Ron,

What is/or defines a French set trigger ?

Thanks.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's a single set trigger that you push forward from behind to "set" for a hair-trigger release.

Instead of the standard double triggers on a "set trigger", the french set trigger has a single trigger that is "set" by first pushing it forward.

Both my CZs have caused inexperienced shooters to touch the triggers too hard and fire prematurely.


DAMN even beat by a guy with CZ in his NAME!

^^^ Amazing, articulate, and knowledgeable.

The problem is that fact threatens the legislature... The emporer has no clothes. Their only "power" is to pass even more laws that cannot or will not be followed. We have way too many of those already. It's worse than the other abject failure in this country, the "tax code" that nobody can understand.

The solution to complex socio-economic problems creating gangland USA is NOT more laws. The solution to complex individual psychological problems is NOT more laws...

But when all you have is a hammer.....

fear, it makes sense if you view law enforcement as an industry. You don't want to use up all
of your primary commodity and put yourself out of business, do you?

If your going to ban guns, why not ban cars, kitchen knives, motorcycles, bicycles, boats, saws, trampolines, and hammers among others? Those are just as dangerous as guns, and car and motorcycle related deaths are much more common than gun related deaths.

...why not ban cars...

I'm sure there's an office somewhere in the EPA working on that...

Ma Deuce and horses 1933.

Amazing that it's essentially unchanged and still performing the same tactical function.

John Browning was a genius, period. If you haven't been to his museum
in Ogden, Utah you haven't lived. I'll be going there again real soon.

4 Mexicans drove into the middle of Edmunds Drive around 11:00 am this morning and just started firing at cars, people, houses whatever. One witness said as many as forty to fifty shots.


And people wonder why America is arming itself at an all time rate.

Translation: We need more guns because there's a lot of people running around with guns.

We need guns in the hands of good, law-abiding citizens because there's bad, not law-abiding citizens running around with guns, and the cops can't be everywhere in the nick of time to defend the good citizens.

There, fixed it for you, Gary.

"Debate" sandbox......don't think so. Why debate when you can pontificate?

donini, the Internets was invented so we could pontificate. That's what makes it fun.

Madbolter, that the proliferation of guns in society can be cured by the proliferation of guns in society just doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure it does wonders for Sam Colt's bottom line, though.
