American Rifleman - October 2016 - 82

HANDGUN A Very Special Colt's venerable Woodsman is an American rimfire icon, and it's right at home anywhere you take it- even on safari in Africa. BY JOE COOGAN lthough largely recognized as a big-game hunter with a penchant for big-bore rifles, Ernest Hemingway also held certain smallbore chamberings in high esteem. In particular, he favored the .22 Long Rifle, for which he once claimed boldly, "... standing in one corner of a boxing ring with a .22 caliber Colt automatic pistol, shooting a bullet weighing only 40 grains and with a striking energy of 51 foot pounds at 25 feet from the muzzle, I will guarantee to kill either Gene Tunney or Joe Louis before they get to me from the opposite corner." It was certainly strange indeed that the old master used this macabre scenario to illustrate his implicit faith in the .22 caliber, but he obviously wanted to emphasize his point. Hemingway followed with this admonition, "The rifle and the pistol are still the equalizer when one man is more of a man than another, and if ... he is really smart ... he will get a permit to carry one and then drop around to Abercrombie & Fitch (New York gun shop) and buy himself a .22 caliber Colt automatic pistol, Woodsman model, with a five-inch barrel and a box of shells. This is the smallest caliber pistol cartridge made; but it is also one of the most accurate and easy to hit with, since the pistol has no recoil."  Ironically, and in direct contradiction to Hemingway's claims about the .22 caliber's capabilities, just recently a Florida man accidentally wounded himself while cleaning his .22 handgun-it was three days later before he discovered blood on his shirt and realized he'd previously shot himself. The incident raised many questions, and eyebrows, to be sure, but the police investigating the mishap determined it was an accident and did not file charges. As the old saying goes, "You've gotta be tough, if you're gonna be stupid." 82 OCTOBER 2016 AMERICAN RIFLEMAN Photo by Karl Ronstrom
