The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Let me test my own gun geekishness.
That pistol looks like a 1911 with some other modifications besides the paint job.
1911 .45 ACP (Ugly)
There. I fixed it for them.
Come to think of it,
also works. ;)
1911 (Christmas 2007 edition)
Somebody stop me, I'm on a roll!

No, I ain’t tellin’.
Just go look.

There's not a single recreational shooter working at CNN, is there?
Well, one I know of.
... I didn't say he had any editorial control. But he does work there
I do believe that that is an affiliate piece done outside of cnn. Part of what makes cnn interesting is the way cnn and affiliates feed material back and forth.
I don't (yet) own a firearm, but don't Glocks have internal hammers?
What is that thing in the upper left at the back of the slide?
Yep Rob, external hammer.
Good god is that report idiotic. Guns painted in weird colors are frightening? Nope, no agenda here, nothing to see, move along please.
Look folks, you are not going to be able to take them away. Get over it.
My 11 year daughter loves her pink rifle (Cricket .22lr)
When she graduates to centerfire, I have a feeling that some Duracoat is in my future.
I draw the line on my BHP's and Garand however. Some things are sacred! :)
Ya think this "Glock" might be one of the legendary guns that an Xray machine can't see?
Augh! My Eyes!
Glock is the sound I just made, upchucking into the porcelain gawd, after viewing that idiot's report.
Still, the 1911 pictured is also 'bout ugly enough to induce the same reaction......
...........'scuse me, I gotta....!!!!!

Silliest Model 1911 I have ever seen? does it squirt warter too?
It's "frightening to law enforcement"?
What should frighten you is what is can do, not how it looks.
I must admit that I find the 1911 -Christmas Edition (very funny Kevin) to be sickening, I kinda like the girl guns...
No, I don't want one, but if women are more readily drawn to weapons that way I don't care that they are something other than "scary black".
CNN, like the liberal politicians that they support, would never let the facts get in the way of their story. Reading this post is as close as I have been to Communist News Network in years. Even faulted bloggers are more accurate.
"these guns, painted to look like toys, are frightening to law enforcement." But, but I thought having toy guns that looked real was frightening to law enforcement? Isn't that why we had to have a whole bunch of laws mandating toy guns to have orange muzzles, etc?
What's the point of CNN's ninny article? That toy looking guns might give a potential cop killer a one shot advantage? If the media hadn't spent 20 years lambasting police who shot people who pointed fake guns at them, then this wouldn't be an issue would it?
Title: Does anyone at CNN know anything about guns?
Excerpt: From Kevin at Smallest Minority comes this piece of CNN stupidity:
First of all, Glock does not make 1911’s. Secondly, Glocks are almost always black and plastic. A cursory Google or a visit to Glock’s website would show that Glock does...
