Wax-Bullet Dueling Pistols of the Past

wax bullet dueling pistols

Wax-bullet dueling pistols sound like a great thing for the next backyard barbecue.

Ian from Forgotten Weapons found these vintage pistols in his travels and decided to share a video about them.

These would make for a unique way to end heated debates.

Dueling was a very serious matter at one point in history. Participants of this bloody feud-ending sport ended up maimed or dead.

Well, that was until someone realized a wax bullet and protective gear could save lives. It also could be a fun way to settle disagreements at family picnics, too.

We’d like to give a special thanks to Ian from Forgotten Weapons for finding such odd, intriguing relics. The history of these firearms is kept alive through your thorough videos.
