I recently read your article about hair triggers, and how the Glock 34 and 35 are 4.5 lb and are competition guns. I have the Glock 41 and it also has the 4.5 lb. I could have a gunsmith put a 5.5 lb trigger in to match the duty guns, but am wondering if this trigger issue is one for carry guns only or for home defense guns? I had been primarily using it for home defense, now thinking otherwise. Thanks for your time, I know you are a busy guy, and I am enjoying your latest book!
I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. I used to be a State's Attorney in Miami, and you and I had dinner together at a Thai Restaurant in Miami in around 1997-1999. I think you were down there testifying as an expert in a trial or something, and a friend of mine named Ed introduced us and a group of us had dinner at Thai House II on Biscayne Blvd in North Miami. Anyway, just wanted to say hi.
When you were reviewing the G41, did you happen to check and see if it would fit in the IDPA Box? I would have posted the question in the forums, but I didn't know which ones you normally look at. Thanks in advance.
Mr. Ayoob, I recently read on another forum about a traffic stop where the officer asked the driver if there were any firearms in the car. The driver responded, yes, two in my gun bag and one on my right hip. The officer then asked the driver to hand him/her the gun on his hip which happened to be a cocked and locked 1911. The poster thought it quit funny that the officer didn't know how to unload the gun and handed it back to him, and asked him to remove the round from the chamber. The officer didn't know you can't rack the slide with the safety on. This was handled wrong on so many levels in my mind. Both used poor judgement and it was done in an unsafe manner for both. The LEO asking him to hand the loaded gun ot the window to him/her was dangerous. Trying to unload it without being familiar with it was dangerous. Handing it back loaded was wrong. In my opinion this should have been handled very differently on both sides. You're thoughts.
Hi Mas, Hope all's well in your world. I just saw a post in G.A.T.E. where you said you usually use CLP type product (which I use too), but wondered if you have tried "Slide Glide", by Brian Enos? I have switched to using CLP for part of the cleaning process, but using Slide glide for lube; only takes a very small amount and unlike grease and oil stays on the moving parts and protects from grit. Here's a link in case you want to read about it. http://www.brianenos.com/ Best wishes, David
