New from SAR Arms: SR-38 Revolver

2012 wasn’t exactly the Year Of The Revolver at this year’s Media Day At The Range, but we got our hands on a few wheelguns. Here’s RF busting a few caps with the Turkish-made SR-38 revolver. Despite its name, it’s chambered for .357 Magnum. And quite the pussycat it was too. Now that we’ve opened the Jamesons, there’s talk of .38s slipped into a .357 box, low-power .357s, etc. That’s just mean. The wheelgun comes in blued steel, available with a 2.5″, 4″ and 6″ barrel. Our range-day sample was blessed with a smooth trigger pull in single and double-action, although the sights seemed to be a bit out of adjustment. No prices have announced, but if it’s like any of the other Turkish delights served-up at the range, it will be a steal—as long as you don’t want to pay for pedigree.

…it trolls, in this case for legendary InterWebz antagonist JadeGold, who’s posted his last screed in the comments sections of TTAG as of today. The Truth About Guns was founded (as our founder RF so succinctly put it) to explore the ethics, morality, business, politics, culture, technology, practice, strategy, dangers and fun (yes fun) of guns. It was not created so a troll could hijack the discourse and spew fallacies, lies, vitrol, and a little hate thrown in for good measure.

The genesis of inventor Rick Prescott’s infrared seeking Sentinel (a.k.a. “Dilbert’s Revenge”) from the man himself, via makezine.com:

An idea sparked in my mind one day while walking the toy gun isle in a store with my kid and later that evening learning of the workings of a thermopile array while surfing the internet. The result is this infrared seeking sentinel which joins a realistically priced infrared sensor to a realistically operatable Nerf® machine gun to create a slightly less deadly yet still highly deterring automated machine. Personally I have grand plans to deploy the infrared seeking sentinel facing the entrance of my work cubical in order to speed interaction with less desirable visitors.

A Foggy Day in (Jeremy) London Town.

In other words, are you buying any of this? That kidnappers abducted actor Jeremy London after helping him change a tire in Palm Springs, California and forced him to do drugs. And now we learn—if that’s the right word—that his wife was in the car with him during the kidnapping. Well, part of it. “The story Melissa and Jeremy told police is that they had gone out to eat at the Jack-in-the-Box and come out to find a flat tire,” the Huffington Post reports. “Two men helped them change it, and Jeremy offered to give them a ride home. For some reason Melissa felt uncomfortable in the car, and the men allowed Jeremy to drop her at home before taking him on a ride of terror, forcing him to do drugs at gun point. Jeremy claims that the kidnappers told him, ‘Hit this! Hit this or I’m gonna kill you!’ while holding a gun to his head and forcing him to smoke some sort of drug.” London’s wife has some words for those of us who see this story as unmitigated BS . . .
