    This.

    Glock ain't got a hair on their fourth point of contact if they don't do that. With the 22 already a .40, there are some good "Who's on first?" routines that happen in gun stores every day.

    No, I wasn't being sarcastic at all. I've never used one, and I'm wondering what kind of work-arounds folks have done, what with necessity being a mother, and all.

    The next county north of here is Boone Co.

    From all I've seen, I pity the fool that wants to get cross-threaded with the BCSD. They're pretty big on training. ;)

    I volunteered my carbine as a guinea pig for a new Duracote spray setup at the joint where I used to work. As it turned out, there were some initial problems, one of which was that the work area was...

    That's one of those things that doesn't necessarily show up when just borrowing a friend's gun at the range, though.

    And yet nobody would bat an eye if the police department of an 800 acre town with a population of 40,000 had a SWAT team, which is kinda weird when you think about it.

    Yup. He comes well recommended by Mas Ayoob, too. I believe you'd have to talk to him about who he uses for refinishing.

    The only bad things in IL are the carry laws (which are being rectified slowly) and the ridiculous requirement to have a "FOID" to even think about guns. Oh, and no NFA.

    Disagree. Even if it was designed for duck hunting, having to perform the firing sequence in order to clean it, on the supposition that the gun is "unloaded", is bad design.
