This is obviously not a trick I get a lot of practice with. ;)

AFAIK, JMB (pbuh) was a devout Mormon and never used the lanyard loop for that.
Although I suppose he might have had an undocumented taste for sarsaparilla.
Ass-you-me'ing that sarsaparilla is uncaffeinated.

WV: porkers. Without which, there would be no bacon. Heaven forfend!

OK, now let's see it done with support hand this time.

Oh great! Now I have to go try this with a Model 1902 Military Automatic Colt in .38! Let you know how it goes! Only thing I have with a lanyard loop! Should make entertaining guests more interesting!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

You young kids, the lanyard loop in my Model 1909 won't do that! :-)

Keads said...

@Dirt, LOL!

Only thing I've got with a lanyard loop is a C96. Gonna take a while to figure THAT out.

And that just prompted a nice wiki-wander to the original href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crown_cork">Crown cork and it's somewhat amazing href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Painter_(inventor)">inventor.

I don't think it would be to dramatic of a statement to say the bottle cap was one of the more important inventions in history. :)

Good to see you practising for that job interview with the local constabulary.

The advanced course requires you to do it with the metal end of a seat belt, while underway in the vehicle.

Hint: steer vehicle with knees while performing.

Anon 6:04,

I think that IMPD would have preferred me to use a loaded firearm which, once I'd used it to open a six pack or so, I then used to menace someone.

AFAIK, Moxie soda is caffeine-free, as is ginger ale; JMB might've enjoyed either. (We need an LDS cultural historian!)

...You guys have now seen the famous Roseholme Cottage kitchen, y'know.

Works great but the bottle is challenging to carry concealed.`

Tango Juliet said...

And I, for one, am impressed, Bobbi.

[creepy stalker] More than that, we've seen her hands. WE'VE SEEN HER HANDS!!!!!![/creepy stalker]

WV:"clograni"...what happens when grani doesn't take her Metamucil.

Wouldn't I, as a Mainer and a 1911 fan be pleased if JMB drank Moxie.

Also you can do that with the barrel and dust cover on most small pistols a-la Walther PP, and the Russian Makarov, when you lock the slide back.

JMB might have drunk Moxie, but I rather doubt he enjoyed it.

The video isn't working for me from this page. I can see it fine on your facebook page, though. The URL on your blog is showing "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=&feature=player_embedded" so it's apparently missing the video id tag thingy (v=???)

Tam said...

It's stopped working on this end, too.

Perhaps Blogger's vidjo hosting is wonky?

I like Moxie!

Tam said...

I like Moxie, too, but it's definitely better sipped than slammed.

Joseph said...

See, I think Moxie tastes like someone was sitting on their porch with cup full of soda water, chain smoking, and kept extinguishing the cigs in the water, got thirsty, drank it, and decided, "Hey, that's gross, lets bottle it."

HerrBGone said...

I like Moxie too. In fact the bottle I have right here in hand lists caffeine as the next to last ingredient.

WV: "flisesh" That's the sound most folks make if you're expecting diet Pepsi and someone hands you Moxie instead.
