I stumbled across an article on The Loadout Room website last week and I thought I would share.
According to the article (read it in full here), it is an excerpt from the notebook an intelligence asset with a great track record in super-secret, Ninja squirrel types of endeavors. I don’t know enough about the website, it’s authors or super-secret, ninja squirrel stuff to know how factual it is…
But, since it deals with revolvers and more specifically snub-nosed revolvers it caught my attention and I thought I would share it with you. For those too busy or devoted to check out the original, here is a synopsis:
Super-secret, Ninja squirrel operative received extensive training on the preferred handgun for “embedded human intel assets,” the snub-nosed revolver chambered in 9mm.
The reasons (paraphrased):
9mm is the most common handgun round in the world
9mm is effective
A revolver is extremely reliable, especially in very close and nasty encounters
A revolver doesn’t eject brass to be left behind as evidence
It is small and easily concealed
Makes a fine clubif need be
Sounds logical and reasonable to me.
Now what I want to know is, what make and model was used? Was it a steel frame or alloy? Can I buy one of the revolvers? Can I sign up for that training without having to become a super-secret, Ninja squirrel?
