Your Daily Awesome

From Oleg.

Huh. Looks like I'm not the only one...

It looks like somebody's producing "training" SAPI plates, something I wondered about recently.  Unfortunately, despite being "training" plates, they're still rated for 5.56 and cost $150+ a piece, plus are restricted to LE/Mil sales.  I guess it's a start...

Wisconsin Carry Inc. has joined up with the United States Concealed Carry Association to create, with the goal being Constitutional Carry in Wisconsin.  The sight's pretty new, but there's already 611 signatures on the petition.

It's hard to tell sometimes...

...if some things are serious, or a joke.  It's even worse when the Taurus Judge is involved.

1911 .22lr Conversions

So I'm contemplating a conversion slide deally for the 1911 to get some good cheap training, and the little Walther just doesn't cut it (controls are all in the wrong place and the gun is tiny.)  Anybody have experience with any of the kits out there?  I'd prefer to keep it under $300 or so, otherwise I'd just attempt to track down a GSG1911, but I have yet to see one offered at my usual places.
