Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    A change of pace from me.  ;)



    Very good choice  :thumbup1.

    If it has strings, voices, or electronic bass, then odds are it's a keeper in my book :rock .

    Agreed.  Somehow I got the vision of a couple in formal attire dancing under a gazebo - sort of a waltz or modern interpretation of a minuet.  Passing strange .  .  .   :hmm

    Magnificent harmony, even when The High Kings performed at the corner of 7th and W 56th!

    Proof that my generation didn't invent the pop song.

    Umm .  .  .  the first Land camera went on sale in 1948 and the technology was actually invented in the 1920's.   Not nitpicking per se , just a point of order for those who weren't around.   :coffee

     :hmm interesting.

    While that may be, my point and joke still stands about a previous generation giving birth to something resembling today's pop songs 🍑  :neener.
