    Pull!

  • JTC

    Muzzle discipline girl!

    Aaand…did they just shoot down the Jo drone?

    • CuriousB

      I’m pretty sure that’s the plot.

    • JTC

      There were a coupla those things, Jo morphed one to play her gag. But if they shot Jo why didn’t she morph the bullet? Inquiring minds and all that crap.

      • Chris Muir

        Naomi brought the drones from Argentina.Jo is wireless, after all.

        • JTC

          Oh A Bluetooth bot. I missed that part and thought she was the machine as before.

          Man, pretty expensive prank!

  • John M.

    I guess Sam is out of practice on partial reloads with a revolver… and I don’t care if the cylinder IS out, watch where you’re pointing that thing!

    • Pamela

      *chuckling* That’s how lots of babies get here. Things get pointed and go off before it can get pulled.

      • Too Tall

        Love the way you think.

      • GWB

        LOL

    • Dave

      Never seen a revolver with a slide before

  • WayneM

    Called it… lol

  • Kafiroon

    Magnum something.
    One shot.
    Destruction occurred.
    Do Not Pizz Her Off.

    • GWB

      You’re assuming she’s the only one who fired. Zed’s handgun is out, too.
      Likely TWO shots.

      • Kafiroon

        I’m assuming She is good. He is cool and precise.
        Known a number of women that are top line snap shots.
        I used to be.

  • NotYetInACamp

    What Jo, the Cylon, said.

  • NotYetInACamp

    They did make her jump, after all.
    So she pulled something also.

  • Like.many of Heinlien’s heroines, Sam is always armed. But considering how she dresses, where’s she HIDING that Roscoe?

    • Halley

      Speaking of which, my copy of Pankera just arrived. Seems no one is talking about this in the entire multiverse…?

      • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

        Never even heard of it. Had to look it up. Now I want a copy ASAP.
        I thought “Variable Star” (RAH/Spider Robinson) was the last release of RAH books.

        • Halley

          The ”new” book starts on page 152. I’m with them on Barsoom now.. The Patterson RAH biography covers the origin of this precursor to 666, and the marketing for Pankera has been a bit mysterious (though perhaps for legal reasons). In any case, a once in a lifetime event that should be rocking the world..

          • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

            I ordered Pankera this afternoon. I will NOT get stuck behind the “power curve” again, like I did with “Variable Star”. I bought that one 2-3 years after its publication, paid a VERY pretty penny for it (with SR’s signature) (and a lot of searching online to even find it – low publication?). Should be here EOM April-early May.

    • Too Tall

      Thigh holster.

      • Pamela

        How can a person get those things to fit properly…

        • Too Tall

          I’m certain there are any number of White Knights who would be happy to assist you.

          Or, you could try https://deneadams.com/

          Somewhere on YouTube is a video of a petite lady in light summer clothing unloading a squad reinforced worth of weaponry, in seconds, from Dene’s creations.

          • Ol' Country Boy

            Judging from your “picture”, you don’t need a hip holster, you need a flash-bang! All the ladies in my family carry flash-bangs. Some in addition to a lower back waist holster. The flash-bangs are more fun. If you don’t know what they are, I’m sure one of the readers can explain. I don’t think that flash-bangs would of any use for shooting down drones, however, but they are great for self defense. At least the perp will go out with a smile.

    • interventor

      Zed had to marry her to find out. Nice price to pay.

      • shooter 2.5

        If I remember, Sam and Zed were on their first date when they both found to be armed. That was in the days when the script was more like “Office Space”.

        • interventor

          A rather pitiful jerk attempted to rob them. After they disarmed him, they bought him a hot dog from a street vendor, with a warning.

    • MasterDiver

      The same place Minerva Long carries hers (And I AIN’T tellin’)

      Zar Belk!

      • Fox2!

        Nor is she.

    • Jefferson A Selvy

      I don’t know but her quick draw must be a sight to see

    • John M.

      Once, very early in the strip, Zed asked the same question. Sam said “If I show you, I’ll have to kill you!” …so I really don’t have the need to know…

  • Stephen J

    Took them down with a pistol. Damn fine shot.

    • John

      I envy a steady hand like that.
      In terms of hand cannons I just rely on the old 1911, rattle and all, just because I agree with Gen. Abrams “It’s a fine weapon for defending oneself in a crowded elevator.”

      • interventor

        I’m pretty good with a 1911, about 25 to 30 yards out. With a .380, ‘”close to you,” applies. VC approached our 2.5 ton, from behind. M60, froze. Colt 1911, didn’t.

  • Mike-SMO

    It doesn’t look like Sam’s chasis, baggy britches and all.

  • Mike-SMO

    ‘Sides the “Blue” looks like non-standard, perhaps laser or electronic. ‘Round here, “Blue” is training and/or special purpose. I have no idea about the border lands.

    • GWB

      Zed in front, carrying a blue semi-auto (they make some very nice ones nowadays, with colored frames), Sam’s hands reloading her revolver. (And, yes, she needs to move that muzzle a few more degrees to her left….)

    • MRAD

      I’m guessing it’s just the lighting that makes it look blue?

      My Artistic interpretation is it’s a a Glock 19 with a TLR7 or 8 on it. While I’m interpreting things, Sam has a S&W 681.

  • Wood

    Did Zed get shot in the tuchus? Or is he just wearing jeans that need to be burned? (Screw Levi’s)

    • Chris Muir

      Fixed!

  • Pamela

    Sam, does that include mirrors…

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      YGTBSM! Tell me that’s a satire.
      You HAVE to get new plates, “or else”?
      W-T-F!?

  • Buck Owens

    Grok – When was the last time you heard someone use that in a sentence? I can’t remember the first time…
    Welcome to side six – open your book and follow along with me as we learn our next 3 words in Turkish…Border.

  • Desert Lion

    Okay, all you muzzle discipline fanatics – yes, it’s important with a gun, and treat every gun as if it were loaded, etc. BUT LIGHTEN UP! When it’s in a safe condition, such as when the cylinder is open on a revolver and it’s in her hand or when it’s a semi-auto with the magazine removed and slide locked open, then it’s SAFE. If you want to critique something, pick on the fact she should have the revolver in her left hand with two center fingers around the cylinder and through the frame, loading the cartridge into the chamber with the right hand…

    Okay, fine – let the flames begin.

    • Sam

      Actually –

      There’s really not enough of the gun showing. It could be pointed at the ground between them. Can’t tell since we can’t see any of the barrel.

      Also, DL, that’s generally one of the recommended ways to hold it when doing a full dump and reload from speed loader, but she’s only replacing one round.

      Personally, I’ve never used that method. I keep the revolver in my right hand, hit the cylinder release with my right thumb, then flip the cylinder open with the fingers of my left hand reaching under the trigger guard, then tip the revolver up and hit the ejector rod with my left hand. Then I use the fingers of my right hand to keep the cylinder from turning while I replace the spent cartridges, either one or two at a time, or all at once from a speed loader. Then close it with my left hand and back in business. No switching the gun back and forth from hand to hand.

      And that’s sure to get some different flames beginning!
