Dan took a picture of Mr. Colion Noir and me today. The image (not shown) proves that there are some people in this world who are genetically destined for public adulation (Colion Noir, Kirsten Joy Weiss) and some who aren’t (Dan Zimmerman and me). Colion’s stock continues to rise, as the garrulous gun guy prepares for the debut of his new panel-based talk show Noir. Before testing a carbon fiber Proof Research rifle barrel, Colion showed me the show’s “sizzle reel.” It reminded me of nothing so much as Top Gear‘s in-studio schmoozing, with plenty o’ pithy guest gun snark. In other words, it’s a hit! The program will run on the NRA’s website starting next month. Sometime after that, expect to see Mr. Noir on Fox. What does the Fox say? Colion’s not on their radar. Yet.
