Re: Corona Virus

Gee once upon a time we quarantined people coming from areas with contagious diseases. Now we scan them with a temp gun. And they are amazed that diseases go global so rapidly.

What’s really funny is WHO says it isn’t a global threat. This thing is in the wild already.

Re: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery .....

My two Glocks are protest guns. The 30 was bought in a neighboring city when L A banned small revolvers for sale to citizens. I went three blocks away and bought a small, black, plastic, high capacity semi auto.

The 42 was bought because the state told me I couldn’t have it.

So what's with the trigger guard or aborted attempt at same?

Honestly one can manipulate a revolver trigger fast enough that you could fire two rounds from a regular revolver fast enough. I doubt you'd see any additional damage doing it two at once and you'd reduce your available shots if needed.
