the 9mm is a sissy cartridge, the .40 is the real deal. Take a hit from one and tell me otherwise.
You may as well turn the 9mm around and pistol whip with it for all its good.
Im no fan of the pastic fantastic glock, remember, if you are in trouble sometimes whatever you have in your hand becomes a blunt object, and who wants to pistol whip a guy with plastic? Ill keep my big K frame revolver and goverment .45 thanks!

DUE TO THE VIOLENCE AND MAYHEM, READ THIS ARTICLE BELOW. D.C. STREETS ARE BECOMING DIRT AND TRASH.
An (AP) News Update Report:

The family of a man gunned down in an alley in the Trinidad community late Monday wants answers and some looting and rioting have been going on in some areas due to the anger generated by the events that took place. Arsons and shootings are on the rise according to investigators and local police. US Park Police, responding to a call about a man with a gun, confronted 24 year old Trey Joyner at Holbrooke and Morse. Within seconds, he was dead. Shot multiple times. His sister, Quston Joyner said, " this is a hurtful thing for me to lose a brother-- for my mother to lose a son and unless we get justice for my family, we plan to make some trouble in the neighborhood and hire several gangs to trash the D.C. streets as a revenge against the lousy law enforcement and the bad neighborhoods." Joyner's dad Walter is questioning police response and said that they are terrible. "They executed my son," he says. "That's exactly what they did and our family is planning to have the neighbors start a riot and a revolt against the government and police." The officers are part of a joint FBI, DC, and US Park Police task force called Operation Safe Streets. They've been targeting high crime areas like Trinidad to try and curb violence but to no avail. Despite efforts, crime has been going up ever since and people are moving out because of it. Joyner's family says they went too far last night and because of it they plan to make a public issue of that. "We are questioning it,"Quston Joyner says. "We saw his body. He was shot in the back several times and due to that we plan to trash and burn this town and make trouble for the neighborhoods to make our point." The US Park Police officers are on administrative leave while DC police investigate the shooting. They did find a gun in the alley.
Joyner's family has questions about that too. "They planted it,"Peaches Joyner says. "That's what I think and if a riot breaks out, they just run away and hide down at the police station like cowards because they know they did wrong". Although the streets were filled with people on a warm late spring night when the shooting happened, DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier says it will still take some time to unravel it all. "Our investigation has only just begun and the family of the victim and neighbors are just overreacting," Lanier says. Reality is setting in for Walter Joyner--a father of five. "It's a big loss," he says. " That's my baby son."

CRIME MEANS THE END OF THE WORLD:
Written by New World Government Director, Gerald Preston:

"There is a race war against whites. But our people - my white brothers and sisters - will stay committed to a non-violent resolution. Barack Obama is causing America to go into a recession. He is letting violent criminals out of prisons and on the streets and he is putting gays in the schools and militarys. That is wrong and we want WHITE, REPUBLICAN AND AMERICAN people as presidents, not crappy kenyan primates running our country. Walter Joyner the father of that primate that got rigged by some whiteycop is obama's lover and they are gay too. That resolution must consist of solidarity in white communities around the world. The hatred for our children and their future is growing and is being fueled every single day. Stay firm in your convictions. Keep loving your heritage and keep witnessing to others that there is a better way than a war torn, violent, wicked, socialist, new world order. That way is the Christian way - law and order - love of family - love of nation. These are the principles of western Christian civilization. There is a war to destroy these things. Pray that our people see the error of their ways and regain a sense of loyalty. Repent America! Be faithful my fellow believers. "

Like I said earlier, the Petworth neighborhood has a bunch of crips, bloods and other gangs such as the 4th street mob that call cops pigs and steal cars from elderly residents and mug old ladies in the alleys. The neighborhood has a history of being one of the worst. I feel for Cathy Lanier because she has a job that is way above her head. I am worried that one day, she may be attacked by some 14 or 15 gang members. She is going to need help from the National Guard to deal with the crime in the area.
The real test for the police chief is to go through the summer and if she is still in one piece, she is WONDERWOMAN. Otherwise, she will be a statistic just like down in New Orleans, LA where a cop tried to stop a motorcycle thief but got stabbed to death with a knife that was stolen from a hardware store by the thief. Sadly, the thief was never caught.

I do not condone what these kids do in this neighborhood, but have you ever watched someone die? You all talk about killing a child who never stood a chance in the first place, because no one was there to guide him. Not his addicted mother or his absent father. You people talk about these kids like they are animals. These are the same children, like yours, that were a gift from God. I know not one of you have asked what you could do to make their lives any different. Why should you? You come into neighborhoods you left long ago, because of the same children you sit here and call monkeys. You are the monkeys; the ones that are trained to hate by your fathers and their fathers. The ones who smile at their neighbors and speak to them, and wonder what that n---er does to afford that house or that car. How dare you want to talk about what you have not lived. You all want to be the good guys, but what do you do to help the situation. TALK! All talk and no action. Have you ever tried to mentor a child? Of course your scared ass hasn't. You're to busy talking to try to help the situation. Did you ever wonder how these kids had to grow up? Most of them were grown by the time they were 6 years old. On the street by 11. Selling drugs to survive by 12. Don't you dare sit there with your UGG slippers on trying to figure out what is wrong with the children of the Columbia Heights-Petworth neighborhood. Ask them when was the last time they ate? When was the last time they saw their mom? How many of their little brothers and sisters are they taking care of. You condescending jerks, how well do you sleep at night on a full stomach? This neighborhood is a slow painful death for a lot of kids. They never get out. So if it is not too hard, be mindful of what you say. What you think, really doesn't matter, but what you say has a great impact.

Oh yeah....nevermind the living police officer over the age of 21! You wouldn't be so sympathetic if that "14 year old kid" ran over you or one of your own!
