A 22 Caliber Hand Gun

My Valentine's Day musings seem, suddenly, to be a part of the distant past. On Tuesday night, my parents' home was broken into by a crazed man with a gun. He was seeking money from their caregiver, a friend of his. He fired the gun, hitting no one, fortunately, and then fled. The police are looking for him.


A 22 caliber hand gun can be purchased online with 53 dollars and an adult signature upon delivery.

The Sig Sauer P226 has, for many years been standard issue for US special forces.  


The very excellent Firearms Blog carry news that an upgrade has been issued.  The MK25: the standard P226 with the addition of a SIGLITE nightsight.

Blade Runner - Deckard's Gun

A bit of movie prop detective work.






  
  


The Blade Runner cult has grown over the years, and one of the most popular reproduction props is Deckard's blaster.  (The original was sold at auction in 2006 for a quarter of a million dollars.)  


Plenty of resin kits (like the one pictured above) are available, but what if you wanted to make an exact reproduction?  What components were used in the original gun?  The prop was obviously a working fire-arm dressed with a few futuristic additions, but which real-world gun had been used during construction?


Uber-geek Phil Steinschneider spent ten months solving the mystery.  The double-trigger is clearly from a Steyr Mannlicher SL rifle, as is the upper receiver and bolt.  



However these additions appear to have been welded to a snub-nosed pistol.  After much research, Steinschneider identified the weapon.  




Beneath all the sci-fi dressing, Deckard's blaster is a Charter Arms .44 Police Bulldog.  So, thanks to Phil, Blade Runner nuts can now build a fully authentic Deckard gun, assured they are using the correct components.

When the cops say "drop the gun", it's a good idea to drop the gun

I'm guessing you've heard about the 15 year old kid in Brownsville, Texas who was shot and killed by police for brandishing and refusing to put down when ordered, what turned out to be a pellet gun similar to the one pictured. 

Were the police justified? I say yes. After Columbine and Va. Tech, you don't bring any kind of weapon to a school. And, when cops tell you to do something, you'd better do it or you risk getting shot.
