I bet the police would not pay for the cleanup, the buyer would, or the original owner would be forced to pay.

I owned several Hi-Points for years as plinking guns.

They are actually more abuse-resistant than a Glock in the capabilities... just not in the field. A Glock will fire if it's covered in mud... a Hi-Point will fire a 147gr hand-made bullet with 3x the powder charge with-out a hiccup. Quite frankly the higher the charge, the better the gun runs, as it is a blow-back design.

On the other hand if you drop it in the mud, you get one shot... then you better start swinging with it.

I personally would not use a GLOCK outside my home.
Plastic guns are NOT made for "the field"....lmao.
If you need a handgun to fire after it's been covered in mud, you have much bigger probvlems already, and should just trust the dumb luck that kept you alive thus far.

A handgun in "the muddy field" is a last ditch weapon, like a knife.. which is how they are actually used in the field.

In a "muddy field/combat situation".. unless you are part of a military team, your glock will most likely be found in the hand of your bullet riddled corpse, thanks to the range of rifles, or the spread of a shotgun.

( sure cops use 'em.. but they aren't even trained to shoot them, evidenced by the plethora of reports of cops emptying their clips at every chance.. so their feedback is useless).

Ive never been a GLOCK fan.
Plastic+gun just sounds like an oxymoron.
and handgus are IMHO pure secondary weapons if nothing else due to their inaccuratcy at distances.

I prefer Mossberg pumps of the 12 guage flavor ( minus the plug), and .223 hollow points for those lond distance relationships.

seizure laws are all around. I would go to this website to look at items for sale by governments which includes seized items from Ohio to cars from Tenn..

Government deals some seized goods included

With this kind of law, If you really wanted to generate big revenue, why not go after some expensive real estate, such as:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20500

Hey! Leave Those Kids Alone: Where Are All of Those Missing Children on Milk Cartons? In the White House... of course!

And let's not forget Craig Spence's late night tours of the White House with his stable of callboy escorts. The June 29, 1989 edition of the Washington Times salacious headline read, "Homosexual Prostitution Probe Ensnares Official of Bush, Reagan; Call Boys Took Midnight Tour of White House.

That would be a good place to start...

Real estate is funny like that. Have proof that it is no longer legally yours and your done with it.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Have you ever stripped, fired, held, or even seen a handgun?

It's much different. The quality of those guns were so low, it wasn't uncommon for the slide to blow right off one of them

While you're probably right, I'm just saying that because something is perceived to be connected to crime, doesn't mean it should be outlawed or confiscated by the government.

I guessing they've never fired anything made after about 1947...

I have a friend like that, he thinks AR15s are a joke and that handgun bullets have to be .45 caliber or larger

Drugs are a problem for us as a can't solve it by these means. It's absurd!

Please don't make such statements on ATS forum as it is as unfair as shooting fish in a barrel - no-one is allowed to debate such a standpoint with you unless they agree with you.
