it is to me ive never spent more than $400-425 on a gun in my life...so this is significantly more so it IS a splurge gun for me. maybe not for you but is for me. This will most likely be the most expensive gun I ever buy or own..ive never had this much to spend or spent this much on a gun B4 and dont plan on spending this much ever again.

I think most of the online stuff about them centers on the idea of making a Splurge gun and using shaving cream. But the real Splurge guns had to use something like whipped cream since they were blasting people in the face with open eyes with them. In this day and age, banana cream would be easy to do, especially since I'm a reloader.

I've always found antique firearms fascinating. I wouldn't mind finding one of these:

http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w459/concretefuzzynuts/apache-gun2.jpg
http://i1076.photobucket.com/albums/w459/concretefuzzynuts/apache-gun.jpg

"Amazing mostly through its original look, because in terms of effectiveness, Apache was more of a toy-gun.

Popular as a self-defense weapon, at the end of the 19th century, the Apache was a small weapon, measuring only 4 cm across, when folded. The blade, if we can even call it that, was only a little over 3 cm long, and very thin. If you were to stab someone with that thing, you would get yourself in even more trouble as that would only piss him off.

In terms of firepower, the Apache isnít much stronger than it is in close quarter combat, the short nozzle and the fact that the hammer doesnít hit the back of the cartridge, like it does in modern weapons, made it pretty week.

The knuckle-duster-like handle had such tiny finger holes that only the skinniest could fit in, so itís no surprise the Apache didnít make a big impact as a weapon. It did have in interesting design though, so it became a collectible. Most of the ones left today are plated with gold and sell for no less than $4,000"

Used to make devices to shoot shaving cream in the college dorm, but they generally involved rubber tubing and a clamp of some sort to act as a fire control device.

Strictly one shot "weapons" and of limited use defensively as they could not be readily concealed. The Splurge gun would have been a more useful alternative.

It's not vague. The Splurge gun is clearly a Splurge gun. I find threads all the time talking about things that I haven't heard of. I either pass over them, look them up in a search, or ask about it in the thread.

By your logic, I could start a thread about the Gyrojet and it would be fine for posters to tell us about how they always wanted an original 1873 Winchester without relating it to the Gyrojet in any way.

You talking about someone else being self centered is sad. You use a slang term, that obviously wasn't recognized by a majority of the posters, because the term HAS a common proper use, and you call others "self-centered"?

A proper use of a SLANG term? Slang is the deliberate IMPROPER use of a language. Never mind the fact that "Splurge Gun" isn't slang.

I wouldn't call that a fail. It's a misunderstanding. The remarkable aspect is that after it was pointed out what I was talking about, by myself and others, people just kept posting about what was important to them. It's not even the fact that they missed the point, it's that their posts consisted of "I want, I want".

Also comical is how a guy who is still pissed off about not getting complete agreement with his opinion in a separate, prior thread, came in here and tried to pee on this one.

Take a deep breath, and read the thread. A Splurge gun has nothing to do with the concept of "splurging" on a gun. Do your profession proud, and actually look at what is in front of you. I posted pictures of it, a link has been posted about it.

I'll make it as clear as I can, but I can't guarantee you'll understand it. The Splurge gun is an imaginary weapon featured in the movie "Bugsy Malone", which was made in 1976. If after seeing what a Splurge gun does in the movie, you don't want one, you can post to that effect, or not.

Frankly, with all the commercial interest in "Supersoaker" type water guns, Nurf guns, and other types of toys, I'm surprised at the lack of interest in a magazine fed, custard shooting, "gun" by the posters in this thread.

Not remarkable at all, WiskyT........ It's easily understood why this happened, once you realize a lot of people post a response after having only read the original post. I do the same thing quite often.......only then do I read the rest of the thread. Sometimes I don't bother to read the whole thread because I don't really care to invest the time in it. Call it what you will, but it's a pretty common thing to do.

I have both here and the 686 ended up with a very nice trigger. Accuracy wise, I still have to give it to the Python although I prefer the Smith action.

BTW I am aslo less than thrilled about the Python copy barrel and extra weight in the Smith.

For fun, compare the weight of a 4" 686 and a 4" 629. As a handloader I know which I'd rather carry for a number of reasons.

I do the same thing quite often.......only then do I read the rest of the thread. Sometimes I don't bother to read the whole thread because I don't really care to invest the time in it. Call it what you will, but it's a pretty common thing to do.

Personally, I don't think the thread was ruined at all. The "misguided" posts contributed to the interest level, overall..........:supergrin:

ooc

Yeah, casual following of a post isn't remarkable. Heck, it's the way it's supposed to be. GTalk isn't brain surgery and it's not supposed to be. It's the repetitive aspect of it, and how the default for missing the point is "I want".

Two possible choices:

#1 - Your true topic, the whip cream gun, was totally ignored because your OP was obscure.

#2 - You were trolling to make a point, and got called on it.

#1- The true topic was initially missed, but the thread was put on track in post #7, 45 minutes or so after the start of the thread.

#2- That's it! I set a diabolical trap to draw people into making off-topic posts so I could then argue about it. Like you have to TRY to get people to post off-topic in an internet forum. Did you stay up all night figuring out my true motivation:rofl:

Who the f cares anymore!

You do realize that you are not REQUIRED to follow this thread? There is no shortage of threads on this board where you can give your valuable input. I'm sure they need people to post the work "dick" in GNG.

Great movie.

Yes, it is. And it's forgotten about. Tell me this please. Were you thinking of this movie before you saw this thread? Having found this thread, did it remind you of how much you liked the movie? Are you debating watching it now that you've seen this thread? How many decades has it been since you've seen it last?

It's a lot of questions, and I'm not looking to grill you, I was just interested if you thought the same things about the movie as I do. I was looking for a book the other day and found a dusty old VHS cassette. I know, I'm a troll for talking about VHS cassettes since there will be some on here that don't know what they are. Anyway, it was Bugsy Malone. I found the only VHS player in the house and my 5yo son and I watched it. I think I liked it more than he did, but he liked Jodi Foster as much as I did when I was a kid and watched it.

Back on topic:supergrin:..Do you want a Splurge gun?

This movie is a little before my time so I haven't seen it. That would explain why I didn't understand the original post.

Oh and what the heck is a VHS?









JK I'm not that young.

I don't know if it would be that great watching it for the first time as an adult. Also, what we thought was great in the 70's, is played out by now. But, it is a good movie even without my nostalgia tinted glasses, so you might want to check it out.

If you really want to see some long forgotten home video "technology", search for "laserdisc" and "betamax".

When you decide to "splurge" you should buy a gun you have wanted since childhood.

No, you lost your little pissing contest that you started and now are being a troll. It's an improvement though, since I notice that when you keep your posts to one sentence they are at least in English.

You seem to be the one hung up about other issues. Seems to me you have the butthurt problem.

I just decided to post up the picture I set up when I thought this thread was going to make sense.

Talk about problems with English???? 75% of the posters in this thread didn't know what your thread title was about and you didn't even have the sense to clear it up in your OP.

Then you proceeded to get snarky with folks.

dude, you got issues.

So you were just browsing along, found a thread you thought would be interesting, decided the thread wasn't what you thought it was, and then proceeded to post nonsense after you determined the thread didn't interest you. That would make your posts trolling. You came into this thread and trolled.

And snarky would be your conduct in the other thread. In that thread, you tried the same crap after you found that some people in it didn't agree with you. You spouted out semi-literate insults until several people called you out on it.

It's obvious what you are doing here. You came into this thread for the sole purpose of causing a poop storm. That is trolling. You are a troll.

If I hadn't done a Google search of "Splurge Gun", I still wouldn't know what one was. Now that I do know, I also know I don't really want one, have never seen the movie and have no desire to see the movie.

Nevertheless, in Wisky's defense, it was pretty clear in the original post that he was referring to something other than a "Dream Gun", as he had capitalized the words Splurge and Gun. Which was why I Google searched the term in the first place.

Carry On.

Thanks. That's all I'm doing here. I'm talking about the Splurge gun.

Take a deep breath, and read the thread. A Splurge gun has nothing to do with the concept of "splurging" on a gun. Do your profession proud, and actually look at what is in front of you. I posted pictures of it, a link has been posted about it.

I'll make it as clear as I can, but I can't guarantee you'll understand it. The Splurge gun is an imaginary weapon featured in the movie "Bugsy Malone", which was made in 1976. If after seeing what a Splurge gun does in the movie, you don't want one, you can post to that effect, or not.

Frankly, with all the commercial interest in "Supersoaker" type water guns, Nurf guns, and other types of toys, I'm surprised at the lack of interest in a magazine fed, custard shooting, "gun" by the posters in this thread.

I have some RILLY nice guns, any of which could be called "splurge guns". But ever since Ruger came out with the SR1911 I have been Jonesing big time for one a them. Actually as long as I'm dreaming I'd like a brace of them in a custom double shoulder holster rig. They are some beautiful 1911s and everything I can read or hear on them is good. SIGH.........

it was clear in the first post. It was clarified further in several posts after. It even includes pictures, and yet some glance right over that in their zeal to tell us what they want to talk about.

op mad!!!! Eject!!! Eject!!! Eject!!!!
