    That's right... what flavor is your gun?

    Does your Glock taste like licorice?
    ...your Dad's old levergun like hickory-smoked venison?
    ...your Les Baer like a smooth 42 year-old malt?
    ...your Hi-Point like a Big Mac?

    I guess what I'm asking is: What flavor is your gun?!!!

    (...no Hoppe's allowed!) :D

    If my mauser had a taste, it would be like a dry pork chop.

    If my .22 pump had a taste, it would be mashed potatoes and brown gravy. Lots of tasty gravy.

    And my mini-14 would be like a juicy hamburger. With cheese, but nothing else.

    :evil:

    Generally, if someone spots you putting a gun in your mouth, you get taken away by the men in white coats and get to wear the huggy jacket in a padded room. :D

    My FM would most likely taste like Belgian truffles, grown in Argentina.

    My Rossi like cayenne pepper.

    and my Zastava would most likely taste like cold, hard steel.

    Hmm, this may be a bit too abstract of an excercise for many folks here...

    Yes, it is damned silly, but actually requires some thought to "do it justice" (whatever that may entail).

    42-year-old malt?

    Never had better than 21. 42 must be some good Shi'ite.

    Any weirdo can lick his rifle, but only a truly talented man can lick his gun. :eek:

    My nod to the excellent film Local Hero (1983).

    Taste?...probably like the foil wrapper of a Hershey kisses. You know, aluminum frame with stainless slide.

    Traditionally, those who eat their guns don't generally report the taste! :what: :eek: :evil: :evil: :evil:

    I haven't actually tasted mine, but I hypothesize that they would taste like Hoppe's Elite Gun Oil, and either plasticy or woody, depending on the stock.




    In all honesty, I've never considered this before.

    Good. You're almost there...

    Now that you've begun your journey into the esoteric, step out farther past the literal and contemplate the flavors of your guns (I'll even forgive the forbidden Hoppe's comment).

    I have one that tastes like rib eye, another tastes somewhat like chicken soup with rice, carrots, celery, onions. I drink my pistol, no eating there, and it resembles Nestle Quick. the Mossberg, well its so old, I smell it, the smells turn to a flavor, the flavor is ingested in minute doses, then excreted, and the excretions emit odors of ... well do you remember Hubba Bubba? That's what it's like.

    Now that I've eaten, drank, or chewed all my guns, I'm defenseless. :( :D
