    A major was bored late at night and had duty in Ops Center in Germany, he was twirling his loaded .45 around and it went off and blew a hole through an expensive STU Secure telephone.

    Was he twirling it by the trigger guard?

    Yes, earlier, but he had to have chambered a round, left the safety off and depressed the grip safety in order for it to fire.

    Exactly - thus Darwinism is allowed to work! I think I'm liking Glocks more now that I've thought of it this way! :guns:

    Once I find a proper 10mm pistol, I'm through with Glocks.

    If memory serves, Glock makes a 10mm....

    I saw a sweet looking S&W revolver in 10mm at the last gunshow I went to.

    That would be the 610, which at this point seems to be reaching cult status. One of S&W finest firearms that for some reason never took off. By any chance do you remember what they wanted for it? I'm curious...

    I'm sorry I don't. But I told my BIL about it, he lives in CA and he told me if I saw another one to buy it and he would pay up to a grand for it.

    I guarantee over a grand, those S&W 610's are outrageous anymore

    I believe NN has a 610. What he means by "pistol" is a bottomfeeder, aka semiautomatic pistol.
    Overkill is underrated.

    In my haid, I'm stuck on 80s/90s S&W prices, I keep thunking a good used S&W shouldn't be over $300-400 tops depending on the model.

    I think in 2003 or so I did pay an outrageous amount for a S&W model 624 LINB with a 4" tube to go with its big brother with a 6 1/2" bbl. I think $400 cash.........................wow

    That's right Monkey Boy, been through the generic use of the word "pistol" and lit a fire under the purists on this forum. mocantina.gif

    Now, when I use the word pistol it means pistol as in not a revolver and when I write clip I mean clip even if it holds 9mm, 10mm, .40, or .45acp ammo.

    Welcome aboard.

    I paid $700 a few years ago, before they came out with that last run of 610s

    I wish you were right, I'd own a lot more than I do. i just paid 700 for a 29-2. the last 29 I saw at an LGS was right at a grand. 989, I think.

    You can't find a decent smith around here for less than 500 and depending on the model a lot more. My local shop has a nice 6 inch model 29 for 875 I think they are a good investment I remember those low prices and we won't see them again with smiths

    3&7/8 barrel would be sweet, but, $1100
    I'll use a 629.

    well, the one I looked at had more of a snubbie type barrel. Plus it had that Dan Wesson type barrel shroud arrangement. with that nut type thing on the muzzle end. So, I'm like you, if I want a snappy handfull, I'll just use my 29

    Well......... I guess the XD's grip safety doesn't help.

    The men were charged in connection with the theft of a Springfield Armory XD 9mm pistol from a man's car early Jan. 30.

    The following day, a woman went to the police station to report that a firearm, which she believed to be stolen, had been fired inside her residence, according to Officer James Miller.

    Miller said the brothers were identified and arrested a short time later, and a woman who was with them at the time told officers that the gun might be in her house, as she had picked them up the morning the gun was stolen.

    Officers went to the woman's residence Saturday morning, where she located the gun, which was unloaded.

    Those who testified at the preliminary hearing included the woman in whose residence the weapon had been fired, the woman in whose home the gun was located, and Miller.

    "Everybody involved said it was an accidental discharge," Miller said. He added that no one was injured.

    PROPHESY: Within 5 years, Glock will introduce a generation 5, 6 or whatever pistol with a frame mounted thumb safety, a grip safety, or a SA/DA mechanism complete with a de-cocker for its partially pre-cocked striker. Or, better yet, a combination of a grip safety and either one of the other two.

    Five years, mark your calendars, you heard it here first.

    Within 5 years "Darwin" will be done working. I hope for the USA :)

    :that:


    You can hang 45 safeties off the top, both sides, on the grip, off the end of the barrel, at the top of the grip on either side and internally on the trigger, the magazine and striker then add a flashing neon sign on the rear sight...and some idiot will still manage to 'accidentally' shoot himself or somebody else with it. Why? Because idiots are truly motivated and extremely dedicated.
