Turbiaux patent palm pistols could certainly benefit from a definitive work on the subject. In absence of such a work, we can take what we know and start to paint a picture of their history.
These little squeeze pistols are not only extremely collectible for their unusual mechanism and shape, but because of their many variations, finishes, grips, manufacturers, calibers, and even presentation styles. Side perk: A full collection won’t take up much space.
