proud U.S. Military icons, and perhaps more germane to the

issue of our need to specifically protect our handgun rights...

Sure it's a well known moniker, the National Rifle Association.

But I, for one, am tired of being treated like a pariah because I

believe in the right and necessity to CCW. And our reluctance to

stand up for ourselves and our true firearm usage opens the front

door for the gun-grabbers to waltz in and walk all over us.
None taken!

Its a valid point and I think the actions of an orginization say a lot more than the flag. It was just an idea to float.

If your going to use a handgun however, I demand it be a 1911!

Is a Glock ok?

lol, no body jump on me for that. Their all good guns. Personally, I perfer a 1911, but wouldn't hesitate to own a Glock. I'd really like a G31 in .357 sig, but they are way out of my budget right now.

Those are even farther out of my budget.

I've never really understood why people hate Glock. They may not be pretty, but the go bang everytime you pull the trigger (at least if you take care of it), and they have decent accuracy.

I think we should have American made products. And it's the Glock revolution where every one and their mother had to have one and any other pistol was crap that started the hatred. Personally I don't like them because I tend to push them down for some reason they just don't work for me.

Yeah, Glock is no where near the best gun being made, but they are still good guns. Unless something major happens when I shoot one, I'll continue to like them.
