Doing some more homework for my trade piece with . Just as I needed to do some homework for Foto Finish's switchblade
so I had to do some homework for Zesty Gourmand's weapons.

This is a HK P9S. It's a 9x19mm single stack double action pistol that was made from the late 1960s to the early 80s. I have always been curious about it and decided that I'd use this art trade as an excuse to do some study of it. For its time it had several unique features. It also had one feature that today would make most safety range officers itchy, but folks did things differently back then.

It's a delayed blowback, roller-lock action, an action similar to that found on the G3 rifle, with polygonal rifling, and was one of the first handguns to make extensive use of polymer components in its frame. Although the HK VP70 holds the distinction of being the first true polymer frame handgun

On other advantage the P9S had is that it possessed a fixed barrel which made attaching a suppressor to it much easier. Especially in the 1970s and 80s when suppressors were often much larger and heavier then current models

Ian over at Forgotten Weapons posted a video about the HK P9S YouTube . It is one of his earliest videos so some of the production quality is not as good as his later work but it is still interesting.

There were Maxim designed suppressors with the central spindle and the hole through the baffles off-center for just such installations.

Polymer framed pistols like Glocks, XDS, and M&Ps usually tend to be blocky compared to hammered steel pistols, though there are exceptions like the HK VP70, and the Intratec Tec-9, where polymer framed guns don’t always look like a brick with a pistol grip and trigger. Glocks are basically the Toyota Corolla of handguns.

You know, I know that you said that in Jest but…it actually can be a bit of a dangerous job sometimes. Some Food Critics have had to be incognito when they go to a place to do reviews, especially ones that are more "Critical" so to speak. It also helps to ensure that their review is more 'Honest' by doing this. They also can get death threats or worse if they get found giving a bad review by the restaurant staff/owner they criticized (I mean, I understand why, a bad review from a respected critic can be the death of a restaurant).

Granted, it's not THAT life threatening or anything but still being a food critic isn't all sunshine and rainbows and can be a rather draining experience for some.
