The new revolver was a immediate hit. Everybody and their Bil, had to have one. Till they started shooting them. And found that 44 mag. Full bore ammo, was not fun at all to shoot. Firing a 50 round box would make your eyes cross, and give you a major case of flinchitas.
ha that lead to the .41 Magnum. state troopers wanted something more than .357 and certainly less than .44 Magnum. till they found out that .41 Magnum was still a bit much...

No he didn't... Smith came out 3 months before
