Judge who blocked California's ban on high-capacity magazines halts their sales for now


Quote
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A federal judge on Friday halted sales of high-capacity ammunition magazines in California, giving state officials a chance to appeal his order last week that allowed their sale for the first time in nearly 20 years.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez barred further sales until the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals considers whether to reinstate the state's ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets.

But the judge said those who bought the extended magazines since his initial order a week ago may keep them without fear of being prosecuted while the appeal proceeds.

Last year, I got a Craft holster for my Walther P99 handgun, and I wrote a review of that particular holster on this very gun forum. Well, I decided to get ANOTHER holster from Craft - this time for my Hk P2000. ( https://www.craftholsters.com ). The P2000 is my main carry gun - it's been my daily carry for over 4 years now.

For this second Craft holster, I got a different holster model - This time I got the Leather Pancake Holster with 2 positions. You can see it listed here: https://www.craftholsters.com/leather-pancake-holster-w-2-carry-positions-p77

I went with a black leather holster for this occasion, instead of brown. And, I must say that the black leather looks great!

I can also report that it really carries very well. I've had the holster for close to two months now, and I really like the retention strap that this model comes with. Plus, the holster holds the gun tightly to your waist so that printing is minimized. I also like the way the holster wraps around the gun with the retention strap, because the strap gives great protection from sweat.

As I mentioned in my other Craft review - it gets super hot down here in Texas for the majority of the year. The strap acts like a sweat guard, and it keeps me from having to wipe the gun down daily (in the summertime). That is very helpful.



I had been previously using a Galco Matrix holster to carry my HK P2000, but it provides no protection from sweat at all. So, it is very nice to have that feature with this Craft Holster, as it was lacking iwth my previous holster.

Once again, the quality and stitching on the holster is very good. And, the holster is available in mahogany (brown) and in black leather. So, two color choices.

I had not really been familiar with Craft Holsters prior to getting my first holster from them last year. But, after I posted my previous review on a few gun forums, it was interesting to see many comments from others stating that they had been buying holsters from Craft for several years. So, it was good to hear that they have many satisfied customers.

I am very happy with the holster - and if anyone else has an HK P2000, you can see the various models they offer here: https://www.craftholsters.com/heckler-koch-p2000-holsters

But, they seem to make holsters for many other manufacturers as well. In fact, I am contemplating ordering a 3rd holster from them soon - for my Beretta PX4 Compact.

School suspends 2 students for sharing photos at gun range. Now the ACLU is helping the students sue the school.



Quote
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit on behalf of two high school students who received suspensions in 2018 for sharing personal photos of themselves at a firing range on social media.

The suspension took place in March 2018 after the students — who have since graduated from the high school in question — shared the pictures in question on Snapchat.

OFFICIAL: US Border Patrol Selects Glock Gen 5 Pistols for Duty Handgun



Quote
A source close to CBP told Tactical Life that “based on the description, they picked the MOS Gen5 Glock in 9mm (models G19, G26 and G47). Tactical Life has since confirmed those models. The duty handgun for all uniformed personnel will be the G19 and/or the G47.

Our source stated further that CBP “is 20,000 agents, so that should make it the second-largest agency in the U.S. to carry Glock (NYPD is No. 1).”

Currently, CBP agents carry HK P2000 handguns chambered in .40 S&W. Prior to the HK, agents fielded Beretta 96D Brigadier pistols in .40 S&W, according to our source.
