No (GLOCK-brand GLOCK) blue guns for you. TS writes, “I was looking for a SIG P229 blue training gun and I noticed a big green notice on the top of their page. Why would GLOCK forbid sales to the general public?” Your guess is as good as mine.
GLOCKS ARE BACK!
Glock has recently issued a New Contract with Ring’s Manufacturing Inc. (BLUEGUNS) to manufacture Glock Blueguns as we have been doing for the past 10 years. This new contract states that Glock restricts the sale of Glock Blueguns to the Public. We are restricted to selling Glock Blueguns to the Police, Military, Trainers, Police Distributors, or Holster Manufacturers. We ask that our customers abide by these rules and refrain from offering Glock Blueguns to the Public on the Internet, Publications or General Catalogs. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your support.
Taking a page from Emily Miller’s playbook, a Massachusetts reporter has written a series of articles detailing his efforts to obtain a firearms license. He wrapped it up with the final installment Monday, having finally received his license last Thursday and immediately using it to pick up a Smith & Wesson 637-2 revolver. The final tally? 150 days, “from when I walked into my local police department to learn how to get a firearm license to when I finally received it in the mail Thursday.” That includes 85 days from his interview ’til the completion of the background check and approval of the license, as well as the 40 days it took just to get an appointment with the Police Department’s firearms-licensing clerk after he completed a firearms-safety course. A right delayed is… ?
Team Smith & Wesson members accounted for three national championships at the recent 2013 International Defensive Pistol (IDPA) Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Teammates Jerry Miculek (Enhanced Service Revolver), Josh Lentz (Stock Service Revolver) and Randi Rogers (High Lady) won their respective divisions by a combined 197 seconds. This is Rogers’ first championship shooting for Team S&W.
Then get angry, America. Get so angry with these heartless gun nut bastards that you stop their disgusting campaign dead in its tracks.

In his defense, he wasn’t referring to all gun owners as “heartless gun nut bastards” (right?), he was only referring to the SAF and their scheduling of Guns Save Lives on the anniversary of Sandy Hook.
You carry a gun to church? A masked intruder entered a Pentecostal church in Holyoke, Massachusetts recently, and announced his intention to relieve the congregants of their earthly belongings. To back up his request, he brandished a handgun. After gathering up items, including cellphones, from several of the worshippers, he beat feet without further incident. Police were called after he had gone, and arrived just in time to fill out some reports.
