YouTube won’t let me embed these videos, so here is the link to the playlist:

Fresh Prince Of Bel Air – Bullets Over Bel Air

  • Will gets shot at around 5:24
  • Carlton gets yelled at for not wanting to put up with bullshit from criminals at around 9:50
  • Carlton comes back for some more, from will this time at 5:10 (in the 2nd part)

Moral of the story: The police will protect us.  The legal system works.  There is no reason a regular person should need a gun. :roll:

Classic California right there…

Will’s crying was a nice touch too. hahah

YAWN…

Someone tell me why I should care about these? They look like a Sigma crossed with a M&P.  Interesting how S&W chose not to design these with removable backstraps.

Maybe the “Self Defense Trigger” (SDT) is the selling point?   Who knows … anything would be an improvement on that scratchy mushy M&P trigger.  The design of this “new” trigger looks the same with the joint right in the middle, so I’m not holding my breath in anticipation of it being awesome.  I’ll hold further judgment until I try it out someday though.

The price is predictable … both have an MSRP of $530

Thanks but no thanks… For now I’ll be sticking with Glock to fulfill my polymer pistol needs.

In my Money, Guns, Art – Scott Campbell post I mentioned how I have a weakness for weapon related art, and how I love the smell of money.

London artist Justine Smith creates some sculptures using U.S. $1 bills that I would love to hang on my wall:

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:
