Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

CCRKBA: 'President Can't Tell Gun 'Safety' Advocates from Prohibitionists'

March 16, 2011

(GunReports.com) -- President Obama's well-intentioned Sunday essay on gun rights in a Tucson newspaper demonstrates that he — and probably his entire administration — remains confused about firearms safety and gun control, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said Monday.

"The President evidently can't tell the difference between genuine gun safety advocates and gun prohibitionists," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. "Obama's remarks reveal that he equates gun control with gun safety, when in reality the self-proclaimed 'safety' advocates spend all of their time spreading anti-gun hysteria, and none of it promoting responsible gun ownership."

In his essay, the President wrote, "The fact is, almost all gun owners in America are highly responsible. They're our friends and neighbors. They buy their guns legally and use them safely, whether for hunting or target shooting, collection or protection. And that's something that gun-safety advocates need to accept. Likewise, advocates for gun owners should accept the awful reality that gun violence affects Americans everywhere, whether on the streets of Chicago or at a supermarket in Tucson."

"Those to whom the President refers to as 'advocates for gun owners' are gun owners, themselves," Gottlieb observed. "They understand real gun safety involves muzzle control, proper storage, practiced marksmanship, and general safe handling. The so-called 'gun safety advocates' to whom the president alludes in his comments are prohibitionists who hide their true intentions behind a facade of pseudo-responsibility.

"Their idea of 'gun safety,'" he continued, "is to make gun ownership prohibitively expensive by adopting registration and licensing fees, and regulations that are deliberately written to discourage average citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.

"Please, Mr. President, the next time you take pen in hand to discuss gun rights and firearms safety, make sure you understand the distinction between gun owners and gun grabbers," Gottlieb concluded.

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.CCRKBA.org) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

Don't you think he really knows the difference and is just engaging in the typical Barack Hussein Obama Big Lie policies? He knows, he just has an Anti-2nd Amendment agenda, that he tries to conceal from the unwary.

Yeah, Robert V., I'm convinced. The collectivists, though, are laughing at us, claiming that the fact that he hasn't infringed yet is prima facie evidence that he never will, so we're just a bunch of ignorant, redneck paranoiacs.

People who think they're right about everything really annoy those of us who are.
