    That must have been a pretty big suitcase holding a box with four guns in it!

    Why are they carrying Glocks? The Israelis manufacture plenty of their own high-quality weapons.

    I may just be reading your post wrong but it felt like you were saying that glocks are low-quality and not worth using. Well, though they have their drawbacks, there is a reason most every police force around the world uses glocks. I think its because they have a tendency to go bang every time. I have shot every common semi auto sold in the US and I can say that the Glock is by far the most reliable of all of them. The HK is a close second. Don't take this to mean I am a glock lover. I am just giving my experience.

    I think his point was that the Israelis have great pride in their domestic arms designs, so it's surprising that they would outsource. The other thing you have to remember is that to a "journalist", every pistol is a Glock and every rifle is an AK-47.

    I can accept that. What high quality semi auto pistol does Israel make?

    Does the Israeli PM travel commercial. I wouldn't think so. Why does his security have to check their weapons?

    I'm surprised they were not Jericho's.

    Glock jams!

    My Glock jammed. I have to admit it was more the fault of the ammo than the pistol. Factory round would not chamber, even manually. Had the same problem with my Winchester '94. Factory ammo is NOT infallible.

    Back to the topic. I wonder how deep they will dig to get to the bottom of this?

    We used to take pride too.... that explains the US Military using Beretta 92F's instead of a US design.

    Anyway, I would imagine some of the security folks traveled regular commercial and may well have come early to make sure that the hotel security was up to par. Stuff happens.

    You should see all the advance stuff that is done prior to the President staying in a hotel. Lots of regular police and the Secret Sevice folks. They are at the hotel at least a day prior to the President's arrival. I ran into them once at a hotel in Austin TX. I decided to stay elsewhere.

    Quote: "What kind of high quality semi-auto pistols does isreal make"?

    Magnum Reasearch's Desert Eagles and Baby Eagles would probably be the most notable, I know Uzi's are not semi- auto but they are surely one of Isreal's prided weapons. Isreali's don't play, there's definitely something to be said for a handheld weapon that can shoot 10 .44magnum rounds accurately out to 100 yards. You can hunt elephants with the damn things.

    I know they're plenty accurate, but it's not really what they're "known for".

    Where did you get that? To me it sounded like he was saying the Glocks are high quality, by saying Israel also makes high quality weapons--as in the emphasis on "their own".

    A lot? Absolutely. "Most every"? I don't know about that...

    I wasn't immune either, I had a Colt Trooper stolen at LAX while flying home from Alaska and one of my friends had his Glock 17 stolen there also.

    But Magnum Research imports the Israeli guns and does not build them.

    These weren't stolen at LAX. These were stolen in D.C. and the luggage they were contained in was sent to LAX.

    When Obama invites him, he gets to fly coach in the middle seat between two huge men. His bodyguards get their guns stolen. And he has to enter the White House through the service entrance next to the huge stack of garbage. They're not exactly friendly with each other.

    Iono, why do U.S. leos carry glocks when S&W make guns, why does the United States military carry an Italian made gun?

    This is just one more reason to buy a Glock. If it gets stolen, it's only a Glock....

    I wouldn't want to be the ones holding those guns. I wouldn't want the Mossad coming to my house to retrieve their guns. The FBI is one thing, but the Israelis deal with things differently...........:uhoh:
