Power On

Being in love is a very strange thing. Your thoughts constantly drift towards this other person, no matter what you’re doing. You could be reaching for a glass in the cupboard or brushing your teeth or listening to someone tell a story, and your mind will just start drifting towards their face, their hair, the way they smell, wondering what they’ll wear, and what they’ll say the next time they see you. And on top of the constant dream state you’re in, your stomach feels like it’s connected to a bungee cord, and it bounces and bounces around for hours until it finally lodges itself next to your heart.

Browning Hi-Power

Famed pistol that has been adopted by many law enforcement and military forces around the world. This example can be identified by the yellow tape on the slide as an early Israeli issued pistol. A bunch of these surplus Hi-Powers were brought in from Israel and show signs of heavy wear and tear but they are collectable. The yellow tape supposedly was meant to identify plain clothes officers as friendlies when IDF would be called in to back them up if a terrorist attack happened. Yellow tape on the slide means that guy is on your side. (GRH)
