Alright boys and girls, something happened in early December 2019 that kind of flew under everyone’s radar. The Heckler & Koch HK VP9 (or SFP9 as it’s know everywhere else in the world) got it’s first ever military contract. Who got it? Well, we’ll get to that. Prior to this new contract that HK picked up, the VP9 had only been adopted by a limited number of law enforcement agencies (predominantly German ones), and was being passed over for the M&P line or the Glock line.
Alrighty everyone! After the absolute ball buster that was the Glock 44 being dropped yesterday after a gigantic build-up of anticipation, Smith & Wesson subtly dropped that they would be adding another handgun to the E-Z line-up.
Unfortunately, not many people are taking that energy to find things that could actually make a difference. So, when I hear about organizations trying to make a difference like “Hold My Guns” it makes me happy. Instead of diving into the divisive politics and heating the political debates up even more, we have people that are trying to make a difference without stripping everyone of their natural rights.
The NRA (National Rifle Association) Pays Felons Holy Shit Smear, here we go. One of the arguments we hear from NRA members is that felons shouldn’t be able to own guns period. They did something bad and they should pay for that for the rest of their life. Mind you, they say felons period, not…
If, if, we as a community are going to act, we need to wait for the facts to come out, and then we need to act like the German Blitzkrieg. It shouldn’t matter if an individual is in custody or not if I’m being blunt and all of you are being serious. If you’re wanting to ride out for a cause to kick shit off, you need to make sure it’s a just cause, a factual cause, and not something that’s been distorted beyond the realms of reality. Otherwise, you’ll just be labeled as a terrorist, and it will be easy to sway public opinion into seeing it that way.
Springfield Armory Hellcat Springfield Armory announced the Hellcat today. To be 100% honest, I rolled my eyes at the name because it’s almost as stupid as the “9-1-1” micro-.380 they made. Little commentary on my part, and then I’ll give you the details you already know about. Besides the stupid fucking name (sorry, Boomers,…
Let’s cut to the chase. Mr. Canterbury has a history of being anti-gun. He has a history of supporting anti-gun legislation. Canterbury as the leader of the Fraternal Order of Police testified for Sonia Sotomayor to become a judge on the Supreme Court. There’s been other matters that he has voiced opinions on as the leader of the F.O.P, including pushing against National Reciprocity/Constitutional Carry.
Since NRAAM there has been a ton of infighting between board members at the NRA. You have board members going after other board members, and you have NRA executives making statements that are blatant lies (I’ll be going more into this in another article). For me, Mr. Brownell stepping down as a board member doesn’t come as a surprise.
So, earlier this month (May) Canik debuted the ONE series of the TP9. The ONE series is supposed to be the budget version of the TP9 line of pistols. If you’ve followed the TP9 since it hit the market, these prices may get your a little red under the ears. Now, before I go into the price, I’ll go over what they’re doing to bring the price down.
Alright, so the day that I posted the photos of the Beretta 92x and made the comments I made, I was tired and worn out from the day before. Throw in a little bit of reflection, and my comment about the controls sucking was a little uncalled for. So, as a follow-up here’s my non-tired thoughts on this gun.
For those that don’t know, the Beretta 92x was designed for competition use. It has beefy controls, a stainless slide, a steel (not stainless) frame, and extended controls out the wazoo. The frame is actually a Vertec frame which should make some of you happy. It also comes from the factory with a superb trigger job on it.
