And so, one bright day at the national sporting goods wholesalers’ show, where the firearms industry congregated annually before SHOT appeared and became their very own trade show, Elmer Keith and Bill Jordan got together.

41 Magnum of yesteryear, there are multiple, striking parallels. I wrote about it in the article that follows, as handgun editor of Guns magazine. It appeared in my column there in 2008, and in this book on page 26. 41 Magnum revolver and cartridge had been to make a better police gun.
