    If I am ever foolish enough to run for public office I will raffle off as many guns as I can. It's a great publicity stunt!

    FWIW, I wish he would have raffled off guns that weren't full of nanny-state 'safety' features. The LC9 has a loaded chamber indicator and a magazine safety, plus a manual safety. Blech...

    OK, I give up. What's wrong with a loaded chamber indicator? What's wrong with a manual safety?

    I'm not keen on mag disconnects.

    I can't believe this would raise any eyebrows at all in Tri-Cities. Their local 1000 yard range is a county park after all.

    And it is a great shooting area! Everybody on NWFA should try to go there once. The wind can really blow, but it is so much fun shooting at steel targets at 450 and 1,000 yards. Non-members only pay $10, skeet is only $4.

    I don't think the manual safety is necessary with the LC9's ten mile, twenty pound trigger.

    LCI's and magazine disconnects are California requirements that are forced upon the rest of us by Ruger because they're too lazy to make models without those "features". At least S&W gives you the option on their M&P's.

    Never did understand why they put a mag disconnect safety on the Hi Power.

    " Never did understand why they put a mag disconnect safety on the Hi Power ".
    -

    Magazine Trigger Disconnect Mechanism . Because people DON'T rack the Slide to check if there is one in the Pipe .

    example:
    Olm pulled the trigger, firing the fatal shot that struck Pedersen above the eye.
    Olm told police that
    ..."there wasn’t a magazine in the handgun ".

    when he showed it to the boys. He also admitted that he did not work the action to check it or clear it to ensure there wasn’t a round in the chamber.

    Thanks

    This makes me wonder if FN had some slick lawyers in 1935. :)

    I heard about this this morning. I love it. Great idea, and he apparently knows his constituency. Out there it should fly really well.
