I like Kimber products. Good value. Decent performers. Shot a bunch of them and liked them all. For carry, I like the .40 S&W little glock. Shoot one. Be impressed with the punch and combat accuracy. Then compare that price to the Kimber... As a practical carry piece, that little Glock is hard to beat

dJack, absent a charge there is no need to prove innocence. Legal fiction to be sure but trust me, the issue is "demonstrated need" not innocence or suitability/fitness. Mind you I speak relative to the state of MD law regarding CCW. I have some familiarity with VA law concerning CCW but none regarding the other 48.

MD lacks the balls to try it in court. I'd like to see that doctrine go down in flames. At the very least, there should be a viable, neutral appeals process through which individuals could challenge denials. With respect to some other comments made here, there is a federal law now in place that grants CCW to all LEOs retired and active. That law works in all 50 states.

""demonstrated need".

PA ruled that unconstitutional a couple of years ago.

(most laws concerning gun control consider people guilty until they prove themselves innocent in direct contravention to the previous statement.)

**************************************

Not exactly. There is no charge levied against a CCW applicant. The legal term of art that applies here is "demonstrated need". It bypasses suitability determinations with respect to the individual. This is the state of law regarding this issue in MD. I don't agree with it. In MD, it allows the subjective reasoning of the judiciary (with input from the state police) to supplant that of the applicant. MD law is ridiculous IMHO in that it does not allow for appeal of denials.

For Once, Hillary Is Right Friday, October 10, 2008 In an April 2008 campaign mailer, Hillary Clinton warned voters about Barack Obama's radical record against guns and gun owners. The teaser asked, "Where does Barack Obama really stand on guns?" The ad then answered, "Depends on who Barack Obama is talking to."

The piece went on to detail several of Obama's anti-gun stances.

Of course, this is not news to us. Although he is now trying to run from his anti-gun past, Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in American history.

It's not often that NRA agrees with the likes of Hillary Clinton, but in this case, we have to give credit where credit is due. Hillary was right: You can't trust Obama with your guns.

Friday, October 10, 2008 With the prospect of Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) being elected President of the United States, the Brady Campaign is trying to rejuvenate public interest in one of the group's priority issues: a ban on all detachable-magazine semi-automatic firearms, a vast expansion of the federal "assault weapon" law of 1994--2004. As Brady notes in a new propaganda paper, "Assault Weapons: Mass Produced Mayhem," "Senator Barack Obama supports banning assault weapons."

Gun owners who still believe that Obama may be after some people's guns, but not theirs, might want to read Brady's paper. The group advocates "a stronger, more comprehensive law" than the one imposed in 1994-one that would ban the manufacture of all semi-automatic firearms "capable of accepting a detachable, high-capacity ammunition magazine." Gun owners better think again, if they think that verbiage doesn't apply to them, just because they don't have "high capacity" magazines for their deer rifles and pistols. It doesn't matter what kind of magazines they have; what matters is whether a larger magazine could be inserted in their gun. Reality check: Any gun that uses a detachable magazine is capable of using one of any size. The District of Columbia has used that basis to define the seven-round-magazine Model 1911 .45 pistol as a "machine gun," along with all other semi-automatics that typically use magazines holding a similar number of rounds.

Historic Colt pistol sells for $920,000 in Maine Previous owner from Montana says revolver passed down through family

updated 12:27 p.m. CT, Thurs., Oct. 9, 2008 FAIRFIELD, Maine - The sale price of a historic Colt Walker pistol has broken a record for all guns made by the company, an auctioneer in Maine said.

An anonymous bidder paid $920,000 on Tuesday for the .44-caliber revolver, said officials from the James D. Julia auction house. It was made for U.S. marshals in the 1840s and its previous owner said he never fired it.

The price included a buyer's fee of $120,000 charged by the auctioneer.

Julia was also the auctioneer for the previous Colt record of $480,000.

The gun was an heirloom passed down from John McBride's great-great-uncle. The 80-year-old from Montana said some of the money will be used to buy land in that state.
