Share Article

St. Louis – Coonan Inc. is thrilled to offer handgun aficionados at the National Rifle Association's annual meetings and exhibits in St. Louis the chance to meet Dan Coonan, inventor and designer of the Coonan .357 Magnum Automatic 1911-style pistol. The legendary gun designer will be at the Coonan Inc. booth, number 3905, on Saturday, April 14, 2012, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.

Use the opportunity to shake the hand that fired the world's first .357 Magnum Automatic, and get an autograph from the firearms innovator whose work changed the industry. If you're lucky, maybe he'll tell you how he created his first .357 auto. “Dan loves to tell stories,” says David Dietz, director of marketing for Coonan Inc. “If you start a conversation with him, you are on your own. And don’t say I didn't warn you!”
Visitors to Coonan's booth #3905 will also want to check out the .357 Magnum automatic itself. The 1911-style pistol is manufactured from stainless steel and fires standard .357 Magnum ammunition as well as .38 +P rounds. The gun is a revision of Coonan's original fabrication of his .357 Magnum automatic, and it has been a smash hit among handgun enthusiasts who want a unique pistol, something that isn't seen on the range every day.
Dan Coonan 's .357 Magnum Automatic has recently been featured on the cover of Shotgun News as well as in American Handgunner, Guns & Ammo's Complete Book of the Model 1911, and Special Weapons for Military and Police.
