If you thought a double barrel handgun was cool, you'll salivate over this triple barrel revolver.

As Gizmodo puts it, if you have an issue hitting your targets, your odds could drastically improve with this small firearm. It notes, aside from being made in Spain, little is known on the "mad gunsmith" that created this revolver. Here's the description of the gun by Horst Held, an antique handgun dealer in Texas:

A revolver made in Spain probably as a single piece because none of my friends and I remember ever seeing one, nor did I find something in the literature. To adapt the 6.35 pistol cartridge the cylinder has two connected rings in which one can insert the cartridges and closing the second ring, the cartridges are safely stored -- similar today's speed-loader. On the back of the strap is a switch, center position will hit the inner circle, left position six hits skipping one in the outer circle and after pushing to the right the firing pin will hit the remaining six cartridges. Under the switch is additional a safety blocking the hammer. It is a tip-down or break-open system similar the Smith & Wesson models. The 3" barrel has a fixed front sight and the above pictured description. The cylinder and barrels are blued, the frame is nickel plated, the checkered hard rubber grips are crisp.  The former owner doesn't know about the background, only he claims it is an unique revolver. In good working order and fine condition.

According to the website, the gun is no longer available.

Neatorama calls it "inventive but impractical." Check out more photos of the gun here.
