Are they going to look for the bullet...did the bullet exit the aircraft??? and hit the EARTH??? or, or, or !!!
You don’t like big boy guns?
Glocks aren’t likely to discharge if you keep your booger hook in your nose.
Well, if you look it up in the dictionary, you might just find the picture in post #16.
“Think about all the thousands of things that could go wrong on that plane and youll sleep a lot better.”
Hey at least I know the plane is maintained by the best union workers available.
a pic of Sean Connery always makes my day
Unless it ws a Glock shoved into a flight bag without being in a holster. The “safety” is on the trigger and it can go off without being handled. Something presses on the trigger and *BANG*.
“the pilot is part of TSAs Federal Flight Deck Officer (FFDO) program, which trains pilots to carry guns on flights.”
“Are they going to look for the bullet...did the bullet exit the aircraft??? and hit the EARTH??? or, or, or !!!”
It most likely flew at least 5 miles before hitting another airplane. Thankfully that airplane was able to land safely as well.
Bond’s appealing to Pussy’s maternal instincts. LOL!
Like a revolver?
oopppps! never mind
Let’s see..... “Hey Harry, did you see my new Glock 40 cal.”? “You know they don’t have an external safety. It’s sort of built into the trigger.” “Oh no, I didn’t place that much pressure on it.”
I hope they also take his pilot’s license.
“Now, Pussy, you know a lot more about planes than guns. That’s a Smith and Wesson 45, and if you fire at me at this close range, the bullet will pass through me and the fuselage like a blowtorch through butter. The cabin will depressurize, and we’ll both be sucked into outer space together. If that’s how you want to enter the United States, you’re welcome. As for me, I prefer the easy way.”...007 to Pussy Galore in GOLDFINGER
Glocks do ...
Glocks are designed for cops and gangbangers. A real gun is more along the lines of a 1911. A Beretta is slso a far better weapon than a Glock.
Please cite a single real event where a Glock discharged a round without the trigger being depressed.
what kind of gun was used?
revolver or semi pistol?
why was a round in the chamber, if a semiautomatic pistol??
Revolvers don’t have trigger safeties. Glocks have that totally stupid and useless trigger safety.
I have a round in the chamber AT ALL TIMES, but I only carry those with external thumb-operated safeties. I wouldn’t own a Glock personally.
