Guns for women everyone

In an update to yesterday’s post on the subject comes a couple more enlightening bits. Alan on myths v. reality. A good read. The notion that a Glock 19 is somehow more complex to operate than a 38 is laughable.

And the TXGunGeek on a range day win:

She had been told and taught that she couldn’t properly operate a semi auto and she believed it. After class, she was more than able to hold her own with a semi auto and on her way to actually enjoying shooting a pistol. That just makes it all worth while despite the heat and tiringly long day.

    The Glock was a game changer in terms of simplicity and reliability. Unbelievably reliable, durable and corrosion proof and with a rock simple interface. The only dumb part of the design was having to dry fire it to disassemble, and Gen 4 fixed that.

    Just watched the Magpul dynamic handgun video this weekend. Amongst all the cops and military guys they usually have was a 19yr old girly-girl. She shot a Glock and shot it well.

    Hmm. Let’s try phrasing it differently:

    The failed-to-fire malfunction response for a semiautomatic handgun is substantially more complicated than for a revolver. T/F?

    Determining the loaded/unloaded state of a semiautomatic handgun is substantially less obvious, and prone to error by the less-trained/less-practiced. T/F?

    (I don’t understand teh “women” generalization either; to me, it’s more-or-less-likely-to-practice-routinely.)

    1 – More complicated yes, substantially more so, no.
    2. Open cylinder of handgun vs either looking at the loaded chamber indicator (if the pistol has one) a press check. IMHO its 6 of one, half a dozen of the other.

    Additionally, double action revolvers have a heavier trigger pull weight than single trigger semi auto.

    Need to clean your J-frame? Open the cylinder, clean it.

    Need to clean your Glock? Take out the magazine, take the gun apart, clean it, put it back together.
