Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Newer versions of this famous shotgun use roll pins instead of screws to hold certain action parts. Here’s how to convert early Auto-5s.

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.”

Methodist Church politicizes Aurora deaths, attacks NRA, calls for gun bans

July 24, 2012

(GunReports.com) — The national United Methodist Church didn't just call for prayer after the recent cinema shootings. Instead, the United Methodist Church's General Board of Church & Society stepped up on the bodies of the dead and wounded in Colorado to call for a range of gun-control measures -- including banning all handguns -- as a result of the Aurora shooting.

James E. Winkler, General Secretary, General Board of Church & Society, and Bill Mefford, Director of Civil & Human Rights, General Board of Church & Society, are the signatories to an anti-gun political-action document posted on the national Methodist website.

Selected portions of the document read as follows:

"The United Methodist Church considers it a priority public health issue to prevent firearm-related death and injury. In its resolution on 'Gun Violence,' the denomination calls for social policies and personal lifestyles that bring an end to senseless gun violence, including a ban on all handguns.…"

"Equal to our sadness at this tragic loss of life is our disappointment at Congress’ inability to place public safety above the interests of the National Rifle Assn. Our society can no longer afford to allow the power of the gun lobby in its efforts to ensure ownership without responsibility to keep Congress mute on this pressing public-safety issue…."

"Some of the most common-sense policies that Congress could enact quickly include:

• instituting background checks on all gun sales, including at gun shows;

• limiting bulk sales of guns intended to be illegally resold; and

• reinstating the ban on sale of military assault weapons to civilians…."

Do Methodist lay people know that an aggressively anti-gun national Methodist governing body is trying to ban handguns and semi-auto rifles in response to The Joker shootings?
