Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 23, 2019

What do you get for a guy who has everything, and whose country has recently been implicated in the murder of a prominent dissident journalist? Pakistani senators had a perfect answer when the Saudi Crown Prince, visited on Monday, giving him a golden Heckler & Koch MP5. The MP5 is the gift that keeps on giving at 650 rounds per minute, complete with elaborate designs engraved into its gold components. Social media reaction to Pakistan's gift were ... not cool.

Opinions were also split about the gun itself, some feeling it was perfectly suited to the prince's needs, while others advised Islamabad on more fitting alternatives... like a Golden Bone Saw....

While Pakistan's gift is undeniably impressive, it would still pale in comparison to what the Trump administration is rumored to be planning. House Democrats are up in arms over an alleged attempt to sell the Saudi Kingdom sensitive nuclear secrets that might help it develop a nuclear weapon ... there is no word yet on whether it will also be decorated with precious metals.

Psssshhh. The real answer is a Rolls-Royce Phantom 2. 4.3 litre, 30 horsepower, six cylinder engine, with Stromberg downdraft carburetor, can go from zero to 100 kilometres an hour in 12.5 seconds. Get the right color.

Golden Rolls.. Golden tanks.... sheesh!!!

A golden gun was more than enough considering they even honored him with a fighter escort. They never did that for anyone except for President Xi of China.

Escort for MBS...

Abraham Lincoln's Henry Rifle
The Abraham Lincoln Henry Rifle

Although President Abraham Lincoln was familiar with firearms and acutely involved in the firearms available at the time of the American Civil War, there was still a great deal of competition for his and the military's attention when it came to new firearms developments. During the war, Oliver Winchester, as president of the Henry company, makers of the Henry rifle, commissioned a special rifle for President Lincoln himself.

This gold mounted, engraved Henry rifle was presented to Abraham Lincoln in an effort to seek his influence in their purchase for the war effort. This is an extraordinary rifle and one of the most prized displays of the Smithsonian Museum firearms collection. This rifle was awarded the National Rifle Association Collectors Society Gold Medal as an outstanding historical firearm.

About 1,700 of these rifles were purchased by the U.S. government during the Civil War. Many more were purchased by individual soldiers who were convinced it offered a significant personal advantage to them in battle.

The company officially became Winchester Repeating Arms in 1866. View our historical timeline for a comprehensive look at the beginnings of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company.

Google say the actual Patton quote was:

"Son, only a pimp in a Louisiana whore- house carries pearl-handled revolvers. These are ivory."

Canadian pimps, maybe. LOL

Pimps have gone out of business. Hookers now freelance thanks to Facebook and Tinder.

I have always associated pearl handle Derringers with dandies and riverboat gamblers.

Anyways... this is the gun:

Apparently POF has a range of gold guns to gift to visiting dignitaries, giving one to Trump would be so wrong at so many levels... like at least more than a few anti-gun people on the Retort will have puppies.. and that would be the least of it.

You can see two different gold guns in this video from 1:50 to 2:45.
