It is also allegedly... He either did or didnt.

What I find interesting is that in this day and age, when everyone has at least 1 cell phone, and all cell phones have cameras, there is not one image of him with his pistol in hand.

Regardless of all of that, he is an idiot if he did use his "pistol" for that purpose. A Glock with a laser aiming device attached to it uses a 1913 picatinny rail to attach the laser... meaning the laser if needed for a presentation can be removed in a few seconds.

being a stroke victim as stated and having an unsteady hand... a Glock is the last thing he should be carrying as they have no safety other than a trigger safety. He should carry a 1911 which has a dove tail safety AND a thumb safety.

US gun magazine producer to leave Colo. over gun laws

One of the largest producers of gun magazines in the U.S. is leaving Colorado because of its new gun laws and moving its operations to Texas and Wyoming.

Magpul Industries, based in Erie, Colorado, announced Thursday that it was moving its production, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne and its headquarters to Texas, making good on a vow it made to leave Colorado during last year's heated gun control debate.

In 2013, the company took out a newspaper ad stating it would leave should the state pass a ban on high-capacity magazines and add-ons for semi-automatic rifles.

The Democratic-led Colorado legislature and Gov. John Hickenlooper last year enacted a new law prohibiting the sale of gun magazines with more than 15 rounds. That and other new gun restrictions also led to the recall ouster of two Democratic state senators.

The company says its corporate headquarters will likely be in north-central Texas but an exact location hasn't been determined yet.

I am glad to see Magpul back up its statements from last year.
Magpul Industries directly employs 200+ people, supports another 400 supply-chain jobs, and contributes over $85 million annually to Colorado’s economy.

The Firing Pin (Gun thread)

1.4M for a sculpture, not .01 to mental help for people that use weapons for the wrong reason or fear weapons for no reason.

This is not the Poli -Sci area Smash. That article would better be served in a place to discuss who does or doesn't feel a certain way about weapons than in an area about weapons them selves.

Re: The Firing Pin (Gun thread)

Since I don't have an area I may have covered this before, if not enjoy.

Misconceptions about home defense and the "mil-spec" tag or anything tagged as military.

"Mil-Spec"
If you are looking to buy a weapon please ignore the "mil-spec" that it may be described as having. This does not mean it is better, I repeat, that tag has zero to do with quality, or accuracy. This subject is debated quite often in many weapons forums and generally its the ex-military telling the civilian he is wrong in thinking "mil-Spec" adds value.

Mil-Spec = Mass production specifications for military weapons, the tolerances are actually looser because weapons meant for our military have to be able to tolerate mass production errors and harsh environment situations and still be able to function reliably. <--- Do not pay extra for this cr4p as most people do.

Military ammunition - Contrary to popular belief Military 5.56 in green tip penetrator(xm855) or FMJ are not designed for stopping power. Military ammo is not designed to kill for the most part it is designed to injure which brings more targets as aid. Don't use this for home defense.

IMHO do not use a pistol or rifle for home defense period. .45 ACP will penetrate 10 walls and .223/5.56 will penetrate 6 walls. Meaning if you miss, that round will go through that number of standard home walls before the round stops. Go shot gun with buck shot and not slugs. If you want to carry or keep something in your vehicle legally I would recommend a 10m 1911 style as 10m has incredible stopping power and the 1911 platform has 2 safeties.. generally a beaver tail meaning the pistol has to be gripped to shoot and a thumb safety so if both are not functioned the weapon will not fire.

As you can see from the ballistic gel there is very little difference between 9mm through 45 ACP.


When buying optics/scopes for distance shooting. If you are shooting at range stay away from Mil-Dot military scopes. You will spend more time learning how to use and read the reticle than shooting. Military snipers used a fixed 10x scope with mil-dat but they have had years of training. Again, Military scopes are built and selected for durability and target acquisition by trained shooters.
