Gun safety


Handgun Selection


(I’d recommend ignoring the Sig P250 because it is now out of production.)

Keep in mind when selecting a handgun that widespread military and law enforcement usage is a good thing. Not only does it mean wide availability of parts, it means that thousands of other people have already done testing of the gun for you. Don’t be a beta tester on a mechanical device that could save your life.

Don’t sperg too much on “wat gun iz best” or “wat bullit iz best”.

    While this runs forty four and a half minutes, it is an excellent overview of five hundred years of pistol development. The part that I found very interesting is at about 15:47 where he attempts to shoot from a galloping horse. R. Lee Ermey is a pretty good shot and he can be counted on to hit something a stone’s throw away with both feet on terra firma. He can’t hit a five gallon jug from a galloping horse a doze feet away. His solution was to replace the horse with a motorcycle, something that could not be done int the nineteenth century. He left it there. I think that training could overcome deficiencies in deflection shooting.

    In response to the first video, I remember reading a book from the seventies written by the team leader who went after Black September. He went into how the Mossad trains. They are trained to cycle the weapon, a Beretta .22 firing shorts, when drawing. Normally, the weapon will have an empty chamber.

    Safety has been a problem for a long time. This man is reputed to have found the source to the Nile in the nineteenth century. That was on a par with going to the moon in the twentieth. He died while climbing over a fence with a loaded shotgun.

      A lesson you can learn a thousand times in a lifetime: the difference between an expert and an amateur is fundamentals.

        I think it raises the point that none of us are immune to accidents. John Glenn slipped and fell in a bathtub after his famous flight.
