Ballard .41 Rimfire Derringer: An Old West Boot Gun

All the best firearms history channels streaming to all major devices:

Charles H. Ballard is much better known for his single shot rifle design, but he also designed, patented, and produced a .41 rimfire caliber derringer. These were popular concealed weapons during the 19th century, and remain in production even today (though no longer in .41 rimfire…). Production began circa 1870, and a few thousand of Ballard’s derringers were made.
