Pretty awesome.  So when does this come out for the sub compact glocks? SHOT Show this year perhaps? :P

It’s apparently fired by flexing your wrist. Sounds dangerous if you had to sneeze or do any number of other regular things… I hope it has a reliable safety.

Definitely an interesting way to hold a rifle.  I can’t imagine that not using the sights on the rifle, and shooting from the hip would be endorsed by any police force in the world.

Also, what’s with the cross draw setup he has for his revolver? Is that something people do with outside the pants hip holsters?  Seems like a great way to unnecessarily muzzle sweep people every time you pull the gun out.  The only time i’m used to seeing cross draw is on shoulder rigs, but in that case it is necessary to have it on the opposite side.

Someone made a hilarious parody of the ad:

A Colt .38 Special Revolver carrying a small camera that automatically takes a picture when you pull the trigger. (Source)

Wow. What a terrible idea. I’m sure some genius will make a drop in digital version of this for the Glock soon enough.

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!

Freedom Firearms in Battle Creek, MI have an awesome new mailbox:

Fabricated by Steve’s Welding here in Battle Creek Michigan. He said the project took about 4 months in his spare time. It’s all steel and wood. there is 4 feet of concrete in the ground and an internal post through the grip frame. The hammer is checkered, and the back of the grip is evenly ribbed.
