If You're Going To Pull A Gun, Make Sure It Works

Imagine if you had to pull your weapon in self-defense and this happened?

I'm not condoning what the man attempted to do, nor am I condemning it. Rather this is to show you why you should always be familiar with your weapon and ensure that it functions properly before trusting your life to it.

If this man (the failed assassin) was legitimately trying to defend himself against a group of thugs when his weapon failed to fire, he wouldn't have gotten off so easily.

Go here for the full story.

  1. When we deployed for Operation Desert Shield/Storm some guys bought Glocks to take with them. We were only given two days notice so they neither checked them nor practiced with them. We got a chance to go out in the desert prior to hostilities and get in a little practice. They found out that their Glocks were failing to function. Likewise, one gent got home only to find that his issue .38 revolver was not functional. It pays to know your weapon. I took an old, slow, trusty hunting companion (Colt SAA) and counted myself lucky.
