Something that caught my eye the other day on youtube, the topic was the new Sig 320 being adopted. Someone said the military needed to get rid of the outdated Beretta design and go with something more modern.
Then the person said something along the lines of “modern like a glock.” Or otherwise implied Glock is a modern design.
I started laughing and thought to myself the guy in the video knows nothing of handgun history.
In 1982 when Glock hit the streets it was thrown to the forefront of the gun control battle by having a polymer frame. The anti-gun leftist claimed a Glock would slip past airport metal detectors. The anti-gun media did one thing, they gave Glock all the free advertising the company could want.
From 1982 – 1986 I was in high school. Something teenagers did back then is we watched the news. Video games were far and few between. There was no internet, smart phone or tablet. there was no Netflix, Youtube, Hulu or amazon prime. The vast majority of people had 3 or 4 TV channels we picked up with an antenna. From 5:30 – 6:30 the only thing to do was watch the news. So watch the news we did.
Even after I graduated high school in 1986 I remember the anti-gunners beating the gun control drum over the Glock.
Maryland is working on passing a new series of gun control laws. Some of which will endanger national security by restricting the types of magazines Beretta can import to its factories.
Beretta makes the M9 service pistol for the military and various law enforcement agencies.
Maryland is restricting the types of magazines Beretta can import into the state.
Maryland is restricting the types of magazines Beretta can keep in their warehouses.
Beretta being able to produce weapons and magazines for the military and law enforcement is a matter of national security.
Do the liberals not realize that Maryland will be losing jobs, and will also be jeopardizing national security if new gun laws are passed?
Who needs a job when the government provides food stamps, phones, housing and medical care?
Not only is Maryland sacrificing national on the alter of false security, but they will also be driving up unemployment and driving up taxes for those of you who still have a job.
Ok Survivalist, its time to talk about firearms every serious prepper should own.
Whether you are in an urban survival situation, have a homestead you plan on using as a Bug Out Location, bugging in, or bugging out to the wilderness, lets put together a solid list of well preforming firearms.
Requirements for this list require the firearm to have a long history of civilian or military service, and must have a reputation of being reliable.
Ruger 10/22 is the bees knees of 22 rifles. There are a lot of 22 rifles out there, but few of them can compare to the reliability and the customization of the Ruger 10/22.
My first experience with a Ruger 10/22 was sometime in 1984 or 1985 when 3 of my buddies and I were on a 3 day camping trip. We loaded up an aluminum boat and headed out to one of the bayous close to Bridge City, Texas.
On the second day of the camping trip after eating lunch, Allen and I took the dishes to the bayou to wash them. While we were washing the dishes, we saw a nutria rat on the other side of the slough. 1 shot with the Ruger 10/22 took care of the animal. Allen and I got in the aluminum boat we used to reach the camping spot, then paddled over to retrieve the nutria rat.
We skinned the nutria rat and brought it back to the camping spot where it was roasted over a camp fire and eaten. Even though we had just eaten dinner, it was just canned chili and we were still hungry. The meat from that nutria rat really hit the spot.
