Looks like the myth of the ".38 snubby beast from Hell" is slowly being chipped away. Caleb reports Apex Tactical announced a drop in trigger kit to smooth out the little gun's pull-
ETA: Apex Press Release
This thing completely changed the dynamic of the pull on the J-frame, instead of being super heavy and stacking towards the rear, it just rolled straight through with a clean, easy break. It was much more like the trigger on my tuned up 625 than any J-frame trigger I’ve ever seen.Word is they were selling them for $20 at the NRA show, I'd watch for them soon on Apex's site. If it's anything like their M&P parts, it'll be a no-brainer to drop this into your J-frame.
ETA: Apex Press Release
So after a short night's sleep (for some reason I was a bit keyed up after my shift ended at 11...) and some time for reflection on last nights announcement, I'm still giddy as a school boy with a new BMX.
The big thing; a strong reminder to the bad guys that these sheepdogs don't back off. We get your scent, you're going down. It may be a few years, but we don't back down. I can only hope there's some guys holed up in caves losing even more sleep now.
The big thing in my mind, assuming it's really truly him, is what's going to happen with Pakistan. As just about everyone with an ounce of sense has been saying, there's not a snowballs chance in Hell they didn't know he was there at some level. If you needed more proof that Pakistan's military's got issues: This. Is. It. Combine that with the knowledge that he was in a relative mansion, not cramped up in some dank cave, and I know I'm less than happy with Pakistan at the moment.
I also wonder how much notice we gave them about going in, and how much "asking" for permission there was compared to just telling them. Perhaps the prior point weighed heavily on that decision. "You dun' effed up, and we're gonna fix it. So sit down and shut up."
Tactically, this doesn't change a thing. He'd been so busy hiding and so far removed that he was no longer in the approximation of a chain of command they operate with. It is, however, a massive psychological blow to Al Qaeda, and just as massive of a morale boost to our guys and gals if facebook statuses are anything to judge from. Just like I told Cro, keep your heads up (and don't party too much!)
