Apple wants a piece of the market:

I have the following questions:

  1. Will have a user replaceable magazine?
  2. Does it use proprietary .45 caliber ammunition?
  3. Where’s the touch screen?
  4. Is this a grasp at the liberal hippy market?
  5. How many times per month will I have to upgrade the software on it?
  6. Does it require the newest version of that POS iTunes?
  7. What kind of fancy apps can I get for it?

John Moses Browning is rolling in his grave right now… :P

The combination of television, the internet, and law enforcement is very powerful:

I was kind of surprised to find out they only have caught 17 guys off the FBI’s most wanted list since 1988.  I supposed those guys are the worst of the worse though, cause he goes on to say they caught thousands more criminals.

Really neat how the advances in technology are flushing some of the scumbags out.

Do any of you guys that are in law enforcement have any stories to share about how the internet helped you catch a bad guy?

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!

Ten years ago, John was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle wreck, leaving him 95 percent blind.  While some people may see John’s blindness as a handicap, through these doors he’s just another one of the guys.

John’s pistol is equipped with special sights, and he memorizes the locations of the targets. He’s shot in International Defensive Pistol Association, or IDPA matches, at ranges from Alaska to Ada, Paris, and Sherman, for more than a year.

Full Story – HERE

Good to see that his handicap isn’t stopping him from doing what he loves.
