Goggle this 16-year-old Canadian's science project, and then tell me how confident you feel in the future reliability of a polymer frame firearm, if things should get REALLY dicey...
All-steel, all the time...
heard about the joint FBI/DHS covert research into magnet-based "mobile firearm protective retrieval" (MFPR
) operations, haven't you? Supposedly, the feds have figured out that vans (with fictitious consumer service company signage) sweeping residential areas will pull all-steel guns (1911s, revolvers, etc.) into some kind of combination net/sponge contraption.Secret contracts have been let toGM and Chryslerfor the vehicles. They jumped at the chancebecause of their financial woes.Once ole Obama wins reelection in 2012 and then declares a SOE... those vans will be ready to roll....
Please, Dreamer, pick up an XD, a Walther, a GLOCK...whatever
. Just in case.
I happened to go by a gun shop this past Thursday and saw a G22RTF, so I picked it up to see for myself. It did
feel very sticky in my bare hand. It was OK, but I didn't really like it. And then I wondered what it would take to break off some of the "polymids," say, accidentally. I think that might be a problem, though, I wanna trust GLOCK in having engineered it correctly.
say that the new cocking serrations make it easier to rack the slide. No slipping with the new style.
