    Elmer Keith and Smith and Wesson of course. He came up with the first magnum which was the .357 S&W. S&W put it into production and gave the world the word "magnum" as applied to firearms.

    Oh and when I think of Mopar engines I think of the hemi.

    And champagne goes flat if you try to down a magnum yourself. That's only for a crowd od drunks. :) I haven't touched the stuff in quite a while myself.

    And when I think of Selleck "Quigley" and that modified Sharps rifle he had comes to mind first.

    BTW the second thing I think of when it comes to magnums is Dirty Harry and the S&W Model 29 .44 mag. I have a Model 629 myself and I'll be keeping it too. That thing will stop a tractor trailer.

    The third thing I think of is kinda sick. The .44 caliber killer himself, the Son Of Sam - David Berkowitz. That sicko jerk started a long tradition of sicko jerks that continues to this day. Wanna be famous? Just go kill a few dozen people and you'll get your fame. Sick. People like him are why I carry a gun.
