“Ladies, Don’t Argue With A Burglar” – Iver Johnson Revolver Ad From 1871

Ladies, don’t argue with a burglar–show him a revolver. “Don’t wait until the horse is stolen before you lock the barn.” Old saying, but true. Ladies can handle the new Iver Johnson Safety Hammerless Automatic Revolver with absolute safety. Accidental discharge is impossible. Children cannot discharge them. Price $5.50.


Indeed. When seconds count, the police are minutes away. Or, in the 1870s, hours away.

  1. FYI, Iver Johnson revolvers were used to assassinate William McKinley and Bobby Kennedy.
