    VERY loosely in my case.

    Actually, the first time I heard that quote was when Michail Kalashnikov attributed it to the Russians.

    I have found it often times to simply be insane amounts of grip strength, as many old men once had positions that required it.
    The days of that sort of manual labor are rapidly changing and I am not sure how many of the "Boomers" fall into this group.
    However their fathers largely did.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.
