    "In the beginning was the 1911, and the 1911 was the pistol, and it was good. And behold the Lord said, thou shalt not muck with my disciple John's design for it is good and it worketh. For John made the 1911, and lo all of his weapons, from the designs which I, the Lord, gave him upon the mountain.

    And shouldst thou muck with it and hang all manner of foul implements upon it, and profane its internal parts, thou shalt surely fail and have malfunctions, and in the midst of battle thou shalt surely come to harm.

    And as the ages passed, men in their ignorance and arrogance didst forget the word of the Lord and began to profane the 1911. The tribe of the gamesman did place recoil spring guides and extended slide releases upon the 1911, and their metalsmiths didst tighten the tolerances and alter parts to their liking, their clarity of mind being clouded by lust.

    The artisans did hang all manner of foul implements upon the 1911 and did so alter it that it became impractical to purchase. For lo, the artisans did charge a great tax upon the purchasers of the 1911 so that the lowly field worker could not afford one. And the profaning of the internal parts didst render it unworkable when the dust of the land fell upon it. And lo, they did install adjustable sights, which are an abomination unto the Lord, for they doth break and lose their zero when thou dost need true aim. And those who have done so will be slain in great numbers by their enemies in the great battle.

    And it came to pass that the Lord didst see the abomination wrought by man and didst cause, as He had warned, fearful malfunction to come upon the abominations and upon the artisans who thought they could do no wrong.

    Seeing the malfunctions and the confusion of men the Lord of the underworld did see an opportunity to further ensnare man and didst bring forth pistols made of plastic, whose form was such that they looked and felt like a brick, yet the eyes of man being clouded, they were consumed by the plastic pistol and did buy vast quantities of them.

    And being a deceitful spirit the Devil did make these plastic pistols unamenable to the artisans of earth and they were unable to muck much with the design, and lo these pistols did function.

    And the evil one also brought forth pistols in which the trigger didst both cock and fire them, and which require a 'Dingus' to make them appear safe.

    But man being stupid did not understand these new pistols and did proceed to shoot themselves with the plastic pistol, and with the trigger cocking pistols, for lo, their manual of arms required great intelligence which man had long since forsaken.

    Yet man did not repent of his evil ways, but continued to gloat over these new pistols blaming Satan for the negligent discharges which they themselves had committed.

    And when man had been totally ensnared with the plastic pistol the Devil didst cause a plague of the terrible Ka-BOOM to descend upon man and the plastic pistols delivered their retribution upon men. And there was great wailing and gnashing of teeth in the land.

    Then seeing that the eyes of man were slowly being opened and that man was truly sorrowful for his sinful misdeeds, the Lord did send his messengers in the form of artisans who did hear and obey the teachings of the Prophet and who didst restore the profaned 1911's to their proper configuration, and lo, to the amazement of men they didst begin to work as the Prophet intended."

    "And the LORD also looked in approval upon the .45 ACP, and saw that it was good, as it chastiseth severely the enemy, and smites him even unto the earth.

    Man will turn from the truth, and in Europe man did verily turn from the truth, as nations known for eating much cheese, losing wars, and, lo, even eschewing the fighting of wars, produced the NINE.

    Then came two great Wars, wherein the eaters of cheese and sausage conquered others for a time, verily they conquered the eaters of frogs, and of molds and fungi, as well as the weavers of lace and drinkers of wine.

    It became the time for the Men of the 1911 and .45 ACP twice to travel across the dark waters and to straighten Europe's ass out, with the aid of these instruments, and this they did.

    As Satan lives, so lived the NINE, and weapons were made to spew them out in great profusion. These weapons came to be favored by denizens of the deep cities, who hold their pistols sideways and prey upon each other. Even many bands of the keepers of the peace were seduced by the NINE.
    In time, it came to be seen in every Place of Emergency Medicine in these deep cities, that those smitten by two or three of the NINES, yea, even to the number of five or six, walked into these places of succor upon their feet and legs, and were cured of their hurts.

    The keepers of the peace reflected upon their fathers' words, that the .45ACP striketh the doer of evil, smiteth him unto the ground, breaketh his bones and shocketh his body hydrostatically, so that he was wont to die upon the spot.

    The LORD spake to the Chiefs and Sheriffs, and many of these men returned their departments to the true path, and the LORD was pleased."

    Interesting passage.

    Is that from the New "Metalurgical" Version?

    I confess, I was sucked in. The slenderness and flatness, .45 cartridge and trigger are just like painted ladies and strong drink. ;)
