So I pick up a used semi-auto pistol today at a show and the ser# was like 000666.
so now I am thinking I am doomed. Should I get rid of it or keep it?

No, I don't think so but if you had owned it before they changed the highway name of Nevada 666 and shot at the sign on Haloween, well....

The number 666 is referenced in the Book of Revelation and refers to a numbered mark of the beast to be placed on your hand or forehead in order to buy goods. I don't think you'd be damned to keep it, but personally, I like to avoid keeping that number sequence around just to be free of any evil associations.

The only appropriate name for that gun is "The Beast."

Somebody else had a AK with 666 in the serial # on here. I think the general concenus was to sell it on Gun Broker with the ser# as a highlight. I have a horse trailer with a Manufacturing date of 7/7/77 think it will be lucky?

Learn to shoot it upside down as "999".

Funny thing with the serial # on the frame running up and down I was thinking it maybe 999 but alas it is on the slide plain as day 666.

Saw 666 coming when I saw the thread title. :evil:

Reminds me about going up to a Pastor after church and saying "that was one helluva sermon!"

The pistol of the beast is fine. Sometimes a number is just a number, and any evil that is reflected from that gun comes from the heart of the man shooting it, not an inert object incapable of moral action.

I am closing this one before a religious debate starts , not because of any existing comments!
