17

Police bodyguards protecting the Royals and the Prime Minister are being armed with ‘baby’ guns in a bid to recruit more women officers to the role.

Often seen as a ‘girl’ gun in the hands of female detectives in TV programmes like CSI Miami and Criminal Minds, the Baby Glock is smaller, lighter and easier to use for those with smaller hands.

If you can’t shoot a Glock 17, you aren’t going to be able to shoot a Glock 26.  Giving the women the option of the G26 as their primary gun is a mistake if you ask me. The G26 is approximately 1.25″ shorter in height, which make make it a bit easier for some of them to hold, but the barrel length is around 1″ shorter on the G26 which isn’t a great when accuracy is paramount.  I’d much rather see them train on both guns, and have the G26 as a backup. Another big downside is the fact that the standard capacity of the G26 is only 10 rounds, compared to 17 rounds for the G17.

From my personal experience, the G26 is much more susceptible to malfunctions; especially when it comes to limp wristing my full size Glocks are a lot more forgiving. Anyone else find this as well?

Finally, I could be wrong, but I doubt there are too many women out there that are thinking to themselves “I’d love to be a police officer… if only the guns held less ammo, and were a bit shorter for my little hands”

This is the supposed pricing sheet for Law Enforcement, showing the price of the new generation 4:

At least they didn’t jack the price way up.

As some of you know, Dick Swan from A.R.M.S is suing LaRue Tactical

“for using the numerals 1 and 7 in our LT-170 mount part number. He filed for and last spring outrageously got a trademark on “#17″ and then he sued us.”

In that AR15.com thread, Mark Larue generously offered to replace ANY broken A.R.M.S. mount with a comparable mount of his own.  FOR FREE!

I thought that was just plain awesome.. but it gets better.

We are hereby offering to replace any A.R.M.S. mount that the owner intentionally breaks the M.I.M. lever off.

As you can imagine, the response is huge!

One example of awesomeness from the thread:

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.

That, or an actual Glock 18 is my dream gun!

Someday…  Someday…
