Ivan’s Site of the Week

This week’s winner is The James Bond Dossier - all you need to know about what makes Bond Bond, and where to buy it.

Girls, if you’re still not sure what to get the man in your life for Christmas, well, chances are you’ll find something here to earn you the ultimate accolade – the unsolicited back-rub. Happy hunting…


The Smith & Wesson Hammerless Centennial Airweight .38, yesterday – as used by our James in Dr No. Hint hint.

Well, I was looking for what most interests a man these days -- you know, getting a date with Bond girl Eunice Gayson, things like that. Turns out she's well over 60; never been keen on dating my mom's generation, me. I'd much rather prefer a confidential secretary like Alotta Fagina. But that wasn't on offer at your website, Ivan. I suspect it's a website designed for geeks who also go to X-Men conventions and such.

You say that like it's a bad thing, Des...

Oops, sorry... Mine was a drunken comment last night. X-Men conventions are all good. I just remembered that the pharmacist's son in Family Guy, Goldman Jr. (is it Neal? Neil?) once went to one.

The Smith & Wesson is really cool, though. That's what's gonna protect my home, when I have one. A house and a gun, I mean.

Ivan the Terrible said...

And someone to protect, while you're at it, Des. Tho' if it's Alotta Fagina, you're going to need a bigger gun.

Sweet piece. D'you really prefer a hammerless though Ivan? Bit of a ladies gun...

Ivan the Terrible said...

You wouldn't be Major Rob Boothroyd, would you, Rob?

Hammerless is apparently the pistol of choice as a back-up piece among the law enforcement community, as it is less likely to snag on clothing when drawn in haste from an ankle holster. One assumes these chaps know their guns...

Ivan, you don't want the .38, though. Stick with a minimum of 9mm, silver tipped hollowpoints. Yes, you want to kill an attacker, but you want to knock him on his ass, too, so that he doesn't keep coming at you.

BTW, here in the Hinterland, in addition to the aforementioned 9mm, a good 12 gauge, works as well.

Cheers.

I've always found that an accurate bodyline googly thrown with one of my homebaked bread rolls stops an attacker dead in his tracks. Plus, you can eat the murder weapon afterwards. Very good with strong cheese, they are.

This is an advantage not to be found with any of James Bond's favoured pieces and especially not the Walther PPK which I am told is tough and requires long stewing before it becomes in any way palatable.
