Colt 1903 .32 Smokeless Rimless? Great little pistols, flatter than a book- they made at least 5 different variants. Total production of the pocket automatics was about 570,000. Production was 1903-1945, but the military was still issuing them as the General Officer's Model until about 1972.

Not incredibly pricy, but not an RG or Jennings, either.

Well, in light of the 1903 colt...."Which Russian handgun was inspired by its design/form?"

Agreed.

Desert, if you ever go to the Book Depository Museum perch (you can actually look out from the window next to it) looking down at exactly where Kennedy was shot (X marks the spot) and up from The Plaza to the window, if you have any serious practical multi-position slow, timed and rapid-fire shooting training/experience (let's call it "military" for argument's sake) you'd just shrug your shoulders and say "OMG, what an easy shot"!

Conspiracy over.

Ok, I've got some more questions for you guys......

What plane did Francis Gary Powers get shot down in over the USSR?

What movie made the WW2 Nazi marching song "Panzerlied" famous in the U.S.

What does the 17 stand for in the Glock 17 pistol

What other caliber did George(sp?) Luger make his famous Luger pistol in?

What does the R in 7.62x54R stand for?

Correct. Many people mistakenly call it the 7.62x54 Russian
