    I was browsing GunBroker for a cheap and reliable .22 revolver and I came across what has to be one of the most interesting descriptions I've ever read of a gun. After reading up on just how bad these RG revolvers really are, I understand where the seller is at least being honest about what he is selling, but you'd think if he really felt that poorly about it, he'd just destroy the thing and eat the cost.

    And the minimum bid is $150. Until I saw that, I was going to suggest someone here bid $1 and deep six the poor little thing.

    I've never heard of R.G. Industries but I sure do know about Hinckley's assassination attempt (and infatuation with Jodie Foster).

    That said, we of the gun community are preaching to others to not blame the gun for the actions of an individual. What say we don't do it here either.

    This gun may well be a POS...don't know..but it's still just steel, wood and maybe some plastic.

    But Animal Mother is right...that's a hell of a description.

    Glockman, how we feel about it isn't a function of what that model of firearm was used to do on a specific occasion in the past. If so, I wouldn't own a lot of guns I own. It's more a matter of how we feel about "junk" guns as a safety and aesthetics thing. To us, it's a sort of eyesore and attractive nuisance, much like the tumbledown trailor in the vacant lot down the road.

    But does serve as a reminder to those who doubt: the .22LR can cause some serious mayhem. Ideally, when used by a defender.

    I don't think anyone died, but as a result of the shooting, the Brady campaign was formed.
