Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Visual pun time.

What does this have to do with the stage portrayal of King Mongkut?

If he'd been carrying a British sub-gun I'd have said, "He's a Yule Bren-ner".

Somebody smarter or more culturally-literate than me is gonna have to get this one.

Nah, "Yule Bren-ner" was what I was looking for. I thought that the king of Siam would have made it obvious that I was referrying to Yul Brynner, but this took awhile for anyone to bite on.

Blackwing1 for the win! Well, sorta. ;)

That was deeply unfair . . . he had it, but he let it go, man!
(Blackwing, Sonny Crockett carried a Bren Ten. It was such a big deal that legend has it they had a problem with gun nuts hiding in the bushes to snatch up magazines dropped during filming.)

Dang!

I thought "Sonny" carried a stainless S&W Model 645 (4506? I never did figure out their numbering system[s]).

Guess I should have looked a little closer at the photo. Sorry for spoiling the contest, Mr. G.

At least I've got some connection to "Vice"; I carry my Springfield MicroCompact .45 in "Miami Classic" rig if I'm going to be in the truck a lot, or if my back starts to act up after carrying too long in the Don Hume IWB. Thanks to Don Johnson, it's a very comfy way to carry. The only problem is that I feel like a little bit of a Jackass (reference intended) when I carry that way.

It's still comfortable, though.

Sonny Crockett did carry a 645 for a couple of seasons in the middle of their run, but he had started with a Bren Ten, and is by far the most famous carrier of the pistol ever.

Just to contribute in no meaningful way, I give you this: http://fukung.net/v/8434/yul-brynner.gif

That link should be work safe. The rest of that site, not so much.

I thought, "Sonny Crockett/Don Johnson in a Christmas cap? Uh..."

Happy Holidays.
