Pistol Patent Day
Date When Celebrated : Always February 25
"Shoot! I don't have a Pistol Patent." If this thought is going through your mind right now, then this day is for you. You should aim to get a patent today. Why, today is Pistol Patent Day.
In order to get a pistol patent, you must have a new design for a gun. Pull out your pistols from your locked gun safe, and examine them closely. Is there some way they could be improved, or altered? I'm sure you can quickly whip up an original design for a pistol, and lay down the permit application fees and such, right? If not, how can you participate in this day? .... we offer no answer to this question.
Did you Know? Samuel Colt invented the revolver, a pistol with multiple chambers for bullets. He patented this gun in Europe in 1835, and in the United States in 1836.
Today's Quote: "Everything that can be invented, has been invented." Charles H. Duell, Commissioner of the U.S. Patent Office, 1899
History and Origin of Pistol Patent Day:
Samuel Colt invented the pistol. He received Patent # 138 for it on this day in 1836. The patent was for the Colt Revolver with a rotating chamber containing six bullets.
We thought perhaps this day was to honor Samuel Colt. But, his birthday is in July.
