He knew there had to be a better way to kill, a faster way to disperse the enemy. He would have to find a way to produce a weapon that would not only be quicker to load, but that would allow more shots per load. It all revolved around technology. Everything revolved around making a better use of technology. If the enemy had to find the time to pour the powder, pack the wadding, place the cap, aim and fire each time, the simple remedy was a revolver. But how many bullets should it hold? Five? six? Would seven prove to be too much? He thought of the shape of a honey comb-perfect.

    It seems you’ve been influenced by the invention of Samuel Colt. His invention was a huge step forward on he old muzzle loaders. Would seven prove to be too much? Had Colt gone this way we would have talked of the seven-shooter.
    I enjoyed the touch of history in your 100WCGU entry.

    Ross., I just kept coming up blank on this prompt-then I thought of my
    Weekend at Fowler Farm adventure (check down my list of blogs-its close to the top) and guns (which I don’t care for, but unfortunately the men in my life do… and thought of the shape of a honeycomb and how it reminded me of a six-shooter. I guess I just rolled with it. It came out better than I expected. Thanks for reading, Im a bit overwhelmed with all I need to and have to do right now. I think If I could find a moment of peace, it would be therapeutic to just write, write, write. I enjoy the topics in your blog as well. Thanks for taking time to comment. Best wishes, Beebee
