Concealed Permit Holder Stops Attempted Mass Shooting in Chicago

“On Friday, an Uber driver with a concealed carry permit thwarted an attempted mass shooting by pulling his own weapon and shooting a gunman who had opened fire in Chicago’s Logan Square.”

This also didn’t happen one month ago:

On March 22 a man who opened fire on children and adults in a Philadelphia barbershop was shot and killed by a citizen with a concealed carry permit.

Here’s a nice list of a lot of other times a mass shooting was stopped by an armed citizen.

It’s almost like they have a real problem with telling the truth.

Why I won’t be getting a Glock 43

The long awaited and begged for single stack 9mm Glock has finally arrived. I expect it to be an excellent performer in all categories, but I have no intention of buying one. At least not yet.

The main reason is one of economy. A while back I was in need of a single stack 9mm and of course the Glock 43 was not on the radar yet. So instead I picked up a Kahr CM9 and all the necessary supporting gear and it was performed with boring reliability (just like I suspect the Glock will). So how do the 2 guns stack up? The following table will show you.

GLOCK 43 Kahr CM9
Caliber 9mm 9mm
Capacity 6 6
Overall Length 6.26” 5.42″
Overall Width 1.02” .90″
Overall Height 4.25” 4.0″
Barrel Length 3.39” 3.0″
Weight (unloaded) 16.19 oz. 15.9 oz.

As you can see the Kahr is slightly smaller, lighter, yet offers the same capacity as the Glock. I have yet to shoot a Glock 43 so I don’t know how this relates to in terms of performance, but I do know that the Kahr CM9 shoots just as well as my Glock 19. It just needs to be reloaded more often.

Next is the cost of switching platforms. First is the cost of spare magazines (rough guess is that they will run about $35 each). Then there is the cost of a holster at around $150 and a Laser Sight at $240. As you can see the cost of supporting a new platform is more than double the estimated retail cost of the G43.

So there you have it. It’s a question  of cost that leads to my choice. I may eventually switch to a Glock 43 but I don’t have any compelling reason to do so right now.

To some all civil rights are not equal

David Codrea on the new law in Indiana.

I also find it curious that many of those upset about the new law in Indiana under the guise that it violates civil rights, are also those who express an interest in denying individuals their civil right to self-defense.

Explain to me again why registering guns is “no big deal”

FBI Admits All Registered Motorcycle Owners Are On Classified Gang List.

After a few moments of introduction, Lancaster bluntly asked the following question,” Mr. Cornia, if I were to make the statement, all registered motorcycle owners are currently showing on a classified FBI gang list, would the statement be true or false?

Cornia responded by saying, “That would be a true statement, the FBI has been collecting and compiling Department of Motor Vehicles and Drivers License Division records for the purpose of adding those that own motorcycles to a classified gang list since 1994.

 

Why do anti-rights activists lie?

Yeah I know a redundant question. It’s just fun to watch them paint themselves into a corner they can’t get out of.

This is why I don’t like crowds

Bad things can happen if bad people are nearby.
