Revolvers ... yech!

I'm working on a war-story post (part faulty memory, part fiction, all bullshit all the time) which so far is outlined in four parts.  Yes, it's too long to read already, even without all the extra added editorial flourishes!   It may take me a while to get around to actually WRITING the damn thing!

So you'll have someone else to laugh at in the meantime, I'm posting a video made by a man who shares my disdain for Revolvers.  You remember Revolvers, don't you?  Great bud-vases, pretty good doorstops?  Yeah, them.

2 wounded in Georgia supermarket shooting | Fox News

2 wounded in Georgia supermarket shooting | Fox News: LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. –
(February 10, 2014)

 Two women were shot Monday inside a suburban Atlanta supermarket that was busy with customers trying to stock up before a winter storm that's widely predicted to hit the area, police said.

Lawrenceville police spokesman Greg Vaughn told local news outlets the shooting happened at a Kroger and that two people of interest were taken into custody. Vaughn said the shooting came after some sort of fight or argument but didn't have details.
"The scene is a little chaotic," Vaughn told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "You can probably imagine with everybody stocking up on bread and milk," he said. Several shoppers told WSB-TV that they hid in freezers while police cleared the store.

Georgia, huh?

They needed this Alabaman to shop there.  That would have resolved the problem before it became a problem.

Iraqi Bombers Bomb Selves; Unexpected Consequences Ensue

BBC News - Iraq militants 'killed by own bomb':
(February 10, 2014)

At least 21 insurgents have been killed in central Iraq after a car bomb was detonated accidentally, officials say. The explosion occurred in the early afternoon on a desert road, about 20km (12 miles) from the city of Samarra, security sources told the BBC. The explosives-filled vehicle was being escorted from the insurgents' compound to a main road when it blew up.

The expression "Hoist by his own petard" comes immediately to mind.
