    America's Gun

    Recent article referencing Glocks and high capacity magazines (of course the writer wore out the word "clip"). Long article and was front cover of this magazine. It's not what we want to read, but we always need to be aware of, and counter their arguments. Some feedback to the magazine would be good too.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Read the whole thing, have a pretty girl hand me a glass of Booker's, and read it to me, and it's a bedtime story.

    Too bad it scares the cheese off the Brady's crackers.

    Not a bad writeup actually.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    A surprisingly enjoyable read. The author did a fair amount of research.
    Good info on the 'Glock invasion.'
    The author seemed to believe however, that 'clip' and 'magazine' are synonyms... or perhaps he knows better, but chose the term 'joe-public' uses just for the sake of reader comprehension.
    It would seem we're losing the battle over the proper terminology.

    No mention of the 1911, or Browning! You would think from this that Glock invented the auto loading pistol.

    Kerby, I relize this was just a typo but the HP has been around for 70 to 80 years.

    More than a million made, and still in production. The 1911 made for over 100 years. I wonder how many millions of these two were in our hands before Glock started makeing plastic guns?

    Not to mention lugers and walthers

    Only a one off mention of a Beretta too. But the article is about Glock after all!
