    Women in Austria are major customers for double barrel shotguns and new triple barrel model because of the rapefugees.

      I’m not sure what you mean by “new triple barrel model”, but perhaps what they’re wanting is a nice “Drilling”. 😉 It would give them the ability to handle both “local calls” and “long distance”.

      • February 17, 2016 at 12:43 pm

        Quite familiar with 3 and four barrel Drilling. Like I stated 3 barrel shotguns.

        I figured you meant Drillings, but was curious about your inclusion of “new” in the description, since they’ve been around quite a while. Mostly, though, I was simply making a joke around the double-entendre, hence the emoticon. I apologize for the offense; it was unintentional.

        Chiappa Firearms (Italy) makes a triple barrel shotgun now – not sure how practical it is compared to the ubiquitous Mossberg 500 series, but it’s pretty cool. Drillings are neat, but IIRC you need paperwork in Austria to buy pistols or rifles, but shotguns not so much. So the more traditional “Bock-doppelbusch” (sp?) might be harder to come by.

      • February 17, 2016 at 10:44 pm

        That’s why the 3 barrel model has gained popularity.

      I’ve never known a good Austrian girl to pass up a good Drilling. By the way the three barreled gun/rifle is very common in Germany/Austria. Typically it is two 12’s over a 9 x 57 but two 7mm rifles over a 20 ga are also known. Very intricate work. if you ever go to a double gun meet like the Southern at Deep River this April you will typically see the German Gun Collectors association there. Lots of Drillings to examine.

      The reason for the Drilling is the topography and the forests of the AO. It is not uncommon to go bird hunting and run across a Bambi or Piglet that needs to be ahem, dispatched for lunch of dinner.

      It is also not uncommon to see a s x s with a gun and rifle as the barrels. Looks odd but is equally effective.

    Looks like Jan and Sam have both. Just different applications.

    And it would STILL be instructional to find out where and how Sam hides that bulky wheelgun in those skin tight jeans.

      The advantage of being able to “draw” reality. Obviously she has a pocket universe available or teleportation powers.

    • February 17, 2016 at 12:51 pm

      Depending on the outfit she’s wearing, she has the option to conceal a lot of high caliber firepower “under the guns,” only she would have to wear a bra… #};?(
      This cute shooter is packing a much smaller piece, but she’s equipped for a larger one, if she feels the need…

      I am continually amazed how many old hard-core SF geeks are in here! RAH was always a favorite, mostly for his extremely well thought out Libertarian societies. As those famous ‘Two Thessalonians’ explain in 3:6-8 RAH (and others) have been right all along. TANSTAAFL!

      Minerva was a computer a/k/a artificial intelligence. She wasn’t a ‘person’.

      • February 17, 2016 at 11:42 pm

        After the events of “Number of the Beast” and “To Sail Beyond the Sunset”, Minerva was “downloaded’ into a body custom-grown for her by Ishtar. She ended up looking enough like Laz-Lor to be their sister. Triplets instead of twins.

    A final note yestiddy just gotta be replied to:

    Saying all Muslims are terrorists is wrong and bigoted. What about the Muslims and acted like a human shield for Christians threatened by rebels, or those who raised money for flood victims and donated water to people in Flint, MI? You can’t blame the religion as a whole for the actions for a few.

    NO ONE said all muslims are terrorists. BUT!! The muslims/morlocks THEMSELVES when asked in polls… have very high percentages of them approving violence against the West.

    That is their own statement. And secondly — most importantly — it is not a “few”. It is tens of MILLIONS who favor violence. DYODD.

    Like we useta say:

    There It Is.

      As you said, not all Quanderthals are terrorists / jihadist. But all jihadists (terrorists) are Quanderthals.
      Between that little fact and the other facts you stated above, yes, need to declare Islam a political entity instead of a religion, and block ANY further importation of peoples, influence (CAIR, et al), or money (to build mosques, Wahabbi madras).

    All Muslims aren’t terrorist but most terrorist are Muslim. All psychopaths aren’t cold blooded serial killers but all serial killers are psychopaths. All left wing Democrats aren’t gun grabbers, but all gun grabbers are left wing Democrats

    If you put your mouse pointer over Jan you will see a message.

      Safety in all things needs to be practiced. Try explaining how things got hurt at the hospital with a misstep. Believe me once is enough, especially when the Medicos start snickering.

      Though it looks like the tilt-a-whirl in going a a steady clip.

    • February 17, 2016 at 9:39 pm

      Actually, if you put your mouse pointer over any part of the cartoon, not just Jan.

  • February 17, 2016 at 6:28 pm

    Well, I know this is a little off-topic, but I saw shrillary running her yap again on the news about what women want, i.e. equal pay for the work they do, and I really wanted to slap her silly until she learns to shut her effing yap.
    I have ALWAYS been paid the same as any man I worked with. If I wasn’t paid the same, I didn’t take the job. Period.
    Aside from that, a good solid can of wasp spray is just as effective as a handgun, and gives you time to stomp your attacker flat. And yes, I’m in a foul m—-d after watching that clueless wartsow run off at the mouth.
    Forgive me. I just had to get it off my ….

    • February 17, 2016 at 7:09 pm

      I keep a can at the front an back door. Never know when dangerous two-legged wasps need a good dowsing of a nerve agent.
      Drops them right quick.

    • February 17, 2016 at 8:11 pm

      “Aside from that, a good solid can of wasp spray is just as effective as a handgun”

      No way. Unable to “fly” is good. Dead is better. And for that you need a 38 Special, a Judge, a .45, a 9mm (at a minimum), a 12 gauge, a 10 gauge, a .380 — you get the idea. Forget the spray can unless you plan to shoot after you spray.

      • February 17, 2016 at 10:19 pm

        You’re wrong. I’ve sold firearms for almost forty years, and one of the first and most important things I tell customers is that personal defense does not always mean deadly defense. There are many -most actually- conflict situations where non-lethal means like pepper spray -or wasp spray, same effect- will disable an aggressor sufficiently to allow you to escape the threat, without taking a life and turning your own upside down.

        Make no mistake, when you believe your own life is at risk or there is no escape, well your gun is the great equalizer, that’s what it’s for and you have to have the mindset and be prepared to use it if you have to. But you *don’t* have to in 99.9% of conflict situations.
