I agree 100%, it's not a positive addition to the struggle.
FYI: It was actually a 22LR Revolver. Fox Q13 showed the actual revolver on scene. It had a pretty long barrel and appeared to be older than me. I was skeptical of it's ability to even function properly, but I suppose it is a revolver, not much to fail.
p.s. Sorry to hear about your negative OC incident the other day... it could have been worse I suppose.
