    Exclamation British Army switches to the Glock 17


    Interestingly, the british news source The Mirror calls the Glock 17 the "powerful new pistol". I guess those are relative terms but I'll buy it....oh wait I already have.

    It's too bad the British subjects are not allowed to own these guns.....they are allowed to purchase ugly bright orange blank firing G17 for 99, (≈$190.00) and from what I've read, they are quite loud.

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
    --Cesare Beccaria, 1738-1794
