Let's Give This Guy a Present

A century or so, it was not unusual to give someone a revolver as a gift. The revolver would rest in a nice, velvet lined wooden box with a partition for the gun itself. There would also be a little wooden cartridge tray with drilled holes to hold twenty or so cartridges, which, of course, would be all filled with cartridges.

When the suggestion was that the recipient of the gift should use the gun to off himself, the tradition was to only put one cartridge into the cartridge tray.

I agree with Fixer; we should chip in to give this guy a gun and one cartridge.
