    Afghanistan Armed

    I just caught the last part of a news story on Euro CNN,
    about women in Afghanistan.. being armed and helping
    out the police force there.

    They showed them all with autos...looked to be Sigmas

    22,000 Sigmas were sent to Afghanistan to be used by the National Army, National Police and the Border Patrol. So it probably was a Sigma. They are the Allied Forces model SW9VE with the parkerized slide.

    That are used to kill American soldiers. Glock sells to Iran knowing they supply terrorists. To some folks that does not matter. To me it is huge I will never ever knowingly support a company that intentionally supplies weapons to our enemies to kill our warriors, our brothers, sisters, our sons and daughters.
    Plenty of American companies sell excellent weapons that donít intentionally sell weapons to terrorists.

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    Yessir, I have an Allied Forces Sigma SW9VE myself. People always think it is a Glock because they are also all black with the Melonite slide instead of stainless.

    Great little auto. ....Even if it is a Glock-Knock....

    Amen brother! Poo poo on Glock!

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    +1 Just one more reason I will never buy a Glock.

    Let me know if you ever want to part with it. I've been wanting the Allied Forces model but can't find any around here.

    I am glad to know this. I hope to get a second handgun soon, but Glock is out.
