Somebody give me a gun

 | 1 min

I mean that literally. My siblings and I all seem to share a fascination for weapons. There's nothing in our childhood that would suggest such a thing, but we all went out and bought airguns when we were teenagers. I had a Glock competition model and my sister had a Walther PPK. I forget exactly what my brother had, but it might have been a Smith and Wesson.

My brother's latest fascination is with swords and ninja gear (we think he may have watched a few too many episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a kid). He's got a samurai sword, and is set to get himself a rapier, dagger, throwing knives, throwing stars, nunchucks and a grappling hook.

My sister and I are much more into pirates than ninjas, so we quite fancy these pirate swords:

Of course, I think I should also have a nice little dagger as a backup, for when boarding an enemy ship from the water. So you can carry it between your teeth, you know?


However, what I really want is a gun. I'd love to have an old western style single action revolver like this Ruger Vaquero:


My preference is for a stainless/nickel finish with white pearl grips. Unfortunately, that requires a firearms licence and a handgun endorsement (not to mention some serious $) so I think I'll have to wait quite a while before I get my hands on one of those.

And just in case you think I'm secretly a psycho killer or something, I would like to point out that I have never actually seen or held a gun, sword or dagger before in my life. I just think weapons are cool.
