Today we went to the Wake County Firearms Education and Training center to do a pocket 9mm shootout using a S&W Shield 9mm, XDs 9mm, and a Walther PPS 9mm. The folks at LuckyGunner.com were nice enough to send us a bunch of ammo to test out, and Linoge from Wallsofthecity.com let us borrow his Walther PPS for the test. Sean from NCGunBlog.com handled the ammo stuff, and I brought my Shield and XDs 9mms. We chose these pistols because they are relatively the same size, and they all have triggers that are very similar to a standard service pistol, which is very popular these days.
- Federal Hi-Shok 9mm JHP 150rds
- Remington Golden Sabre 75rds
- PMC Bronze 115gr FMJ 150rds
- Federal Champion 115gr FMJ 100rds
Huge ‘Thank You’ to the folks at LuckyGunner.com for sending us the ammo for this test!
Bottom line: XDs was the winner, and I think the PPS and Shield tied for second place.
Wilmington, NC man pretends to be drunk when he finds intruders in his home. They apparently don’t pay him any attention and he’s able to get his gun safe open and then get the intruders out of his house using the gun. How do you pull this off? I don’t know, but it’s awesome.
Grand Jury won’t indict man who shot a police officer during a no knock warrant. Police didn’t knock, and the homeowner says that he thought he was being burglarized and opened fire.
“This was a terrible tragedy that a deputy sheriff was killed, but Hank Magee believed that he and his pregnant girlfriend were being robbed,” DeGuerin (The mans attorney) said in an interview Thursday.
Rand Paul has been pushing for some reform regarding guns in post offices. Currently we can’t carry on post office grounds, or in the buildings, and he’s trying to change that. Unfortunately it looks like his amendment got shot down, and the Senate is going with another bill that will at least allow for guns in the parking lot. I wonder if this is in response to a court ruling on guns in post office parking lots.
Tip of the Week:
We told Sean that if he wanted to come on the podcast again that he had to come up with the tip segment. Sean’s tip was to never shoot up all of your ammo at the range, and he tells a great story about what happened to his father in Los Angeles in 1965.
