The Broomhandle gained respect during WW1. The Tsar wouldn't be caught dead carrying a German made firearm. He did not carry any, in fact, because he was the "anointee of God" who had nothing to fear from his people.

His court favorite Gregory "Mad Monk" Rasputin was murdered by a notorious member of the Russian parliament. That man carried an American "pocket" Savage semi-auto. He shot Rasputin in the head, but the victim died hard, so people later thought he was superhuman. Most likely it happened because the bullet was only .32 ACP and missed the lower brain.

http://www.policeone.com/patrol-issues/articles/5814200-Frank-Hamer-Texas-Ranger-Legendary-LEO-was-a-hard-man-to-kill/

How about Frank Hamer, most commonly known as the lawman who led the party that killed Bonnie and Clyde. While this is his most well known incident, he had a long law enforcement career, in which he won several gunfights. His favorite gun is reported as being a .45 Colt SA, which he called "Ol' Lucky". When I was in my early teens I read his biography, and his story has stuck with me.


P.S. It's pronounced "Hay-mer", not "Ham-er"

My favorite historical figure: Thomas Jefferson.

I'm sure, as a lover of liberty and a true gentleman, he would have had a brace of pistols similar to those below:

Ranger Capt. Hamer was a legend. He killed 54 men in 100 gun fights. He was wounded 17 times and left for dead 4 times. He spanned the end of the Frontier to the automobile age. He was inducted into the the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame.

John Wesley Hardin, deadliest outlaw of the Wild West. He started out with BP Colt .44/.36 revolvers, and used a shotgun from time to time. But was best known for his proficiency with his .41 Colt Thunderer.
