A question for the Tracy fans:
as late as the 1960’s, Chester Gould had Tracy armed with a .357 Magnum. The Former Cartoonist Who Shall Not Be Named had Tracy, and everyone else for that matter, armed with automatic pistols.
When did this occur? I know cops carry a mix these days, but most Plainclothes that I have seen seem to prefer revolvers. Dare we hope for that much retro here?
