Did you know? How firearms influenced...
 
Did you know the modern day electric drill handle was modeled after the colt .45?

But did you know that the grips of dueling pistols were influenced by the handle of a handsaw? :)

In 1882 a French inventor made the first "photographic gun" this motion picture recorder used a glass plate fashioned after a gun barrel to capture the motion pictures.
