Tired of Sledge's constant interference with their planned crimes, a gang of thieves plots to get him out of the way prior to attempting a major silver theft. With inside help from an unscrupulous police psychiatrist, they manage to steal his cherished .44 Magnum service revolver. Sledge is emasculated without the gun and suffers a complete loss of confidence. He is inconsolable when he learns that his gun was used in the silver theft, until a slip of the tongue by the psychiatrist reveals that the doctor may actually be in league with the thieves. Sledge and Dori trail the psychiatrist to a metalworking facility and learn that their assumption was correct, but Sledge must make a painful decision when the gang leader tosses the cherished weapon into a blast furnace in an attempt to destroy it permanently.

Weisbart: You don't like psychiatrists, do you, Hammer?
Sledge Hammer: The last guy to point a finger at me ended up LIMPING through the Yellow Pages.
Weisbart: Hammer, we must start out by trusting one another.
Sledge Hammer: Trust you? You sound like a Nazi.
Weisbart: Well, thank you very much, but enough about me. Why don't you just make yourself comfortable? Uh, perhaps you want to take off your gun?
Sledge Hammer: I never take off my gun.
Weisbart: Now, surely you must take it off sometime. I mean, you wouldn't sleep with your gun.
Sledge Hammer: Says who?

No gun no glory
2 May 2018 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

An unusually flat episode (I think the villains are to thank for that) that sees Sledge having to do the job without his treasured Magnum. Rasche makes the most of it, playing Hammer at his lowest and wracked with self-doubt - but the best scene is Hammer's almost slapstick conversation with a bartender. It's a memorable exchange.
