If you’ve never shot a SIG SAUER Legion, it’s hard to imagine what a difference a well-tuned trigger’s short-reset makes on a DA/SA pistol. And if you can’t afford a Legion . . . Grayguns Perfection Action Package for SIG SAUER Pistols
Combined with a Grayguns custom curved or straight trigger – in alloy steel or aluminum – the kit is carefully engineered to provide a dead smooth double action pull, clean single action break, positive tactile reset and minimum overtravel. The kit includes the exact components Grayguns installs when completing in-house action work. Installation yields a reduction in both actual and perceived double action pull weight, while maintaining an appropriate single action weight for competition or self defense, based on the kit selected.
“For our second generation kit, we redesigned components from the ground up to incorporate SIG’s Short Reset Trigger (SRT) Safety Lever,” continued Gray. “We’ve introduced two, tool-steel sears. Our Self Defense sear provides a single action pull weight appropriate for carry, and our Competition sear features a single action pull weight appropriate for competition or the range.”
As we reported earlier today, The Trace is focusing on gun theft to convince Americans not to buy them (a.k.a., victim shaming and blaming). Michael Bloomberg’s other house organ, Business Insider, got the memo (as well as the rest of the civilian disarmament media cabal) . . . Criminals steal more than 237,000 guns from legal American gun owners every year
Criminals are stealing guns from legal owners in increasing numbers, fueling violent crime in America.
In 2016, more than 237,000 guns were reported stolen in the US, a more than 68% increase from 2005, an investigation from NBC and The Trace found.
In the last decade alone, 2 million guns were reported stolen, although that number is likely higher because many incidents of gun theft are never even reported. One estimate from the nonpartisan think-tank Center for American Progress puts the number of stolen guns per year at 380,000 . . .
The source of the problem, experts say, is negligence on the part of many gun owners. Criminals are able to rob legal owners of their guns in many cases because their weapons are simply not secured in safes or lock boxes.
Several. That’s more than one, right? . . . Guns handed into West Yorkshire Police over the last few days
Several guns have been handed in already during a weapons amnesty in West Yorkshire.
The amnesty is running until November 26 and police will also accept all weapons including knives, ammunition and other offensive weapons.
“New scrutiny” because Connecticut still hasn’t completely tossed the court case against Bushmaster for “inspiring” the Newtown spree killer . . . Gun ads continue after mass shootings but with new scrutiny
The ad campaigns by major gun makers continue unabated after mass shootings at a Las Vegas country music concert and a Texas church, and the slick messages are big drivers of sales ahead of Black Friday, by far the heaviest shopping day each year for firearms.
But the marketing tactics for the semi-automatic weapons known as AR rifles are under new scrutiny following the recent attacks. Gun-control activists say the ads risk inspiring the next shooter, while gun-rights advocates insist the weapons are being blamed for the works of deranged individuals . . .
“The reason these guns have become so popular is because they’re like an iPhone 10,” [Adam] Winkler said. “They’re smooth, sleek, cool-looking.”
Wither the police shotgun? SC Highway Patrol Wants to Give Troopers New Rifles
Mass shootings seem to occur more and more often. So agencies across the country are looking to beef up their response in case it happens in their town. And SCHP is one of those agencies. They’re asking lawmakers to approve more than half-a-million dollars for semi-automatic patrol rifles. . . .
“We won’t be able to protect ourselves or our citizens if we don’t have the proper equipment. and if you use the shotgun vs the rifle you may take out innocent bystanders who are just there,” said Colonel Williamson. “A shotgun fires multiple projectiles as it goes down the lane and if you think about the type of environments where mass violence or a terror attack occurs, it happens in a generally populated area,” explained Sgt. Pope.
From the state where gun rights go to die . . . North Jersey towns protest federal concealed carry gun bill
“If anyone is going to have a concealed weapon, it should be based on an application that should be made to the appropriate authority in New Jersey,” Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich said. “I’ll be damned if a state with liberality hands out concealed gun permits and I’ve got them in my town every day.”
Sokolich said Fort Lee, which passed a resolution opposing the bill on Nov. 9, is respectful of the Constitution and recognizes the Second Amendment, and he acknowledges that some people’s livelihoods require them to carry a concealed weapon. He sees that as a very small portion of the population, however.
