Torch Revolver Guns Down Things That Go Bump In The Night

Presumably invented to deal with monsters like the Bogeyman before modern science proved they didn’t exist, this functional torch includes a .22 calibre seven-shot revolver on the business end. Perfect for peering under a dark bed and dealing with whatever’s hiding under there.

Another more accurate theory is that it was produced in the early 1920s by Buffalo-based S.P. Cottrell & Son for use by security guards and night watchmen as a quick way to deal with intruders as soon as they were spotted. And you thought that baseball bat torch was dangerous. At least you can run from that.
