Jarre Double Action Harmonica Pistol, The bullet chamber houses nine pinfire 38 cartridges. The action functions in both single and double action. There is lower trigger attached to the rear of the primary trigger which fits through a slot in the bottom of the trigger guard that when pulled back advances the chamber and cocks the hammer. To fire double action one simply uses the primary trigger in the traditional manner.
Weapon design is often meant to inspire fear, but occasionally it's just so goofy or strange that you wind up laughing. Such is the case with the weapons in this gallery, which include a scooter rifle, acoustic kitties, and harmonica guns.
