3D Printed Glock
Well, the frame. It shoots but I wonder for how long.

A homeowner’s 19 year old son shot and killed three would be burglars with an AR-15.
A man tried to rob a pizza place by pointing a gun magazine at the employees.
With the growing number of guns being sold, accidental gun deaths are at a new low.
Along with other .gov agencies. But this case is so full of weird, scary, and stupidity:
I see this little pipe that looked like a sprinkler sticking out of the ground, Canyon told EastIdahoNews.com. I go over and touch it. Then it makes a pop sound and it spews orange gas everywhere.
The orange gas was cyanide, and it sprayed into Canyons left eye and on his clothing.
The teen grabbed some snow and washed his eye out but then realized Casey was having problems.
And it got placed there by the US government:
It took hours after emergency crews arrived and help from multiple agencies to learn Casey had died from exposure to an M-44.
M-44s are spring-activated devices that release cyanide when they are activated through upward pressure or pulling. The US Department of Agriculture uses the devices to control coyotes and other predators.
So, the USDA placed these around the edge of a property line and didn’t put up a sign or notify people who lived in the adjoining neighborhood?
Sooner than I thought.
Some Alabama sheriffs don’t want the state to go constitutional carry because they’d lose out on their gun permit money.
VA Gov. McAuliffe has vetoed the bill that allows those who take out protective orders to carry firearms.
NRA ILA says that they’re running ads in key states (i.e., with Democrats but the people like guns) and will use the Gorsuch confirmation for ratings.
M&P 2.0. I’m curious to see how her review goes. As yet, I’ve seen no reason to upgrade from my version 1.0.
So, I snagged a JM Custom Kydex holster for the Sig P229, which was my very first carry gun. And today I carried it for the first time. The old Sig doesn’t have any gizmos or doodads on it. As Tam (I think) would say, there are no lights, lasers, tasers, phasers or wind speed indicators on it. Kind of nice having a minimalist sort of carry gun. It’s less obtrusive than the M&P with a Trijicon and a TLR-1 on it.
But a question for AIWB guys and gals: What do you do when driving? If I had to draw while in a vehicle, I’d have to go through the extra movement of unbuckling a seat belt, as opposed to just leaning forward as I could do with my 3:00 carry rig. And, it seems to me, that were I to get in a collision, I’m looking at a broken hip from the force of the GripZonetm being thrust at me thanks to the seat belt. Anyone know of anytime someone AIWB carrying had such a car accident? I’d be curious to know if that is a real thing or if I’m overthinking the whole thing.
I’m happy to report I was not killed in the streets.
A fair point, I think, for the civilian market and police.
Not for me. I had a single stack 9mm for a while (an Shield with a laser). But I found that when I wanted to go smaller, I really wanted to go small and pocket carry. The single stack 9mms aren’t suited to that for me and based on how I dress. So I’ll probably end up picking up a snubby of some kind and a pocket holster for those places where I can’t carry a gun.
But if I’m going to strap on a holster, I really see no reason to not carry a full size gun with a lot more BBs and a more pleasing grip.
So, a bunch of lefties, protesting Trump, decided to openly carry rifles at the Capitol. I’m glad they support the right to own high capacity magazines.
From Tacsoup’s facebook page:
And gives the anti-gun side 3 Pinocchios
Sebastian: The dumbest thing the Stupid Party could do is take this deal. Force the Dems to filibuster Gorsuch, and use the nuclear option if they do.
Well, the Army did that. And so did these guys:
A man open carries a gun to trampoline park. Jumps on trampoline. Gets police called on him. Nothing happens.
Well, that stinks.
A gizmo that works with your phone so that you can practice your firearms skills without noise and ammo. I think if there was a model that worked with your existing carry gun, that’d be sweet.
Just marked all read. So, I’m certain that while I was out of pocket that the Republicans repealed and replaced Obamacare, right? And Gorsuch is on the SCOTUS?
Kidding aside, it was nice to not pay attention to, well, much of anything other than a campfire.
Off on a little break. Camping. A big storm came in and almost took out the car.
Now for some R&R.
Back in a few days.
You may remember Emily Miller and her quest to obtain a permit to carry a firearm in DC. She got it. Well, now it’s time to renew and DC has made that process about as onerous as the original permit process. From her facebook page:
It’s been two years since I got a gun carry permit in DC. It expires and I have to apply to renew it. To do that, I have to pay for a four hour safety class and two hours range course – from one of the Washington Metropolitan Police Dept. certified civilian instructors. I also have to prove my life is still in danger. Oh and pay $70 in fees. And then the police chief decides if he will renew my permit. The The Council of the District of Columbia came up with this law, and it just is not constitutional!!
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
