HE’S A ONE-GUN GUY OFF THE SCREEN

On the screen, many a lad does feats of derring-do with pistols. Off the screen, Clark Gable has proven he can do things with pistols in scoring some high shooting records at the Hotel Del Monte, where he rested before starting work on his new picture “Cain and Mabel”. He’s shown on the Del Monte Gun Club grounds. In addition to pistol work, he’s a good trapshooter and fine fisherman. 5-2-36

LOS ANGELES: Jack Webb (R) now producing, directing, and starring in Universal TV’s “Dragnet 1966” receives his old police revolver and badge 714 from Los Angeles Police Chief William H. Parker. In 1958 when Webb stopped production of his “Dragnet” series, he turned his revolver and badge over to Parker.

St. Petersburg Police staged a line-up Friday afternoon, but it wasn’t the usual row of suspicious characters. In this case, it was 52 members of the police department trying out the new police pistol range. The range is to be used for training by area law enforcement agencies and is next to the Police Pistol Club on 47th Ave. N. The old circular bull’s-eye targets have been replaced with human silhouettes, and policemen practice firing their service revolvers with either hand and from behind car fenders, walls and other obstacles. The officers are timed for efficiency and rated on their shooting skill. Photo credit – Fred Victorin Dec 6 1968
