    When recently watching the 2nd season of Bones i came across something in episode 12 that made me play it again to see if what I heard was what I heard. It seams as though one of the characters makes a pro 2A statement. Ill let you decide for yourself.

    To set it up for those who don't watch the show, Bones is a series about a forensic anthropologist named Bones. She in just about every episode up till episode 12 continues to asks her FBI partner for a gun to which he always tells her she don't need one. To me this clip shows 2 sides to the gun ownership debate, Booth the FBI agent who is against Bones a private citizen having firearm and Bones who takes a stand and gets a firearm on her own because she knows shes entitled to own a firearm.

    This clip starts off with Angela asking bones how she deals with the fear of being attacked. The rest is self explanatory although the clip deals with the size of the gun in a suggestive manner. The statement is made at the end of the clip.

    The ultra-corny irony keeps me from watching it.



    Thumbs up to them for portraying the "anti" guy as the ********* and giving her a good comeback.

    According to Flickr, the video is played in Adobe Flash Player 10. So if you don't have the latest version it wont play.

    Her name isn't actually Bones it's Temperance Brennan. Bones is the nickname the FBI agent gave her since that's what she works with all day long.

    It's a good show, you should give it a chance.

    The novels are so much better. I like the TV show but they had to dumb it down and Hollywood it up so much it's barely a shadow of the character from the novels.

    Yeah, I know it is TV, but while her finger control was good, her muzzle awareness was disastrous.

    It looked to me like it was a S&W .500, yeah that's a good gun for a beginner.:shock: I would like to see her actually try to use it for more than a prop.

    I don't remember the name of the movie (maybe it was the same as the quote) but I'm sure you all remember the famous line:
    "Stop! Or my Mon will Shoot!"
    That last comment just reminded me of that....

    Yea it is supposed to be a .500 mag. Somehow, in the filming it looks too small to actually be a "X" frame. I think they may be using a 629 for filming and just are calling it a .500. It is hard to tell from watching the show, but it just looks too small in her had to be a .500 mag.

    Actually they're not too bad with the light loads as long as you're ready for it. I know several people who own them and it's not much worse than a .44 mag. If you use heavy loads, OUCH! There is just no way to make it pleasant.

    For someone who doesn't have shooting experience though, it could be interesting regardless of the load used. Better to have a smaller gun that you can master than a cannon that you can't control.

    Well the one in my avatar is a .500 4".

    The recoil is not all that big a deal. In fact I modified one of the non-vented barrel attachments from the .475 so it would fit the .500 and installed it on mine. I prefer not to have a functioning compensator on the 4". The gas vents on the standard pistol are VERY loud, and while I suppose they help a lot on the long barrel models where there is some leverage, on the four inch, they just blow hot gas in your sight picture. Also I want to be able to load and carry snake shot in this and those holes in the top of the barrel would not work well in combination with that.

    Regards

    In season 3 episode 5 "Mummy in the maze" she fires the gun 2 times near the end.

    Its actually kind of funny because this being a Halloween episode she (Bones) is dressed as Wonder Women. When her and the FBI agent go to catch the killer she suddenly appears with the gun. Booth the agent looks at her and asked where exactly did she hide that thing. Later in the clip she makes a comment about her gun being too big for her.

    I uploaded the clip and edited out most of the mundane portions because the entire clip is roughly 5 min long.

    The second shot fired with the gun causes both of them to fall down.

    Her pistol was'nt loaded. If it had been the cartridges in the cylinder would've fallen out when she swung out the cylinder with the pistol angled up. But hey, it's Hollywierd.

    At least she kept the muzzle pointed down range after it smacked her in the face.
