postheadericon Honor Defense Press Release Regarding Unintended Discharge Of Their Firearms, Offers Upgrades

Not too long ago, a few videos surfaced that showed the user hitting an Honor Defense Honor Guard pistol on the rear of the slide with a rubber mallet, making the firearm discharge. Drop tests were also conducted and at times, the firearm would discharge.

In response, Honor Defense did some investigating and have completed a few upgrades to their pistol line. Take a look at the PR below:

Honor Defense offers Voluntary Upgrade for Honor Guard Pistols

Published Date: 01/18/2017

Gainesville, GA (January 18, 2017) – All Honor Defense pistols meet or exceed industry and U.S.A standards for safety. These include the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) test protocols. Abusive handling (drop tests and jar off tests) have been conducted internally and confirmed by an outside laboratory recognized by the State of California.

Recent events indicate that handling an Honor Guard pistol beyond U.S.A. safety standards by dropping or striking the firearm with a hammer may cause an unintentional discharge. As a result, Honor Defense has developed an upgrade to the Honor Guard striker assembly (within the slide).

To receive the upgrade, go the Honor Defense website and follow the directions outlined in the Honor Guard Upgrade section. Once received, Honor Defense will upgrade your slide unit and promptly return it to you.

This upgrade will provide increased drop performance beyond U.S.A safety standards and is available to all owners of an Honor Guard pistol.

Details of this program will be available on www.honordefense.com on January 21, 2018.

Honor Defense is committed to providing the best single stack pistols for personal protection and using only American craftsmanship and parts for our firearms. Honor Defense pistols have been designed utilizing 100% USA parts, materials with every firearm assembled by Veterans.

Honor Defense is also committed to safety and ensuring we produce the finest possible firearms. For example, in addition to exceeding industry standards, the Honor Guard is designed for disassembly without pulling the trigger, or the use of tools. This is part of the Honor Defense commitment to safety and overcomes one of the major safety issues consumers have with striker-fired firearms. The added feature of a take-down lever eliminates a disassembly activity that could potentially lead to an accidental discharge.

postheadericon Concealed Carriers Stop South Carolina Attempted Murder

If getting angry at a car dealer were a crime, most of us would have been put behind bars long ago. But Alonzo Delunte Seegars took things a little too far at Stateline Dodge in Fort Mill, South Carolina recently when he threatened to kill an employee with a pipe wrench.

Alonzo Seegars, upset with service at Stateline car dealership on Gold Hill Road in Fort Mill on Dec. 21, arrived armed with a pipe wrench, said Aaron Hayes, 16th Circuit assistant solicitor. Seegars told a service employee, “I know who you are and you are a dead man,” then “threatened to kill” a female employee, Hayes said.

Seegars then shouted out ‘Watch this!’ as he smashed at least three vehicles with the pipe wrench, Hayes said.

That’s when a couple of customers who were packing drew their concealed handguns and stopped the attack.

Two customers, whom prosecutors said had legal concealed carry permits and were armed legally at the time, intervened and “held Mr. Seegars at bay” with the handguns at the crowded dealership until police arrived, Hayes said. York County deputies tackled Seegars after using an electric stun gun. Seegars suffered a broken leg in the scuffle.

The best kind of defensive gun use is one in which the trigger isn’t pulled. And even though that’s the kind that happens most often, they’re rarely reported or included in crime statistics. Go figure.

So it’s another case of legally armed citizens stopping a crime in progress…one that could have resulted in grievous bodily harm or even death. That’s pretty much the reason those of us who chose to arm ourselves carry a handgun in the first place. Mission accomplished. Yet again.

One side effect of slower than expected uptake of VR is that virtual reality application developers have been slow to invest in creating content. In this sort of chicken-and-egg cycle, growth tends to be slow, not explosive.

postheadericon Man Shoots At Vehicle Burglar, Gun Confiscated And Future Unknown

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD — A man may well be charged after he decided to open fire on three young men — two juveniles and one adult — who broke into his car in the middle of the night.

Only one of the thieves was wounded, but the vehicle owner was made to surrender his handgun to police. Although that’s not an uncommon occurance with any defensive shooting, whether this shooting was justified is very much in doubt.

As NBC 4 reports:

Officers investigating a report of a theft from a vehicle in the 14000 block of Twig Road in Silver Spring about 3:20 a.m. were flagged down by a man who lives on Rossiter Court. He told police he confronted three people breaking into his car and fired several shots at them… An 18-year-old man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his lower body was taken to a hospital, police said.

Officers determined he was one of the suspects shot at by the Rossiter Court resident. Officers also arrested two male juveniles who are charged, police said.

“Those two juveniles have been charged with theft-related offenses,” Montgomery County Police Officer Rick Goodale said. “The adult has not been charged. Those are still pending.”

The 18-year-old man hasn’t been charged because he is still hospitalized. The man who fired at the suspects surrendered his handgun to police.

“He fired multiple rounds at these suspects for breaking into cars, and you have to be accountable for all of those rounds,” Goodale said. “One of those rounds could have gone through a house and hit an innocent party.”

He has not been charged with a crime. That remains under investigation.

It borders upon ridiculous how often it needs to be clarified — very, very rarely will authorities back you if you shoot someone for breaking into your car if that’s all they do.

If your car is occupied or after confronting the thieves they escalate the situation, it’s another story. Think of it this way — having your car broken into is at the very least a massive inconvenience, and at the very most a costly theft.

It’s an outrage that such a thing could happen to you — I’ve certainly had my car broken into before — but their doing so doesn’t constitute a threat to your life or the loves of others in and of itself.

Be smart and play it safe, folks. The last thing on God’s earth I want to do is write a story about how you wound up in jail because someone decided to charge you for pulling the trigger under murky circumstances.
