And Lo the Astros Said, "Let There Be Guns"

You wanted guns, you got `em.

As expected, the Astros announced that the pistols are back on the Colt .45 throwbacks being worn to celebrate the team's 50th season, now that Major League Baseball has reversed its ban.

"I think it's a great jersey and was a great tie-in for a new franchise," former Colt .45/Astro Bob Aspromonte said in the team's announcement.

The jerseys will be worn for Friday home games, and versions of them might just possibly be available for purchase by fans.
