Much to the Chagrin of Some...
« on: December 15, 2015, 03:29:13 PM »
...I like shotguns.

I also like revolvers, rifles, carbines, and pistols.  I always get a kick out of reading the "best" of any of them.

So here we have the Best 5 Concealed Carry Revolvers (I do have to agree with the Ruger SP101): http://www.ammoland.com/2012/10/best-concealed-carry-revolvers/?utm_source=Ammoland+Subscribers&utm_campaign=bd2f231f94-Monday_Morning_Email&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_6f6fac3eaa-bd2f231f94-20763529#axzz3uQl5ev6s

But, wait until you waste good reading time to read about the Best Concealed Carry Handgun: http://www.ammoland.com/2014/10/best-concealed-carry-handgun-2/#axzz3uQl5ev6s, which never really answers the question.

Imagine reading articles in the days of yore; "The Top 5 Double-Headed Axes - Don't Cleave Home Without One?" or "The Counter-Offensive Sword, Roman or Samurai?" and the ever popular, "Be An Ace With A  Mace!"  The "Greatest Hits of the Ninja" was widely read by Samurai warriors. "The Irish Dirty Dirk and What's Up Your Sleeve? is as popular today as in the days of William Wallace.

I have to cut back on the coffee!

 
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Naw...this is just getting good!

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

"He was asked what he thought about the fight, but Goliath was too stoned to answer the question" - period news reporter.

When the Cro-Magnon wife was asked where her husband was she responded, "He's out clubbing with his buddies!"

"The Top Five Stones for Concealed Carry!" - an article written by Abel

"Brother, can you spear imam?" - A song released by the rock group "The Crusaders" and later released by the pop singer "Tom Stones."

"Killing Me Softly With His Swords." - lyrical part of the song "Killing Me Softly" - by Roberta Axe.

"Straight To The Heart" - A medieval theme song made famous by Archer Butts (you may have to read some medieval weapons history to get this one).

"You Send Me." - A tribute song to the French swinger, Trebuchet!

"Wonderful!", the cave lady exclaimed after seeing her mate slay a Saber-Toothed Tiger with a stone axe. "Don't encourage him!", said another. "It will only make him boulder!"

"Call me in your spear time!" - Alleged comment from King Leonidas to the Persian "god-King" Xerxes.

What has 40 legs and seven teeth? The front row at a STONES concert. (as observed by Keith Richards -  who lived in the 16th Century).

Flaming arrows are best seen in the NOCKturnal hours.

The Frenchman could fence, but he was eventually foiled.

Please, spear me from having to write this stuff anymore!

A rock! A rock! My kingdom for a rock! It is but away buy a stone's throw!

William Tell? His friends considered him a straight arrow and one you should not shaft.

...But, what did William Tell?
And, to whom?


The only smile-like response I can offer, for your extended attempt at being punny, is...wait for it...that chagrin you mention.
Or, were we playing cards, a...um...grim ace.

William could not play poker.....He had a Tell!

I now yield my sword. The play is over, and I exit stage left.
