Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default The ZIGANA T 9mm automatic pistol

The ZIGANA T is a double-action semi automatic pistol chambered in 9mm and is said to be very accurate and easy to filed strip and maintain etc. I was thinking it would be a great service pistol if a .45ACP variant was manufactured. Has anyone here ever came to use one of these?.

CUE: 9mm vs .45 debate.

CUE: There are plenty of other pistols out there which have been proven extremely reliable in real world scenarios vs some mystery-brand firearm debate.

WTF?

My first question would be whether it has a U.S. style safety or a bass-ackwards Euro safety? Does that red dot exposed mean it is on "fire" or that thumbing the safety down to the red dot is "fire"? If something like that isn't obvious, even to the L.C.D., it does not make for a good service pistol. Add that to the list...

Even as a private weapon, as Jmiro states it looks like a knock-off of the CZ 75 family. That design, thanks to Cold War era Communists not believing in evil capitalist notions like filing patents, is basically public domain. So anyone who wants to can just go ahead and make them. Which is way better than having to pay engineers to actually design something new. But why buy an imitation when the original is pretty cheap anyway?

"Trabzon Gun Industry" of Turkey also offers an M1911, which I believe someone is importing, or at least threatening to import .
