Today’s snapshots

Not quite as cold out today, so CZ527 came out to play. With iron sights, it’s a fast and handy brush carbine. With an optic, it’s set trigger allows considerable precision.

Not warm enough to stay out long though…

…so back to Neverland with locked and loaded Peter Pan. Sig M1911 Scorpion with X5L.

    Thought of all your wonderful “old gun” photos, and your ladies, when I read this:

    William J. Vizzard, professor of criminal justice at California State University in Sacramento, who has long studied the firearms industry, commented that the gun market has not only expanded dramatically over the past 50 years, its very nature has drastically changed.

    I guess calling it a “toy” is a good phrase to use if you want to deny the existence of the second amendment. Especially if you completely omit any reference of the second amendment reasons for owning firearms either before or after 1980.
    As for “no market for semi-auto weapons”, obviously the guy is utterly ignorant, given that almost every handgun is semi auto. Never mind the fact that there are plenty of semi auto long guns aimed at the civilian market, dating to long before 1980.
