Thread Name: BS: Suddenly Britain has a knife culture
Subject: RE: BS: Suddenly Britain has a knife culture
Remember that Sherlock Holmes was a pretty lousy shot. He prefered a (loaded) stick and let Watson, a pretty good shot, carry the firearm. (And shooting a "patriotic VR" into the brickwork of 221B with "Boxer cartridges" was a pretty stupid idea.)
Firearms are nice and all, in their place, but I'll take the Holmes' Solution if I have a choice (actually, I prefer the Monty Python solution of "Run away! Run away!). Silent, effective....
