  •  Yet, another reality-lite culture warrior diary. (10+ / 0-)

    25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953
    (3 years, 1 month and 2 days)
    Smith & Wesson's first .44 Magnum revolver, the Model 29, was built on December 15, 1955 and the gun was announced to the public on January 19, 1956[9] for a price of $140. Julian Hatcher, (technical editor of American Rifleman) and Elmer Keith received two of the first production models. Hatcher's review of the new Smith & Wesson revolver and the .44 Magnum cartridge appeared in the March, 1956 issue of the magazine. Smith & Wesson produced 3100 of these revolvers in 1956. [7]
    In addition, I have a very hard time believing that an early-50s National Guard unit would even bother with non-issued weapons when there was a massive World War II surplus available.

    I wonder ho many asinine reality-free Wreck List diaries we're going to have now the culture warriors are indulging in full-blown reality creation.

    The whole decade needs an asterisk.
