A handy holster...

It only needs one small improvement to perfect it: make it glow-in-the-dark so that the intruder/sleepwalking toddler/stroppy teeenager can more easily find the gun in the dark and blow out the brains of their choice (yours, theirs, the cats...).

Oh, I Do So miss living in America!

Dear Jeff, I don't have a glow-in-the-dark holster, but if I did, I'd want a glow-in-the-dark Thompson machine gun to go along with it...

Ravenone’s comment is:

the handy holster ...they need to make a big version. To hold my sketchbooks. And pens. And coffee cup.... hrm. Wonder how long it'll be until we have the first shooting-while-sleepwalking? (Sorry, sir, didn't mean to shoot you, I was asleep!)

I am the Bulletin's art director so the link, although appearing out of place in the context of a graphic design discussion instead of one about nonproliferation, is totally perfect.

Speaking of which, thanks for linking to the Bulletin, Armin... and thanks for helping to spread the word about our wonderful nonprofit and its important work by sharing the link.
