This is a very old box of Winchester .32 Caliber Short Shot shell Cartridges I recently acquired. I have never had a box of shot cartridges this old. This is also the first time I have noticed reference to Tranter pistols on an ammo box. Trantor was a British pistol manufactured for approx. 1854-1880 and was popular among Confederate Military. I don't recall ever seeing a Tranter chambered in .32 short but apparently there must have been some. Most of the Tranters I've seen were in .36, .44 or .50 Caliber. The shot shells were mainly intended to kill small game and pests. I suppose these could have come in really handy if you were a hungry soldier in the wilderness. Another surprise was the original Winchester New Rival Ad insert I found inside the box in perfect condition with nice colors.
The rumors of a new single stack Glock 9mm have been flying around for some time but it looks like they are true. The photo above is a leaked photo of the new Glock 43, 9mm single stack. It will be a little larger than the Glock 42 .380 and a little smaller and lighter than the Smith and Wesson Shield. The mag capacity will probably be 6+1 like the Glock 42. There will be an official announcement and unveiling at Glock headquarters on March the 20th 2015. It should prove to be very popular since it will be a more concealable 9mm than the 26 which is too bulky for some people.
Let's just hope it's not a hoax like this April Fools Glock 1911! LOL
That one had me going for a few minutes.
A great chart from Bass Pro Shops that lists a lot of popular caliber cartridges and their suitable game matches. Very handy to know you are using an appropriate caliber for whatever you are planning on hunting.
