Big Sis Warned you About Me by SudsySutherland Big Sis Warned you About Me by SudsySutherland
Just a crazy picture to further make light of the past couple years under the Obama Administration in which folks like myself have been made out to be terrorists...

XD But it's not just the Obama administration! In fact, his admin's LESS for restricting constitutional freedoms than many conservatives. I can't help but remember Michelle O'Donnel's First Amendment slip up - that was downright scary! You have to watch out for all politicians, not just the ones in power or the ones on the left.

Oh I certainly agree. After all, look who brought us both DHS and the TSA...

Kimber? Condition one - good! And no hand gun should really go w/o a good bright white light! ;)
O'Bumma said he resents those of AMERICAN's who "cling to our guns and our Bibles"... why would he hate us for that???
Oh, I see it now - the LIBERTY OR DEATH - DON'T TREAD ON ME patch. That's what he fears.
And the constitution.
And the freedom affirmed therein.

Yup, Kimber!

Its never out of Condition One unless its getting cleaned (or out on the range and being used...).

I read once that the Israeli's preferred method is hammer down, chamber empty so they have to draw and rack the slide before engaging.

I carry my Glocks condition one always, too. Only issue is: with .40 cal or 10mm, when you rack the slide every day on that same round off the top of the magazine, the bullet gets seated a bit further into the case. I haven't miked a cartridge for length on this - didn't need to as the shortened cartridge is visibly shorter due the deep seated bullet.
(I clear the chamber when it goes in the Gun Vault or safe - I don't like tension on a spring in storage)
When I can see the bullet is getting rammed into the case, I discard the round. A deep seated bullet could cause highly excessive pressures in a 10mm or .40 cal.!!!
Makes me wonder if that's where some of those mythical Glock "Ka-booms" came from - deep seated bullets. I've never experienced a failure with the six or more that I've owned.

I'll keep that in mind. Someday, I'll get a Glock 21SF... My hands are just too small for a regular 21. That, and maybe a 4th Gen Glock 17 even though I hate 9mm (but hey, the magazine capacity makes up for it, and the ammo is fairly inexpensive... and its NATO spec...).

What also wouldn't surprise me about the few KABOOM's that are somewhat mythological about Glocks is idiots who not only seat a 10mm too deep, but reload it hot at the same time with a hot powder that doesn't fill the volume of the case allowing it to get deeper. That and you never know if they were even dumber and put in a magnum primer...

Ah - reloading will rid us of a few inept souls.
I always stick to the book on reloads but I got out of reloading for my Glocks due the partially unsupported chamber (feed ramp) for the .40 and 10mm.
Both have high pressure loads (40,000 cp?) and are subject to "case bulge" at the base of the case once fired in a stock (and best) barrel.
Although I could use an aftermarket barrel ($200 +) for reloads - the fully supported chamber causes feed ramp problems and therefore reliability problems!

So - I put my reload budget into buying factory ammo. I don't shoot as much as I used to anyway. Too much time spent cleaning when I could be drawing or doing something else... :D

Hey - how much time did you spend cleaning an M4? Marine Corp says one pass for every round fired, right? After dumping a vest full of 30 rnd mags, I'll be at the bench for hours!

Not as much as Marines... But then, I don't care about shooting too dirty a weapon... I do a max of about 10 passes when I go for squeeky clean!

You and me both, hell I don't even own a gun and I'm still labeled as a "threat".

Loving the Kimber, looks well used. Must mean you don't treat it like a safe queen and run it hard. Thank God!

I can't afford to own 'safe queens' for guns! My only 'safe queen' is just one that got a little too well used recently and has some broken parts; then there's the one project gun, but since its not fully assembled it doesn't count!

Yeah, I love my gun porn to be natural guns without any overblown aftermarket plastic surgery. They are real, and typically have the holster marks, nicks from the range and cleaning, and brass. Can't say I don't dress them up pretty though, that M3 is a nice accessory!
