"An hour later the good Samaritan found a magazine to a 40mm Glock which had been stuffed under the car seat and reported it to us," Brooks said."



Anyone know where I can ge one? :neener: :p

Since when does Glock make anti-aircraft weapons? Whoa.

Lemmeseehere... 40mm = 1.577 inches. Is it a single stack or 17 round double stack?:D :D

I can't wait to get one of these babies!! I hope Milt Sparks will make an ankle holster for it!!

Wonder it it'll fit in my Hellweg Paddle Speed holster the same as the rest of my Glocks?

Better than a .09 caliber, I guess.

Our local news recently reported on a shooting with a 22 gauge handgun. :confused:

We had a self-defense shooting not too long ago in Richmond. The guy used a "40 mm handgun." Must have been one of those Glocks.

And people think a 500 S&W kicks. :what:

Dont really care for glocks, but if they're making 'em in 40mm I might have to reconsider. Id hate to have a kB with one though...

Dont knock the 40 mm, its great for taking out entire formations of water foul.

.09 caliber isn't that bad. When I was living in London, some of the crooks were apparently using .9mm Berettas...

(Although I suppose when it's criminals' guns your talking about, the smaller the better).

40mm? Pshaw.

Wake me when they make plasma rifles in the 40 watt range. :evil:

I wonder if we can convince the brady bunch or some such group that a 40mm glock fires the same "awsomely deadly" round as that 40mm AA cannon that can shoot down planes at 20 miles and drop sky scrapers by just grazing the building next door. I am sure they would think that no civilian needs somthing so potent as a 40mm Glock. It would be just absolutely hillarious to read that press release then rake em over the coals with it.

All I see is "Mystery Deepens In Ferrari Crash". I didn't see it make any mention of a Glock 40 mm.

The real question is, does the 40mm Glock have "da switch"?

Well I guess the question of what gun is best for MZNBs has been answered.

I really like the .12 gauge shotguns. If 12/100 of a single pellet weighs a pound then the whole pellet must be an ~8.5lb cannonball.

That lawyer is lucky Cheney wasn't using one of those.

Don't worry about the 40mm thing...Ch11 (LA area Fox) said the glock was "invisible to x-rays":cuss:

Heh. I was in south Georgia once, and I noticed the officers were carrying Sig P226s (most carry Glocks). I asked one if it was in .357, and he said, "nope, it's a 40mm."

"Wow. And you carry that on your hip?"

"Yeah, it's a little heavier than the Glock."

"I'll bet." :)

Are these people for real??

"There was no Mercedes SLR," Brooks said. "Simply, there was a Ferrari with two people in it. One of these men was driving."

Gee! Ya think? You should be working for the FBI.

Another mystery is the Glock ammunition magazine found near the crash. Brooks said detectives believe it's connected to the crash but don't know how.

Connected? How? Is this going to be a new angle on gun control?

I recall many news channels/papers reporting that Cheney shot a lawyer in the face with "buckshot".

I can see it now. "Unrestricted gun magazine found to be a causal factor in high speed car crashes." :what:

I hope someone chambers it in a steel frame to help temper the recoil a little bit.:o
Does anybody have the molds for casting? :)

Wanna guess who taught Brooks his detective skills?....

40mm? Sissy gun! I was watching a film on Vietnam one time and the narrator informed us that the soldier was "armed only with his 45 millimeter handgun." There's nothing "only" about a 45 millimeter handgun!
