Full Report — M17-M18 Safety Failures

There is a bulletin floating around various US Military commands about problems being seen with the new service pistol. In particular, they are seeing failures of the thumb safety mechanism.  If I read the report correctly, it appears the external thumb safety still functions, but an internal firing pin block is being sheared off somewhere around 5000 to 6000 rounds. …

Steyr GB Pistol

Been looking for one of these for quite a while, but the prices on the auction sites never seemed appropriate to what their real worth is.  And it took a while, but my persistence paid off. Found one of these sitting in a gun store on the East Coast. Priced cheaper than a new Glock.  This video is just a …

They Won’t Stop

It never stops. Even one more regulation is just added on top of 90 years of “It’s just”.  The biggest mistake that was ever made in protecting the modern semi-auto AR-15 is the banning of new machine guns. Why? Something has to be #1. And once you eliminate that, the previous #2 becomes the new #1 to be targeted. You …

2015 Porsche Carrera S

So…many of you probably don’t know this, but I am kind of a low-key car guy. What I mean by that is I like cars. I pay attention to cars. But my interest in cars doesn’t rise to the level of my firearms involvement.  I guess putting that another way, if I was forced to choose between one or the …

FBI Glock 17PM

7.5 Swiss Estate Ammo

Some friends were helping a family out with the management of a large firearms estate. Word came down that the owners would allow us to buy some ammo before it went public.  Obviously I had a few calibers in mind. Mostly not standard stuff. BTW…when I use the phrase “non-standard” ammo, I am referring to non-NATO calibers.  When word came …

Stopping Power is Bullshit

Once again we see video proof of something most handgun owners simply choose to ignore. I don’t know if it’s because of Hollywood films or marketing by the firearms industry.  But consider a few random points.  Caliber 40 S&W  Range is almost zero.  Ammo is certainly HP.  Rounds fired, 12.  Rounds connected, 12. Perp: Kevin Costlow, 52.  Perp background: high-end …
