There's a story about a British major in WWII who could never remember the password when challenged by sentries; his solution was to always carry his umbrella with him, his reasoning being that "it would be quite obvious to anyone that the bloody fool carrying the umbrella could only be an Englishman."

That was  Major Allison Digby Tatham-Warter. The story was applied to someone else, Lt. Col. John Frost, when the film A Bridge Too Far was made.

Mock26: Sure thing.  I will just point it at you (with the safety off) and pull the trigger.  Either way I will be right and you will be wrong.


So your idea of proving to me that you're a responsible and law-abiding gun owner is to commit assault with a deadly weapon, bordering on attempted murder with premeditation?

Impressive.

And here you see the thought patterns of a "responsible" gun owner. And you just have to scratch your head and think for a bit.

Anyone who really wants a gun that bad is probably unqualified to own one.

To be fair, notice such incidents happen in coastal places. And notice which dear leader is harping on limiting guns and probably umbrellas next.

Went to a gun store today to purchase a revolver.  While I was there, the clerk turned on the laser pointer on another gun and aimed it at a co-worker across the room.  I loudly called out the clerk on the stupidity and irresponsibility of this action.

The owner was there, over heard it, and fired her on the spot.

Also, you're an idiot who shouldn't be allowed to be around guns, assuming you're old enough.

Ended up buying a Ruger SP101 .357 magnum.

I'm torn. On one hand, I see and know many people who have never been involved in a crime, who are responsible in their handling of firearms, and don't act like having a gun on their hip makes them Rambo.

On the other hand, I see people like  Mock26.

This. And the fact that none of that money is his. And the cigarette isn't lit, because if it were lit, he'd be in trouble with his CO, and he knows it. So he didn't light it. The whole picture screams "pussy d-bag."  And Mr. Testicle Thundercles thinks this is some sort of photo he wants to be associated with. Hahahaha.


Look again, his finger is outside of the trigger guard.

Looked at a few of those.  Only complaint is that I don't like how the magazine looks protruding out of the grip.  Just looks off/wrong.  Might get one eventually, though.

Though, I'm tempted to get a ridiculous old fashioned or Fear of God revolver at some point.  Like 13" in length moronically long.   Maybe a Ruger Redhawk...

[whynotboth?.jpg]

I love my Hi-Power. It's an absolute tack driver. I could do without the mag safety though. Will removing it facilitate magazines dropping free? The only things I will probably modify on it are getting new grips and putting an extended thumb safety. Otherwise, it's like Browning was working with a mold of my hands when he designed the Hi-Power. The one thing I don't understand is why Hi-Powers don't come with an extended beavertail, not that I have a problem with hammer bite.

I've already field-stripped, cleaned and lubed my 1911 to shoot tomorrow. No idiot mark!

Prove to me a semi-automatic weapon that is fed from a magazine, with a magazine charged in the action is not loaded.

Or did you not pay attention to rule 1 of gun safety?

Um, I thought loaded was when the action is cycled and a round is fed into the chamber. Or is that ready to fire? Dammit.
