    Muzzle discipline girl!

    Aaand…did they just shoot down the Jo drone?

    • April 17, 2020 at 12:21 am

      I’m pretty sure that’s the plot.

    • April 17, 2020 at 12:54 am

      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.

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

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

        Man, pretty expensive prank!

    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!

    • April 17, 2020 at 12:38 am

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

  • April 17, 2020 at 12:48 am

    Called it… lol

  • April 17, 2020 at 1:03 am

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

    • April 17, 2020 at 7:06 am

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

      • April 17, 2020 at 1:21 pm

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

    What Jo, the Cylon, said.

  • April 17, 2020 at 1:08 am

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

  • April 17, 2020 at 3:16 am

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

    • April 17, 2020 at 4:02 am

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

        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.

      • April 17, 2020 at 11:49 am

        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..

        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.

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

        Or, you could try

        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.

        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.

    • April 17, 2020 at 8:12 am

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

        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”.

      • April 17, 2020 at 11:27 pm

        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.

      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…

    Took them down with a pistol. Damn fine shot.

    • April 17, 2020 at 2:21 pm

      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.”

      • April 17, 2020 at 11:31 pm

        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.

  • April 17, 2020 at 4:05 am

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

  • April 17, 2020 at 4:10 am

    ‘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.

    • April 17, 2020 at 7:04 am

      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….)

    • April 17, 2020 at 8:02 am

      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.

  • April 17, 2020 at 10:17 am

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

    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.

    • April 18, 2020 at 5:52 pm

      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!
