Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 11.31.38 AM

The Trop Gun Shop is a Pennsylvania-based Internet gun seller. They recently sent an email blast to their customers advising them that GLOCK had “terminated” Trop’s participation in their Blue Label Program. That’s the discount deal (around $75 to $100 off msrp) Gaston’s mob offers sworn law enforcement officers; EMT’s, fire fighters, volunteer fire fighters and paramedics; military personnel; corrections officers (including Parole and Probation Officers), state licensed security companies; court judges, District Attorneys and Deputy District Attorneys; and LE Academy Cadets. Trop reports that GLOCK demanded a look at their customers’ 4473’s. Here’s their announcement . . .

Armatix Retailer Wants More People to Buy Guns

SMARTGUNS-2-articleLarge-v2

As we noted earlier today, after a couple of abortive attempts, Armatix finally has someone selling its iP1 “smart gun” to the public. A fortune.com article reported that DB Guns & Smithing is selling the “personalized” weapon, a prospect many people have opposed due to the potential for triggering New Jersey’s law requiring all handguns sold there to be similarly equipped. TTAG talked to Doug this afternoon about his decision to sell the Armatix .22 handguns and he explained his rationale . . .

Armatix iP1 ‘Smart Gun’ Has a Dealer

db

“(T)hat’s why Doug has to be so hush-hush. If his last name were made public, people would try to put him out of business and, perhaps, threaten to kill him. That’s what happened to the last two gun dealers who tried to sell this gun.” Doug is the proprietor of DB Guns & Smithing. And according to a fortune.com article, he’s been selling the Armatix iP1 “smart gun” since January, apparently on the down low. You may remember that dealers in both California and Maryland had planned to sell the iP1 .22, but backed off when they received, um, negative feedback from gun owners. So you can probably understand Doug’s reluctance to ID himself . . .

Magpul Announces Recall for GLOCK Magazines

GetImage

At the SHOT Show this year, Magpul unveiled their latest creation: replacement GLOCK magazines. Designed for the G17, these mags will fit anything in that same line including the popular G19. Their main claim to fame is that they’re cheaper than the factory GLOCK mags and made of a single material instead of the composite metal and plastic magazines that GLOCK offers. Things were looking peachy as the first batches left the factory, but there were apparently a few minor errors that are causing problems, and as a result Magpul is replacing every magazine free of charge . . .

How Remington Can Make Lemonade From the Rifle Trigger Recall

P1120652-900x600

As we noted yesterday, Remington has settled a class action suit, the terms of which require the company to offer free replacement trigger jobs on over 7.8 million rifles in circulation. RF dusted off his Burroughs adding machine and grokked that the job would take them somewhere on the order of a decade to complete. And that assumes they hire 50 people to do the job, working seven days a week. Neither of those things is likely. On the other side of the equation, Remington will only get a fraction of those guns back  . . .

By Brandon via concealedcarry.org

A reader, Victor, posted his recent Costco story on concealednation.org’s Facebook page, and it was intriguing enough to share with everyone else. I spoke with him afterwards to get a little more of the story as well. Here goes: “So… I stopped by Costco in Mesa Arizona today. I was carrying concealed and I guess the doorman noticed a slight bulge in my right hip under my shirt. He then tell me I can’t come in the store armed.” . . .

Jeremy Alcede Commands Our Attention Again…This Time From Jail

Jeremy-Alcede-courtesy-blog.seattlepi.com_

Jeremy Alcede has gotten himself into hot water once again. He originally popped up on TTAG’s radar when he came out in support of Frank Lautenberg’s and Carolyn McCarthy’s attempt to ban online ammo sales. This time the dispute is over…wait for it…his Facebook page. Alcede is the now former owner of Tactical Firearms in Katy, Texas. Alcede lost his business during bankruptcy proceedings back in December of 2014 and Boyert Shooting Center took over all of his remaining assets. Boyert asserts that Alcede’s Facebook page and followers are part of the business’s assets and sought court assistance to force Alcede to hand them over. Boyert claims the page’s followers are “valuable assets and should stay with the company.” The courts have so far agreed . . .
