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.
