Born September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California, Dave Mustaine is the founder of the heavy metal band Megadeth. He is the former lead guitarist of rival band Metallica. Shortly after being booted from Metallica in 1983 for drug related problems as well as personality conflicts among the Metallica band members, he created his band. Dave is known for his exceptional musical gifts. His skills in rhythm as well as lead guitar and vocals are astounding. Although Megadeth has never been quite as popular a heavy metal act as Metallica (15,000,000 albums vs. Metallica's 90,000,000), Mustaine still prides himself on his music. In Metallica's "Some Kind of Monster" movie documentary, he pays a visit to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich, and expresses his regrets about leaving the band, telling Ulrich, "If I could go back to that day and change it, I would." He recently renewed his faith in Christianity and is a devoted spiritualist.
Megadeth and Dave Mustaine might not be quite as popular as Metallica, but they have every bit of talent.

A Myrdraal is a type of monster that is from Robert Jordan's book series, The Wheel of Time. Myrddraal are the backbone of the Shadowspawn army of the Dark One. They have different names in many lands, such as Fade, The Eyless, Halfman, Shadowmen, and Neverborn. Myths say they stand twenty feet tall and disappear when viewed from the side. In actuality, Myrddraal usually stand around seven or eight feet tall, have no eyes, and have skin that is pale white. Their eylessness does not hinder their sight; they see excellent in the day and even better in the night. Myrddraal have a talent that allows them to disappear into shadows, and move to another shadow far away without actually having to pass across the physical distance between the two places. When not using this skill, the Myrddraal move with a serpent-like grace. Wind does not touch them, and therefore their cloaks will not move, even in the heaviest of winds. Their only weakness is running water, which will stop any of them dead in their tracks. Their gaze inspires fear into any man or creature, and hence the saying, "The gaze of The Eyeless is fear." This allows them to be an excellent commander of Trollocs. Myrddraal also have the ability to link with a number of Trollocs, taking control of their minds and their will. However, the death of the commanding Myrdrrall means the simultaneous death of the linked Trollocs. Myrddraal also do not use the same crude weapons of their Trolloc counterparts. They use pitch black blades that are made in Thakan'dar, which is near the entrance to the Pit of Doom. Each one of these specially made swords is dipped into a tainted pool in Shayol Ghul and is then used to kill a man or woman, which infuses their soul into the blade, making it more powerful. A wound from one of these swords is almost always fatal unless healed with the One Power.

"Myrddraal are the foundation of the Shadowspawn."

The sixgun is a revolver pistol having a rotating cylinder capable of carrying six rounds. Probably the most popular sixgun is the Colt Single Action Army (also known as the Colt Peacemaker), chambered in a .45 Long Colt caliber cartridge.

These types of guns were commonly carried by Old West cowboys and gunfighters, but were made popular in movies and entertainment by people like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. In western movies, one can typically see these guns (pictured as single action revolvers) being shot from the hip, having their hammers "fanned" to increase the fire rate; however, there were actually a lot more double action revolvers in the Old West than have been pictured in Hollywood movies.
An original Colt Single Action Army in decent condition can fetch a very fair price from a pistol or gun enthusiast.

Eli Wallach's character "Tuco The Rat" in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly constructed his own sixgun from various parts of other pistols in the movie.
