In my Money, Guns, Art – Scott Campbell post I mentioned how I have a weakness for weapon related art, and how I love the smell of money.
London artist Justine Smith creates some sculptures using U.S. $1 bills that I would love to hang on my wall:

I am beginning to think Garry Trudeau is dedicating this entire week to anti gun themed Starbucks comics:

Unsurprisingly, this one is no less offensive and stereotypical than the previous 3.

Jason Bradbury takes on a real SAS solider on the worlds first full scale version of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 pit level:
Very interesting idea, and pretty nicely executed… even if it is staged.
As SayUncle pointed out, the gun is a GSG-5 (which is a .22LR) not a H&K MP5 (9mm)… huge difference.

Garry Trudeau has now dedicated 3 days worth of comics to the stale Starbucks open carry topic:
Here is today’s:

Out of the 7 sentences the characters say in this comic, 5 of them on there own are a mix of being either insulting to gun owners, or flat out anti-gun. Nice…

How much longer will this go on?
A very comprehensive and fair article on Concealed carry.
Some interesting graphs as well, showing the rise in states adopting “shall issue” permits and the fall in homicides over the same time period.

Also, make sure you hit up the poll – HERE
At my time of voting, pro-concealed carry was winning by a landslide (76.5%) with almost 50,000 votes.
If you are looking to read more on the topic, Concealed Carry By. Massad Ayoob will not disappoint. For $16.50 you will definitely get your money’s worth whether you are new to carrying, or have been doing it for years.

One Glock option that is new to me is the internal safety lock. Listed on the Glock website under the “Safety Pack” menu. When locked, the gun cannot be fired or disassembled.
My initial impressions when I saw this system were:
a) Why would I want a lock in my Glock(s)?
b) What advantage does this have over an external combination lock or the included cable lock?
c) The key looks overly complex
d) How many more parts is this adding to the internals of my gun?
The reality of most locks are, that given enough time or knowledge, they become easily circumvented and therefore rendered useless. The Glock Internal Safety Lock appears to be no exception.
As I mentioned earlier, like most internal handgun locks, when the Glock lock is enabled the gun cannot be fired or disassembled. In this case the safety is achieved through a half circle shaped block that is rotated 180 degrees with the turning of the key which blocks the rearward travel of the trigger bar.
