You'd probably like this one as well...



Yep, loved that one as well. Very Noire  :cool.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    It seems a recurring theme in these German marching songs is the word Mädchen, or 'girl'.  I never thought of them as the most romantic of races, but the reference is in almost every second marching song.

    Also to note, this is not the only one in which the girl is presumed to be seventeen. (It is always spoken as if an ideal age)  The rules must have been different then/there.

    Men have always made art about women, and music is a form of art  :shrug.

    Times are different? I'd say we still view 17 or 18 as the ideal age. After all, that is young adulthood when we have all of our lives ahead of us.

    You are missing the point.  Today we would make a song and say 'eighteen.'  If anyone made a song about seventeen year olds, he would be considered a creep and a potential child molester.  Apparently the age of consent/legality must have been different in Nazi Germany.  It had nothing to do with anyone's life being ahead of them, rather that was the ideal age for a tryst.

    A muggy summer with some cousins in Louisiana at 15, a few stitches from a learning moment some local fellow gave me, and a girl worth the stitches are what Zydeco brings to my mind. I can smell the humidity and bayou just hearing it.

    I would argue that the original 1982 Conan the Barbarian has one of the greatest film soundtracks of all time, and that Basil Poledouris is as good (if not better) a composer than John Williams and Hans Zimmer.

    Yeah, sometimes it seems so! 

    Back in the '80s I drove down the coast to Thibodaux, Louisiana, a number of times to shoot with the Canebrake Combat Pistol Shooters.  Gas stations there had pumps on both the highway and the bayou side and at the range there were times when crawfish climbed over the backstop in great numbers. 

    I remember one match where they told us there was going to be a special "half-time" show.  At noon, an older gentleman stepped out to tell about "his gun." As he was talking, a well polished 1880s vintage Gatling Gun was rolled out on a period artillery carriage.  He went on to explain that he had purchased the Gatling from a museum in England but later found that several bolts and firing pins were missing; so he had Lockheed Aircraft make new replacements!

    The gentleman continued, that since the Gatling ate up an awful lot of black powder shells, he had the folks at Star Machine Works put together a custom Star loader with all brass fitting suitable for handling black powder!   

    The show, oh yeah, it took a couple of big guys to hoist the 50 lb. loaded brass drum magazines into place.  But when the crank was turned and the Gatling began spitting fire, smoke and lead, the backstop simply disappeared behind billowing white clouds of sulfurous smoke.

    Yeah, I guess you could say:
