About My Weapon

A bunch of you are extremely curious about my weapon, which is fine by me. As my loyal readers surely know, I love to talk about and describe my weapon.

I call it the Mini Cougar. It's total length is 7.2 inches, but it has a unique rotating barrel that is 3.7 inches alone! I often get compliments about my Mini Cougar because it accommodates smaller hands and also protects larger hands from being pinched by the slide. All edges are rounded or beveled and carefully finished to make my Mini Cougar virtually snagproof and exceptionally easy to draw and conceal.

Hope this clears up any confusion. Feal free to use comments to discuss your weapons.


  • What's your position on gun control? Or do you have more than one? If so, what's your favorite position? Do you ever fire off a few shots prematurely?

  • 1) I'm everywhere but behind gun control, obviously.
    2) I treat every bullet as if it's my last. So, no. Never. I do NOT fire off a few shots prematurely.

  • Even though your total length is only 7.2 inches (and don't ever let anyone try to intimidate you with something larger) you can take comfort in the fact that it's ideal for a two handed shooting grip.

    Granted a two handed grip is best in competition, but it does tend to lead to occasional premature shooting.

    And, of course, now and then, the ever embarassing dry-fire.

  • I think Lurch meant misfire or hangfire. All fire is dry until you spray some liguid on it. But you are supposed to keep your face powder dry.

  • Misfire and hangfire are what happen with defective ammunition, defective fuzes, or faulty/defective primers.

    Dry-fire is what you do with no ammo loaded, or an empty magazine.

  • Lurch is quite right. I was making a little joke about Jeff's face powder. While he is powdering his nose, probably with some crank, it bears mentioning that some guns should not be dry fired. I have heard it can break the firing pin. Then where would you be?

  • Once you squeeze off a round, how long before you can squeeze off another one?

  • A manly non-reporter like Jeff can squeeze off rounds like a ShPagin PPSh41 burp gun.

  • I thought Beretta was a TV show from the 70s??!?!?

  • You know, the pathetic thing about Berrettas is their ability (if one can call it that) to be disassembled by pushing the slide might remember Jet Li doing this to Mel Gibson (who, let's face it, deserved it) in Lethal Weapon XXI (or whatever). Mel was holding his gun on the old Jetster and, shazaam, Mel's little gun just sorta......fell to bits.

    So, have you posed with your Berretta like a Barberini faun?
