We always need to remember that Law Enforcement, the Military and Civilians all face different threats and risks as well as different needs and constraints.Jar,
Count yourself LUCKY. - In the "PC World of 2020", I would not want to be a rookie/young LEO. = I did my "time in the barrel" when most people still thought well of peace officers.
Truthfully, if this current "SJW thing" goes on much longer, I don't know where we will find decent folks to BE a Peace Officer.
(I worked for a couple of years in Upstate NY & hardly anybody that I knew is still on the job, IF they could retire. LOTS of other LEOs, who didn't have enough time in to retire, have simply QUIT.)
SAD SITUATION, imVho.
I have seen such pistols before, just never knew there was a name attached to that particular modifications.Named after the initial modifier.
Yes, it does! I did see a Glock that was modded with NO trigger guard on Gunbroker for sale some years ago. The seller was asking stupid money for the pistol. I'll see if I can locate some pictures of it.Nice gun. I have been looking at Charter myself recently for a knock around pocket gun.
I hadn't ever heard of this. Googled it and holy moly....you're right. That's a bad idea that should stay in the 20th century.
John Wayne would use many of his own personal weapons in his movies. Several of his SAA Colts were modified with larger trigger guards to accommodate his large hands.A buddy back in SC probably Fitzed as many revolvers as Fitzgerald did. Many times when he would acquire a short barrel S&W or Colt, he would do a Fitz job on it. He always would say that all of the others in the world would be worth more.
Bill Jordan would narrow the trigger guard on his revolvers. I've wanted to do this to my old Model 36 but I just haven't done it yet.
Roy Scheider ("Chief Brody") & John Wayne are the only 2 actors that I can think offhand that used their own weapons in their movies. = Most movie guns & the vintage cars are RENTED from a prop house.John Wayne would use many of his own personal weapons in his movies.

Chuck Connors. He owned one of the rifles that was modified for the series, The Rifleman. Tom Selleck. Owned a couple of the rifles used in the movie, Quigley Down Under. One of them he donated to the NRA Museum.Roy Scheider ("Chief Brody") & John Wayne are the only 2 actors that I can think offhand that used their own weapons in their movies. = Most movie guns are RENTED from a prop house.
(Roy Scheider bought his from DCM, before CMP was established. IF I remember correctly he paid about 50 bucks for it. - I read that in some article about the making of JAWS.)
