Why didn’t the guns protect themselves? All the bad guns are always going on shooting rampages and killing dozens — why can’t the good ones stand up for themselves?

I didn’t even know that Pinkerton’s was still around. They were really good during the 1800-early 1900’s and they are now relegated to getting their firearms stolen. tsk tsk

I think it was an inside job. I forget which brand is notorious for going off all by themselves?

Oh, then they’re probably all together at a bar having a couple after work. Nothing to see here, move along.

...and eight .38-caliber revolvers.

Now they can replace them with REAL handguns.

That's for real cops. The "Security Guards" have to hit the Yon Kwon Doughnut Shop, in Upper Darby. Somewhat farhter away, but likely in the direction that many of them live)

Or inside the box of donuts next to the coffee maker.

I hate it when I get powdered sugar in the barrel. Don’t get me started on cream filled.

Well, I'm sure either Yon OR Kwon have better donuts than Dunkin.

You know, with all these Leo’s and similar types losing their guns, maybe they shouldn’t be allowed to have them anymore.

Maybe the law-abiding citizens should only have guns, after all most large massacres are at the hands of government.

McGivern was an exhibition shooter with downloaded .38 cartridges. Probably the best double action shooter that ever lived. For defensive work all LEO's have given up the low powered, low capacity .38 - just like these guys have done now! So, I don't think McGivern would disagree with my statement at all.

Yea but it might be hard for westerners to get past the nước mắm or aek jeot, sauce they drizzle on 'em. Or the Kim Chi filling.

I don’t know what any of that stuff is but it could be fried panda penis and it’d still beat Dunkin.

Maybe, but it's rotted/fermented fish sauce, except for the Khim Chi which is basically slightly fermented cabbage, sort of like sauerkraut, only they often mix in some of the fish sauce.

Compared to that, fried panda penis sounds pretty good, excpet they'd probably put the sauce on that too. The fish sauce might not taste too bad, but I can't get past the smell.
