    Taxi Driver movie

    OK, I like this movie. But it has some "stupid" stuff in it gunwise.
    Anyone catch when the gun salesman "Andy" made a comment about the semi-auto he was selling to Travis, saying "It holds 6 in the magazine, 7 if you put a round in the chamber. That is if you are stupid enough to put a round in the chamber".

    Is that a comment about this particular gun, or do you think he just doesn't think one should carry that way?

    (Oh, and Travis kept a round in the chamber anyhow; at least when he got shot by the guy in the leisure suit, he popped out that little semi-auto from his right sleeve and let the guy have it. And although Hollywood loves to have people rack the slide, he didn't).
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Why is this even a question?

    I don't remember the scene exactly, but it might be a cheap gun w/ an exposed hammer that if you bump it would go off.

    On another note, I'm trying to get a friend of mine who moonlights as a taxi driver to start carrying. I'm going to take him to the range soon.

    Love Taxi Driver...

    "Some day a real rain is going to come down and wash away all the scum and garbage..."
    "Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
