Glock in a Solo Cup

By Phil Bourjaily

Trolling people on Craigslist is a malicious internet sport, but it can be funny in a juvenile way. This string of e-mails between a buyer looking for disguisable weapons and a seller with home-made wares is a classic of the genre. It’s four years old and it would have lived on in the ether forever unknown to me had not one of my kids found it when he was supposed to be studying and sent me the link.

If you shop for disguisable weapons on Craigslist and you catch the eye of someone who is either a cop or a Class III license holder with too much time on his hands, this is what happens:

Original ad:
****Disguisable weapons wanted ***
Wanted: hidden blades, belt buckle knives, cane swords, etc . . .
Offering: cash, items for barter

From Me to **********@***********.org:

Hey,
I saw your ad looking for concealable/disguised weapons. I have several fine-crafted items you may be interested in. Respond if you are interested and I will send you pictures and prices.

Thanks,
Mike

From Jeff ****** to Me:
I am. Let’s see what you got.

From Me to Jeff ******:
Jeff,
Here you go:

Looks like a normal spoon, right?

Wrong. It is actually a deadly 2.5" half-smooth, half-serrated knife with tactical grip. One minute you are enjoying a bowl of cereal, and the next you are fighting off attackers with this deadly and disguised weapon.

I am asking $50 for the blade. Let me know if you want to stop by and take a look at it.

Mike

From Jeff ****** to Me:
That is stupid and looks like crap. Unless you have anything better to offer, don’t waste my time.

From Me to Jeff ******:
Jeff,
Thanks for reconsidering. Here are three quality disguised weapons that I think you will love:

At first glance, this looks like a normal party cup. However, if you look close enough, you will see that it is really a fully automatic Glock 18C. You will be able to pour your enemies a nice warm cup of lead with this fine purchase. Asking $900 for the gun/cup combo.

It goes on. If you want to read the whole thing and aren’t offended by salty language, it’s worth a click.

Something like this would make a great "Checkout Line" piece for "The Gun Nuts" for April Fools' Day.

I was thinking about this yesterday sitting on a log squirrel hunting (Skunked). What if the guy was a legitimate collector and not some bone head, 007 want2be felon waiting to happen. Although he could have explained and his response sure was boneheaded.

I knew a guy who collected Suicide specials (small 22 and 32 cal handguns made one the late 1800 and early 1900). i collect USED pocket knives. Spanking clean new ones are too expensive and have no history. I am sure some of you guys collect some goofy things.
