, ,

Did girls actually gun down mashers back in the 1950s? I don’t seem to remember hearing about it, but here’s Colt marketing its light-weight 2″-barrel .38 Special Cobra revolver as the maiden’s answer to unwanted male attention.

Never having been a maiden, I opted for a S&W model 36. Just cuz I could.

“When girls carry revolvers, as a Minneapolis young woman did, mashing is likely to become unpopular.”
