    My miss was a brain fart on the Colt question. Their answer was right. My coffee was weak this morning or the moon was in the wrong sign of the Zodiak or something.

    I think the questions and answers were well researched. Some of the comments were probably not vetted with the researchers. .... I will [question] the comment after the answer on:

    Question 21. Which semi-automatic weapon with a large-capacity magazine became infamous after appearing in surveillance footage of the Columbine massacre?
    Correct Answer!
    [true]A frame taken from a video surveillance camera in the Columbine cafeteria clearly shows Dylan Klebold carrying a [blippetyblip] in one gloved hand.[/true] [false] In the aftermath of the shooting, the [blippetyblip] became a potent symbol for the gun-control lobby and was included in the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons ban.[/false]

    False because the Columbine Massacre was 20 Apr 1999 in the fifth year of the 1994 AWB and the ninth year of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990. That comment makes me wonder how many people would think the Assault Weapon Ban and the Gun Free School Zones Act were a response to the Columbine High School Massacre?

    I don't feel too bad about not knowing the details of a failed attempt to assassinate president Ford...

    Should probably have known HundK beat ol' Gaston to the polymer-framed handgun, though...

    And as for the dueling pistols question... well that all depends on the date, doesn't? I've seen plenty of percussion dueling sets...
    I'm a skinny, rather geeky, over-educated Englishman living in the small-town MidWest who believes in the 2nd Amendment and the RKBA... my existence messes with people's stereotypes :-)
