  Important Historic Note
A letter from Clifford J. Edwards, M.D., of Bonners regarding a conversation between Sandy MacNab & Douglas Wesson: “Some years ago, in the early 1930s, I believe, when Sandy was taking a trip to Alaska, his friend, Doug Wesson gave him a pistol and asked Sandy to try it out and give Doug his opinion of it. On Sandy’s return, Doug asked him what he thought of it. Sandy replied, ‘It’s pretty nice; I think I’ll keep it.’ Doug replied, ‘The hell you will, that’s the prototype. I’ll give you one of the first when it goes into production.’”
