So the 1911 out shot the Glock, even underwater.

I like that the glock was 86% reliable on dry land.


1911 100%


A reliability track record was established with each pistol for 1000 rounds on dry land before the water testing was attempted. Both Glocks were factory stock pistols. The Glock .45 demonstrated a 86% reliability rating (14 malfunctions per 100 rounds) during the 1000 round dry land test. The Glock .40 cal demonstrated a 92% reliability rating

And we wonder why this country is going to hell in a handbasket. I'll bet this "citizen" has added a bunch of little rugrats we should all support as well...

Cane, is that Carson?...I read about him in history class. Wow, it is a wonder that she could dial the phone properly. I am beginning to think that that this country is in serious trouble. ohh wait it has been for a while. I really feel sorry for these people, that they are so clueless about what this country stands for. They just don't get it, and they voted in a president that really doesn't get it either.

"I'm the only one professional enough to carry this gun".

BOOM!


Overconfidence breeds arrogance and stupidity,which in turn create disaster.

Notice-he was too busy being a pompous loud mouth to check the status of that weapon before releasing the slide catch....all he had to do was look down into the chamber before letting that slide fly,but noooooo-he was too busy being 'Da Man'...and that was what let Mister Murphy do his thing.......

Dont ever fail to respect the ability of Mister Murphy to rear his pointy little head-especially when your lulled into forgetting that Mister Murphy exists because your so damn 'professional' or 'good' or 'well trained' or whatever.......for this poor man,Murphy has ruined his chance to score with that cute little teacher lady after class....and judging by the direction of that negligent discharge,it might have ruined his ability to score with anyone ever again......

Dont be like this man.

THIS is a perfect example of what happens when there are laws that protect STUPID people from themselves, natural selection should have taken this one out a long time ago, preferably before she could breed.
