The Early days of Automatic Pistols

In the final years of the Great Depression, just before the start of World War II, only two U. S. manufacturers produced what were then known as «automatic» pistols. Foreign autoloaders were made, but relatively few were used in America. The revolver, designed and brought into common use in America, remained the most popular type of handgun.

During World War II, the American public understood the value of proficiency and knowledge related to firearms. After that devastating war was over, there was a great interest in firearms of all types, but in particular in semi-automatic pistols. Servicemen during the war

NORTH AMERICA BY AIR PASS

In 1986, a friend and I were planning a summer tour of America and we both had a list of ‘must-do’ places to visit. These included the USAF museum, the water-bombers of Wyoming and the

Oshkosh airshow. For many years an Air Pass provided a popular, relatively inexpensive way for enthusiasts to travel extensively around the US. Several airlines offered the passes, which varied from a few flights to unlimited travel within a set timeframe, and you had to fly with the carrier across the Atlantic before being entitled to buy them.

Our travel agent said the best deal was

Hall of fame — 10 ICONIC EXPLORERS

Whether by land, sea or air, exploring has aided our understanding of the world. Let’s follow in some adventurers’ intrepid footsteps…

Leif Erikson

ICELANDIC 970-1020

Whether or not Leif Erikson was the first European to land in North America, he got there 500 years before Columbus. When King Olaf I of Norway sent him as a Christian missionary to Greenland, it’s believed Erikson was blown off course and discovered part of North America, which he named Vinland. Whether accidental or a deliberate detour based on another explorer’s tale, Erikson went on to establish a small settlement in Vinland (ie Newfoundland,

BRANDS HATCHING

Inspired by the successful, co-branded Harley-Davidson/Ford F-150 pickup, and in an effort to supplement a failing money supply from Washington D.C., Halliburping has gone green! The world premiere for the industry-leading regime change subcontractor’s first environmentally sensitive, alternate-fuel motorcycle, the coal-burning FLTHROWBAK, was held at Baghdad’s Armageddon, a biker bar-themed children’s self-esteem center. The entirely new model, an external combustion, single expansion, steam-driven touring bike, is not your typical rattle-clone retro.

Weighing in at a svelte 2400 pounds dry, the FLTHROWBAK’s tonnage rapidly increases as the gracefully stretched, 1500 psi-rated, 240-gallon boiler is filled with scale-fighting, Halliburping-supplied, depleted-Plutonium heavy water.
