Gun Porn

Pics of a gun in an airport (I think you see what I did there) and a great read on flying with one of those evil, only belongs on a battlefield, baby killing tools of anarchists. Gasp! I am shocked, shocked I tell you to find out that the darn thing didnt just hijack the plane all by itself! Run for your lives!

On a side note… since I just returned from the friendly skies (Vegas, Baby!) I will share my own “gun porn” on a plane story.

No, I didnt fly with a gun this time, but while we were packing and getting ready for the trip the wife suggested that since it was such a long flight I should pack some magazines to read on the plane. To which I replied… “Honey, all I have are gun-rags”. We had a few chuckles about how you are not supposed to read those kinds of periodicals on a airplane cause it would get everybody all wee-weed up.

Well, wouldnt you know it, that on the flight out to Nevada some dude across the isle was reading a gun-rag. I laughed. It was actually more of a historical magazine chronicling the guns of the civil war (not those evil modern sporty something or others) so it wasnt as sensationalistic and no one payed it any mind. It did end up striking up a conversation between the guy with the magazine and another guy sitting in my row. Later when the guy on my row asked to borrow the magazine to thumb through I gave him a good ribbing on how you are not supposed to bring those kinds of magazines onto a plane. We had a good laugh and got to talking about firearms and ended up conversing about his unknown-caliber breach loading shotgun which he came across a while back and had the stocks restored.

Gasp! Talking about guns on a plane! Oh the horror! Yes, a good time was had by all and not a single national security incident was started. It was great however, to see the gleeful smirks we all had while doing so.

One response to “Gun Porn

  1. Last time I flew, I forgot the reading material, and thus bought a magazine at the airport. I was surprised that they even sold “gun-rags” at Hudson News (that’s what they’re called, right?), but bought a copy of “Guns” for my flight. No one said a thing. I too, had that moment of thinking that I’d be singled out for some “random” strip search based on my choice of reading material, but that never happened…
