Rhetorical question for any Fudd friends: Why would anyone NEED more than 10 rounds in a gun to hunt? Answer: Because I’m not hunting. I’m defending my family in my home from multiple armed home invaders. As Assistant Chief Mark Herman put it in the video above, “Folks here in Texas in their homes, they’re are armed. And, uh, you know, it is what it is.”

In the video above, Dutch cops “storm” a man who’d taken over Dutch broadcaster NOS’ news studio. The lead cop has his finger planted firmly on the trigger. The other has considerable difficulty holstering his standard-issue Walter P99 Q NL (that recently replaced the old Walter P5). Was it stress that caused the cops to fail to be operators operating operationally? In fact, stress degrade firearms self-defense skills like searching for a suitable link for an Israeli supermodel degrades my ability to finish this sentence in a timely manner. How well do you perform under pressure? Have you ever done force-on-force training? If so, what did you learn there?

WFAA Forgets to Mention Membership Numbers for Huey P. Newton Gun Club

Ever since I first noticed the media noticing Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, I’ve complained of carefully chosen camera angles. It’s the Moms’ media enablers’ attempts to hide the fact that MDA events are sparsely attended. Well, here it is again. Except this time, Dallas’ WFAA used editing to hide the fact that the police-averse Huey P. Newtown Gun Club consists of six – count ’em six – members. The written version of the story is similarly bereft of numerical context . . .

GLOCKs are perfect. Well, they’re profitable. Wildly profitable. If Gaston Glock’s mob set out to improve GLOCK perfection – as oxymoronic as that might seem – every penny spent upgrading the gun would come out of the company’s bottom line. And, potentially, raise the gun’s price. Why bother? Why perfect perfection and punt profits? How many pistoleros say “I wish my GLOCK was more accurate?” Enough, apparently, for Wilson Combat to stretch its 1911-o-centric brand to sell upgraded GLOCK barrels. For $159. Is it worth it? How much accuracy do you need in an everyday carry gun? As much as possible, I reckon. In other words, shut up and take my money. Or does that decision evoke the old “fool and his money” paradigm?
