Just watch - now they'll try to close the Church Rummage Sale loophole

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A Tennessee woman shopping at a church rummage sale accidentally bought a loaded Glock 23, believing it was an airsoft gun.

  2. If I bought a Glock it would have to be for the price of an airsoft pistol

    1. No matter how much you dislike them they go bang every time you pull the trigger

    2. That trigger is the reason I won't own a Glock. I don't like DAO triggers on a revolver, I don't like them on an auto.

    3. The trigger on striker fired weapons are not double action, the weapon is cocked when you move the slide back to chamber a round. The action you feel is the movement of the trigger mechanism through the safeties. It is a system that mimics a double action revolver but is totally different. Timney has a new trigger mechanism for competition only that is said to break at about 2 to 2.5 lbs. if you've interest in competition type of shooting.I

    4. I don't want to feel ANYTHING on that trigger except for the break.

    5. That may be and that's fine, you've made your thoughts known on your feelings about Glock handguns many times, your choice. I was correcting your post about Glock triggers and DAO triggers which are not the same. I have never shot a DAO semi auto but I believe that action is why they are not a popular choice in the gun buying market where Glock has been in the top 5 for decades

    6. Sure, we all have different tastes in handguns and there's nothing wrong with that.
      Yu should hear the shit I get when I say I won't buy a Browning Hi Power. Shot one once, couldn't hit shit with it because the grip angle was wrong for me, among other things. But to some, me saying that is pure heresy.
      Hey, if you can shoot something, anything, well then that's the gun for you.

    7. I can imagine. My son has S&W Shield 2.0 I believe, great gun, it works for him but the grip angle throws me off a little bit.
      Carry what works for you and be safe out there

    8. Another thing I don't like about most modern autos is the double stacked magazine. They're just a bit too bulky for my hands but a 1911 is just a little too skinny. My solution is to put Pachmayr Presentation grips (no finger grooves, hate those too) on my 1911s - not to reduce the felt recoil but to fill my hand a little better.
      I know, I'm a picky li'l bitch, huh?

    11. Most striker-fired pistols aren't fully cocked. They're half-cocked (or more) wih the trigger pull bringing it to fully cocked and released. Walther PPQ and PDP pistols are fully-cocked SAO triggers.

    12. Larry I can't speak for every striker fired weapon on the planet because they seem to be the fastest growing market but I can speak about the Glock, this is the original weapon in the discussion. The striker's nose sits on the edge of the shear in a fully reward position, meaning cocked, and is released by the rearward movement of the trigger. No cocking happens with pulling the trigger, the transfer bar moves the plunger safety up allowing the trigger to continue to move rearward until the the nose of the transfer bar in conjunction with the connector allows the striker to be released and move forward firing the gun. The rearward movement of the slide reloads and the sequence is ready to be repeated. Like I said before they are not DAO nor are they SAO they are striker fired, meaning they have no firing pin. The trigger does not cock the gun, the rearward movement of the slide does that. .

    13. Looks like I'm off to find an animated video of how they work before I run my mouth any more.

    15. Perhaps, instead you might have shot one of those cheap SCCY semi autos. They look very similar to a glock and have that DAO feel on the trigger pull. Not only on the first round like a springfield xde, but every round, like a ruger sp 101. Jus tryin ta help a brotha out. Ohio Guy

  3. Getting picky. The lead says the woman "accidentally" bought the pistol. No, she wanted the holster the pistol was in, if we are to believe the information provided. And, Greeneville has a population of a bit more than 16,000. No one at the unnamed church had the wherewithal to check the pistol? What kind of people they raising over there?
