Boston Globe: The nation of the armed
The funny thing is, they almost always begin like this...
When I first pick up an unloaded revolver, my hand trembles, and it takes me several attempts to pull the trigger...
...but, quite a few (with the obvious exception of those written by Steve "Ow! My vagina's killing me!" Bailey and John "Turnpike" Rosenthal) actually end like this.
...I loaded a .22, raised it and squeezed the trigger. I hit the target five times out of five. If the magazine had held more bullets I'd have kept shooting.

I left my two cents (OK, maybe more like a nickel) there already (under my old Boston Globe account username, RKBA_in_MA).
