This may be beating a dead horse but.. It's a serious question.

 

Are we going to see a single stack g42 sized 9mm glock this year?

 

If you are really interested in one , I would just go ahead and buy the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield 9mm ... I did, and couldn't be happier....

 

And I am a big Glock fan, would own a Glock if I could only one one gun or if I was in a Walking Dead type situation etc.  Glock all the way.  But at this point, you have to sort of look at it like, how long do you wait, for a company to PERHAPS , One Day, give you what you want to spend your money on, and what a large segment of people have been basically begging for - for years now.  Forget it.  I needed a dedicated every-day-carry gun when I moved down here to FL, and while I planned on carrying my (beloved) Glock 23, I just don't have the body to conceal it consistently and effectively day in and day out, etc.  So I got a Shield... always have been a big Smith and Wesson fan, have products, my Dad carried Smith and Wesson revolvers on the job before Glock came to America in the 80s, and they made basically the exact thing everyone wanted in a Glock , perhaps better actually.  I am not 100% sure a Glock single-stack 9mm would be even equal to a Shield, if not behind the 8-ball for being superior.

 

Would I be excited if it was announced today or tomorrow, probably.  But would I actually sell my Shield and buy one?  I really doubt it.

 

 

Plus, you can get them for like $350.  How can you beat that with a stick?

Pump action pistol? I'd treat that more like a novelty than anything else.

 

The new Surefire pistol light is really nice and compact, and it only takes 1 AAA battery which I love. I know that weaponlights/flashlights nowadays are so powerful they need the CR123A batteries, but it would be nice if more of them took regular batteries like AA/AAA. I guess we will have to wait for the price on that thing though, and most likely it will be a dent in the wallet.

As good as it gets in NJ, of course PK90 has those NJ legal AR pistols that are semi ;)

Me too. I just hope they release it before 2017 and it costs less than $1 a lumen like most of their stuff. They are going to price themselves right out of the game if they are not careful.

 

Going to? I haven't even look at Surefire as a real option in years. Their pricing is basically offensive.

I just find it funny. A couple years ago there was 100 threads on Arfcom about how to keep the brass deflector from getting brass marks/chips on it, how to install the bolt catch roll pin with scratching the lower, and asking if the coating on a certain lower would match the color on any given upper. It didn't matter how a rifle shot or functioned as long as the "fit and finish" (god I hate that fucking term) was acceptable.

 

Now scratches and dings are all the rage.

 

Want a distressed rifle? Tie it to your bumper and drag it down a gravel driveway for 100 yards or so. That ought to do it :p

i tried both of those and still messed it up.  i finally do it but instead of tape i just use a piece of cardboard.  when i get less lazy i think ill mold a piece of kydex that covers the whole side so i don't have to tape.  i actually find it easier to go in from the buffer tube side now

    • They Went Out Looking For Joe Biden Supporters. What They Found Is… It is really hard to find anyone who is a HUGE Joe Biden fan which is strange considering that he won the election with 81 million votes.   So strange, right? At any rate, we all know that it was stolen and that there is no way that blubbering Biden won over Donald Trump. However, we just keep hearing from the left that we are the wrong ones and that there are a plethora of Biden supporters in the wild.   So, one reporter decided to go out and find these Biden supporters, in the liberal city of New Orleans. One would think that if you are looking for Biden supporters that would be the place to be, but that was not the case at all.   Independent journalist and podcaster Fleccas tried to find somebody who actually likes Joe Biden… Easier said than done.   Read more here: https://dailyheadlines.com/they-went-out-looking-for-joe-biden-supporters-what-they-found-is/?utm_source=Mailer DH.COM&utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:96908153&utm_campaign=DH.com 5-18 7p
    • Hookers and Blow! Buy in is high and there's no redeeming value, when finished.
    • What Bill Gates Just Said About Boostering Senior Citizens Is Absolutely Criminal… Why is Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates giving medical advice on national television? The self-proclaimed pandemic expert who has zero medical qualifications wants older adults to get boosted over and over again.   Gates’ appearance on Anderson Cooper’s show, during which he was treated as a medical expert, has left many sane people scratching their heads. Gates is a software developer, not a medical professional. And as a software developer, he was unable to save Windows from viruses. Why is he being treated as a medical expert and allowed to dictate public health policy?   https://dailyheadlines.com/what-bill-gates-just-said-about-boostering-senior-citizens-is-absolutely-criminal/?utm_source=Mailer DH.COM&utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:96908153&utm_campaign=DH.com 5-18 7p   Line up, you old people!
    • If you like the stock and believe in it's growth potential and it's fundamentals then buy it.  It's definetly WAY down from a month ago.  Could it go further down?  Yep.  IMHO stocks still have a way to go down.  How much more?  Who knows!  But I don't see a lot of "good news" out there right now. Stock splits don't effect the value. Just the number of shares you hold. Let's say one share of AMZN is worth $2,000 (which is amost where it is at right now).  You buy one share and it's worth $2k.   If the price doesn't move at all between now until after the split occurs then after the split you'll have 20 shares worth $2k or $100 a share. The idea behind stock splits is generally to broaden the buyer pool and to create more liquidity (more buyers and sellers participating).  People may not want to buy one share at $2k but 20 shares at $2k is a much better deal!!  The value of the company does not increase.  Just the number of shares outstanding.  It's mostly a psychological thing.
