...no, the slapper is the sock as Walter mentioned....

Yeah, that's why I related it in my mind to a slapjack:

Effective weapon. When we lived in San Antonio, there had been a rash of car jackings so my dad carried a weighted end of a pool cue right next to the driver's seat--pretty much the same thing but less flexible.

Soz. I forgot about the spoilers.
Will try to remember.
Don't worry. I'm less than 100 pages left, so near the end.

And you didn't give away the ending. :)

I went page by page, wanting to see where the a Happy Slapper was first mentioned and how.

Hodge is thinking of taking one gun, then thinks of the other, then settles on the Happy Slapper. Since I had no idea what that is, I assumed it was his name for the gun. (People name their cars, I assume some name their guns too.)

And I should also add, it was the combination of Thing One, Thing Two, and Happy Slapper, that was frustrating me. Since the last is a term familiar to everyone else,and the Things are cutesy names made up by one character, it all makes sense and fits and I bow to THE KING.

Happy Slapper - Ball bearings in a sock that is used to hit people. Thing One - Brady's Computer ( the line of of them) Thing Two - The remote control that grabs people security lock information and also has the toggle switch for the explosives.
