Henry Vichique received word that his case was dismissed following the recommendation of city prosecutor Elizabeth Yetman.

Every shooter disqualifies, even the pros
Guns & Ammo

New York Times fails in reading comprehension
National Shooting Sports Foundation
Recently, the New York Times published an article, “FBI Confirms a Sharp Rise in Mass Shootings Since 2000.” If this were actually the case, it may have been newsworthy.

A case for the Glock 38?
Guns Magazine
While the majority of police departments in the U.S. carry a Glock pistol for duty, only a handful of them chose Glock’s Model 38, a compact chambered in Glock’s namesake caliber, the .45 Glock Automatic Pistol, or .45 GAP. The cartridge is basically a shortened version of the .45 ACP — there are other differences, though — created to fit in compact-framed Glock pistols before the company came up with the "short frame" design.

Smith & Wesson was another first class handgun maker in our country, but they had nothing to compete with the .38 Super Automatic, so they went to work with the help of Elmer Keith .
