  • Frontier six shooter, the double-action army, an 1878 Colt


    People often show me their guns. I like that. Guns are different and interesting.
    At a meeting last week, Ray and Nate brought in two old guns for me to check out. Both these guns have loops attached to the butts. Weird.
    Looking closer, I see the prancing horse on a grip.
    “It’s a Colt.”

  • The Glock 43 or the Glock 43X?


    “What if,” I ask Joe, “What if the good gun fairy popped her magic wand and said that you could get a Glock 43X instead of your Glock 43?”
    “I don’t have a Glock 43,” he replies.
    “Well then, what if you did have a Glock 43? Would you keep it or would you take that 43X?”
    “I’d keep the 43,” he answers without giving the question much consideration.
