By: Randall Graham

The famous Smith & Wesson original .357 Magnum Revolver was developed
primarily for use by law enforcement personnel. The first registered
Magnum was presented to the FBI's J. Edgar Hoover. In 1935,

of the .357, even though they feared they would have a lackluster
response to the pistol's introduction, because of the high
production cost which had to be passed on to buyers. The Magnum was
much more expensive than other pistols of its day. The economic
restraint of the Depression didn't help. For these reasons, their
original plans called for a limited production run.

Quote of the Day:
"The republican principle demands that the deliberate sense of the community should govern the conduct of those to whom they intrust the management of their affairs; but it does not require an unqualified complaisance to every sudden breeze of passion or to every transient impulse which the people may receive from the arts of men, who flatter their prejudices to betray their interests." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 71, 1788
