“A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on.” – John F. Kennedy

Fortunately for us, some ideas do not live on. For example, the Marquis Nazi Belt Buckle Pistol invented during World War I and (nearly) fielded ‘en masse’ during World War II.

The Marquis Belt Buckle pistol, also known informally as the Power Pelvis Gun, was conceived by Louis Marquis while interned in a POW camp during World War I. Frustrated by long chow and loo lines, Marquis was consumed by a desire to exert his authority over other POW’s without drawing the attention of guards…

Where the magic happens…

There’s been a flurry of posts from other gun bloggers in response to an inquiry launched by Romeo Tango Bravo and my mysterious web buddy at GunMart. And no, it’s not a bro-mance. We’re just friends, although we’ve never met.

The basic question was, “where do you do your gun blogging from and what environment drives all those creative and radical posts?

Some of the other bloggers office environments that I’ve seen include:

I’ve stayed out of this contest mainly because I didn’t want to stir up a lot of envy among the Gun Blogger community. You see, I like to live the moment when I’m writing, so I do most of my work from my M16 Half Track. It’s open and spacious, and has plenty of guns.

Sometimes though, I get the writers block thing and have to move to my alternate digs. Usually I like to stand in the turret of my Sherman tank. It makes me feel invincible in my writing.

I would like to thank my new buddy David from the Historical Cadet Corps for lending me office space. David is my new best friend mainly cause he’s a nice guy (of course), but also because he has an M16 Half Track for us to play with.

Life working at a Gun Range…

From Shelley at Gun Nuts Media…

User Malfunction:

Here are some common reasons people ask range staff to fix their guns (or other miscellaneous range items), and what the range staff is actually thinking when they do:

‘It’s shooting low and left, I need to adjust my sights.’
No you don’t.  You need to stop slapping the trigger and flinching at every shot.  Here’s a .22.

‘It’s all over the paper, your ammo sucks.’
No it doesn’t.  The factory Winchester I just sold you is fine.  If you had listened to the range officer that just recommended you not use teacup Hollywood weaver while leaning backwards and rapid firing ‘the ammo’ would be a lot more accurate.

‘The gun is jamming a lot, you need to clean your disgusting rental guns.’
No I don’t.  I do that every week.  You need to stop limp-wristing my rental gun so the slide can cycle correctly.  Here’s a .22.

‘The rifle is hitting low, your scope is way off.’
No it’s not.  Stop trying to shoot a .223 with a scope at a 10 yard target.  Move your target out to 25 yards and it will hit spot on.

‘The rifle is hitting high, your scope is way off.’
#@$*%& I wish people would stop adjusting the sights on the rental guns!

‘Your gun bit me, now I’m bleeding.’
Gee, you mean you received slide bite from wrapping your support thumb behind the beaver tale like I just told you not to?

‘I’ve put 50 rounds through my 1911 to break it in and it’s still jamming.  You sold me a bad gun!’
No we didn’t.  Shoot it more.  If you didn’t have the patience to wait for the tolerances to loosen up a bit you should have bought a polymer gun.

‘I can’t hit a T2, I need a larger target.’
No you don’t.  Shoot your target at 3 yards instead of 10.  Here’s a .22.

‘I’ve put 300 rounds through my Taurus and it’s always runs fine!  You’re just telling people to try the SW M&P because it costs more!’
First of all, stop putting SW before M&P, either just say Smith & Wesson or assume I work at a gun range and know what an M&P is.  Second of all… No, forget it, I’m not talking to you anymore.

Smith and Wesson Announces Bodyguard – Jersey Shore Edition

Jersey Shore Fighting

Jersey Shore Bodyguard in Action

Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (SWHC, Nasdaq) today announced an extension to it’s new Bodyguard line of personal protection pistols, the Jersey Shore Edition.

Aimed squarely at the post binge-drinking, out of control situation market segment, the Bodyguard Jersey Shore line offers several innovative features designed to offer ego and hairstyle protection, while minimizing regrets the day after.

According to Smith & Wesson CEO Ben Cartwright, the Bodyguard Jersey Shore is designed to protect reputation, ego, and lucrative television contracts without permanent physical harm. “Say you’re at the club, at like 3:30am, and some juicehead gorilla wants to smoosh with you. But you’re like, forget that, I just got my nails done and my spray tan hasn’t fully dried yet. The Bodyguard Jersey Shore is the perfect solution. It allows you to ward off unwanted advances at the clubs without physical harm, so the next day, when your tan is dry, you can hook up with that juicehead with no hard feelings.”

Smith & Wesson spokespeople declined to offer details on exactly how the Bodyguard Jersey Shore works, but industry insiders speculate that the technology relies on remote steroid neutralization. “If you can make the guys abs look really lame, you have the power and respect” stated J-Woww, an early adopter of the Bodyguard Jersey Shore Edition system. “It’s like ‘I own you now guido!’ One more move and I’ll show the whole club that you’re a skank with no abs.”

Ruger Announces Common Stock and Light Origami Pistol Repurchase Program

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR), announced the third quarter 2010 repurchase of 412,000 shares of common stock and 4 Light Origami Pistols (LOPs). Reportedly, the total repurchase program was valued at $5,700,000.84 with $5.7 million allocated to common stock and $0.84 allocated to the repurchase of the LOP Pistols.

According to Ben Cartwright, Chief Executive Officer, “We’re always looking at aggressive ways to increase shareholder value. Since the company is doing so well, we decided it was time to embark on an aggressive stock repurchase program.”

Asked about the rationale behind the Light Origami Pistol Program, Cartwright explained “It occurred to us that stockholders should not be the only ones to benefit from repurchase programs. Why not do something for collectors as well?”

Ruger’s strategy is to buy pistols back from the public in order to decrease supply and availability – thereby driving up prices for collectors. While innovative, the strategy has yet to be proven in the market.

Ruger’s Chief Financial Officer Gordon Gecko explained the new strategy during the recent third quarter analyst briefing call. “Right now, there are about 5 Light Origami Pistols out there in the market, so it’s not really a collectible. They’re only selling for about $0.21 each given the state of the economy. We thought that if we could buy back 4 of them, then maybe that 5th one would really increase in value.”

Surefire Announces LED Flash Light Saber

Designed to appeal to a trans-universal audience, the new series offers unprecedented power from common AA household batteries.

Early adopter and product beta tester, Han Solo explains. “This thing totally rocks. Thankfully the device is only offered for sale to law enforcement. If Boba Fett gets his hands on one of these, I’m toast.”

The revolutionary device offers new levels of power and durability. Power of the new personal defense light has been upgraded from 120 lumens all the way up to 1.9873 x 1023 lumens with the flash light saber, while durability has also been improved. The new unit is able to easily withstand the massive G-forces of hyper-warp deceleration, making it the perfect intergalactic cruiser accessory.

Surefire CEO, Ben Cartwright, also announced new training program offerings for the powerful device. “Having a combination Flash Light / Light Saber is pretty handy. For example, the other night I dropped my car keys in a dark parking lot. Fortunately I had my new Flash Light Saber. I easily found the keys in the dark, but managed to slice my car door off in the process. So training is an important part of our new offering.”
