    I have it on good authority that lust, when directed at a gun, is not one of the Seven Deadly Sins. That’s good because, after going to the pistol range twice this weekend, I’m just going to have to get a pistol to play with. And, right now, here’s the object of my lust.

    22 caliber revolvers are quite fun, I wish I had one. You have the shotgun for self defense, so a 22 is OK. Look at used S&W model 17s also, or if semiautos appeal Browning Buckmark pistols are excellent (except to clean).

    Oh, I love my Taurus! Did you know they manufacture everything in-house? Phenomenal standards and a great firearm! I wouldn’t trade my little Taurus, and hope to add to the collection soon. A .22 is always fun for plinking. Have you seen the .17? Those are fun, too.

    Thank you, also, for using the proper term. It is a pistol. I love you for that. 🙂 The term “handgun” (as opposed to, what, a “chingun” or the infamous “nostrilgun”?) makes my skin crawl- it was manufactured to create a certain feeling of enmity, and has done wonders in its work for the group in the middle who don’t know enough to know better.
