  • Canik TP9: Making Glock Scared...for $319 [FULL REVIEW] (video only)

    The Nutnfancy Project ^ | 5-27-2014 | nutnfancy
    This gun should scare Glock. For that matter Walther, Springfield, S&W, and all the rest too. In this original review you will see why. Produced with ISO 9000 quality standards, the Canik TP9 gets right just about everything I care about. Reviewed are its toughness, reliability, accuracy, ergos, weight, firepower, and more. What results is a GTW handgun for just $319. Testing proved it is on par with all HOF GTW options in TNP. It represents screaming value, almost unheard of these days. Get it now before the price goes up and it probably will from this video. Enjoy. -...

    On February 27, 2014, Bearing Arms Editor Bob Owens wrote an article asking one of the more relevant questions extant: “Does the NYPD Have A Training Problem?” Bob’s article tells the story of two rookie NYPD officers who, pursuing a pair of fleeing criminals, fired a total of seven shots and entirely missed the criminal that had turned and fired at them. Unfortunately, the criminal’s marksmanship was far superior and he, firing three rounds, hit one of the officers with all three, once in each leg and once in the groin. The officer is recovering. The NYPD is not publicizing...

    In this dramatic video, a snowmobiler is traveling along a remote snowmobile trail. A moose is blocking the trail, and the snowmobiler does everything they can to defuse the situation without bloodshed. They make considerable noise to warn the moose that they are there. Snowmobiles do not have a reverse, and the track is narrow and hemmed in by thick woods. To get off the snowmobile would make the snowmobiler much more vulnerable. In the deep, fluffy snow, he and or his machine are likely to bog down. Unknown to the viewer, a companion snowmobiler is coming up...

    I have to admit being taken aback by this reward poster at the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation website. I can see the utility in grabbing a graphic from the Internet that is unlikely to draw a complaint from the owner. It may even be in the public domain. But I find the juxtaposition of Glock Perfection with a double child murder case to be a little disturbing. The pistol may be useful in the trial of Kevin Sweat, who has given a confession of sorts. A hearing has been scheduled to determine if the video of the confession will...

    "Somebody picked the wrong girl." You'd think the party that claims to support strong, independent women would love her. OK, no you wouldn't. Because they don't. The party in question loves a woman who knows where to go to get government benefits. A woman like this is doing it all wrong: actually a lot more dramatic and intense than you might have expected. Every time she goes back to the couch (what is she watching, by the way?) and sits down, only to hear that ominous knock on the door once again, you're really starting to get concerned that the...

According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV's, provided by the United States, are now missing. The vehicles feature GPS navigation as well as various sets of weapon mounts and can be outfitted with smoke-grenade launchers. U.S. Special Forces undergo significant training to operate these vehicles. Fox News is told the vehicles provided to the Libyans are now gone. Along with the GMV's, hundreds of weapons are now missing, including roughly 100 Glock pistols...

    TEC ^ | 06/19/2013 | Michael Snyder
    All over the United States, frustrated homeowners are banding together, arming themselves and patrolling their own streets. One of the primary reasons this is happening is because police budgets all over the nation are being slashed at a time when violent crime rates in the United States are increasing and many our our largest cities are being transformed into crime-infested war zones. So instead of waiting for government to come up with a solution, many Americans are taking matters into their own hands. For example, one community group in Milwaukie, Oregon has started posting flyers with an ominous message for...

In the first article I provided information for several gun manufacturers that could be contacted to come on board with this boycott, including Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson and Remington. Well, now we know where Remington stands. They stand on the side of government as they have let it be known that they will be...

    In an interview that will air on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 on April 9, Gabby Giffords looks on from her mother's porch while Mark Kelly shoots bottles and clay pots in the Arizona desert with a Glock 19 9mm. The gun is actually Giffords's, but Kelly shoots it and wasn't shy about admitting he had a 17-round magazine in it. Ironically, 17 rounds exceeds the 10 round limit that was being pushed in the Senate in February when Kelly spoke in favor of banning them. Nevertheless, after CNN filmed Kelly target shooting, he justified using a 17-round magazine for the...

    On March 22 ABC's Nightline did a segment focused on how Glock handguns are the scourge of the anti-gun world. Before the segment started, anchors teased it as being framed around America's love for the Glock. But once it began, they criticized the way Glock advertises it pistols and the way Glock refurbishes and sells used pistols. Throughout the segment, every time legal uses of a Glock were highlighted, the anchor made sure to point out facts like "Congressman Gabby Giffords was shot by a Glock in Tuscon," and "Adam Lanza carried a Glock into Sandy Hook Elementary."

At least one of the people working on the DefCad site has already printed a floor-plate and magazine body for a Glock pistol. The early Glock magazines were made of plastic, so they are well suited for this process. We will not know how these designs will hold up until they are actually printed and tested.

It was later returned to the agent, who was traveling on Southwest Airlines from Denver to Houston. The DEA has stayed mum on the gun, declining to confirm the agency's ties to the...

Less than 20 years later, he was the world's leading manufacturer of handguns, and the business born in his garage had annual revenues of more than $100 million.
