handcuffs

Taofledermaus looks into it:

6:54 – A girl named Elizabeth at JC Penny hooked him up with the mannequin arms.  PLUG TALK🔌🔌🔌.

There is a lot of energy behind those slugs.  Typically in movies they shoot handcuffs off at close range with a handgun… typically when the person wearing them stretches them around a rock or a brick or something hard.  Out of curiosity I still wonder if that would work… but even if it did it would still be very dangerous due to the fact you’re trying to break metal apart at close range with something being fired at 1000+ ft/sec.

Free the guys.  Thoughts?

John Haughey over at OutdoorLife’s Blog has an interesting article on the SHOT show round up of Smith & Wesson lawbreakers.

The article is surprisingly sympathetic.  As you know from my post The Smith & Wesson indictment irony I hardly share John’s sympathy.

From my point of view, what happened at S&W was pure greed.  After a blockbuster year thanks to Obama, they still needed more money, and were willing breaking the law to get more of it.  Without personally knowing the inner workings of S&W, I can say with confidence that they have numerous lawyers, all of which would know better then to say bribery would be a good thing for the company.

I do agree with John on the ridiculousness of  the following:

“Let’s see, at $75,000 a year, it’s $6,250 a month per agent,” he calculates. “$6250 x 30 months = $187,500 per agent. $187,500 x 250 agents = $46,875,000 to arrest 22 people.”

Voila! That’s $46.875 million of your tax money to arrest 22 people, or more than $2.1 million each.

If FBI agents really do make $75k /year and all 250 of them were working solely on this sting, then that is a crazy amount of money.  It would definitely work out to much more than $2.1 million if you factored in expenses besides just their salaries.

I’ll take this opportunity to make the same joke as I did in my last post:

If you are sympathetic towards S&W, buy some handcuffs – HERE :P

Ironic that they are one of the top manufactures of handcuffs. :lol:


“This is one case where what happens in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas,” Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said at a news conference.

I bet he was saving that line up for a while :roll:
