, employing these tactics, could take an equal number of Texas Rangers at a 'disadvantage. The Rangers could fire^but then would have to stop to reload and, as they did this, the clrculing Com- anches would do tremendous execution upon them. : It was this situation which suggested to Samuel Colt the necessity for a weapon which would discharge shots With, a rapidity comparable to that the Indians displayed in discharging their arrows. TThe revolver was the result. The 'fiwt model" was crude compared •to the' modern gun but it was a six shooter. Because Colt had Invented the piece to meet the Southwest emergency, and because it -was immediately adopted by the Rangers and others, for many jyears the Colt revolver was known as the Texas. Improvements In Pace With Times A great many interesting yarns are spun about the first introduction of Colt's revolver in the South- wesCThe Comanches were astonish.-ed. In their encounter with the Texas Rangers, they discovered that no longer did these men, have to stop :to ; . reload. Withering, uninter- •reupted fire'was poured into their 'ranks; The gun played an important part in the subjugation of' this .Wild country. It was said that, -.s'iw A'/:•«£• •**&.

' when the Mexican -War came 1 Wonp, > regiment of Texas; Kangers was organized .under the Colonelcy pf John C. Hays who had been a captain, of Rangers.; This regiment joined General sSachary Taylor and saw eoriie of the fiercest lighting of that war. They.were at Monterey and at Mexico City and, after • the Capitulation, were given the task Of putting down marauding bands of Mexican guer- Hllas-. They were the only regiment equipped with Colt revolvers and General Taylor Was so impressed with the efficiency of the gun that he requisitioned 1,000 from tho government. Colt, himself, had no plant, but he placed the contract with Eli Whitney, the Inventor of the cotton gin, who had a gun factory in Connecticut. With each madel some improvement upon the .original was made, one of the most important having been suggested by Samuel H. Walker, a captain of Texas Rangers. Indeed, that paiiipular model was known as the: Walker-Colt revolver. When the 'California' gold rush began, the revolver was carried farther west, playing an increasingly important part in protecting Americans from their Indian and other enemies. Of course, it was inevitable that 'Americans should use their six shooters on each other, top. The pony express was started arid the mail stage lines and with every step of the winning of the West, the Colt revolver kept pace. That was itiO years ago and today the West presents a different picture. But' there s'till are plenty of six shooters there arid they are not" all in Hollywood or'on motion picture wild west show location. Particularly in the'.'Southwest, the cattlemen, the' sheepmen, 'the oil men ,and nearly : every- other nwn native to that soil is seldom found without his gun. ? IPS.
