My kind of weapon – Waterford Crystal. The only thing it can hurt is your wallet.
It’s amazing what those Irish glass craftsmen can come up with! I agree with you – this is the only kind of weapon I’d ever want around me!

This creation blew me away. They are definitely true craftsmen. 🙂
Ha! perfect! Did you go to the Waterford factory and did you buy any crystal? I bought a beautiful little rose bowl when we went there.
Yes, we had a great tour. I bought two vases, one for myself and one for my daughter. 🙂

Wow! That’s beautiful, Judy. I’d be scared to know the cost.
We saw it on the tour and not in the store so I don’t know how much it would cost, but I’m guessing it is way, way out of my budget. The artist’s skill required to complete it amazed me. 🙂
WOW !! 🙂
Amazing detail in that. What these people can do truly is art.
Yowzer! What a beautiful creation. The details are amazing. I don’t do guns, but I’m afraid if someone picked it up and dropped it, I would have to shoot ’em!!! Lol!
Another “Wow” from me. My husband collected Waterford for years before I met him, but he doesn’t have one of these. Do you shot glass animals with it?
I am as wordless as Wednesday.
What a strange thing to make in crystal! It makes me a little uneasy, to be honest, like it’s elevating a weapon to a piece of art.
It was kind of shocking to see it displayed in crystal.
This is a unique crystal creation and loved your message, Judy. I think being careful with guns is important. I am not against guns but emphasize with my grandies, I think hunting for food is okay, not for “sport.” 🙂
When my grandson was little, he went around as my younger brothers had done in the 1960’ssaying “Bang, bang!” (Even saying “You’re dead!”) My brothers were influenced by Westerns, but not sure where my grandson came up with this, maybe Elmer Fudd hunting “wabbits?” (rabbits) I told him never to point his finger or stick at people and animals were for food not just to kill. I hope this isn’t too much to include her but wanted you to know this caused me to really ponder the subject of guns. . .
Never too much. 🙂 Yes, westerns certainly had us all playing cowboys and indians oblivious of any real problems in society. Today, it is certainly a different thing altogether. I have a good friend who hunts for food, and I have no issue with that. I also don’t take issue with someone who chooses to keep a gun in their own house for protection. But, then you get to guns being carried on the street, in the buildings, in the cars, and in my personal opinion it gets out of hand. I also don’t understand the need for individuals to have the same guns that our military use. But, then I don’t have the finances the NRA has to lobby their desires. 🙂
Limerick sounds wonderful. I like the streetscapes as well as the doors.
It is beautiful! My family lives in Michigan and many of them still hunt and they eat what they hunt which I agree is OK. BUT none of them ever used AK47s to deer hunt! I feel strongly we need better gun control.
I never understood hunting for sport ,but I did get they were looking for a challenge with regard to their skills. What skills are needed once you load up an AD47? You just mow animals or people down. That I really don’t get.
