Ah, the joys of living in the Great Frozen, Cold, Blizzard of the North!

Amos, a TRUE story!

One of the chaps in our Cowboy Shooting group needed a new revolver. So he went 'round to Sam's and bought hisself a Ruger Vacquero (yes, it's real and you can look it up; it's also not cheap). Well, he should have known better, because when he had some very minor trouble with it, related to breaking the in mechanism, he took it back to Sam. Sam knew the problems would soon smooth themselves out, so he told the guy it was a left-handed revolver and he was shooting it right-handed. Sam also told him that since the barrel had a right-hand twist to the rifling and he was shooting it right-handed the only way to offset the problems was to use left-handed bullets. The guy only twigged when he called Ruger, told the technician on the other end of the phone what Sam had said, and the tech laughed for better than five minutes straight. The Tech then explained that the guy had been had -- and it would work well after the parts "wore in." The guy tells this on himself now and nearly chokes with laughter about how he could have been so "green."
