Do you Know your Gun Type?

There are so many TYPES of handguns out there aren’t there?

If you are new to shooting or only have handled one or two; you may not be aware of all the different types of handguns that are available!

It can be kind of confusing with all the levers and switches and although they all have barrels and triggers some function very differently than the others!

Today, I’m going to break the most popular types of handguns that are used across the country for competition, concealed carry/home defense, law enforcement and the military or just for recreation.

Handgun Types – Most Popular

  • Derringers
  • Hammerless or Snubnose Double Action Revolvers
  • Double Action / Single Action Revolvers
  • •Single Action Only Semi Automatics
  • •Double Action/Single Action Semi Automatics
  • •Striker Fired Semi Automatics

Understand that this video is not an exhaustive review; there are other reputable Gun manufacturers and models out there.

This is just my take on the most popular and most used and abused and have stayed in the fight long enough.

Conversely, due to my experience on the ranges I’ve seen some doozies of some models that just don’t run or don’t run well. I’d recommend sticking with the top 10 gun manufacturers (in my opinion):

Manufacturers

Glock – Striker

Sig Sauer – DA/SA DAO/ SAO & Striker

Hk – DA/SA DAO and Striker

Smith & Wesson – Revolvers & Striker •Springfield Armory – Striker

CZ – striker Fired Most Popular

FNH – DA & Striker

Colt – 1911’s & Revolvers

Kimber -1911’s

Ruger -Revolvers

Choose wisely my friends! Go to a range; ask your friends and family, get some training and test drive some until you find the one that is right for you!

McCuomo “Takes a bite out of our rights”

Published

on

Like the old dog McGruff you can’t teach an old dog democrat new tricks. For as long as they have been around democrats like to chip away at the rights of citizens.  Governor Andy of New York is still hung over from the power conovirus gave him has announced a state of emergency from gun violence. Power the founders and voters never intended for him to wield. He will use this addition power to reward his cohorts with a brand new state agency, a jobs program, and fight out of state straw purchases, to combat systematic injustices (??). Andy also promised to allow people to sue gun manufactures if one of the criminals he lets out of jail or without bail uses a gun to rob or kill you. This will only cost the law abiding citizens of formally broke New York State $140 million.

Democrats have always been supporters of disarming those that threaten their power. When the 13th amendment was passed they responded with the “Black Codes” that prohibited blacks from owning firearms. When the gangs of New York that supported Tammany Hall complained about the dangers from armed citizens, the Sullivan laws were passed. 1934 saw the banning of fully automatic weapons, by 1938 a federal license was required to sell firearms and records of gun ownership was instituted.  1986 saw mandatory prison for using a gun in commission of a crime. 1990 saw the ban of fictitious assault weapons, the 90’s saw many liberal democrats trying to sue gun manufactures for criminals using their guns. And last but not least Cuomo’s “Safe for Criminals act”.

When one see’s the amount of gun restrictions in the name of safety one has to wonder about the democrat game plan. From selling untraceable guns to Mexican cartels during Fast and Furious to defunding the police what is their goal. When was the last time you saw a straw purchaser receive a high profile prison sentence? Why are they releasing criminals from prisons, inviting the worst of the worst from every third world country? Removing bail so criminals are on the street before police have a chance to finish their report. How many BLM, Antifa rioters have been prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law?

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: A Declaration of War, Long in the Making

The answer might be connected with George Soro’s push to fund district attorneys races thru out the country. By doing so he has control over what crimes are punished and which ones slide. Notice attorney Mark McClosekey prosecuted for defending his home against rioters threatening to burn down his home. Not one rioter was even charged with trespass. Notice how many mass shooters were known to FBI and local law enforcement but they never stepped in to stop or even flagged them on the national back ground check.

Step one in the plan to disarm Americans might be to turn the country into a lawless society where honest citizens will risk the wrath of the law to defend themselves. Step two will be to get the media to always blame the guns and not the criminals or politicians that enabled such activity. Step three will have paid operatives start calling for more control of guns and the useful idiots and Hollywood celebrities will join the chorus. Step four try to codify all gun laws as federal laws. Step five ban guns. (Ask Sarah Johnson how banning guns in England is working out)

The biggest impediment to their step five is that pesky Constitution. You know the one written by dead white men, that should be a living, changing with the times document. It unequivocally states our rights come from God and not governor Cuomo, George Soros or the federal government. Until they can get the masses to accept them as smarter and more woke than the founding fathers they must work around this road block. They do this by trying to make guns and ammunition more expensive. They try to demonize gun owners as some sort of crazy. They try to pervert the meaning of “Shall not infringe” to only mean hunting. (IE: why would you need more than 10 rounds to hunt?) They will make gun ownership a hassle thru excessive fees and draconian regulations. Try to drive manufacturers out of business thru lawsuits. Make so many regulations and laws that even the most careful citizen will be a law breaker.

So be warned when the democrats talk about safety it is their safety they are referring to. If they would push us so far as to curtail our free speech, force business to close, and make everyone comply with their mandates no matter the logic or science. Imagine how far they would go if we could not fight back. Never forget the founding fathers put the second amendment near the top because they knew the nature of man and what he would do for power. Ben Franklin once described the way to destroy a nation is like eating a large cake, you start by nibbling away at the edges.

DO YOU KNOW THE BASICS?

Evaluate Your Skills

Well, if so, this video is for you!

Today, I’m showing you the basics of loading,  reloading and unloading a modern semi-auto handgun. I’m demo’ing with my Glock 19 Generation 5.  The only accessories or mods I have with it are Trijicon Night Sights and a Surefire x300 Ultra weapon light.

Here are some Key phrases that can help you with loading these handy little tools:

LOADING

Safety First –
• Finger Discipline & Muzzle Management
• Gun in GUN HAND; Ammo in the other
• Grab Magazine Finger tip to Bullet Tip
• Ensure Mag is seated w a Tap
• Grab top of Slide with Gross Motor Skills aka “Big Dumb Movement”, palm behind ejection port. Thumb facing you.
• USE Push (with gun hand) & Pull (with the other) RIP the slide to the rear maximizing full guide rod spring compression and RELEASE it. This will load a round in chamber.
• Conduct a Press Check- once again pull with support hand and pull back on slide to inspect chamber for round.
• Release Slide and tap on back of slide to ensure slide is “in battery” meaning fully forward and engaged.

UNLOADING

• Safety First: Finger Discipline & Muzzle Management
• Drop the Magazine with Mag Release
“An Empty Mag is a Dead Mag” let it drop
• Rip the Slide- as you did in loading 3x to extract the round from chamber (if slide is forward).
• Using Slide Catch push up and lock slide open as you are pulling slide to rear.

RELOADING

• Drop Empty Mag
• Retrieve Loaded Mag
• Repeat Loading Procedures

Teaching in Context

There are several ways to explain these steps. I have found my methods and phrases used to be most beneficial for hundreds of thousands of students over the years and have passed this down to several of my instructors to implement as well.

I trust you can glean some value from this video and instruction and pass on the skills to those around you to keep them safe and successful!
