Coupla things… I know where "the author" got that 9 X 23mm crud from, 'cause his source was the same moron who tried the same "I'm in the know, the Israelis want the 1911A1 in that chambering and a U.S. Military Special Ops Unit just ordered 5k of them from Colt's" stuff on the 1911-L about five years ago, and left in a late model huff when I pulled his pants down on it. He then started his own Forum, alienated a fair amount of serious people with his sociopathic actions, and still insists that the 9 X 23mm is the wave of the future in auto-pistols.JRWnTN said:I dropped in at GlockTalk, and it appears the author of the article is not exactly standing by his story.
Last November, the same fellow had an article recommending the Marines adopt the 9x23 cartridge for the 1911's carried by certain units.
I missed this before…Fernando said:Now lets be clear on something, there is the Industry Insider and the Industry Outsider, two different sources of industry information. This type of info may have moved over from the Outsider territory to the Insider. Where's Waldo when we need him?
Is this apology the retraction to which you refer, Dean? Or is this apology even more recent?And it must be noted that Crane, having been thoroughly beaten and battered on GlockTalk , has just issued a retraction and half-arsed mea culpa .
Great call by someone. Crane didn't get 2 days, but your source didn't say that he would actually get 2 days, only that Crane was expecting to get 2 days.another chimed in, presciently
Sorry Dean. Looks like my sense of humor went over like a lead balloon. I'm done posting sense I don't get it here. cheers.DeanSpeir said:Pete, your enthusiasm is admirable, but ixnay with anything more like this… ever! I don't usually resort to emoticons, but just so there's no mistaking my meaning here:
FWIW: Cameron was not AH's first Industry Insider. Mas Ayoob introduced it in the second issue (Nov/Dec '76), and a couple of years later, it passed over to Editor Jerry Rakusan.DeanSpeir said:We do need to be clear on this! The Industry Insider was Cameron Hopkins' final page industry report cum bully pulpit in American Handgunner, and I don't know if his successor has carried that forward.
