When is a gun more than just a gun?

Just metal and wood?

Xavier doesn't think so.


Nothing like a good cry first thing in the morning. It cleanses the soul.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who started the day that way. I have my GreatUncle's Police Positive in .32 caliber. This brought back memories.

I got goosebumps reading that story.

My favorite gun is a Colt Vest Pocket .25 auto. Not for shooting... but my grandfather bought it when he graduated from Northwestern in 1927 before moving to Seattle. I guess back then people still figured you needed a shooting iron if you were Going West.

It's still in the original box, too. And even though I don't shoot it, I do enjoy taking it down and reassembling it - it's a little jewel. So even though my grandfather's choice of caliber was suspect, at least he got himself a JMB gun.

Too bad he didn't go for a 1911, though...

when you link to something, I always know it will be worth chasing. This was lovely. Thanks.
