    Sometimes UPS does “legitimately” lose stuff. There’s a place called NPS near my old workplace that sold, among other things, pallets of stuff that UPS lost, and settled with the owners.

    Rings are a serious hazard for anyone working with their hands on just about anything- including many of the sorts of things we do as shooters. I have seen what a ring can do to a finger when caught...

    New RMR’s (last 10 months or so) have a decidedly silver cast to the lasered markings, versus a white tone of previous runs. The real telltale would be the condition of the plastic packaged screw...

    Looks exactly like Howies hockey tape, which has a self-sticking adhesive and a high thread count cotton base, and sells for three bucks. Nothing new here, we played with stuff like this in the...

    Yes, thank you for the clarification. I was responding to a post above mine and should have been more clear.

    Certainly this looks like a nice field-expedient tool.

    (My long-ago AP Physics classes do make me cringe a bit at their ad copy line… “uses kinetic energy instead of an awkward hammer and punch”)

    I’ve just acquired a few Mec-Gar 7-round nickel plated magazines for my Colt CCO 1911, and their followers are completely flat. No embossment or other feature on the surface. They run perfectly.

    Only if my zipper is open.

    It does meet rule two of a gunfight, though. (Rule one being, don’t attend)

    I didn’t see anyone answer your question- Yes, the safeties on both my 226 and 229 SAO’s are similar in feel as a custom 1911- however they accomplish this with an omega-shaped spring and cam rather...

    Well, I have to hand it to Buck, a good message.

    I should mention, I wear an airbag vest under the suit- the pistol was over the airbag and under the leathers. Pretty amazing, no discomfort even in a full racing tuck.

    If by “interesting” you mean “improperly and ineffectively”, I would agree. “Lock-rip-rack” isn’t difficult, but it does require training. Of course the officer may well have had that training,...

    Just as a possibly salient point, I always test every button cell before putting it into service, with a digital battery tester. Some surprises have been avoided that way.
