$3 DOLLAR PISTOL ($108,000 – $120,000)

Not a term heard often these days … unless you’re hanging around Match and Fable’s offices!
One of its meanings refers to something being ‘hot’ … as in, highly attractive or desirable.

For example, “Match and Fable is hotter than a 3-dollar pistol”!
Where did the term originate?

Well, back in the mid-1800’s … gun manufacturers like; Remington, Smith & Wesson and Winchester were selling a boat load of pistols. As is often the case … counterfeiters recognized an opportunity to capitalize on the opportunity and turn a quick buck.

To keep their prices super low … their manufacturing processes and standards were naturally, extremely shoddy.

Mismatched parts resulted in misaligned chambers and barrels … causing a slew of problems when fired! In fact, in some cases … these pistols exploded in the shooter’s hand!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … not much.

That said … this role is hotter than a 3-dollar pistol … and won’t last long!
