Did You Know?
When Major Geoffrey Boothroyd wrote to James Bond creator Ian Fleming
after reading "Casino Royale", he criticized Bond's use of firearms. He stipulated that Bond's Walther PPK was not as potent a weapon as the .44 magnum (used by Dirty Harry) and that a shoulder holster (as seen in Dr. No
(1962)) does not provide as quick a draw as a belt holster (viz many Westerns). See more
