    Was Glock (g26) the first production gun designed with only three fingers needed to grip it? ...counting the opposable thumb, 4.
    I seem to remember seeing a hi-power that someone had "chopped" down.

    I'm not really sure, but they were the first to do it really well and on a large scale.

    I think you are forgetting J-frame sized revolvers and derringers.

    Colt Officers model, and Walther PP family come to mind as early short grip autos. When did S&W introduce the Chief's Special autos? Those were probably also around long before the baby Glocks.

    Edit: Le Bebe, the Baby Browning in 25 ACP is one of, if not the, earliest sub compact autos. There were plenty of similarly sized little 22, 25, 32, and 380 autos produced in the early 1900s as well.
