A Saskatoon resident got rather an interesting surprise this week. Instead of the mp3 player he ordered from a US pawn shop on eBay, he got a .22 calibre Smith and Wesson pistol instead. He did the right thing and called the cops, instead of trying to ship it back himself. I can't help but suspect it made it thru whatever Canada Customs centre it passed thru because the inspectors were more interested in interfering with shipments to lesbian book stores than actual dangerous goods. Canada Customs is rather well known for the arbitrary manner in which it seizes publications.

Speaking of pistols if you simply must have a very expensive pistol to impress your friends with, consider the Korth semiauto pistol. List price? A mere $5,954 US.
