Amnesty Begins for Unlicensed Guns in West Australia
Gun owners in Western Australia with unlicensed firearms have three months to hand them in without facing charges. The state government launched a firearms amnesty on Thursday and will run the program until the end of October. As long as the firearms have not been stolen or used in criminal activities, people will be immune from prosecution. Police Minister Liza Harvey said it was the first amnesty in WA since 2006. “This is the time to act because, outside the… [WA Today (Australia), via GunPolicy.org]

Insight Technology

Insight Technology 3/25/2012 1:18:57 AM I had the same type of issue with my G20SF, and my reloads. I tightened the crimp up just a little and things goot better. I’ve got a G20 (gen 3) that’s experiencing occasional FTFs. Each FTF is the same; the round is about half way into the chamber from the magazine, but simply seems to get “stuck” there. For most of these FTFs, a quick slap to the magazine base will finish sending the round into the chamber (ie, first part of a type one malfunction clearance drill). The FTFs have occurred using the gun stock, as well as with a 20# recoil spring, and finally with a KKM barrel (17 & 20# springs). All told, the gun has over 700 rounds through it. Since 10mm is so stinking expensive in factory form, the only ammo my G20 has ever been fed are my reloads (off of a Dillon 550). So there’s always a chance my reloads are part (if not all) of the problem. All of my reloads have used Starline brass, and most all have used 180gr Hornady XTP bullets. For powder, I’ve used Longshot (mv of ~1250), Titegroup (mv ~1150), and AA #9 (mv ~1175). Failures have occured with any of these powders, but seem to be more common when using AA #9 (4 to 5 in the space of 50 rounds). All rounds have been loaded to an OAL of 1.26″ (per loading manual specs), and taper crimped. I’ve inspected the barrels (stock & KKM), and have been unable to see anything to cause this. Also, the ejector seems to work freely enough (not dirty or stuck). With the 20# recoil spring, most all of the brass lands at about 4:00, approx. 8-10 feet away. I’m using a solid two-handed hold (no limp wristing going on here). Am I perhaps missing something in my loading (OAL too long?), or do I need to send the gun back to Glock? Are there any other “magic” things I’ve missed? I’ve reloaded for & shot over 5,000 rounds of 9mm in my G17 with no issues, if that helps any. Any Insight Technology into what’s going on would be greatly appreciated. FedDC

Trijicon SRS

10/11/2011 7:32:36 PM TCBA_Joe: SinistralRifleman: topgunpilot20: Interesting, but the Aimpoint still destroys it in battery life despite the Trijicon using solar power during the day. I want clarification if the 3 years is battery only or combo. The way the statement was written leads me to believe it is self sufficient in day light. From the writeups and video it seems that the battery life is 3 years, but in sunlight it doesn’t use batteries (the video shows them firing with an empty battery compartment). So I would imagine it’s 3 yr battery only. The way it’s written suggests that the battery lasts 3 years when taking into account that the sun will be powering the optic during the day. From this article it seems that the actual constant battery life without the photovoltaic cell is actually much shorter, but Trijicon figures that the battery will last about 3 years during average usage with both sun and battery power combined. From the article: They set it up to run from the solar panel on top when there’s sunlight available, leaving the battery unmolested ’till the sun goes down. Once it gets dark, only then does it draw on the battery. The optic should last a few years this way. Someone who only shoots on the range during daytime would be good to go for a long time, but someone who puts it on a HD only rifle that stays indoors may not have much battery life since the sun will almost never be powering it. However, this is just a preliminary review, and we may not know for sure until SHOT. Either way, 3 years of battery life is still the best of any non-Aimpoint optic and nothing to sneeze at since you still have a daylight capable optic even after the battery is at. I’m just glad to see Trijicon release a new rifle optic. Last year’s bow sight was pretty disappointing. TCBA_Joe
