It's critical, in this age of the impending oblations, to be prepared and well-armed. With this in mind I recently visited a few local gun shops to look for a new pistol. The clear favourite as always was the 1911 .45 ACP. A wonderful style perfectly designed to bring down savage hoodies, hippies, and Bolsheviks from 30 paces. The shops were crowded. I met one of the store owners. He told us interest in handguns has skyrocketed in recent years and they can barely meet demand. What caught my attention was that the customers in each store were all of European descent, attractive and clean-cut, with a large percentage with blond hair and blue eyes, like me. There were also a few hotties in attendance. Clearly I'm not the only one thinking along these lines.
