Fight Quarantine Blues with a Handgun Inventor Word Search

For all those gun fans who are spending more time indoors these days, we here at have been working on some puzzles with you in mind. In the second installment in our COVID-19 word search series, we concentrated on smart guys that coughed up successful pistols and revolvers over the past 150 years or so.

Those featured (last name only) include Robert Adams (patented the first successful double-action revolver in 1851), Fritz & Willibald Barthelmes (Walther pistols), Samuel Colt, Hugo Borchardt (C-93 pistol), John M. Browning, Pedro Careaga (Astra/Ruby), the Feederle brothers (C96 Mauser), George Fosbery (Webley-Fosbery revolver), Rudolf Frommer, Gaston Glock, Karel Krnka (M1904 pistol), Aimo Lahti, Venacncio Lopez (Campo Giro), Georg Luger, Ferdinand Mannlicher (M1894, M1901), Tullio Marengoni (Beretta M15, M17 and M35), František Myška (ČZ vz. 38), Kijirō Nambu, Josef Nickl (Vz. 24, CZ 27), Charles Petter (French Model 1935A), Abiel Revelli (Glisenti M1910), Andreas Schwarzlose (M1898, M1908 pistols), Earl Searle (Savage 1907), Alex Seidel (Mauser HSc), Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson (of Smith & Wesson) Fedor Tokarev (TT30/33), Carl & Fritz Walther, William Whiting (Webley 1912), and Piotr Wilniewczyc (FB Vis-35 Radom).

Of course, we missed a couple such as the Koucký brothers (sorry, CZ-75 fans), Nikolay Makarov, the Nagant brothers and Oscar Mossberg (Brownie), but the puzzle could only be so long– and we needed to save some for the next installment!
