Willaim Gibson ( @GreatDismal ) does not like Tacti-Cool pistols!

Willaim Gibson, famous sci-fi author and journalist, tweeted that the Zimmerman Arms .22 Pistol I blogged about is “for dorks in armored golf cart“.

(the link he posted revolves to this blog post)

Mr Gibson: I think if you spent 20 minutes at a range with a .22 pistol and 50 round magazine, you would change your mind! A 50 round magazine is 40 rounds more fun than a 10 round magazine 🙂

I wonder what Stephen Hunter’s take on Tacti-Awesome pistols is …

    If you have read Mr. Gibson's books as I have (all of them), you will recall he has a fondness for more archaic hardware; specifically, 32/22 S&W .22LR revolvers, Weatherby belted magnum rifles, and (fictional?) large bore revolvers with xenon projector tactical lights.

    Everybody knows that the elite Food Court Team Six at Mall of America uses those armored golf carts.

    They can be at a "skater in progress" call anywhere in the mall in less than 20 minutes.
