It’s been the subject of endless investigative reports, the allegedly defective trigger on the Remington 700 rifle. At any moment a judge will decide whether or not to accept the agreement Remington has made with plaintiffs in the case.

This is one of those cases where it’s hard to trust the media, due to the fact that they utterly hate all firearms manufacturers, but there is evidence indicating that some triggers are in fact defective. The scope of the problem is up for debate, but it’s hard to argue that the trigger system at issue is a good one.

Here’s the low-down on the case.

U.S. District Judge Ortrie Smith of Kansas City said he’ll decide within 30 days whether to accept the settlement affecting 7.5 million Remington rifles.

Under the settlement, the company has offered to replace the trigger mechanism on most of its popular Model 700 rifles – if the owners ask for the retrofit.

But a Montana man who’s been fighting 16 years for a recall of the rifles, saying the trigger mechanism is defective and that Remington knew about it, has urged the judge to reject the settlement – as have attorneys general from nine states and the District of Columbia.

Richard Barber of Willow Creek, whose 9-year-old son, Gus, was killed in 2000 by a Model 700 rifle that fired without the trigger being pulled, during a family hunting trip, has filed objections to the settlement.

Barber says Remington should not be allowed to continue to say nothing is wrong with the rifles – a statement he says discourages gun owners from getting the defective product fixed.

At a hearing earlier this week, Judge Smith also noted that in the two years since the settlement was announced, only 22,000 rifle owners have filed claims – a claims rate of 0.29 percent.

CNBC reported that Smith said he’s concerned about the “exceedingly small” number of claims, because it seems “inconceivable to me that someone would have a firearm that might injure a loved one and not have it fixed.”

Barber also has said Remington should replace the trigger mechanisms on older Model 600 rifles, instead of offering only a $12.50 voucher for Remington products, as part of the settlement.

If Smith rejects the settlement, the case could go to trial.

Remington agreed to the settlement, but has continued to say publicly that nothing is wrong with its popular Model 700 and other 700-series bolt-action rifles. The settlement also covers some Model 600 rifles, the Seven, the Sportsman 78 and XP-100.

While the media has been using the case to paint the entire firearms industry as evil, it may actually be the case that some triggers are in fact defective.

If this judge rejects the settlement, it’s going to cost Remington a small fortune. However, ironically it may actually benefit the firearms industry if Remington gets hit hard financially over this lawsuit. That’s because gun control advocates would love to use this case to try to push new laws about manufacturer liability. If the existing laws work the way they are supposed to, progressives will have a tough time demanding new laws.

File this one under “uh duh”!

As you probably know the “Hearing Protection Act” was reintroduced to congress to remove silencers from the National Firearms Act (NFA).

Obama Admin’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) also found out there are not one but TWO things silencers can be beneficial for. You may guess the one, but maybe not the other? Check it out:

First, Silencers Best Option For Reducing Gun Range Noise

In the first “duh” entry — after noting that the noise on outdoor test ranges in California was particularly high — CDC found this:

The only potentially effective noise control method to reduce students’ or instructors’ noise exposure from gunfire is through the use of noise suppressors that can be attached to the end of the gun barrel. However, some states do not permit civilians to use suppressors on firearms.

Well, yeah.

Now let’s not go full retard and think we need handguns with silencers hanging off them as a requirement (I feel like that would be the next Government step because “logic”), but yes, encouraging silencer use by making them 100% legal like any other non-registered gun part would be perfect. I would GLADLY shoot silenced rifles if given the choice.

Also …

Second, CDC Finds Quarter of Americans Have Hearing Loss Because of Noise (Solution? Silencers)

Along with that, as Americas1stFreedom notes:

A CDC study recently found that a staggering 40 million American adults—including one-fourth of people 20-69—have lost some hearing because of noise. Even more noteworthy, 53 percent of those with hearing loss claimed to have no occupational exposure to excessive noise—a number which likely includes many shooters and hunters.

These numbers not only uncover a national epidemic—they also indicate that the deregulation of suppressors, as outlined in the Hearing Protection Act, should be regarded less as a matter of politics and more as an urgent matter of public health.

Given that noises of over 140 decibels can cause permanent hearing loss with hearing protection—and that an unsuppressed .223 rifle produces about 165 decibels—the use of suppressors (which reduce gunshot noise by 20-35 decibels) could, when combined with regular hearing protection, significantly reduce the longstanding prevalence of hearing loss in the shooting community.

I mean, none of this should be news guys.

This is common sense.

Conclusion? Support The Hearing Protection Act In Congress Again

This isn’t the first time that a pro-silencer bill has been in congress. They normally don’t pass. This one has a lot of support and with a new Trump presidency a lot of people are hoping it will.

As I’ve said before, even anti-gun places like Europe are KILLING America when it comes to silencer use. Trump’s son knows it, let’s see if he can convince dad too.

After talking to some people who work in the silencer industry, as the video points out below, it might be a WHILE before this bill gets passed (if at all) … and more importantly because people don’t realize how complicated our Government is … that just because we have a republican majority, it’s not a guarantee (at all) it will ever even make it to the President’s desk. Good little fact filled vid:

When it comes down to it, support the bill and lets dismantle the NFA entirely before Trump’s first term is over (a gal can dream can’t she?)

Elections have consequences. Law-abiding gun owners across America keep reaping the rewards as a consequence of the 2017 election. The 2017 windfall now includes a solid defender of the Second Amendment as Attorney General of the United States.

Jeff Sessions could be the best friend gun owners ever had in the Department of Justice. The NRA made voting to confirm Sessions a part of it’s scorecard for legislators. Good luck getting an A rating from the NRA if you didn’t vote to confirm Sessions. That means that “pro-gun” Democrats will virtually all be taking a hit in their NRA ratings.

Here’s announcement from the NRA celebrating the Sessions confirmation:

“The NRA and our five million members would like to congratulate Jeff Sessions on his confirmation as attorney general. He will make America a safer place by prosecuting violent criminals while protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.”

Here’s how the NRA put the pressure on Democrats to vote for Sessions (from Politico):

Some of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2018 — including Sens. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Jon Tester (Mont.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) — have expressed skepticism about Sessions but have not committed to voting for or against him yet. All three senators have enjoyed relatively favorable (for Democrats) treatment in the past from the NRA, which spent more than $50 million during the 2016 election, mostly supporting Trump and Republican Senate candidates.

The NRA endorsed Donnelly for reelection to his old House seat in 2010, and he and Tester had A and A- ratings, respectively, from the NRA during their 2012 Senate runs. The NRA barely spent any money on independent-expenditure ads opposing them or Heitkamp that year, according to Federal Election Commission records.

The new TV ad, backed by a six-figure ad national buy on Fox News and digital outlets, says that Sessions is “an attorney general who supports police” amidst dwindling respect for law enforcement.

“We were raised to respect law enforcement. They put their lives on the line for us. But now, cops are attacked. Gunned down in cold blood,” a narrator says in the ad. “[Sessions] will get criminals off our streets. And protect the Second Amendment.”

 

Ultimately, Joe Manchin, of West Virginia was the only Democrat to vote for Sessions. However, Manchin’s vote was important since the final tally was a close 52-47. The pressure the NRA put on supposedly “pro-gun” Democrats who voted against Sessions will continue to weigh on them in the future. Joe Donnelly, Jon Tester, and Heidi Heitkamp just voted against one of the best supporters of our right to bear arms ever, the NRA isn’t going to forget that, regardless of whatever other policy differences they had with Attorney General Sessions.

The mythical 8m3 bullet has been a scarce commodity, because, it’s a 7.62X39 round that actually expands upon impact. Now Tula is mass producing the bullet for service with it’s steel case ammo. Up until this point, the crappy hollow points from Tula and Wolf have been pretty worthless. For all practical purposes, they were no different from the fmj rounds, except that they seemed to be slightly less accurate.

All that changes with the re-introduction of the 8m3. The Firearms Blog explains the significance of this development:

There are a great number of “hollow point” loads available in 7.62x39mm from the various Russian brands but, with very few exceptions, these projectiles behave exactly like full metal jacket in tissue. There are a few American loads that have excellent terminal performance, but these are far more expensive.There are Russian 124 gr and 154 gr soft points available, and these do generally tend to expand well, but they are not reliable and some users have reported feeding problems with soft points. What’s worse, Russian ammo makers seem to change components more often than Bruce Jenner changes his mind. You never really know what projectile will be loaded in the ammunition you buy, unless it is actually labeled with the specific projectile design, like Western ammo.

That’s where the 8M3 “effect” bullet from Ulyanovsk comes in. Loads made using this hollow point bullet with internal scoring on the jacket developed a formidable reputation for brutal terminal performance. Unfortunately, the last lots using this bullet were imported over a decade ago. Russian ammo makers switch components at will and without notice so there are endless rumors that a particular lot of Tula or Silver Bear is being loaded the the 8M3 bullet, but these rumors never seem to pan out.

Now Tula is making what appears to be real deal 8m3 ammo. Testing thus far proves the brutality of this stuff:

Now you can practice with the same ammo you use for self-defense or hunting. Not that there’s a ton of people hunting with the 7.62X39 chambered rifles, but now, an effective cheap survival weapon has an equally affordable survival bullet to go with it.

That $300 Yugo SKS just got a heck of a lot more attractive!

A recently leaked white paper could be great news for the Second Amendment. The report from the ATF is full of ideas to reduce the regulatory burden on law abiding citizens. Under President Trump the ATF moved in a totally new direction. Since many members of congress want to eliminate the ATF entirely, this leaked document might be an attempt to save the agency.

That’s the power of last election, now that Republicans control congress and the presidency, agencies like the ATF will feel the pressure to change their ways or be destroyed.

Look at this list of proposed regulatory roll backs (from Red State):

  • Opening FFL eligibility to gun-show-only dealers
  • Reforming the “armor-piercing handgun ammo” classification process
  • Easing re-import of American-made “Curio & Relic” service arms
  • Revising “Sporting Purposes” language to include Modern Sporting Rifles like AR’s and AK’s
  • Reclassifying suppressors as non-NFA items–other sources indicate mainstreaming suppressors would dramatically cut ATF workload, allowing more focus on other duties
  • Letting FFL’s check potential employees out via NICS before hiring
  • Clean house getting rid of outdated regulations like the ’94 AWB

Can anyone imagine the ATF coming up with ideas like these with a Democrat in the White House?

If the ATF puts its support behind deregulating suppressors, it will probably put an end to all federal registration and regulation on them. The ATF is basically doing a 180 and arguing for less power rather than more.

Second Amendment supporters shouldn’t be fooled. The ATF will be advocating for more gun control as soon as a Democratic president is back in power. In order for the bureaucracy to justify it’s existence it must advocate gun control over the long run. Less regulation means less regulators, the ATF will be right back where it was under Obama as soon as a Democrat returns to the White House.

In the meantime, enjoy watching the ATF pretend to join forces with the NRA to advance pro-gun reforms.

This was a pretty intense stand off between a guy who just robbed a check cashing store and the police. When the robber decided to take a hostage, things escalated.

In the video below, an Irving Police officer takes the shot of his life:

 

The commentary from the guy recording the incident is spot on. He deserved it! The Police aren’t going to let you retreat to your safe space when you’re holding a hostage and a gun. These kind of hostage situations don’t normally end well for the suspect. Instead of a decade or two in prison, the suspect loses his life.

Here’s the run down:

“The two officers were here quickly, within minutes and were able to engage the suspect,” he said. “They couldn’t let him leave with the hostage. … By all appearances, this was the last resort for them.”

Other store employees hid in a locked room during the robbery. They and the woman were taken to police headquarters to be interviewed.

Friday’s armed robbery was not the first reported at the store. It also was robbed Jan. 13, McLellan said. In all, about a dozen check-cashing stores across the Dallas-Fort Worth area have been robbed since November, including the Jan. 7 hold-up of a store in north Irving, he said.

Irving police detectives and internal affairs officers as well as the public integrity unit of the Dallas County district attorney’s office were investigating Friday’s incident.

This is why you train. An easy high percentage shot against a paper target, will be more difficult with an adrenaline rush and 95% accuracy isn’t good enough in a hostage situation.

Do you know the real problem in America, and why having a new president doesn’t help you much?

Unelected Officials.

This is the shadow government — referred to as the Deep State — comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes and running our government right now.

I’ll explain further and you’ll see how they’re ruining one Veteran’s business (and life) right under Trump’s nose:

What Is The Deep State And How Are They Running Our Country?

These are the unelected officials that actually run almost ALL of the different government organizations that can make your life hell.

Former congressional staffer Mike Lofgren has written extensively about this, saying:

It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street.

All these agencies are coordinated by the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council. Certain key areas of the judiciary belong to the Deep State, such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, whose actions are mysterious even to most members of Congress. Also included are a handful of vital federal trial courts, such as the Eastern District of Virginia and the Southern District of Manhattan, where sensitive proceedings in national security cases are conducted.

The final government component (and possibly last in precedence among the formal branches of government established by the Constitution) is a kind of rump Congress consisting of the congressional leadership and some (but not all) of the members of the defense and intelligence committees. The rest of Congress, normally so fractious and partisan, is mostly only intermittently aware of the Deep State and when required usually submits to a few well-chosen words from the State’s emissaries.”

The worse part, and my main point, is these are unelected officials within these organizations … they are NOT elected by the people … that means … that they have absolutely no responsibility to the people.

You can’t vote them into or out of office.

You can’t bombard their office with letters/phone calls about how you’re displeased with their service (well, you theoretically could, if you could find out who was actually in charge).

And yet, they have the power to interpret laws — using their own opinions — and those opinions have the power of law.

So when they interpret laws how they see fit, they have the POWER of law, without ever having Congress pass a law.

And they make the VAST majority of the decisions. This Forbes article (from 2011) notes (emphasis mine):

Congress has exceeded its constitutional authority in delegating such power to unaccountable agencies. Sadly, this is not limited just to these recent laws, but rather it is business as usual in Washington, D.C.

Today there are more than 300 independent and regulatory agencies that publish more than 75,000 pages of new and proposed rules in the Federal Register every year. At the beginning of each calendar quarter, the executive orders, rules and regulations in the Federal Register that become final law are included in the Code of Federal Regulations. The current edition of the Code of Federal Regulations is more than 200 volumes in length. By comparison, the entire U.S. Code, which contains all the laws passed by Congress and signed by the president, is roughly 35 volumes.”

Get it?

This article, printed in 2011 no less, makes it clear: 200 volumes of rules/regulations by unaccountable officials that actually govern your life VS only 35 volumes of laws actually passed by Congress and signed by the President.

That’s how stuff like this happens …

ATF Shuts Down Veteran’s Solvent Trap Line

SD Tactical Arms of Prescott, Arizona sells firearms stuff. It appears that they sold both regular NFA-regulated silencers of their own manufacture and also a line of “solvent traps”.

As of today the ATF shut down our business of selling solvent traps,” A Facebook post by SD says.

The continue, “This is 99% of our income. They have put 3 Veterans, my wife and son out of work. They said I can’t sell freeze plugs. NAPA can’t even sell them to us because they are a suppressor part. They said all I can sell is complete suppressors.

SD is appealing and hoping the new president will help, using the hashtag #Americandreamlost on Social Media he says:

My plea for help is to make this Viral to the Trump admin, the Trump family and such. I have been put in the street over mindless opinions. I had talked to the ATF in the past and they had no issues. Today they shut us down,” reads the post.

SD Tactical noted the ATF did not get a copy of their customer list.

They also noted that if the new silencer act in Congress doesn’t pass, then they will have to go out of business (because the Solvent Traps were such a big source of revenue).

Again, this is the problem with unelected officials like the ones who run the ATF who are given the power to decide how to interpret laws.

They can change their minds on a whim and their “opinions” have the force of law!

And you can’t vote these guys out because they work for the organization not the people.

(That’s why regime changes in Washington rarely amount to much real change in your day-to-day life and level of freedom.)

How The ATF Could Throw You In Jail For Owning a Gun and a Water Bottle

From what I gather, SD posted what appears to be the text of a letter from the ATF’s Firearms Industry programs Branch (FIPB) which first said:

The stated intent of a solvent trap is to catch and trap gun cleaning solvent during bore cleaning operations commonly performed on firearms. Solvent traps do attach to the muzzle of a firearm but do not have any design features intended to allow a bullet to pass through them. Since as originally manufactured they are not intended to silence, muffle or diminish the report of a portable firearm they are not silencers..

It also said this:

However, if the solvent trapped (sic) was redesigned or utilized to assemble a device for silencing, muffling or diminishing the report of a portable firearm or if intent was demonstrated to use the device for silencing, muffling or diminishing the report of a portable firearm, the solvent trap would be classified as a “firearm silencer.”

So by using this logic, and shutting down this man’s business, basically ANYTHING that could be “redesigned” into a silencing device would be grounds for violating the NFA laws against silencers.

Think about that logic.

So that means if you have a gun and a water bottle sitting in your home, the ATF could potentially bust you using the same type of logic because “while the stated intent” of a water bottle is not to be a silencer and “as originally manufactured they are not intended to silence, muffle or diminish the report of a portable firearm they are not silencers …”

But remember! The ATF says “However, if the water bottle (sic) was redesigned or utilized to assemble a device for silencing, muffling or diminishing the report of a portable firearm or if intent was demonstrated to use the device for silencing, muffling or diminishing the report of a portable firearm, the water bottle would be classified as a “firearm silencer.”

Of course, a quick visit to Youtube reveals how to “redesign or utilize” a water bottle to assemble a silencer:

You’ll note that nothing about the SD Tactical shut down said they had ACTUALLY turned these solvent traps into silencers.

The entire shutdown appears to be because people could potentially turn them into silencers.

That’s crazy.

But this is the America we’re living in and why — even though I personally LIKE Trump and think he’s awesome — I don’t think much will change under his administration because practically our entire country/government is actually ran by the unelected “shadow government” or “Deep State” that is responsible to no one but themselves.

A Bloomberg funded anti-gun group seems to think that they know the warning signs of a mass shooter. Apparently the main “warning signs” are reading about guns and listening to music. You’re already reading an article about guns on the internet, are you listening to music now, as well? I hope not! We don’t want to call Mike Bloomberg on you.

Just when you think progressives can’t get any more irrational, they go and run an ad like this:

I wonder if the fact that the boy in the video seems to like girls also makes him more likely to be a mass shooter. The “warning signs” seem to apply to the vast majority of young men everywhere. Everyone got picked on once in a while, as a teenager. Lots of boys like guns, teenagers often listen to music and feel anti-social from time to time. Are they all shooters?

The “warning signs” of a mass shooter are just as irrational as the supposedly deadly features on a so-called assault rifle. After the mass shooter reads his gun magazines, he’ll learn that if he uses a gun that’s painted black that has purely cosmetic features, such as a bayonet lug, more people will die or something, right liberals?

In the mean time, liberals will continue to ignore actual warning signs. You know, like the time the insane scumbag murderer from Sandy Hook tried to buy a gun illegally and the FBI knew about it but did nothing. The FBI knew he was crazy and they knew he was trying to buy a gun he wasn’t allowed to have. The “warning signs” can’t get anymore obvious than that.

Instead of enforcing existing laws, progressives seek to create paranoia every time someone reads a guns magazine. These people aren’t trying to solve problems, they’re just trying to politicize them.

Neil Gorsuch was just nominated by Donald Trump to replace Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court. Exactly where he stands on the Second Amendment isn’t totally clear due to a lack of rulings, but here is the best information we have to go with so far:

From the NRA:

During his tenure on the Tenth Circuit, Gorsuch has demonstrated his belief that the Constitution should be applied as the framers intended.  To that end, he has supported the individual right to self-defense.  Specifically, he wrote in an opinion that “the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly.”

“On behalf of our five million members, the NRA strongly supports Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. We will be activating our members and tens of millions of supporters throughout the country in support of Judge Gorsuch.  He will protect our right to keep and bear arms and is an outstanding choice to fill Justice Scalia’s seat,” concluded Cox.

So far, so good, at the very least he agrees that the Second Amendment is an individual right. Already, he is a thousand times better than any of the four liberal justices on the court! Ohh, and he loves to hunt and fish too. However it’s really not totally clear where he will stand on some of the other issues the court might face, such as concealed carry reciprocity. He is at least adequate, but is he great?

From Inverse:

Unfortunately, for those who might be wondering, there doesn’t seem to be much indication that Gorsuch feels any which way about the Second Amendment. He hasn’t ever ruled on this issue. In public statements and in his writing, he has not mentioned where he stands. For some, this may constitute a cause for concern, but the lack of information on Gorsuch’s stance likely comes more from the dearth of court cases relating to this issue than it does from any reluctance on his part to present his opinion.

There have been few notable court cases involving the Second Amendment, lately — because there have been so few gun control measures actually passed, leaving little to challenge in the courts. Still, there is enough related information to say that Gorsuch will at the very least be friendly, if not totally helpful, to the interests of gun advocates and owners.

Rest assured this guy is better than anything Hillary Clinton would give gun owners. He interprets the second amendment as an individual right to bear arms, Hillary doesn’t. Neil Gorsuch might not have the voting record to accurately assess where he stands in greater detail, at 49 years of age, we might literally have several decades to figure that out.

It’s official, the US ARMY has finally ended it’s search for a new handgun — the Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS) — by choosing SIG SAUER.

Specifically, the gun that will replace the M9 and M11 pistols over the next 10 years is going to be built by Sig Sauer, Inc out of Newington, New Hampshire.

For all the details (and to see the pics!), keep reading …

Press Release Breaks The Story During SHOT Show 2017 …

SoldierSystems.net was the first to break the story on January 19, 2017 …

Sig Sauer Inc., Newington, New Hampshire, was awarded a $580,217,000 firm-fixed-price contract for the Modular Handgun System including handgun, accessories and ammunition to replace the current M9 handgun. Bids were solicited via the Internet with nine received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of Jan. 19, 2027. Army Contracting Command, Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey, is the contracting activity (W15QKN-17-D-0016).

SIG quickly followed up with their own official Press Release:

“SIG SAUER, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Army has selected the SIG SAUER Model P320 to replace the M9 service pistol currently in use since the mid-1980’s. Released in 2014, the P320 is a polymer striker-fired pistol that has proven itself in both the United States and worldwide markets. The P320 is the first modular pistol with interchangeable grip modules that can also be adjusted in frame size and caliber by the operator. All pistols will be produced at the SIG SAUER facilities in New Hampshire.

The MHS Program provides for the delivery of both full size and compact P320’s, over a period of ten (10) years. All pistols will be configurable to receive silencers and will also include both standard and extended capacity magazines.

“I am tremendously proud of the Modular Handgun System Team,” said Army Acquisition Executive, Steffanie Easter in the release. “By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we truly have optimized the private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters.””

I Walked Right By The SIG Booth At SHOT Show and Had No Idea!

It appears as if the actual pistol is a P320 chambered in either .40 S&W or 9mm (most likely a 9mm. In fact, it better be or this is a stupid move on Big ARMY’s part …) still a striker fired pistol but with a manual safety (a somewhat “rare” model).

The TAN/FDE colored handguns on this page are from SIG official, so that’s what it looks like.

Until we can get some hands on this new pistol (or anyone else does), that’s the only pictures I can share!

These two pics are from TheFirearmBlog of the closest current P320 model SIG with the manual safety:


And because I’ve never seen a P320 with a manual safety (though I have fired and seen a lot of P320 at gun training classes without a safety) — I thought this post from WeaponsMan was pretty cool showing diagrams about how the manual safety actually works:


4.2 Manual Safety Equipped Pistols

The SIG P320 is offered with an optional ambidextrous manual safety. The manual safety mechanically blocks the movement of the trigger bar so the trigger cannot be pressed to the rear.

To engage the manual safety, rotate the safety lever upward with the thumb of the firing hand. The manual safety is ambidextrous. Pressing up on the lever from either side will rotate the opposite lever upward, engaging the manual safety. The slide can still be manipulated with the manual safety engaged.


If you would rather watch a video about this story than read, here’s a good one from TFB:

What Do You Think?

Should they have given the contract to Glock like all the Special Operations Forces are already using?

Or do you think the P320 is a smart move?

Do you think it’s a little pre-mature to give it to SIG when the P320 is only a few years old and not yet … proven?

I will say I was fondling all the different (modular) grips of the SIG P320 while I was at SHOT show and I did actually like the “small” frame model as it fit my hand better than any other handgun I’ve picked up in a long time (in Double Stack format at least)…

If you don't know, there are some INSANE laws from 1934 that govern much of what is "legal" in the firearms world. They're known as...
