The Department of Defense has some issues with the Sig P320

Per SOFREP, it seems some of them can’t reliably feed the Army’s issue ammo; the trigger can come apart; and it may eject more than one round.

Wow

.50 caliber air gun:

Designed, engineered and built in the USA, the largest production air rifle on the planet is here from Umarex USA. The all-new Umarex Hammer is a .50-caliber air rifle capable of launching a 550-grain lead slug at 760 feet per second, producing 705 foot-pounds of muzzle energy.

This is funny

Especially because he’s appropriating my culture:

I don’t name my guns. Well, let me rephrase that. I call them all the same name. Mr. Blasty.

Sort of want.

A fool for a client

If you’re charged with selling parts that convert AR-15s to machine guns, you may want to lawyer up instead of representing yourself.

Federal prosecutors claimed Bishop sold 1,400 of these kits throughout the country from 2013 to 2016 for $100 each. The kit included a piece of metal that could be placed in the lower receiver of the assault-style rifles to allow the gun to continually fire while the trigger was pressed down.

I’m guessing Drop In Auto Sears?

Unpossible

They have all that gun and knife control there: Gun and knife crime up in London. And the occasional acid attack, I hear.

Tempting

I’ve been happy with the M&Ps. But this makes a P320 tempting:

The EXO ONE (XO1) is a patent-pending multi-caliber exoskeleton for the Sig Sauer P320 Fire Control Unit (FCU). In 20 seconds, you can change your 320 pistol into a legal, bigger, more capable pistol with no FFL and no tools.

Derp is a process

That which was common knowledge is now derp. I remember the days of 1911 v. Glock; 9mm v. 45; AR v. AK. And on and on. All of those have virtually been agreed upon by people with more of a clue than I have. The new hottest debate seems to stem around AIWB v. WB carry of some sort. I’m an IWB carry sort of guy, generally. But, as mentioned before, I’m giving this thing a shot. And with a double action for the extra bit of safety a hammer provides.

Trust me, I’ve carried in some derpy ways in the past.

Ugh

A tracer round started a fire at an indoor gun range.

Still one of my favorites

Is my Sig Sauer P229. I’ve even, recently, taken to carrying it AIWB on occasion* as I try out this new fangled carry method. Even though it’s not new. But there’s a lot more clue involved than in the old days when we called Mexican carry. Even thought it wasn’t exactly that.

When you have some really dumb gun regulations

You get things like this:

Even though it has a short barrel, that is a non NFA firearm. The folks at Franklin Armory created the Reformation because they could. The reason it is not an NFA item is because it has straight cuts. And that makes it not a firearm.

I wonder if the name implies a hope for reforming stupid gun laws.
