Albanians and their Revolvers

Albanians and their Revolvers
Keep your Kate Middleton look. The well-dressed Albanian bride sports a Gasser revolver at her waist and a Mauser carbine, while her groom backs up his rifle with a dagger and ornate Broomhandle Mauser. Celebratory gunfire, anyone?

Life has never been easy in the Balkans, Endemic sectarian violence and blood feuds mean a prudent man never goes unarmed. Going armed in the years before World War I often meant shoving a big 11mm Gasser revolver in your sash. If it was intricately engraved, so much the better. Watch for Paul Scarlata's study of the Gasser in an upcoming issue.
