Though not released until after the great man's death, the Baby Browning is arguably one of John Moses Browning's most innovative designs. Long in the shadow of his more popular creations, such as the M1911 and the Colt 1903 Pocket Hamerless, this "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV takes an in-depth look at this history and design of the Baby Browning: the vest pocket of all vest pockets.
