BEFORE YOU GO-GO
You wrote that 007 star Daniel Craig "is worthy of Bond's Walther PPK" [Loafer, July '06].  In the book Casino Royale, Bond uses a Baretta 25 mm.

Yeah, the book had a typo...
shoulda read "Walther PPK."



"Baretta 25 mm" huh?

It's not Beretta that makes the 25mm.

It's Barrett.

It was no mistake.

James Bond originally carried a .25 ACP.

In Dr. No, he was made to give it up and start carrying the .380, that Fleming wrote, "which hit like throwing a brick through a glass".

Fleming was a good novel writer.  He was not very knowledgeable about firearms.

I thought it was a .32.  Maybe the novel and the movie are different.

Yup, it was a .25 Beretta.
As said above, he was forced to trade it out for a .380 PPK.
In one of his books he used a 30-30 as  sniper rifles.

It was indeed, a .32 ACP.  Also, regarding Flemings knowldege about firearms.  Perhaps he was more of a "user" of firearms rather than an author "about" them.

It is widely accepted that Bond was more Fleming, than the other way around.  

He was, himself, an Officer with British Naval Intelligence during the Second War.

One of my former partners had a scar on his chest from being shot point-blank by a Beretta .25 Auto.

The bullet skipped off of his sternum and went about 4 inches sideways just under the flesh and stopped just over his left nipple. The doctor made a tiny incision just over where the bullet stopped and it popped out like an oversized lead zit. They put one stitch into the incision and cleaned shirt cloth out of the wound path, then sent him home about 30 minutes later.

Why people even carry mouse-guns like that is a mystery to me.

In India a man with 2 penis will have surgery. 1 of both penis will be removed. Following the India newspaper the 24 year old man wants the surgery because will mary soon.

During surgery the surgeons will try the remove the second penis without harming its functionality. Only very fiew cases like this have been known. The forst time it occured was in 1609. Since then only a 100 other cases have been known. In most of those other cases the second penis was underdeveloped.

This indian man had 2 healthy penis wich is something new for the medical literature

Pierce Brosnan still had a PPK in Goldeneye. I know in Tomorrow Never Dies, he picked up a P99. Can't say about his last two. The World is Not Enough was good, but I haven't seen it in a while. And the last one was such an atrocity, I usually refuse to acknowledge it's existance. It was an embarassment to all James Bond movies.

The last two he always carried a P99 (rumor has it that it is a .40), but obviously he'll pick up guns along the way. A 1911 of some sort in "The World Is Not Enough" and some large revolver in "Die Another Day."

This was the original movie poster for "Die Another Day", a suppressed Beretta.

I actually have a copy of this poster.  When I first saw it on display, I thought it was a cool picture, then I looked closely and noticed it wasn't his Walther P99.  Interesting that a Beretta ended up on the movie posted when I don't think he even used a Beretta in the movie.

Edit:  Darn it, forgot to quote the previous post concerning 30-30's as sniper rifles- sorry for the confusion!

I don't think that was in one of the Fleming books, I think that was in one of the Gardner book, but I can't remember which one.  If I recall it right they used 2 rifles to kill a target behind plate glass, timed to fire within seconds of each other so the first shattered the glass and the second hit the target before he could react.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
