Well, I am a member of RUG and not anti-gun. I do think
that we need to be a little more responsible about them and
not treat guns like a religion.
I frankly no longer remember what Patton carried. I think
he did get offended when they were described as "pearl
handled", the were ivory. He said that only a pimp would
carry a pearl handled gun.
