Earlier today, we ran a story on drop safety issues with the Honor Guard pistol. Our report revealed that Patrick Roberts of The Firearm Rack made the gun discharge by striking it with a hammer and dropping it onto the rear of the slide. [Click here to view the video.] This afternoon, TTAG Testing and Evaluation Editor Jeremy S. duplicated the test shown in the video, confirming Mr. Roberts’ claims . . .
In an interview this afternoon, Mr. Roberts told TTAG that he discovered the drop safety problem in August 2017. Mr. Roberts said he called Honor Guard’s president Gary Ramey and left a voicemail raising the alarm.
Shortly thereafter, one of The Firearm Blog’s editors texted Mr. Roberts (who was working for the website at the time) spiking the story. Mr. Roberts provided the following screencap of that exchange.
We spoke to Mr. Ramey who had no comment. We’ve also reached out to The Firearm Blog for comment. As of this writing, we haven’t received a response. If we do, we’ll publish it here.
SIG SAUER recalled their P320 when the gunblogosphere discovered the same drop safety issue. We don’t expect anything less from Honor Defense. Then again, we wouldn’t expect a firearms website to withhold life-or-death information from its readers.
