The Curse of The Brigade Strikes Again

Dear HAC,

Jesus, Harold, what kind of mojo did you put in The Brigade?

With the recent death of Jewboy schlock actor Corey Haim, no less than four of the Hollyweird celebs and stars you mentioned in your "casualty list" in obvious pseudonyms in your Taking Down Tinsel Town section of The Brigade are now dead in actual fact. Bea Arthur, Heath Ledger, Brittany Murphy, and now Corey Haim. You're doing almost as well as Cat-Eyes Lockhart did with his rifle.

I think the Goat Dancers are telling the truth. You really do have black magical powers.

-Ed Peacock

Actually, Ed, I think that's basically your average attrition rate for Hollyweird. The glitterati are always dying young from the various kinds of abuse of their bodies they practice, except for Bea Arthur, who didn't die young enough. - HAC

On page 318 of "The Brigade" is the following quote:

"Three large cardboard cases lay on the floor in one corner. Randall
went over to one of them, opened it with a pocket knife, and while Erica watched in fascination
he drew out a Ruger .22 Bearcat and a silencer, which he screwed onto the muzzle of the pistol,"

- I am not saying it isn't possible, but that looks like a glaring error to me because the Bearcat is a single action revolver, and the only revolver ever known to be effectively silenced is the old Russian Nagant, and purely because that revolver moved its cylinder forward with each shot and the chamber mouth, together with odd cartridge designed to flare out into the barrel wall somewhat, would block the gas from escaping out the sides of the cylinder wall/barrel gap. Once fired, the cylinder retracted somewhat and would rotate to the next chamber to fire the next cartridge, etc. I am not a firearms expert by any means, but I have owned many and fired those. A little research shows that it is very difficult to silence a "normal" revolver and this is irksome coming from a knowledgable writer. Perhaps you meant to say a Ruger Mark I or MarkII? That would have made more sense.

This comment has nothing really to do with the post, but I just have to know how HAC feels about the tragic death of Eugene Terre'Blanche of the South African AWB. I was hoping that maybe HAC would post a rememberance post honoring Eugene Terre'Blanche and the life he lived. This man did all he could until his final dayon this planet for white South Africans' plight. Not a single news story out there even mentions the race of his murderers who cowardly broke in and butchered him to death while he was asleep with machetes. It was one of the most brutal farm murders that have been taking place against White South African Boers in recent years. RIP Mr. Terre'Blanche

Wow! A gun quibble over The Brigade! Boy, that takes me back! [chuckle] When I was writing the thing and sending out the sample chapters I had the gun nuts (none of whom had ever actually used a weapon in combat, to my knowledge) crawling all over it. I originally armed Cat-Eyes Lockhart with a Russian Dragunov, but the screams grew unbearable.

Yes, you're right, that was a brain fart on my part. My own first handgun was a Western style Ruger Bearcat, so I know it's a revolver. At the risk of launching another teapot tempest, if memory serves I meant to say Ruger Hi-Standard. Nobody caught it at the time, which is unusual, since the gun aspects were what provoked the most, er, "debate."

I'm looking forward to the day when some MSM story reads something like ".. Marta Moskowitz ... choked to death on a bagel" Of all the kikes out there, that one has to be the one of the most-annoying of all. They're all annoying, but that one is such a blatant Blasphemer that she deserves to die by having that blowhole stuffed with something that won't let any air through.
