    One of the most shocking things about gun-grabbing Democrats is their shocking ignorance about guns, legal gun owners, and gun culture. That ignorance was on display Sunday when David Chiu, a California assemblyman, was walking down the streets of San Francisco and discovered the abandoned packaging for a Glock. The horror! Except it wasn’t a Glock at all, something he would have realized if he’d read the packing or known anything about gun sales.
  • Glock wins (and Biden loses) in major liability suit

    God didn’t deliver for President Joe Biden, who recently begged “the Lord” to help him erase the congressionally approved immunity that gun-makers have from lawsuits. In a little-noticed decision with a major impact on the firearms industry, a federal judge in Arizona has ruled in favor of pistol manufacturer Glock and dismissed a suit brought by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence on behalf of a man who was accidentally shot and paralyzed. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Brnovich upheld liability immunity granted in the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act passed in 2005 to block gun-makers from...

  • Glock 44: A .22 Long Rifle Dream Come True?

    Like Glock’s other pistols, the G44 is built around Glock’s Marksman Barrel, a unique design that forgoes traditional grooved barrel rifling in favor of a polygonal barrel. Glocks maintains that this design provides a better gas seal between the bullet and barrel, as well as less bullet deformation. Both of these qualities translate into reduced barrel fouling and wear as well as better downrange accuracy. In the case of the G44, the barrel is 102 millimeters, or 4.02 inches long. The introduction of Glock’s Gen 5 models saw additional serrations added to the front of the slide, a feature that...
  • Glock 43X Black: Best Self-Defense Gun For Concealed Carry?

    Glock’s Slimlines offer shooters a thinner pistol frame, ideal for shooters with smaller hands or for situations when concealment is a must. This is achieved by using a thinner, 10-round standard magazine. Although a 10-round magazine certainly offers a lower capacity than some of Glock’s standard pistol sizes, it is nearly unparalleled for a subcompact pistol size. It is worth mentioning too that the 43X is chambered in 9x19mm. Although this is by no means the most powerful handgun cartridge on the market, combined with the 43X’s 10-round magazine capacity, it’s not a bad choice at all.
  • Glock G43X MOS: The Ultimate Compact Self-Defense Gun?

    19FortyFive ^ | 4/19/2021 | Caleb Larson
    The pistol is named G43X MOS — for Modular Optic System. The MOS configuration allows the G43X MOS to mount a variety of optical sights directly to the pistol’s slide, which when mounted, allows for “faster target transition and quicker sights acquisition of your target,” according to the Glock website. In the case of the Slimline group of Glocks, cuts are made into the pistol’s slide for micro-optic mounting and are covered with a removable cover plate. The G43X MOS also features Glock’s Marksman barrel, a polygonally rifled barrel with “enhanced rifling” for improved accuracy. In contrast to most traditional...

    Washington (CNN) — US Capitol Police on Wednesday afternoon arrested a West Virginia man who was armed with a handgun and 20 rounds of ammunition outside the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, which is near the US Capitol, a spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police Department said. He was taken into custody for having a black .9mm Sig Sauer handgun and the ammunition, the report said. The arrest comes weeks after hundreds of rioters stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to stop the Senate's confirmation of President Joe Biden. Five people, including a police officer were killed. Security was...

    A sub-compact .45 almost seems too good to be true, but Glock listened to the market and released the Glock 30, a concealable pistol with a big bang. Many believe the 30 is the top contender for the modern concealed carry weapon (CCW) 45. Does Glock’s design hold up to the beefy .45 ACP? Find out in my review of the Glock 30 below.

    Why the Glock 19? Modern polymer materials combined with more consistent action and superior corrosion resistance simply performed better than SIG’s all-metal design. Navy SEALSs and SIG: After the United States military shifted away from the iconic albeit somewhat aged M1911A1 to the more modern Beretta M9 in 1985, Navy SEALs decided to go in a different direction, opting to carry the SIG Sauer P226, which was dubbed Mk 25 in SEAL service.

    There was a time when the thought of the French military using a weapon developed in another country might have been unthinkable. However, the Glock 17 will now serve in the French military. Here’s how it happened. Background While many nations have routinely adopted small arms developed in other nations, the French have always been fiercely independent – and France was among the few nations of Europe not to employ a Maxim machine gun at the outbreak of the First World War. That trend in domestically-produced infantry weapons largely continued through the Cold War era, but military leaders in Paris...

Introduced in 1901, it has served in virtually every conflict since then up until today. From World War I’s German army to the British army...

    They say the deputy tried to stop Sanders but he pulled away and began reaching into his pants pocket. Moments later, Sanders' mother, Pornaree Sanders, 56, of Fort Walton Beach tried to get in the middle of the deputy and her son. . . . According to the press release, “After gaining control of both subjects a Glock 40 caliber handgun was located within close proximity of where the deputy struggled with the pair. Mark Sanders admitted to having had it in his right front pants pocket and said he was not trying to harm the deputy.”

    Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, right? Guess this all depends on where you're at and what you have to work with. In this case, this homemade pistol is quite a blasphemy to many Glock enthusiasts. But, for some a thing of beauty. Take a look at these pics, the homemade Glock that is nothing short of dismal. These photos were shared on an all-Russian forum. Somewhere in Russia, one basement tinkerer (aspiring gunsmith) is very proud of his creation. From a distance it resembles a beat up Glock that just got runned over by a truck. Notice...

    The year is 1904 and from the inner workings of John Moses Browning’s, mind a cartridge emerged. It was the great 45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol), 45 Auto or an even more modern nickname “The Flying Dump Truck”. The US military had been buying and using various calibers while searching for the perfect combination of size and power. Having moved from a 250 grain 45 Long Colt to a smaller 150 grain 38 Long Colt during this transitional period many unfortunate and very deadly failures to stop occurred. While the light cartridge was easier to control, it didn’t yield the...

    The United States Secret Service is moving forward with plans to outfit its agents with Glock 9 millimeter (mm) pistols to replace the agency's existing Sig Sauer .357-caliber duty weapons -- part of a larger move among U.S. law enforcement agencies towards the lighter, more efficient guns. “The Secret Service has been one of the few agencies that has maintained Sig Sauer as a permanent duty weapon for more than 20 years,” said Donald J. Mihalek, a retired senior Secret Service agent and ABC News contributor. The Secret Service and Glock declined to comment on the move, but a federal...
