I'm sure the gun has been discussed before, but this is the first time that I have seen it listed with a "buy it now" price. And at only $47,500!

It looks like someone tried to jimmy it open with a screwdriver.

I'm not sure which one I've gotten a bigger laugh over today:

The above or this ...

At least the Col's breasts are 100% all natural white meat. Pam brings a new meaning to "silicon valley".
