.38 1-eighty

You know, now that I've had a few weeks to mull it over, I think I've changed my mind about giving a new woman shooter a .38 airweight revolver.

In fact, I now believe that a snubbie is the perfect gun for everyone. Young, old, male, female, newbie or experienced shooter, get yourself the lightest snubnose you can find and load it full of +P ammo. Easy to carry and that hand-numbing recoil makes you feel like you're really shooting. Oh, and while you're at it, make sure to leave off any laser sights so that range practice is that much more frustrating challenging. And for goodness sake, don't fiddle with that ridiculously heavy trigger pull...wouldn't want shooting to be fun or easy, right? Oh, heck - but why practice at all, really? Everyone knows that all self defense situations happen within 5 feet or less and you'll never hit anything further than that anyway.

However, I'm going to have to insist that all the snubbies be pink and purse-carried.

Just pink grips, or pink frames too? :)

I love my .38, but you'll paint its rosewood grips pink over my cold, dead body. This goes for my rosewood footstool, too.

Done and done!

What Breda wants, Breda gets.

Can my purse be called a 'tactical murse'? And can I call it the color 'light magenta' instead of pink?

This wouldn't be an elaborate hoax designed to mislead your readers in celebration of the first day of the first full month of Spring, would it?

I think John's the only one who checked his calendar... ;)

These aren't the droids you are looking for.

.38 is too big. The perfect man-stopper is the .32.

Please carry it unloaded so it doesn't up and shoot someone. 21 feet gives you plenty of time to load.

Bah, everyone knows all a woman really needs is a .32 snubby.
A .38 is just too much for them ;)

Mmm, I love a dose of sweet, sweet sarcasm in the morning. Just the right start to my day. Thank you!

Paul said...

Breda,

You are a wennie.

Man up... uh I mean..

Real women pack .500 and .460 Magnums. .38s are for toddlers. Real men carry a sawed off .600 Nitro Express revolver.

What? I thought you were teaching that Every Woman's First and only Gun needed to be a Pink Judge. Didn't you say all one had to do was to point it in the general direction of the Bad Guy and all those pellets would smite him like Thors Hammer? What gives?

SpeakerTweaker said...

Am I the only one who read the post title and saw ".38-180"?

Oooh, new caliber! Maybe they can put it in a snubbie. 180gr .38 caliber bullets. Kinda like a .357 Magnum Magnum.

Calendar? What calendar?

You invested your retirement money in ??? you are getting a killing commission at the gun shoppe? You don't like us anymore? Or it is the 1st of April all day today, and Breda is playing us.

Be sure to use multiplex ammo loaded with blue-dot powder.

You really need totally uncontrollable recoil, coupled with wild inaccuracy and a muzzleflash you can use to make photographs with.

I've recently concluded that .22LR should be just fine for personal defense for just about anybody.

Not that anyone NEEDS to carry a gun for personal defense: If the y do, they'll just end up shooting everybody in sight with armor-peircing cop killers from the big box o' bullets attached to their Glock assault pistols.

So, guys, I'm I not supposed to carry my pink snubby in my bright pink mod'ed shoulder holster over my heart?

And they're easy to catch when you drop 'em!

greg said...

Can't believe you are selling all those ladies short...why not get an 13oz .357...that way if the bullet misses, the flash can sear off the bad guys eye brows...very intimidating.

Wag said...

Hilarious!

RE your prior post which I just saw today, most guns sold to women are sold my men who have no clue how to sell them to women.

Yah.

Ignore those guys. (Works for their women.)
