I was serious about that, you understand. I once managed to knock my Browning Hi-Power off a shelf that was actually closer to seven feet high. It landed on the hammer. Nothing broken but it might have been bent a little. I seem to remember some pistol having a hammer that was made so that it would be obvious if it were dropped on the hammer, only I don't remember which one.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
Buy War Bonds.
