Re: Questions about 1960's Cold War Era Weapons
Hello everybody. Thanks for all the great response. I really appreciate it. You've given me some wonderful information and insights. There's quite a lot of great stuff here for me to do some research on now. I think this time in American history is so fascinating. I enjoy reading a lot about the Cold War, especially during the 1960's. Plus I enjoy spy novels set in that decade, both those written now and books actually written back then. I definitely want to look up the different weapons that were mentioned here. I can't wait.
Seeking your opinion on something. Curious to see what you guys say. If you were a secret agent in let's say 1965, working for some sort of Western intelligence service (CIA, something with NATO, etc.), you had to have a gun that could be concealed in your suit or tux, and that could be equipped with a sound suppressor if you needed to do that for a mission, what would be your weapon of choice? A gun that you could use with or without a silencer to carry out whatever your objectives in the field. It was be neat to see what you pick.
Thanks again for all your helpful advice. It does seem like there were some big changes in the weapons selected by various military and intelligence services during this era. Take care. Happy New Year. Keith
P.S. I saw that book mentioned The Handgun. I did look it up. Any other books that were released then or now on weapons used in the 60's?
