I noticed on a local gun dealer's website that all of his brand spankin' new Smith & Wesson Airweight revolvers were tagged with the warning "NOT TO BE FIRED, UNSAFE TO SHOOT!".
When I e-mailed the owner to ask why all of his brand new Airweights were unsafe to shoot, he replied with the following:
"These guns were made with alloy cylinders and the unsafe to fire warning comes from Smith & Wesson itself."
You've got to be kidding me. Does Smith & Wesson really manufacture and sell guns they consider unsafe (or choose to lable unsafe)?!?
