"The Paradox, invented by Colonel Fosbery and manufactured by Messrs. Holland and Holland of Bond Street, is a most useful weapon, as it combines the shot-gun with a rifle that is wonderfully accurate within a range of 100 yards. ... The No. 12 Paradox weighs 8.4 lbs. and carries a bullet of 1 3/4 ounce with 4 1/2 drams of powder. Although the powder charge is not sufficient to produce a high express velocity, the penetration and shock are most formidable, as the bullet is of hardened metal, and it retains its figure even after striking a tough hide and bones."-- Sir Samuel W. Baker F.R.S., F.R.G.S., etc., etc.
