Old country blues song, I can't think of the title, with the lines

I've got a .38 Special on a .44 frame
How can I miss when I've got dead aim

I didn't understand it in my folkie youth, but this was the ancestor of the .357 Magnum. S&W marketed it as the 38/44 Outdoorsman and offered special high-velocity ammunition.

Yes. My co-worker in the gas station in my long-lost youth had one. I had (and still do) a Walther PPK in .22LR.

Chris, thanks.
