I wonder if those Limey chicks were thinking "Nice revolver, but too bad 38/200 doesn't have enough power to pull the string out of a cat's ass."

While many we sent to England were .38 S&W, not all were.  Hard to tell, but those cylinders look like they might be .38 Spec.



The .380 Brit is a weak ass cartridge no doubt.

Yeah, I would feel like it was swinging in the wind if I was wearing that.

Nothing like a revolver built like a bank vault firing a cartridge that was slower than Christmas, but made up for it by being exceedingly light.

I need to dig up a book that broke down civilian commercial off the shelf firearms Lend-Leased to the British.  One number I remember was 152 Single Action Army revolvers in various caliber.

I think its at my father's place.  I'll talk with him tomorrow.  I've got books scattered over most of the CONUS, at this point.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki had to be filmed from a great distance for safety, making the very difficult to see.

It is reported that Wild Bill Donovan smuggled a HD-MS pistol INTO the oval office in a binder, and shot a sandbag with it while the President had his back turned.

The President did not detect the shot, and Donovan presented the pistol to the President as a gift.


The weapon was turned back over to the Army after it was discovered that the design was still classified.
