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

1 BEAR GRYLLS’ MULTI TOOL

Has two good-sized compact blades, needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, fine-edge and serrated knives, plus a small booklet with survival tips from Mr. Grylls himself.

Make Yourself Automatic Music Search System

Automatic music search system, popularly called AMSS*, is nowadays incorporated in many commercially available cassette recorders. With AMSS one can skip the present music or go to the starting point of the presently played music by pressing ‘Cue (FF)’ or ‘Rew’ keys.
