    Usually from a-holes snapping the cylinder into the frame by flicking their wrist like they are in a bad cop movie.

    Your weapon was not made for you to look cool.

    Considering where it would bend, I shudder to think about what it's doing to the forcing cone, and I imagine there's off-centre flame erosion. Crap. It would take lot of snapping to do that to a K-22, though, I think. People might snicker at my old .455 wobbly Webley but you can't do that to it.

    It would take an act of God to do that for me, anyway, but I can't help snapping mine. It's a kershaw "assisted opening" Rainbow Leek. I saw it on a business trip in California and couldn't resist it: It's too pretty. Unlike its owner

    Do you find that helps you with the ladies? Compensating for your looks with a pretty knife?

    Sadly, nothing will help in that regard. What it does help with, though, is that for some reason, my Leatherman (Tii, pocket clip) wasn't regarded as politically correct around the office but the less useful, prettier one is ok. You figure it out.

    Wouldn't flicking the action all the time make it eventually wear out?

    Probably, but in this case it's built to open by pushing a tab on the backblade and a spring does the rest, pushing the blade open until the liner lock engages. I expect that the top of the grip will start to wear, long before the rest of the knife is done.
