Dueling pistols, circa 1730 supposedly belonged to Prince Charles Edward Stuart. As short and wide as those barrels are, I rather doubt that you’d be able to hit anything closer than arm’s length away—but maybe that was the point?
At the Royal Collection:

Provenance: Said to have belonged to Prince Charles Edward Stuart
Description:Duelling pistol of walnut with carved floral decoration on the stock, gold etched barrel and chased silver trigger guard and side pieces; the butt terminating in silver cap chased with profile head of a man looking left, on gold matted ground.

Remember, “said to have” is historian for “The story is most likely complete bs, but we like it too much to not tell it”.

SIGNAL BOOST!!!!

This video might be the most clever way to raise money for dogs in need, because all you need to do is watch it.

"Just by watching these puppies, you’re raising money for dogs in need," says the narrator in the video above. "You see, if a video goes viral, YouTube shares the money they made from advertising with whoever made the video, and in this case, every dollar we earn will go toward feeding, treating and finding homes for dogs who haven’t been as lucky as us."

The video comes from The Pedigree Adoption Drive, and ends by imploring viewers to share because the more views received, the more money will be raised.

So share this video. You know, for the dogs.
