Coonan makes a .357 semi-automatic pistol. TTAG has been angling for a testing and evaluation model for the last two years; receiving repeated assurances that the check—I mean, pistol is in the mail. We’ll give it another SHOT in January. Meanwhile, the Minnesota manufacturer is moving into munitions. Coonan’s just-in-time for Christmas Vampire Stake contains eight silver bullets. Well, eight lead bullets within silver cartridge cases. I appreciate the Werewolf connection. As the son of a Transylvanian, I get how Coonan is raising the stakes for vampire apotropaics. But what do silver-cased bullets packaged in a prop pencil have to do with Zombies—other than [yet another] shark-jumped marketing ploy? Oh wait. That’s it. All yours for $39.95 plus S&H. You know, sometimes I wish it was apocalypse now. Just sayin’ . . .
