Worst Handgun Ever

My baby cousin called me the other day and asked me what my favorite handguns are because he’s thinking about getting one. Before I could answer he babbled on about various video game guns that he wants and different scenarios that the gun might be needed for. Red Dead Revolver came up a few times, as well as Grand Theft Auto. No zombie scenarios though. Strange, I wondered as he babbled on because we always stayed up late watching zombie movies.

When he finally took a breath, the first question out of my mouth was “Since when are you into shooting?”  He tells me since he just got back from the range with a friend of his.  That morning. And he couldn’t wait to call me up and tell me all about it.

Lets just stop here a minute so I can give you some backround. I lived with my baby cousin for a while. His momma is my 1st cousin. And when I tell you they are anti-gun, you can imagine the hell I was living in. Because not only were they anti-gun…they were the L word. And I don’t mean the L-Word by same name of that show. The L word that will not be written here except if I’m talking about how much lube needs to be liberally applied to my minie balls.

Anyway, back to the convo. I start telling him the first handgun I would suggest would be a J-frame revolver. By the silence I realized he had no idea what I was talking about. So then I started naming the handguns I have. I got as far as saying 19 before he cut me off and told me that 1911s are the absolute worst handgun ever. I almost dropped the phone.

How can this be the absolute worst handgun ever?

He tells me it jams too much. I told him its operator error. More silence. I had to explain operator error. Then he tells me about how his friend hates 1911s. I told him not to listen to his friend. This went on & on until he told me he shot a Remington 870 rifle. Shotgun you mean, I told him. No…he said, i mean rifle. I told him, no the one you shot probably has a rifled barrel. Back & forth we go again.

I told him to stick to his video games.

    Clearly he needs your help. Don't abandon him so soon!

    My first thought was "why are you wasting time on this clown?" But, he's a relative. Sounds as if you need to take him out to the range.
