Re: Legal ghost guns

these are definately a buyer beware. yes is "untraceable" but the companies producing these DIY lowers are using inferior metals. Several reports have surfaced in the training groups i am in of them catastrophically failing due to inferiors metals. neat concept, its a shame that they cant ...

Re: Racking the Slide

it mostly depends on the gun and what i am doing. i will use the "old" method to lock the slide back on an empty chamber. I typically use the "new" method when checking to see if a pistol is loaded. to me, there is less vision obstruction when using the "new" method. I ...

Re: Winchester® Defender Tactical Safes

full disclosure, i dont own one but i used to work for gander mountain and sold a fair number of liberty safes. this looks just like a dressed up liberty to be honest. it has a slightly better fire rating than a comparable liberty (1400 degrees at 60 minutes vs 1200 degrees for a liberty). the locki...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

you will see in this video that your statement of 100% failure rate is debunked. So where is the line? Is 95% failure rate acceptable? Is a simple majority enough to remove concern? It's still close enough to 100% that this magazine, who accepts advertiser dollars from Sig, would produce a video to...

With the Sig however, drop the gun 100 times in that same angle and you will get 100 discharges. I cannot see how you can equate this with mechanical failure?

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

i wonder how many times a dropped gun will land on that specific spot. Doesn't matter. The fact that it is in any way capable of firing when dropped is simply unacceptable in the modern world. A gun being 100% drop safe should be as standard as a car with seat belts. no firearm is 100% impervious f...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

the government contract model has the upgraded fire control group which will be retrofitted into all prexisting p320 models which is apparently "safe" I think not only did they drop the ball on the original design, but the fix is a bullshit fix. They basically made the trigger lighter so ...

Re: Dallas PD finds Sig 320 unfit for duty

In all reality, any hand gun could malfunction and fire when dropped, even the beloved glock. This story really seems to be missing something. I've heard of the 229 equinox recall, what other agencies have returned the p320s? Not returned necessarily, but one such example is the ATF determined that...

do you use a weapon mounted light? I don't; I keep a light on my night stand, but I wouldn't utilize it except in a rare circumstance. When you wake up with fully dilated eyes, I see a flashlight as more of a liability than an asset because your eyes are fully dilated but the intruder's are not. A ...
