Shot in a Revolver-I am a farmer and would like to have a revolver with which I could shoot squirrels or gophers in the field, and would like to get one with which I could shoot them as I drive along, and not miss them. I have two .22 caliber guns and they jump so much, so that I cannot be sure of every shot. What do you think about using a Colt .45 with a light charge of powder in the shell and the remaining space filled with shot? Or do you think that a light charge of powder and a light ball would be better?
I don’t believe the revolver loaded with shot would do the work as the short barrel and the rifling combined would cause the shot to spread badly. Why not try the Marble’s Game Getter with a twelve inch barrel? With this little gun the shooting of both shot and .22 caliber bullet is excellent, and you should be able to kill the gophers every time at fifty or sixty feet. It weighs only two and a fourth pounds, and can be used as a pistol or as a shoulder arm, as desired. If you want to shoot bullets you can do better work with the .22 caliber barrel than you can with a revolver or pistol of the same caliber.
