Re: Why The Glock 19?

I like my 19, for all the stated reasons, but when I got it I didn't realize it wouldn't have sa/da capability like my Taurus and Makarov do. IMO, a Glock with sa/da and a decocking safety (or just a decocker) would be about the perfect gun. As it is, I just have to remember to keep my finger off t...

Re: Big Ecoli outbreak

Could be wrong but my understanding is that Germany does use humanure on crops. Pretty illegal but things happen as all those waste water treatment plants want to get rid of the garbage they take out of the water. I think it´s interesting as the outbreak is close to an area called "Gülledreieck" wh...

Re: Magnified optics on a fighting carbine: worst idea ever

Well, i have mounted a so called "Drückjagdglas" (sorry i can not find the right translation) which is intended for hog hunting in dense brush and has a red-dot and a variable zoom from 1x to 4x for "far" shots.

Works pretty well, also with both eyes open.
