Due to repression in the country and the use of excessive force by Police, first aid helpers had been using shields to protect themselves and the people they assist, who are injured and need to be taken to a safe place. In addition to the usual equipment they had to use in this context, what consist in white helmet, white coat, gas mask and a red or black cross visible in their body.

As we can see, Police hasn’t been respecting that and have attacked and open fire at protesters and volunteers, in the street and even in health centers.


Lefaucheux Mle 1858NT revolver

Made by the Manufacture d’Armes de Mutzig c.1859, converted to centerfire c.1873 – serial number 367.
12mm de Marine six-round cylinder, double action, side loading gate with manual ejector rod, new rear sight blade on the fluted part of the barrel.

When it became clear to the French Navy that they wouldn’t get either the Lefaucheux Mle1870 or the new Chamelot Delvigne Mle1873 anytime soon, they polished up their arsenal of Mle1858N revolver to use the same cartridges.


Lefaucheux Mle 1854 revolver

Designed and manufactured by Eugene Lefaucheux in Paris, France – serial number 21218.
12mm pinfire six-round cylinder, double action, side loading gate and manual ejector rod.

Eugene Lefaucheux’s father, Casimir, patented pinfire cartridges in 1835 to fit his previous patent, the break action layout for long arms. Improved in the 1840′s by Houiller, this early design of clean-firing metallic cartridges allowed for a multitude of breech-loading firearm designs to pop up in France, Belgium, Germany… you know any country that didn’t have a patent on bored through cylinders or just wasn’t full of stuck up idiots.
