Mattv2099 with the 1000 yard stare, scowl, and a whole lot of lead downrange:
This magazine obviously has no sporting purpose, and is only intended to kill hundreds of people. Write your lawmakers and ask them to keep high capacity 600 round assault magazines out of the hands of the public. If it only saves one life…
Another danger is that it’s so concealable. You could EASILY slip that magazine inside a 8ft bamboo shoot and stroll around in public, without anyone having any idea. That’s scary.
Also, as it was pointed out on facebook, we need to ban high capacity assault ladders. There is just no reason a ladder should have over 7 rungs. You take the ladder out of the equation and the shooter is forced to use stilts, which will likely make them an easier target for good samaritans to knock over and save innocent lives.
Oh to have problems like the police chief in Greenwood Indiana:
Greenwood Police Department has six Glock machine pistols and 10,000 rounds of corresponding ammunition, but Chief Rick McQueary says he doesn’t want his officers carrying them. McQueary is working with city officials to determine what to do with the guns. They may be sold to another police department of destroyed.
By the look of the 2nd picture, the Glocks are both ejecting downwards, which means that one of them must have been modified with a custom slide to eject left! That is so damn awesome, I don’t even know what else to say.
The fact that they are attached, have a red dot on them, and are in that custom suspenders holster is just the icing on the cake.
The Glock Model 18 and 18C (compensated) offers a quality no other handgun in history can match: on demand, fully automatic capability. Available only to qualified, reputable law enforcement / government agencies, both versions can fire either semi-automatically, or with the design specific selector switch set in the correct position. Cycles at 1,200 rounds per minute.
As you can see the Glock 18 is $507 and the Glock 18C is $532
I have heard so many rumors that G18s are 10s of thousands of dollars, but that’s just not true. From what I understand, an individual can’t own one of these. They are only available to Law Enforcement / Government / Military, or as samples to Class III dealers. Quite the incentive to become a Class III dealer if you ask me.
It really doesn’t surprise me that the price is so low, considering there is very little difference between the Glock 18 and the Glock 17.
A fun fact about the Glock 18, that some of you may not know…
When Saddam Hussein was captured by Delta Force soldiers in December of 2003 from a spider hole in Iraq, he had an unloaded Glock 18C on him. Four Delta force soldiers later presented the pistol to President George Bush, and according to friends and long-time associates it because a favorite memento of his, and for nearly 5 years he kept the mounted glass-encased pistol in the Oval Office. Before Mr. Bush left the White House in January, he made arrangements for the gun to be shipped to a national archives warehouse just 18 miles north of his new home in Dallas. No official word on whether the gun will for sure be present in the presidential library, but according to Mr. Bush’s friends and associates he intends to display it there. ( Source )
I’m curious of a few things:
Did George Bush ever shoot Saddam’s G18?
Was the gun framed in working condition, or is it deactivated?
If the gun is not deactivated, were NFA rules suspended for the president?
Is the gun actually the property of George Bush, or is it the property of the U.S. Government?
I realize that not everyone can buy these, which is why the price is so low. The price is reasonable enough though that if you did meet the qualifications then it would be stupid NOT to have one.
This item is a Post 1986 Dealer Sample, available only to Class 3 dealers with a Law Enforcement demo letter. All NFA rules apply.
This item is a Select Fire (Semi Auto / Full Auto) Glock 17. It uses a conversion device to allow fully automatic operation. The host pistol is a 3rd Generation Glock 17. On full-auto, this firearm operates at approximately 1200-1300 rounds per minute.
The conversion device was manufactured by The Armory of Scottsdale Arizona and the model number is GLK18.
