The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Good article and I'm one who mostly saves revolvers for woods work and semi's for daily carry.  My exception is that at home, on the property, I carry my S&W MP .357 and two reloaders. 
Everyday I write the truth to who I am by what I do.
Life achieves its summit, when it does the uttermost what it was equipped to do.
It's always easier to shift the responsibility of one's existence, to lean on others rather than stand alone, but I refuse to place my destiny in another's hands.

Rather convenient that he forgets the 10mm and .357Sig calibers when discussing (in a reasonable fashion, yes) the power limitations of the semi-auto. I can see him not mentioning semis in .44 and .357 mag calibers because they're rare beasts.

And I think both Glock and Sig--for that matter the original 1911 design made to the original specs--laid the reliability issues firmly to rest. Even the original 1911, as I recall, worked well in Europe and Asia and were not given to flipping out the some mud and blood and beer they were exposed to.

I just read the article.

Uh, I guess I have no comments about it.
Everything he said, we all knew already, so, eh...ok.

I still love em both.
