A new Mousetrap…but not neccesarily “Better”

Paging Rube Goldberg…

The front cover of Guns & Ammo this month has a weird-looking contraption from Sig called the “ACP” or Adaptive Carbine Platform.  There’s a video to watch at the link.

It seems to be a big aluminum housing that you attach your handgun to, making it into a PDW.  It is covered with Picatinny rails that you can attach scopes, lights, lasers to.  It has an attachment for an elastic sling on the back, and an operating handle to work the slide (which can be mounted on either side of the ACP).

There is a law-enforcement version with a wire shoulder stock on the back that would need to be registered as a short-barreled rifle if you want to own it.

President Jackhole Launches a Stealth Attack on 2A

WARNING!

Do you remember 0bama’s May 2011 pledge to pursue gun control “under the radar.” ?  Check this out:

Obama Expands ATF’s Right to Seize Guns Without Due Process

“Obama has expanded civil-forfeiture rules making it permissible for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize weapons from citizens without the hassle of due process.”

Anyone want to guess how long it will be before ATF agents insert themselves into cases where they have little or no jurisdiction in order to facilitate confiscations?

UPDATE:

Now I find this article:

Obama, Axelrod, and Gun Control in a Second Term?

Apparently, 0bama’s designated spokes-tool and gaffe-suppressor has a history of clamoring for gun control since 1974.

 

 

First Impressions: Charter Arms Pitbull .40S&W (Updated, AGAIN!)

No rims? No problem!

(Scroll down for updates)  I have been looking at bigger-bore revolvers for a while now.  Wheelgun reliability + bigger bullets sounded like a winner to me.

The lack of .44SPL ammo availability (and the anemia of the ammo I have seen tested) pushed me away from a Bulldog and towards the Pitbull.  5-shots, stainless steel frame, DA with exposed hammer.  And since it’s a revolver, the chamber is “fully supported”.  LOL.

I saw one in the case at the newest gun store in the area, Woodbridge Firearms, and I pulled the trigger so to speak.  A more complete review will be forthcoming, but here are my initial impressions after a box and a half of ammo:

Life In Gun-Control Paradise

Deterrence Fail

If you want to know what life would be like in a country with strict gun control, here is the most recent example from the country where Great Britain used to be:

Farm tenant arrested after burglars shot was ‘plagued by break-ins’

The article is quite revealing, but more for the recounting of similar events than this specific incident.  Also important: the description of general lawlessness that comes when criminals have no fear of the citizenry or the law.
