  1. I heartily agree.

    I believe you saw my .41 Magnum Jedi light saber yesterday (That’s what Marko called it before he foolishly sold it to me. 😀 )

  2. [11:43] I went to Tam’s house yesterday
    [11:43] and she showed me her collection of S&W revolvers
    [11:44] Not as clumsy or random as a automatic.
    [11:44] An elegant weapon for a more civilized time.
    [11:45] YES
    [11:45] I want a roundgun so bad it hurts now

    (Our timestamps seem to be slightly off.)

    What’s funnier… this came immediately after my bitching about my brand-new-Meg-gar’s not working right for the BHP.

    “The World Is Not Revolver Friendly,” I tell our local revolver shooter when he vets IDPA stages for “revolver friendliness”. But a really good Smith (and the likelihood of being in a Miami-like-shoot) make me reconsider this from time to time.

    I really need to get Dad a cheap something, and get my slicked-up-65 back. (He was hauling around a pre-war S&W .38 S&W.. and he keeps forgetting it’s not a .38 Special. So far I’ve always intercepted the ammo in the box, but I figured it would be safer to say “HERE. Put .38 IN THIS”, finally)

  3. [11:43] [Ahab] I went to Tam’s house yesterday
    [11:43] [Ahab] and she showed me her collection of S&W revolvers
    [11:44] [Unix-Jedi] Not as clumsy or random as a automatic.
    [11:44] [Unix-Jedi] An elegant weapon for a more civilized time.
    [11:45] [Ahab] YES
    [11:45] [Ahab] I want a roundgun so bad it hurts now

    (Whoops. I didn’t think about it interpreting that as HTML. Need Preview!)

  4. Sebastian: Did you fire first, or did Greedo?

    For true elegance in a weapon, go with a single-action revolver. A Ruger Vaquero in .45LC is my own preference.
