:shame: Nope! 'Squeeze', 'press', 'slap', or, 'pull' the trigger DO NOT mean the same thing; nor can these terms be (correctly) used interchangeably between either: (1) specific (and prerequisite) methods of firing a weapon, or (2) interchangeably among rifles, pistols, and shotguns.

The general consensus (with which I agree) is that you, 'squeeze' a rifle trigger; but, 'press' (or, 'slap') a combat pistol trigger. 'Pull' is an archaic term that is being used less and less...

Glock's, 'Gold-Colored Grease'

Posted 11-13-2012 at 09:54 by Arc Angel

So, what is Glock's, 'gold-colored grease used for, and can you leave it on the pistol?

Frankly I’m a little bit dismayed! I was recently notified that my old school is holding it’s annual alumni day event this week. I’ve never gone to any of these things in the past; and I won’t be going to the one that's being held this year, either.

As I mentioned to my wife the other day: You can’t, ever, really go back. You just can’t. Events like this one can, also, bring up as many unpleasant as pleasant memories, as well: Nobody looks the same; everybody looks older,...
