Caracal Held Hostage: Day 132


A couple of days ago, I got a sudden itch to take my Caracal C to the range. As Richard Nixon remarked when one of his advisors suggested killing a member of his enemies list, “We could do that but it would be wrong.” Late last year, Caracal told owners that their gun could discharge if dropped. A quick call to the Quick Sights folk uncovered some good news: 450 drop-safe guns have hit the States. They’re testing the World’s Most Sublime Trigger Pull™ (the trigger bar assembly created the negligent discharge potential) and discovering which models the Arabs sent their American cousins. When, dear Lord, when? “By mid-March,” the rep promised. As football commentator George Hamilton remarked during the Ireland v. Romania shootout at the 1990 European Championships, “The nation holds its breath.”
