Hickok45 Tears Things Up With a Pedersoli Howdah .45/410 Pistol

This Pedersoli Howdah .45/410 pistol is just incredible.

Firing .410 shells or .45 Colt ammunition, this pistol gets the job done.

Watch as YouTuber Hickok45 tries out the Pedersoli Howdah .45/410 pistol.

Back in the day, Howdah pistols were popular safari sidearms. They packed a punch big enough to defend against tigers and other possible threats.

At first glance, the Pedersoli Howdah .45/410 pistol looks like a sawed-off shotgun. Well, looks are deceiving. This weapon has rifled barrels, meaning it is a proper pistol and not a smoothbore shotgun. It transfers to the buyer just like any other pistol does. It can shoot .410 shotshells and .45 Colt ammunition. 

Hickok45 has quite an enjoyable time blasting away with this throwback to another time. What is there not to like from such an interesting weapon anyway?
