It's just another 'back door' gun control (read elimination) tactic by the Bamaberg coalition. A gun that needs a "watch" to fire. Brilliant...It will go nowhere...but the idea of it will remind people it's"time" to buy real guns that fire by squeezing the trigger.... Speaking of squeezing...SWHC shorts probably got a slew of margin call letters in today's mail...
Smart gun technology is THE MOST idiotic idea every floated unless you're a progressive slime ball with a hard on for disarming law abiding citizens and protecting your precious criminals chosen profession. The idiots that came up with this fantasy obviously never had the coherent thought of a life and death situation where a LEO needed to use another LEO's weapon to prevent himself from being killed.
Smart guns are for stupid people who feel the need to be victims.
BTW .. your VZ post on T ? ... their cust ser. may not be any.better - I've had many issues (6 yrs) that you have to catch them on to get small refunds.
I didn't sign up for "text" but was receiving them anyway, but never returning any.
It took a while to realize I was being charged for them. They explained "it was a courtesy" to let them thru .. yet charged me (go figure ?)
Other problems started when I signed up for their "One Bill Plan" due to 3 accounts. That was a big mess
It may be more of a reception issue that decides it. That and the fact T screwed me over on the 4s warranty coverage. The salesperson totally forgot to tell me there was a $250 deductible. I found that out when the on/off switch on my 4S failed. My contract is up now... I'll do some checking. Thanks for the input.
I was deleting some older saved e-mail news clips - I ran across one about the "CA. Teachers Union 401-K's" warning them ... "Do You Know What Investments Stocks Are In Your 401-K" , it was about Smith & Wesson investments in some of their plans .. (so funny :-}
Yep, if it ain't "hands-on 100% mechanical", I don't want it - as a matter of fact I just picked up a (C&R) CZ52 in nice condition (7.62 X 25). Are you familiar with those necked down Rifle/Pistol Cartridges :-)
BTW, please forgive one of those thumbs-downs from the T board, your leanings hadn't been posted at that time - (I'm holding T & VZ)
