    "Multi Fire Glock"

    There's a letter to the editor today in my local newspaper saying that ordinary citizens shouldn't be allowed to own "multi fire Glocks".

    Would anyone care to explain to me just what this is?

    Checking out any newspaper lately will result in seriously flawed opinions. The misinformed need some educating ... but sometimes you can't fix stupid.

    Maybe it's like that 1911 that I've seen where they basically have two guns side-by-side as one gun. That way when you pull the triggers two bullets fire.

    Obviously its a cooking device for backwoods survivalists. Eighteen hot meals, no matter the weather.

    Every camper should have two.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    It's like "multi-speed transmissions" in cars. Our forefathers were well served with a single-speed transmission in their early Model A's and Benz'. Multi-speed transmissions enabled people to flout speed laws with impunity, just like firearms that can fire more than one shot without time consuming reloading only enable the wicked in society. ... and we really, really need an ironic/sarcastic font, don't we?

    I'm glad someone finally figured out a use for those plastic guns

    I'm sure they would burn pretty good if needed

    In all seriousness, the entire letter was full of typical anti-gun crap and seemed to have been written by someone who just googled a couple of gun words and threw them in for dramatic effect without actually understanding what they meant. The main crux of the letter was talking about the fortune 500 companies having a stake in assault weapon manufacture, including "Colt Defense, a spin off of the maker of the .44-40 revolver". Here's a snippet with "multi fire glock" in context

    Make no mistake, debate over gun control is going to become very heated. Citi- zens feel the government is trying to take away their gun rights! In fact, when the law is modified there will be a definition with clarity on the sale and ownership of AK47-type rifles and Glock multi-fire handguns. When the battle reaches into the pocket of the greedy, amor- al Fortune 500 corporations, we will see if the people of the United States vs. the powerful gun control lobby will prevail with more com- mon sense.
    (By the way, does anyone know when Colt last chambered the SAA in 44-40? I don't think they've made one since the '20s)

    According to the Colt Catalog, the Colt SAA is available today in .44-40 caliber (Blue/color case finish or full blue finish) for only $1,390 orNickel for $1,680. (Also available in .45LC, .44Special, .38-40 and .357Magnum). Pax...

    I think a "multi-fire Glock" would be a Glock with the magazine inserted.

    Normal people would think that after. Who knows what journalists and anti-gunners think it means? They're probably concerned its a tool for a serial arsonist.

    Technically wouldn't it be best described as a "single-fire, multi-round Glock/Sig/Taurus/1911/S&W M&P/Kimber,etc/all revolvers, too"? (Perhaps there should be a ban on idiots writing letters to the editor.) Pax...

    Multi-fire glocks are the perfect accessory to go with your double pump action shotgun. I personally like to load my multi-fire glock with heat seeking bullets as sometimes the shoulder thing that goes up obstructs my sights and makes it hard to aim the old fashoined way.

    Any Glock with a standard-capacity factory-issue magazine which is loaded with tracer rounds?
    Esp. if there hasn't been much rain, those can start fires.

    Do you have a link to the article?

    I find this video to be very relevant. It is a police officer actually explaining the true function of semi-auto vs a full-auto rifle.

    Government can neither guarantee nor grant safety. The supreme affirmed as much when they stated police have no duty to protect you.

    I know. It was just the first smart-alecky remark to tease you that popped to mind.

    The newspaper is the Frankfort State Journal, www.state-journal.com

    The paper puts PDFs of the of the newspaper online, but they require a subscription to the paper to access them. Normally the letters to the editor are also published on the website in the form of a clickable/linkable article, but for whatever reason none of the opinion pages were for this Sunday's paper. I really wish that I could provide a link, but can't other. If you really want to read it, pay $5 at the link above and view page D2 for 12/30/12.

    If you hold a blowtorch to the frame of a Glock, it will become a single-fire Glock. If you use more than one torch in different locations on the frame, it will become a multi-fire Glock for a time, and then revert to single-fire state.

    Thanks for the laugh.

    As for the double pump gun though I think I found the video of it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdnsJD7OmuM

    You don't NEED a vehicle with an engine. Stick with a horse. One horse power. That's all any person needs. But even that may be an excessive need. So, no horse for you. Stick with the Cadillac's at the end of your legs. That's all you need. Think of the children. And the environment.
