So I finally did it. To the dismay of socialists everywhere I bought a very nice Heckler & Koch P30 9mm pistol. It's similar to the HK USP 30 which is the preferred sidearm of the British SAS (the only thing in Britain which still works). If it's good enough for the SAS, it's good enough for me, I thought.
It wasn't cheap, but it's wonderfully light and well made, and if properly maintained it should last a very long time.
There was a 72 hour waiting period. "But I'm mad now!" I joked to the cashier. I got the feeling it wasn't the first time he'd heard that.
