Fantasy/Myth – Kubo of the two strings
Action – The good the bad and the weird
Joules- La Pistola Del Diablo
La Pistola del Diablo. The most feared gun ever smithed.
This infamous six shooter has a long and bloody history. It’s been used as a tool of law and of anarchy. Of of justice and of murder. But no matter who used this weapon and who was the unlucky sod on the receiving end of a lead slug, there were only two winners.
Legend says that this weapon is the result of pact between Death and the Devil. Those holding the pistol could hear the Devil’s whisper, tempting them down the easy path. Corrupting their good intentions. (You know what they say about the road to hell and intentions, right?). So the devil could keep filling the pits of hell with sinners.
What did Death get out of this deal? Well those souls that weren’t damned were given over to Death. Innocent victims with any venial sin on their soul were given over to Death. Forever denied access to heaven. So Death’s domain swelled.
This weapon initially gained infamy during the time of the civil war. It was standard practice to take weapons off of fallen soldiers. So this gun passed from hand to hand. From Billy Yank to Johnny Reb. Then the time of manifest destiny saw it’s corruption spread further. The gun passed from the pioneers to the native peoples, mine owners, railroad workers and more.
So be careful out there. Be sure you go to confession regularly. And never take a gun from a fallen foe. To do so is to risk your soul.
Buenos Noches, Pistolero.
