Grip

This guy is an expert troll marksman:

I’m just annoyed he wasn’t tea cupping and holding it sideways gangsta style… that would be the ultimate grip.

Broad sides of barns everywhere are shaking in their boots.

Someone got in over their head trying to shorten the grip on a Glock 17 to make it more “subcompact”:

He’s selling it now on AR15.com for $350 which isn’t a terrible deal if you have a tight budget and are good with grip mods.

I’m sure in the end someone will buy it for the slide only.

Behold this Hi-Point:

Looks like someone decided to make a hell of a statement on their “uniqueness”. I think I puked a little in the back of my mouth. LOL

I’m going to go out on a limb and even say that it looks like someone attached a gold link chain to the upper part of the backstrap under the slide. Could this be some sort of quasi retention lanyard for a pimp?  Your guess is as good as mine.

I don’t mind seeing people stipple and pattern their grips for a more aggressive texture, but seeing those useless bedazzled looking holes drilled in the slide just breaks my heart even on a Hi-Point.

Thanks for the updated link Shawn.

Fake? could be… but I’ve seen the exact same thing happen in a split second with my own eyes.  Luckily my friend didn’t lose any teeth though, and still came away from the situation with a valuable lesson in physics.

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!

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.
