Stolen from LawDog’s Facebook page for your reading pleasure:

Since the statute of limitations has run out, here’s the back-story behind the “Popsicle Shot” meme:
So. There I am, in the Wal-Mart parking lot earlier, taking deep breaths before venturing into the Heart of Darkness, when I notice a smartly-dressed young lady, probably college-aged, moving with a rapid stride down the centre of the driving section of the parking lot.
This strikes me as a bit odd — most people walk closer to the bumpers of the parked cars — and as I take a closer look, I notice that she has her right hand buried forearm-deep in her purse.
Oh, ho, think I, we have three anomalies here …
And then Chew Toy Of Interest #1 pops out between two pickups, spins her half around by her upper left arm whilst bellowing something that sounded suspiciously like, “You mucking bore!”, before Our Wee Damsel grabs the collar of his sweatshirt with her left hand, jerks a hot-pink Comtech Stinger out of her purse (rather than the pistol I was expecting), and hammers it into his taint area with three lovely looping uppercuts.
As an aside, being a dilettante in the Sweet Science, I have a great deal of admiration for the loving papa or uncle who taught her how to put her weight into her punches. Damn.
Anyhoo, apparently getting punched in the gooch by a healthy girl with some skill will turn out the lights, because he dropped like a sack of dead trout and laid there for at least five minutes longer than it took her to hurry into the store.
Looks like the Christmas holiday this year is getting off to a rollicking start.
Oh yes, this is the Comtech Stinger.

  1. Interesting that this account has British spellings and terms. Are there Walmarts in England? Also, self-defense, especially with any sort of device, is virtually illegal there. Blimey.

  2. I had to look up the Comtech Stinger.

    It looks more effective than the Go-Guard (dear lord, I remember when Erin Palette looked at that piece of crap). And shot placement can be a force multiplier; if I got hit a couple times in the happy bits with that I’d probably lose interest in ANYTHING for a while too.

  3. Speaking of small tools, I still wish I’d bought a Hideaway Knife when that outfit was still in business. At least it doesn’t seem to be any longer… though I suppose it would be possible to make my own.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
