What's a "Viper Pistol"?

I'll admit, I'm a little slow this week, I tire easily and I converse like a an Alsheimer's patient. I need some info, what's a Viper Pistol?

I'm perusing the threads and I see a sales notice. This could be several things, bear with me.

First, is an obvious one. There's a company called 'Viper' that builds pistols. Duh.

Two, it is possible that the pistol is trimmed with a snakeskin quality. After all, the Ford Mustang has a horse on the grill.

Three, this could be a new product, that being a pistol to kill Vipers. I can see this catching on like Gangbusters at a pancake brunch in Arizona. The old gun magazines I read had several border officers report that when they dismounted their horses or got out of a squad car they often heard a snake's rattle. One officer said he shot every snake he saw. Clearly he had a dedicated 'Viper Pistol.'

This confusion sent me to BladeHq. I asked the brain trust over there for a 'Viper Switchblade.' I'm a baby boomer, and as such, we jump on fads.

After all, I had a Hula Hoop. Ergo, I want a Viper Switchblade, and I'll get one before you do...

Could it really be:? "Hoppe's Boresnake Viper Pistol and Revolver Bore Cleaner" that you are talking about?

Yes, but as an English minor, he uses an adjective which morphs into a direct object.

Ergo, you could own a viper, drive a Viper, or have a Viper-like temper.

And I dislike salesmen. Yes, I know, I are one...

(BTW, your knife arrives tomorrow, Wednesday if you don't see this today).

...may be the HK VP9 "viper". It's a high quality striker fired pistol, really well rated. HK makes good stuff, German engineering...

Dunno about those viper pistols. I once tried to "vipe" with one. Left me walking funny for at least a month.....

Ahhh, you viped when you should have vaped.

Common rookie mistake. While my only real addiction is turkey Subway sandwiches on flat bread, Madison has had rare and singular folks actually burning a heady variant of tetrahydrocannabinol hemp, with which an old girl friend and I used to play "pirate and slave girl."

...then after a few months lifting weights, I no longer fit in the dress...
