    The gift that keeps on giving.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Handheld…….one word, so many meanings.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Just don’t try to take that particular handheld to Italy. The EU doesn’t like free citizens (nee serfs) who are able to defend themselves without Gubberment assistance

      • silvergreycat

        Link above, whose contents came from Wikipedia, is a ‘starting point’ towards getting more information on this subject.

    • Bill G

      Statists hate the idea of the peasants trying to do anything for themselves without the gummint.

  • What DBW said. Europe really sucks when it comes to personal weapons.

  • John T. Block

    Love the “Point and Click” interface….

  • JackDeth 72

    To quote Colonel Hannibal Smith of ‘The A-Team”:

    “Overkill Is Under Rated!”

      37. There is no ‘overkill.’ There is only ‘open fire’ and ‘reload.

    Travelling with a handheld is getting harder all the time…

    • silvergreycat

      Zed could, through his contacts, arrange for Damon and Jan having all the paperwork letting them conceal carry…

      • Paladin

        So could Jan’s father. By paperwork I mean bribes.

        • silvergreycat

          Or both…

    • JTC

      Now that right there is funny WayneM…but these days especially, is grounds for dismissal, lawsuits, even criminal pursuit. 😉

      • Pamela

        It all has to do with whom you are traveling 😉

  • JTC

    What is that, a Px4 Storm? Seems appropriate.

    • PaulS

      Maybe that there is a Glock 7. 😉

  • NotYetInACamp

    I may go to Europe next year. It has been a very long time since I was there.

    I would like a diplomatic passport so that I can speak freely, and to be able to return fire should I be fired upon and if doing so will take care of the situation.

    Anyone who could get me one, please do. 🙂 It is so little that I ask for.

  • Pete231

    My close quarter room cleaner of preference would be the Dueller Prismatic .45 ACP with the twin barrel, single slide action. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Double Tap”. Have more fun than God allows….

    • Old Codger

      I’ll see your puny, double barrelled Dueller AF-2011 and raise you 2 more barrels. For your edification, I present the AF-2014 Quadruple 1911 from Cybergun. 😮 Why merely double tap him with a single trigger squeeze when you can QUADRUPLE tap him?

      And for the AF2011,
      Double your pleasure
      Double your fun.
      Shoot with two barrels
      Instead of just one. 😉

  • Browncoat

    “Awww…. She went to Walther!”

    • Browncoat

      Or maybe H&K…

      • eon

        European made weapon in Europe, probably a 9 x 19mm. Assuming it has no U.S. import marks, the handy thing is that if you have to use it, you can drop it down a street drain with less chance of it coming back to say “hello” with the authorities tagging along.

        • Unca Walt

          “Walt her.” <– Except that I have my own gorgeous redhead, I would be very willing to Walt her.

        • JackDeth 72

          Looks like their “Self Cocker”, Chris.

  • Boobie the Rocket Dog

    “X”-mas? Really?

    • JSStryker

      Well it is Jan, some habits die hard.

    • JTC

      She’s not using it in the modern vernacular of replacing Christ in Christmas, or in a nod to crass commercialism Boobie. Nor I’m sure, does Chris intend it that way. X as a symbol for Christ goes back centuries and is actually a Christian device.

      But I do think most people see and consider its contemporary use in a secular context and I never use it and never will.

      Keep Christ in Christmas!

  • Old Codger

    OT: Was taking one of those online quizzes at about recognizing historical figures from a single photo or painting. The following came up about Columbus. (I have a strong suspicion who the person doing the quiz voted for in ’16)

    Columbus was a bad, bad man who did bad, bad things to the natives of the places he visited. And yet, we still celebrate a holiday named after him for some reason.

    • PaulS

      And he never visited North America.
      And yet, we celebrate a holiday named after him, go figure. 🙂
      Of course now we call it “Indigenous peoples day” who rarely discovered anything at all, now that is a real mystery!

      • Pamela

        I thought he helped one tribe go after the cannibals that were wrecking havoc in the area…

    If you are looking at a CCW item, take a look at the Sig P938. All the goodness of a 9×19 in a .380 package. Weighs less than a pound empty. I was surprised. It operates like a 1911 so I did not have to retrain spousal unit on load, acquire, aim, fire, rinse and repeat routine. True it only holds 6-7 but extra mag is small and fits in pocket. I only use the extended mags as I like a pinky rest. Dragonworks makes a really nice IWB for it.

    You know around 1350 Count Manfredini from the town of Polizi Generosa rallied the native Sicilians and expelled the muslim invaders from Sicily to the point that native Sicilians only have trace amounts of Arab/African DNA in the gene pool. If I know my long lost relatives, it must have been open season with no bag limits. It going to be interesting times when push comes to shove on the island.

      RIP W.D. Iggle.

      Kilt by a dawg yet again, this time a 19 y.o. young’un.

      Sorry, SD, wifey is a GeorgiaGirl, and I’m a little skeert of her 5ft zip self, even after 45 years (46 on 12/18!). :[

      • Spin Drift

        I was at the Iron Bowl, that game was a war. I’m surprised anyone was still standing after it. The Tigers played there heart out but sometimes a lack of bench depth will haunt you. I’m rooting for the SEC teams to beat OK and Clemson. That will be a title game to see. By the way my special snowflake almost went to Georgia Law School. ‘Bama gave her a full ride though. She’s taking 1L finals now.

  • Interventor

    Until recently, the weapons black market was an open secret in Brussels. Not now. Anything smaller than artillery pieces could be purchased. Those could be delivered.

    • JackDeth 72

      And to think, thirty years ago. That market was centered in Panama.

      How times change. Yet stay the same.

  • JTC

    Buncha Kraut lovers here…but not in Italy, hence the Beretta I mentioned above as the Mattel knockoff of choice over there. I do like PaulS’s G7 suggestion up there though…Austrians may still be ersatz Jerries but hey, porcelain!
