Stormbringer is quickly becoming one of my favorite military badass, tactical, gun-nut sites (along with The Things Worth Believing In, and Cop the Truth), and has a great post on why Harry Potter should have carried an M1911.
Worried about its Medusa-gaze? Wear night vision goggles. The image is light-amplified and re-transmitted to your eyes. You aren't looking at it - you're looking at a picture of it.
Imagine how epic the first movie would be if Harry had put a breaching charge on the bathroom wall, flash-banged the hole, and then went in wearing NVGs and a Kevlar-weave stab-vest, carrying a SPAS-12.
Remember: gun-control means that Voldemort wins. God made wizards and God made muggles, but Samuel Colt made them equal.
If, like me, you appreciate this type of humor, then you’ll appreciate this site, too. And you probably understand why my wife rolls her eyes at me when I bring it up!
