    Proof once again that there's nothing new under the sun...

    That's why it's called REsearch & development

    Anyone who goes walking with a concealed firearm needs to move to a better neighborhood or go back to their bomb shelter.

    I guess you don't live in one of the 31 US states that allows law abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon for personal defense.

    I'm in Texas, I don't need to be lectured about gun laws friend-o
    I'm was just saying that it strikes me as being extremely paranoid. (That is taking the trash out with a flashlight gun)

    It's not a matter of being paranoid.. it's a matter of exercising one's right to carry and defend themselves if the need arises. The news over the last two weeks should speak volumes on the need for personal defense. Law enforcement is definitely not there to "protect" anyone.

    Anyway, no need to detract from the original thread... I doubt Magpul will ever market the FM-9, but it is an interesting approach to give the Glock 18 some more use.

    While that is pretty nifty, i highly doubt anyone would need to use it in the situation they describe. I mean, unless your ****e to sporadic attack by ninjas while you walk your dog, then by all means go ahead and buy one.

    Like the ARES, I'm thinking the FM-9 would be used by security specialists for VIP protection work rather than your average home defense person.

    (Yes, they are toys. It's called "Earth Humor" Nanoo Nanoo.)


    Forget the gun when the flashligh tcan do the dirty work....

    The "Torch"
    "Sure, there's always the pukelight (Look it up) for good times around the house, but sometimes you've just got to do some damage -- which is where The Torch from Wicked Lasers comes in. The 4100-lumen flashlight is being considered for the Guinness Book of World Records, and can ignite paper, light cigarettes, melt plastic, and even fry an egg -- but only has a fifteen minute battery life."

    Being practical, wasn't the original ar-7 marketed to hikers and campers. I could see it being carried around in a ruk for emergencies/hunting. Would all depend on how accurate is was.

    I'm assuming he's referring to what is now called the US Survival .22 which is still being made. This wasn't as much for personal defense as it is a survival tool. IIRC, these were issued to pilots at one point to use for small game hunting during E&E. The floating stock is a nice touch, too, as you could store additional items such as matches and what not.

    I've handled one of these in the field and the accuracy is about what you'd expect for a generic .22.

    Nice kit, if you don't want other people to be aware of your paranoia. Great alternative to taking out the garbage with an Uzi and a flashlight.
