"Send it." I think this originated with US snipers in the sandbox, but now you can hear it almost anywhere/everywhere. For example, I'll bet I hear it at least once a week on Street Outlaws/No Prep Kings.

No, but I have had a couple 59s. If you're talking about shooting DA only, you might be right. Both were just fine accuracy-wise in SA mode. ;)
I think it was the way the back of the grip was designed. I have a 6906 and it shoots like a dream.

I have a 5906 and its DA is right up there with my better DA revolvers--VERY smooth. The grip is much improved, too. The 59 and 5906 are SO different in action and feel that it's hard to believe they're the same basic gun, or that one evolved from the other. :oops:

"Shootin' from the hip"

"There you go shootin' off yo' mouth again."

"He was cocked and primed and had to let the hammer down."

"Straight as a rifle barrel and spiritually as empty."

"Breech birth."

"She wasn't wearing enough clothes to swab a shotgun with." (My old Sunday School teacher.)

"I drew a fine bead on her."

"I aim to go fishing."

"He warn't worth the powder and lead it would take to shoot him."

And the old baseball term for a batter who drew a walk:

"He got an Annie Oakley."

And who can forget the old Army term:

"Maggies' drawers."

I remember seeing Maggie's drawers on the highpower range. Fortunately, never on my target.
