Doing my part to let the good feelings of National Firearms Appreciation Day last longer, I found this cutie calling my name today. A Smith&Wesson 352-1, seven shots of .22WMR, scanium and stainless steel, with a total empty weight of 11 ounces.

The fancy wood grips were left over from my S&W Model 60 upgrade project, and make this little .22 look more like a "grown-up" firearm. I have to admit that I'm a sucker for .22 and .45 caliber handguns, whether high-tech or traditional. This cutie would be perfectly understood 125 years ago, although the materials used would baffle scientists, much less ordinary shooters and gunsmiths. It's main duty will be to take care of four-legged vermin that are experienced in modern suburbs. As long as that cougar has moved on to better hunting grounds. :)

Local radio interviewed a pro-gun individual this morning (I was on my way home from work, and about half there-- not really listening). I'm pretty sure he said the purchase permit requirement is over. Later I looked up HB 5225 and found it is now law. It is written in legalese-- another thing we otta fix after the revolu restoration-- and I wonder whether you have experienced the practical application of it.

I have foregone buying handguns because I refuse to ask permission of the State to do so. Also, we have talked previously about how I own some things out of state and would have to get pewrmission to bring them home, and would rather leave them on free soil then go hat in hand to the masters.
