A first what, you may well ask?
Each of these high-condition classic pistols is the first associated with a given cartridge. Some of them were the only pistol made for that cartridge… others were the first of extremely long lines. How many of them can you name?
These all come from an informative and entertaining gallery on imgur.
The sub-theme that I am going to write about today is “firsts”. First pistol made in the various semi-automatic pistol calibers. I think it’s an appropriate topic as we approach the first of the new year. Note this is not a complete collection in that I don’t have a pistol in EVERY semi-automatic caliber. But I’ll share with you the ones that I do have.
His collection has some very fine pistols in it.
