For the person who wants to kill the shit out of somebody.
Okay, so partly it’s just because I find weapons interesting but also due to writing a gangster story but I mean… multi-purpose is pretty dang interesting.
And oh look at that, it is a gang weapon.
Les Apaches (French: [a.paʃ]) were members of a Parisian Belle Époque underworld subculture. Apaches were so called because their alleged savagery was compared with that attributed by Europeans to the Native American tribes of Apaches.
During their heyday, the prospect of being mugged or otherwise assaulted by Apache gangsters was especially feared by members of the emergentbourgeois middle class. Some of the gangs used a unique type of pistol which was named the “Apache revolver” or “Apache pistol”: a pinfire cartridge revolver with no barrel, a set of foldover brass knuckles for a handgrip, and a folding knife mounted right underneath the revolver drum for use as a stabbing weapon.
Due to the lack of a barrel, the revolver’s effective range is very limited, but since all of its component parts can be folded inward towards the cylinder, it was easily concealable inside a pocket. It was common to leave a bullet out of the chamber under the firing pin to prevent shooting oneself while having it concealed in a pocket or bag, as the weapon has no trigger guard or safety. This weapon is not able to be aimed precisely because of its lack of front and rear sights. Despite its limited potential, the revolver proved deadly at extremely close range.
My sister sent me this and at first I thought “No fucking way did Miley Cyrus try to cover Parton’s Jolene”.
30 seconds in and it quickly changed to “holy fucking shit”
Miley Cyrus - Jolene
this kills me. because why doesn’t she put out shit like this? it actually shows off her voice and talent. i’d buy this.
oh lord I have goosebumps
She has a good voice for this style of music. I really liked this.
I love how everyone in the band is just groovin’.
Almost sacrilege to boost a dolly song sung by someone else, but she nailed it.
BOW DOWN. Really, the whole session is worth a watch/listen.
(P.S. Dolly is totally her godmother, you guys. Just in case anyone needed more reasons to be jealous of her.)
