    ZEV made a new kind of Glock

    I don't know if y'all are familiar with ZEV Technologies but they have been making a bunch of Glock accessories for years. Well now they have made their own pistol. It takes a lot of their Glock parts and uses Glock mags but looks like some amalgamation of a Glock and Sig P250.

    for-sale Ruger 44 Magnum Carbine Deerstalker

    It needs to be in my home. Unfortunately, a family emergency has me on a buying freeze.
  4. One of Franklin Armory's offerings at SHOT Show this year will be this thing. https://www.recoilweb.com/franklin-armory-announces-the-providence-145108.html?fbclid=IwAR3vB28LQzxZAjipSLo2qkQzVU9eO0ytx-4JLvpCsLZuU6Fm8lp2F8JOlcE Check out the link. I'm not sure what to make of it, but at least its not as dumb as a barrel with straight rifling.

    Franklin Armory Providence ("Non-semiautomatic")

    A double action revolver uses mechanical action to load the next round. But that isn't considered semi-automatic. Now I also understand that a revolver doesn't eject the spent case. But still. Like I said above, I think the order of the action will determine how this is classified.
  6. I don't feel like this is enough. He killed two people. I probably wouldn't feel this way had he not sped up to 72 miles per hour. This is awful.
  7. Here is a very fascinating read about repurposing calvary blades into fighting knives for WWII. Also the campaign to gather knives and send to troops. https://blog.knife-depot.com/wwii-demand-for-blades-led-to-knife-crowdsourcing/?fbclid=IwAR0F9-vVRPWBnGI7tbxEaAB1vVT1wYZu8RwGgGfUXaqu8i9E5JO7oM2OYDo
  8. I noticed that too. I wonder if a furniture company was nearby, or if the company doing it also made those before the war.

    Franklin Armory Providence ("Non-semiautomatic")

    So ive been thinking about that a lot. There are two ways that I can see this functioning. Pull the trigger, it’s a short pull like a bolt action and the round goes off. Continue pulling and it ejects and loads the next round. I think they could make a good case that is semi automatic. pulling the trigger cycles the bolt and loads the round and then releases the firing pin. I think this is closer to a double action revolver and they would have a hard time classifying it as semi auto without also reclassifying da revolvers.

    Culver's 9113 Kingston Pike Knoxville.

    I tend to agree. I think the OP was actually the party in the wrong here. As much as I think its important for us to be able to carry, I think its equally important that we respect the wishes of privately owned places we visit. They made their stance clear. That should have been the end of it.
  11. Thats awesome. I'll sight it in for you.

    Cop shoots partner in back

    What really aggravates me about this is that they called it an accident and the guy is back at work. First off, its negligence. Not an accident, its negligence. And secondly, he should be required to take a ton of firearms classes before being put back on the street. Also, its interesting that he starts screaming what happened, what happened after it happened. I don't think he even realized that his gun had fired.

    Cop shoots partner in back

    You said it was an accident. Beebee said it was negligence and you agreed. Which is it? I'm of the opinion that there is no such thing as an accident. Only negligence.

    Ruger SR9/40/45 family is no more

    For 2019, Ruger has decided to cease production of the SR family of striker fired pistols. Personally, I think they made a big mistake. I guess they wanted to push the American but I think the SR would have done better if they released it in a "pro" model without the safety.
  16. This was kind of leaked a couple of months ago but now its official as its on their site. https://www.magpul.com/firearms-accessories/magpul-scorpion-series They are releasing a 35 round mag for 20 bucks, a grip for 25 and a mag release paddle for 25. I'll probably buy all three once they are available.

  18. I find this to be a fascinating research project. I understand that the results could potentially be used by the other side but this research could also lead to an increase in development of recoil mitigation devices. I look forward to seeing what comes out of this. https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2019/01/09/firearm-recoil-traumatic-brain-injury/

    Cop shoots partner in back

    Take the uniform off of the guy. Now how do you feel about it? Just an average Joe walking through his house with his gun in his hand and he shoots his wife or kid in the back. Do your feelings change? Cause mine don't. The only standard I'm holding him to are the four rules of gun safety.
  20. I have no problem with HP. I have owned a C9, twice. Given the opportunity, I'd throw another in the safe. I'm interested to see what they come out with.

    Ruger SR9/40/45 family is no more

    Yeah I removed the mag disconnect immediately. Its never been shot with it installed.

    Ruger SR9/40/45 family is no more

    Sales tanked because they brought out the Security 9 at a lower price. And I've never understood the complaint about the LCI. I never notice it when shooting.
  23. Wow. I don't know what to say about either of these. At least with the CNN chick, she tried to apologize, even if she did give some crappy excuses. Wow.

    Ruger SR9/40/45 family is no more

    This sums up my feelings exactly.

    Cop shoots partner in back

    Sorry if anyone took this as cop bashing or about cops in any way. The story really has nothing to do with him being a cop. The only reason that is even relevant is that he was at work when this occurred. Imagine if this was a husband wife pair that were clearing their house after they heard a noise. Imagine how the conversation would be different. Nothing I said would change. Do y’all remember when Tex shot himself and we talked about that video. Well this is the Same thing.
