About the Manufacturer:
Dan Wesson was the great-grandson of D.B. Wesson, co-founder of Smith & Wesson. He worked in the family company from 1938 until 1963 when S & W was acquired by Bangor Punta. Having formed a tool and die company in 1948, he left S & W and changed the name of D. B. Wesson, Inc. to Dan Wesson Arms. The company did well selling silhouette revolvers. But, by 1983 the family had gotten out of the company and business began to slump. Then Seth (the son of Dan Wesson) and Carol Wesson took control of the company renaming it Wesson Firearms Co.. This version of the company soon floundered. After several years, New York International bought up the name and restarted a company intending to produce the Dan Wesson design guns again. In 2005 CZ-USA acquired Dan Wesson Firearms and continues to market guns with that label.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
