Keith Richards is on the cover of the October issue of Another Man magazine.... In the interview, he discusses his state during the height of his heroin addiction... in which he figured he needed a gun for protection...
"The first one I bought was a Luger I picked up in the East Village in New York City.
"After that I went into rifles for a bit just because they go further.
"I've carried a piece or two now and again — most of that was to do with the heroin business and being involved in, like, scoring. Especially in America, it bodes you well to be armed.
"A .38 Smith and Wesson Airweight revolver — that is the fucking gun. No safety on it."
