Happy Valentine’s Day 1911 Pistol – Patented February 14th, 1911

| General 2-Cents | February 14, 2012

On a day that has come to mean LOVE, it is only fitting that the most loved pistol would celebrate it’s anniversary on Valentine’s Day.  On February 14th, 1911 John Moses Browning was granted US Patent 984519 for the 1911 Pistol.  Colt was the first company to produce the Model 1911, or M1911.  Since then countless companies have produced the 1911 Pistol, ranging from Singer Sewing Machine Company to Kimber America.

The Magpul FMG9 / FPG Folding Gun aka Box Gun

| General 2-Cents | November 19, 2011

Currently the Magpul FMG9 is a prototype, but the possibilities are amazing. It is built around the use of either a Glock 17 Semi Auto or a Glock 18 Auto, both are 9mm.  I suspect they could include the Glock 22 in 40 or Glock 31 in .357 to the list since they follow the same dimensions as the 9mm versions.

Using the semi auto options they could market this to civilian sales on the Class 3 market. They could potentially make adjustments where the folding action does not expose a stock, but just the grip. Doing that would allow them to mass market the design as a concealed carry option. Magpul could make a pocket pistol that would have no imprint using something like a Ruger LCP or even one of the 9mm pocket pistols on the market.

Based on what Magpul is saying on their website, a folding concealed carry pistol without a stock may be an option: “Magpul FMG9 (Prototype) featured on Discovery Channel’s Ultimate Weapons. Production version is called FPG (Folding Pocket Gun)

Draco MINI AK Pistol, The Most Potent Production Pistol?

| General 2-Cents | October 24, 2011

Draco-MINI-AK-Pistol-2

A few months ago I was trying to think of a more potent production pistol than the Draco Mini AK Pistol.  Considering I am still drawing a blank I suppose I will crown the Draco MINI AK Pistol the most devastating and awe inspiring pistol currently in production.

I prefer not to say, “most powerful”, because you could easily argue the .454 Casull or .500 S&W to be a more powerful round.  However, I have yet to see the 30 round or 75 round magazine for either of those rounds.

I approached quite a few people about this, and continually received a blank gaze as they unsuccessfully tried to come up with something that could rival the MINI AK.  So I ask, is there anything in the ballpark of a Draco MINI AK Pistol?

Things to consider:

Reliability, Accuracy (at 0-100 yards), Power, Recoil, Cost, Capacity, Durability, Simplicity, and Availability (firearm and replacement parts/pieces)

Draco Mini AK Pistol Creating Pressure Wave & Flame

| General 2-Cents | October 3, 2011

The Draco AK Pistols, both Standard and Mini, are an absolute blast to shoot. There is no mistaking why these things are some of the hottest firearms out there right now. While taking a few shots we caught these images. The second shot is where you can see the pressure wave creating a pocket in the water.

I would like to say it was rain, but unfortunately I hadn’t realized I was downwind of the pond I was shooting into. Oh, and there was a hurricane passing the East Coast of Florida that day so the wind was strong. Not one of my proudest moments. Don’t piss into the wind, don’t piss on a flat rock, and don’t shoot an AK Pistol into a pond during a hurricane.

England Home Defense Weapon – The Broom

| General 2-Cents | August 10, 2011

broom

We just saw something on the news about residents of England defending their homes and neighborhoods with brooms….  REALLY, A BROOM?

Can you imagine only having a broom at your disposal to defend yourself, your property, family, friends, and neighbors?  I find that a shotgun, pistol or rifle works much better.  A criminal wants to meet as little resistance as possible.  A broom is like using a garden hose to put out a house fire.  I want a fire engine, not a garden hose.  The police are expected to defend the citizens, but what happens when that police force is stretched too thin?  You are $&!# out of luck!

Rapid fire of Chrome AK47

| General 2-Cents | July 29, 2011

Chrome AK47 Rapid Fire Frame by Frame 1

I may prefer the full Gold plated AK-47 rifles over the Chrome ones, but who can afford one of those? Chrome is a great alternative to the budget minded gun owner.

In terms of the Chrome options I have been really impressed with the hard chrome ones that Classic Arms was selling for awhile.

This particular one, and every other AK47 I have ever used, has a great cycling rate and never jams or fails regardless of the ammunition quality. If you ever have a feeding issue with your AK it’s most likely an issue with the magazine and not the rifle. It is not uncommon for you to get new mags that do not feed smoothly.

If your mags do not feed well you might want to cook them clean.
