Cool thread, lt632ret. I have always liked the black powder pistols with a folding blade over or under the barrel. I never got one, but they are interesting.

Some folks still like the idea of a blade on their handgun for close up work. Here is a photo I copied from another forum, along with a link to the original forum as a courtesy to the poster of the photo. Note that the firearm is a .22 short and only 3.6 inches long. I think most folks got one of these just because it existed.
