GLOCK 21: 18 Years And 200K Rounds – Dropped, Buried, Frozen

If you are anything like me, at the beginning of your career retirement was something that barely registered on the radar. But as the years and miles stack up, handing over the reigns to the next generation becomes more and more attractive. For the most part, guns are different – unlike disposable accessories such as magazines, most guns are built to last a lifetime, depending on round counts, environmental variables and maintenance schedules. In the case of this soon to be retired Glock 21, it has been tested in more ways than one over nearly two decades of use.

Steve, owner/operator of ADCO Firearms and one of the most knowledgeable people in the world on the MK12 AR15 platform, recently posted some pictures of his personally owned Glock 21. Over 18 years of ownership, he has torture tested this pistol by burying it for two years, freezing, salting and dropping it from an airplane. After noticing damage to the locking lug, Steve may finally decide to retire his piece, although I personally think it just needs a new barrel to keep running.

EPIC GLOCK 21 FROM STEVE AT ADCO FIREARMS:

Yes, that’s my 21. I had records and more pics but lost most everything in a hard drive crash several years ago. A few of us started doing that stupid stuff as a joke. I never expected it to be as popular as it became. Yesterday I was thinking about when we dropped it off a garage onto the blacktop with a primed case. It didn’t go off but hit hard enough to smash the bullets out of round.

 

Glock 21

All I replaced were the sights and recoil springs. The only pic I have of the bore is when it went 13K rounds without cleaning

Sadly, I think it’s about finished. The front locking lug is noticeably worn, probably to the point where it is unlocking sooner than it should.

POTD: H&K’s New HK433

Larry Vicker’s was sent some photos of the HK433 by a German fan. The HK433 is H&K’s new rifle.

It is interesting that they are going with Keymod but the rest of the gun reminds me of the FN SCAR,  the Beretta ARX 100 and the Remington ACR.

Behind the magwell I see what looks like a bolt catch/release similar to the ACR. Beneath that it looks like H&K went with a lever style mag release.

Blogger forced to pay Army Col. $8.4 million over false rape accusations

In 2013, blogger and jeweler designer Susan Shannon, 52, accused US Army Colonel Wil Riggins, 52, of rape while the pair were cadets at West Point in the 1986. This week a jury in Fairfax, Virgina cleared the now retired Colonel’s reputation and ordered Shannon to pay him $8.4 million in damages after her accusations cost him a promotion to the rank of General.

When asked why she had waited nearly 3 decades to make her accusations, Shannon said “There’s what we call a silent code. You don’t turn people in,” according to Washington D.C. ABC affiliate WJLA 7.

Shannon and Col. Riggins wore West Point grey together in the mid 1980s. They followed a simple code: duty, honor and country. Both parties felt they were let down.

“I did feel like I’d been abandoned by the Army,” Col. Riggins told WJLA 7 after Army leaders learned about Shannon’s rape accusations posted to her blog. In 2014 Secretary of the Army John McHugh suggested that Col. Riggins be passed over for promotion as the armed forces were being heavily criticized for heir response to sexual assault cases. Col. Riggins retired shortly thereafter.

“I was raped in 1986 by another cadet,” Shannon said. “Frankly the day I started saying his name was the day I started blaming him instead of myself.”

Col. Riggins said he was “blindsided” by Shannon’s allegations and that his career was ruined. “I never got a day in court,” Riggins explains, “Susan Shannon decided to play judge and jury on her own.”

Both Col. Riggins and Shannon participated in a CID investigation that could not “prove or disprove Ms. Shannon’s allegation she was raped,” reports the Washington Post.

Following the CID investigation results, Col. Riggins sued Shannon for defamation claiming that all of her allegations were “provably false.” He accused her of writing two blogs and a Facebook posts that were timed specifically to “intentionally derail [his] promotion” to brigadier general.

On August 1, 2017, a Jury sided with Col. Riggins after more than 2 hours of deliberation. Shannon was ordered to pay a $3.4 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Punitive damages in Virginia are typically limited to no more than $350,000, but punishment was set higher “to make sure nothing like this will ever happen again,” said one juror.

Shannon said she was devastated. “I feel like I’m a financial slave for the rest of my life” she told the Washington Post. “I told the truth in my article and at trial.”

Col. Riggins felt vindicated. “This journey we’ve been on the last four years,” he said, “it’s been a nightmare. … The large dollar amount is meaningless. All I was looking for was the opportunity to be vindicated, to set the record straight, to take every action to get my reputation back to where it was before the 15th of July [2013], when she published that false accusation.”

Belt-fed Mk 19 Grenade Launcher in action on full auto

The Mark 19 grenade launcher is an American made 40 mm belt-fed automatic tool of destruction.

Developed during the Vietnam War, the first version of the Mark 19 (Mod 0) was considered too unsafe and unreliable in 1966. By 1972 the Navy had improved the weapon significantly with the Mod 1. By 1983 the US Army adopted the Mod 3, which remains in service even today.

The practical fire rate of the Mk 19 is about 60 rounds per minute for rapid fire, or 40 rounds per minute for sustained fire with a maximum distance over 2,400 yards.

The US Army is rolling out a variety of new features for the Mk 19 that could be introduced as early as the end of this year. Those features included faster muzzle velocity, increased cyclic rate, a redesigned round-positioning block that will reduce misfires, improved durability, and more.

Arrested drunk man sings Bohemian Rhapsody in cop car, sells rights to pay DUI fine

Robert Wilkinson, 29, has found his 15 minutes of fame in the form of a squad car video showcasing his singing skills.

The heavily inebriated Wilkinson was picked up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for impaird driving and refusing to take a brethalyzer test, according to Canada’s The Globe and Mail.

Wilkinson complied with the officers’ commands and agreed to be taken in. For his compliance, the Canadian police officers elected not to handcuff the drunk Alberta man for the short trip back to their station.

After declaring that he was not intoxicated in slurred speech, Wilkinson began singing the 1975 Queen classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” to the best of his ability. Footage of his performance was later used in his trial.

According to The Globe and Mail, Wilkinson arrived at his trial date wearing a horned Viking helmet and a NASA t-shirt bearing the words “I need my space.” He refused the services of a defense lawyer and represented himself.

After failing to convince the court that his arrest was a violation of his Charter rights, Wilkinson was given a $1,400 fine and had his driver’s license suspended for one year.

Wilkinson was later paid $1,000 by the American cable network TruTV for permission to air the video without obscuring his face on their show World’s Dumbest Criminals.Source

Water main explodes, asphalt flies over two story building as street floods with water

A water main exploded in the streets of Kyiv, Ukraine with such force that chunks of asphalt were sent flying over a two story building.

The entire accident was captured on video by a set of security cameras.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but a few vehicles and buildings were severely damaged by the blast.

 

A mushroom shaped “bubble” of mud and water was seen blasting upward with the force of a small bomb.

The accident was caused by a hydraulic test conducted by the water authority on pipes that were installed in 1979.
