No, a typewriter. And not so new. It's from the 30's.
I have a thing about tools I use, be they woodworking, guns, or typewriters, or what have you. They should be younger than my grandfather (1906) but older than my father (1938).
Yeah, the bug has bit. A SECOND manual typewriter. This one a Remington Noiseless portable with Deco design.
It comes with a case. Portables are often pristine because they are packed away for 60 years INSIDE the case. As long as they are out of the basement flood...
I like Remington only because my grandfathers desktop typewriter was their model 17. Oh, and it was Remington RAND and that's like the greatest Objectivist author of the 20th Century. Oh and I find the idea of the Noiseless mechanism cool.
Oh, plus 'Gun'. Remington. Duh. I'll probably typecast at some point.
I need to build a Unabomber style shack in my backyard now to write my manifesto.
It was bound to happen (just like last year) - After record NICS checks month after month (thanks, Obama), January NICS checks drop sharply.
