My remedy for the blues, is a new handgun.

I've had the blues lately,,,
The deep-low-down and dirty kind,,,
The kind of blues that only a new gun can cure.

Ever since shooting my friend's new Bersa Thunder UC Pro 9mm pistol,,,
Those blues have been on me like hell-hounds on my trail,,,
So to cure them I took off to The Evil Pawn Shop,,,
Ordered me a 13 round Bersa Pro UC 9mm,,,
And two magazines in 10 and 13 round.

It took me a while to justify another handgun,,,
But it dawned on me that I didn't have a 10 rounder,,,
What if I traveled somewhere that didn't allow hi-cap mags?

I did the research and found out,,,
The 10 and 13 round models are identical,,,
The only difference is which magazine they ship with.

So if I ever decide to visit Colorado,,,
I can leave the puny 7 round LC9 at my home,,,
And travel the roads confident that I'm armed to the limit.

How's that for rational justification. :p

Feel free to use this with your significant other.

But seriously folk,,,
I did fire one a few weeks back,,,
I really liked the way that it felt in my hand.

The DA/SA action is perfect for me,,,
It's only a tiny amount bigger than my Thunder 380,,,
And it loads with 13 rounds of the much more potent 9mm cartridge.

It's been described as "chunky",,,
That's not the word I would use for it,,,
But the "hefty" feel did seem to tame the recoil.

I have heard it called the poor man's Sig-Sauer,,,
After shooting hers I say it more resembles a CZ-2075 RAMI BD.

This will be my first pistol with polygonal rifling,,,
Is the general consensus to not use lead bullets in it?,,,
Is there anything special I should know about its care and cleaning?

Anyways, the Evil Pawn Shop Guy called it in today,,,
So I'm looking at next Thursday but maybe Wednesday.

The $436.00 price he quoted me includes the sales tax,,,
That's a few dollars cheaper than Buds price,,,
There's no transfer fee, so I'm happy,,,
That's for the Duotone model.

Nice choice for chasing the blues away though you may find this method of treatment a bit expensive if you're sometimes prone to depression. I have also heard that a number of Bersa guns as being described as a poor man's Walther because some of their guns resemble the Walther PPK and P-88 designs.

Please post photos of your new remedy/gun when it comes in.

Anytime I need to justify a gun I usually end up trading it off. Yet when I buy a want or need gun I keep them.

My cure for the blues usually is just shooting of a box of ammo or going hunting.

Depression. Buying more guns. (Are you copying, NSA?)

Hello Hurryin' Hoosier:

Who said anything about depression?

~Sheesh~

I'm talking about The Blues,,,
The mood that makes you want to listen,,,
To old men sitting on wood porches playing twangy guitars.

Hello Bannockburn:

Poor man's Walther?,,,
I can easily see that description,,,
My Thunder pistol certainly has a Walther look.

You know that couldn't have been accidental.

Hello Huntsman:

You are taking me too literal my friend,,,
I'm a single man with no dependents except two cats,,,
The only justification I ever need to buy a gun is that I simply want to own it. ;)

I fired one of these at the range recently,,,
And I really liked how it performed,,,
Since I don't have a gun this size,,,
I decided to treat myself to one.

I bought the Duotone version,,,
I'll definitely post pics when it gets here.

Not sure about the need,,,,,,
The need you have,,,,,,,
To write simple statements,,,,,,,,
In this format that looks silly,,,,,,,,

It's much simpler to type coherent sentences with appropriate punctuation.

Congrats on the gun. I hope you like it.

But if it rhymes, or follows the format of a haiku, we are OK with it.

Yeah I guess........

LOL!!!! I didn't catch that part. Suddenly the gun poetry makes more sense to me. I'm in the same boat Aarond. Small town, no women here, no kids of my own, two cats at home, but a good job in my field, and a bunch of guns.......

Yes, my friends are concerned about me. If you write poetry about guns, THEY'LL KNOW man, and sooner or later the men in white coats will show up at your door to take you away.;)

As long as you have more guns than cats, there's no need to worry...you're fine.
