Duke's latest ("They Were Great Handguns But They Weren't That Great," Sept/Oct) reminds me of something. You know how Mas Ayoob has stated if a thumb safety goes on by itself, you don't need a high hand hold or a gunsmith, but an exorcist? Well, I recently witnessed a haunting. Both guns were Standard Model Bren Tens, a model so pathetic even its top fans don't recommend firing them--ever. And both would repeatedly "safe" themselves from recoil within 10 rounds, if they didn't jam first. Remembering this gun's pop-culture fame, I thought, "Crockett traded a Sig for this?" Parts guns? Nope, we checked. Great guns that weren't? Yep. Haunted?
We're still cleaning the ectoplasm from the range bags.
