“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
A couple of years ago, after watching this, I stumbled onto one in pawn shop. Walked out with it.
Actually, it would be "Forgotten Firearms" that I saw.
I own 3.... 2 .32 and one.380

When did "semi-automatic" become a descriptor of pistols? For almost all of my 78 years, these were "automatic" pistols or "auto-pistols" or just "automatics." That is how every manufacturer and inventor described them until recently. The traditional distinctions for handguns were "revolvers," "automatic pistols," and "submachine guns." Both "automatic pistols" and "sub machinegun" were terms used by Browning.So, when are we going to stop defining shotguns by "gauge" and starts using bore diameter. We already have .410 shotguns, why do we still use the term "12 gauge"?
That came about due to the anti-gun forces attempting to equate anything labeled "automatic" as a machinegun, to get the fearful sheep upset more than they already were.
