Looks like “Bad Guys Inc.” might have some comedy potential.

Speaking of old music redone… I always notice it at Cheesecake Factory. I don’t know what satellite radio station they have it set to, but there is some funny stuff sometimes which sounds like 2pac songs played on the sax, or someone singing a 50 cent song in a jazz style etc… I know a lot of those songs are actually “old”, and rappers just sampled them, but some of the ones I’ve heard there just can’t be old.

It’s that time of year again…

For the bi-annual Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in West Point, KY. Held this year on the 9th, 10th, and 11th of April.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Machine gun shoot, it is legendary for so many reasons. One being the “Night Shoot”:

A search for “knob creek” on youtube will yield hundreds of other epic videos.

My Glock Stock Adapter will be represented there this year, and be in action at position #20 on dual G18 Glocks in the center of the main firing line.

Unfortunately I won’t personally be there. But, I will be posting videos and pictures sometime after the weekend.

I think it’s safe to say that the $10 admission would be money well spent.

Developed by Colt back in the 1930s. The rate of fire is listed at 700 rounds per minute (For comparison, the Glock 18 ROF is 1200 rounds per minute):

The curved magazine is pretty unique looking on a handgun!

Notorious gangster John Dillinger (who the recent movie Public Enemies is based on) and his gang had a similar weapon in their arsenal, only theirs was converted to .38 super.

Notice the fully auto M1911A1 has the same foregrip as Dillinger’s Thompson Sub machine gun does in the movie poster.  This is obviously for better controll with such a high rate of fire.

There are a number of pictures of the Dillinger M1911A1 floating around, but this one is the best quality I have saved (Click picture to enlarge):

Pretty classy looking if you ask me!

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. :P

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.

Although that side mounted selector switch on the Glock 18 is badass, I’d still settle for a Glock 17 with a drop in conversion.

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.

I’m curious of a few things:

  1. Did George Bush ever shoot Saddam’s G18?
  2. Was the gun framed in working condition, or is it deactivated?
  3. If the gun is not deactivated, were NFA rules suspended for the president?
  4. 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.

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

Someday…  Someday…
