17, Glock
     





NOTE: In some places in the US (Mass., DC, etc.), Glocks are not lawful to equip with factory normal-capacity magazines. You may have to buy reduced-capacity magazines from online vendors, like through Cheaper Than Dirt. Search the following term: "10-round Glock magazine"

Bexar County, TX, ex-law enforcement Glocks in .40 S&W are on big discount from GT Distributors http://www.gtdist.com/ProductDetail.aspx?PartNumber=UG-GLOCK22G2 for only $299.95.

Click here to see the used guns. A new Glock can run you over $500.00!

If you buy a used gun, I recommend that you have it checked out by a gunsmith,or in this case a Glock armorer: http://www.gtdist.com/ProductDetail.aspx?PartNumber=UG-GLOCK22G2

Or if you know guns very well and feel confident, check out YouTube videos below.

First, field stripping (although he erroneously calls this disassembly):




Then a detailed disassembly/reassembly video:


Note the large number of parts large and small, springs, pins, etc. You may be UNpleasantly surprised -- as I was -- to find that your used gun is DIRTY when you receive it. Also, make sure that the sights are properly aligned, unlike my NEW pistol (back to the factory with you!).

You cannot make stuff up any more; people seem to be STUPIDER AND STUPIDER daily.

A guy is drinking a beer and shows off his LOADED semi-auto AK type rifle to his father. Father looks at it, then sets it down. Gun owner and father leave it unattended. Six-year-old nephew of gun owner picks it up and SHOOTS HIS GRANDFATHER DEAD. Way to go, uncle; way to go, granddad; way to go, child.

Children have to be taught: GUNS ARE NOT TOYS.

Learn this for yourself and teach the kids in your life:

If you find a gun unattended: Stop. Don't Touch, Leave the Area, and Tell an Adult.

Microsoft and Bugs

Ahrend grip in holster
Ok, I was a bit harsh on MS OS8 (in my last post). After a bit of poking around online, I was able to find and install an old "Start" button to allow me to navigate "oldschool" on the new weird Star Trek-style desktop. Whew!

But I had no way to play CDs. So I downloaded something that seemed legit, and now I'm driven BONKERS by something called SweetTarts or SweetPacks, and I can't uninstall it. Thanks, Mr. Gates, for making a cheap PC that invites bugs. It's not good for the old blood pressure, either. It's going to take me a WEEK to debug SweetCheeks. (UPDATE: Seriously, it really did take about a week!)

Placing hackers in a fire is too nice a punishment. 'Til next time.

Dear Mr. Gates:

Your MS OS8 is the most HATEFUL, GODAWFUL, RETARDED, OBSTINATE, DISGUSTING, APPALLING, HORRIBLE operating system "downgrade", not upgrade. MS Operating System 7 was easy, and it was a simple upgrade from the earlier system that people GREW UP WITH FOR 30 YEARS. This PIECE OF EXCREMENT update is visually confusing, and I cannot make the slightest  adjustments and easy transitions that I could before. I hate your guts or the guts of whoever green-lighted your GARBAGE OS8. I want to look for things but cannot find them. Even shutting down the machine is a colossal pain in the rear.

I'd like to take my Hewlett-Packared laptop $1,200 and THROW IT INTO THE G**DAMNED POOL. (Or take it back to TigerDirect where I bought it.) Whatever -- I'll got out and get an OS7 computer . It was my wife's poor choice (sorry, honey), but I have to live with it! We're now stuck with the odious OS8 "Tiles" rubbish until someone at Microsoft stops SNIFFING GLUE and changes back to the simple OS7 interface. Why does a nation of tens of millions have to relearn using the ubiquitous Microsoft computer? I can't even turn the darn machine OFF without going through six steps.

Please send me an estimate for the cost of the Owner's Manual for OS8 ("Tiles") once you respond to my message. Thanks.

Sincerely yours,

(Mr.) Anonymous

The short answer to "Why do we want to keep our guns?", Mr. President, is (to be vulgar), SH*T HAPPENS. And we don't want shit to happen to us.

So, we'll keep our guns, Mr. "I can be more flexible in my second term."

Police flasher





Dear friends and supporters:

I have to focus on other projects from time to time -- to make some do-re-mi, for example. To keep up with the ever-changing firearms law landscape, you should read some of the following writers:

Emily Miller at The Washington Times: She has a Twitter account (@EmilyMiller) that is worth following, and a page at the Times with a digest of all of her articles, here. She covers DC, but also Maryland and Virginia; we're what you call a "tri-state" or tri-jurisdictional area...

Mike Stollenwerk, DC Gun Rights Examiner: His blog is here. He also links to other good "Examiners".

David Codrea, The War on Guns. (Non-local, so it's of broader reach.)

And Say Uncle, which is like Instapundit -- pithy -- but for gun-related news mostly.

I will check in to post occasionally, especially more gun sweepstakes from time to time (for you, Mike, and others who need protection but have other more pressing responsiblities at this time).

Thanks for reading DC Handgun Info. P.S. After receiving some complaints about non-existent photos in my Ruger Collectors Association Harrisburg 2012 show series, I will post the photos to Flickr and redo the five posts in that series. See below for those articles/posts/links.

17, Glock






Another gem from the VCDL e-newsletter:

LEO encounter in Hopewell - A mixed scorecard

A [VCDL] member sent [...] the email below on an interaction he had with the Hopewell [Virginia] Sheriff's Department recently.  
 
While the stop went uneventfully for the most part, there was one place where the needle went scratching over the record.  The police should not be disarming a citizen during a traffic stop unless they can articulate why they felt threatened by that individual.  Here a CHP holder goes out of his way to advise the officer he is carrying and where the gun is located and, as "thank you," the officer disarms him during the traffic stop! [emphasis added]
 
The member follows the officer's directions and unloads the gun and hands it over.  This is DANGEROUS for a variety of reasons:
 
1.  When loading and unloading a gun, you increase the chance that an accidental discharge could happen.  Imagine the result if that accidental discharge strikes the officer, you, or some third party!  Also, police officers have been known to disarm permit holders and then had no idea how to unload or handle the gun safely, endangering everyone.  Guns should just be left where they are.
 
2.  A back up officer arriving on the scene could walk up to the car, unbeknownst to either of you, only to see you holding a gun and think you are about to shoot the officer who stopped you.  That could be fatal for you.  If an officer insists on taking your gun, then insist that he take the gun off you himself. My question is: Does this deputy disarm off-duty officers in the same fashion when he stops one of them?  If not, then he has double standards.
 
This is why I don't personally have any such hard-and-fast rule on telling an officer I am armed.
 
----------------
 
I got pulled over today [2012] for the first time in forever on the way to work...It was the first time I have been pulled over since I had my carry permit.  I did not catch the deputy's name (Hopewell Sheriff's Department) that pulled me over, but he handled the situation like a professional and with respect.
 
I kept my hands on the wheel, put the car in park, rolled down the window...I told him that even though VA is not a "must notify" state, that out of courtesy and respect, I had a permit and was carrying a .380 handgun in my right pocket.  I asked him how he would be the most comfortable in handling the situation before I got my wallet out.  He only asked that I clear the weapon and let him hold onto it until the end of the stop.  He did not order me out of the car at gunpoint, take all my ammo, etc. as I have heard in other cities and states.
 
At the end of the stop, he told me that my "+5 driving points on my license and cooperation today bailed me out with a warning."
 
First off, LEO's have some of the toughest jobs out there and put up with a lot of crap.  You get out of an encounter what you put into it.  I have found 99% of the time that if you are respectful, truthful, and act like you have common sense, they tend to reciprocate that and appreciate it.  If you are a smart ass and disrespectful, it will be a long day for you.  They are just doing their job like anyone else.  [VCDL comment by PVC:  Agreed.]
 
Thanks again to Hopewell Sheriff's Department for handling an encounter with an armed citizen with professionalism and like it was just another stop.

Smith #2, .38 Special, Model 10




The orginal raison-d'etre for this site was to help you register your handgun/firearm in DC. The procedure used to be as many as 15-17 steps (estimated), but now it can be negotiated in only six (6) steps, per the official D.C. firearms registration site.

Click below to be directed to the site:

Firearm Registration: Complete Registration Procedures

One of the steps has am important note:

NOTE: As of July 1, 2012, residents will no longer be required to take a training course in order to register a firearm. Instead, applicants will be required to watch a video on firearm safe handling provided free of charge by the District, or to substantiate that he or she has otherwise met the minimum requirements as noted above.

This simplification was wrought partly by the efforts of journalist-activist Emily Miller at The Washington Times after testimony to the D.C. City Council! You can follow her at @EmilyMiller on Twitter. As I posted before (See "Hiatus" post below), Ms. Miller's gun articles are well done -- check her out.

To quote the always-interesting VCDL (Virginia Citizens' Defense League) e-newsletter:

The D.C. City Council is having a hearing on changing their firearms' laws to make it an administrative penalty (pay a fine), and not a criminal act, for a non-resident who mistakenly bring a gun or ammunition into D.C.

Here's the link to the D.C. Council website soliciting comments. Check it out!
