Tryon superposed loads pistol

Manufactured by one Tryon in Philadelphia c.1810′s.
.46 caliber 5 shots loaded front to back, flintlock muzzleloader.

A very early sort-of-repeating pistol from the United States, capable with enough luck of shooting five times in a row as fast as you can prime it. To use this weapon, its user would load it like normal, and then four time over, with careful attention so that each powder charge lines up with a touch hole. Starting with the front shot, the gun is half-cocked, primed, cocked and then fired. Afterward, the user lifted the next dust cover thingy, which simultaneously reveals the touch hole and allows the full flintlock mechanism to slide back in line with the second shot. Then priming happens again.

  • Saints Row: *Playable character can only be male*
  • The rest of the series: *Same playable character, but now there's also the option to be a woman*
  • The series as a whole: *Can thus be viewed as the story of a trans woman who goes from gang member, to gang leader, to star of a multi-media empire, to national hero, to President of the United Goddamned States, to Emperor of the Fucking Galaxy*
  • Me: nice

The President of the United States everyone.

Just felt like drawing my Saints Row boss Lyla since I finished SR4 today. I already feel like starting up the third game again haha. I like how this turned out with the flat colors. Inspired by this.

Happy Birthday to John James Audubon!

Photograph of President Truman at the White House accepting ten paintings by John J. Audubon, a gift to the United States from Australian philanthropist E. J. Hallstrom., 07/18/1951

Abbie Rowe, photographer. From the series: Photographs Relating to the Administration, Family, and Personal Life of Harry S. Truman

The naturalist and painter was born in Haiti on April 26, 1785. Sent to America in 1803, he lived on the family farm outside of Philadelphia, where he proved that the same birds return to the same nesting sites each year by tying strings around their legs. After 10 years in business—painting all the while as his hobby—Audubon went into the wilderness on an epic quest to paint the birds of American. A few years later, he sailed to England where his work “The American Woodsman” was an overnight success.
