"The great simplicity and cheapness of this Pistol will facilitate its general adoption."
Bolen's Self-Protector.--This remarkable improvement in fire-arms ought to be in universal use. It has six barrels, which may all be fired in as many seconds, since nothing is required but to pull the trigger, when one barrel is charged and another instantly presented, capped and ready for another fire. Every mail-guard and driver ought to have one of these; so should every traveler for a considerable distance through a dangerous country; for one of these will defend a stage-coach against a dozen robbers. The moment they come into general use, as they soon must, robbery must cease altogether. None but a lunatic would venture to stop a carriage in which one of them even might be. The great simplicity and cheapness of this Pistol will facilitate its general adoption.
