    That Danish pistol was taking part in the early 1900 US pistol trials, so the cartridge was at least meant to be a service pistol cartridge. And a .45 caliber 55 grain bullet being launched at...

    Personally, I grew to dislike thin grips despite having small hands (Mechanix size S fits me like, well, a glove). I just felt like my support hand could not be braced as well against the grip of the...
