Revolver Instructors Class
Safari's 1911-ALS Safari's new ALS family of holsters is a true quantum leap in holster design.  I personally own and use the 6378 and have recommended the 6300's to my students.  However, after testing the 6365-53 (1911 specific) I find there is a problem getting on the ejection port release system i.e. the ALS. To accommodate the 1911 left side thumb safety, Safari has placed a fence around the safety which unfortunately gets in the way and slows down the draw.  Removing the fence solves the problem, however, it potentially creates another!  After releasing the ALS, my thumb would keep moving rearward.  This rearward motion would hit the thumb safety moving it to the off position, pistol still in the holster, on its way up and out. Depending on your teaching protocol this may or may not be a problem.  Some instructors have their students remove the thumb safety in this manner others say no, do not remove the safe until the pistol has rotated and is indexed on the target.  Regardless of protocol, the fence is in the way and slows you down.  As always, "Trust but verify!"  If Safari were to make the releasing lever higher/longer, it may solve the problem with the fence and negate its removal.  We all know if you modify the holster and you have an A.D, Safari's response will be, "Oh Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Remington   Announces New R-51 Pistol
“The mechanism of the model 51 is unique and only used in one handgun and that’s the model 51.” Having a stationary barrel and recoil spring surrounding the barrel should give the R-51 very go to exceptional accuracy out of the box. It’s unique feature is the locking breech block within the slide. “When the pistol is in battery, the breech block rests slightly forward of the locking shoulder in the frame. When the cartridge is fired, the bolt and slide move together a short distance rearward powered by the energy of the cartridge as in a standard blowback system. When the breech block contacts the locking shoulder, it stops, locking the breech. The slide continues rearward with the momentum it acquired initially. This allows chamber pressure to drop to safe levels while the breech is locked and the cartridge slightly extracted. Once the bullet leaves the barrel and pressure drops, and the continuing motion of the slide lifts the breech block from its locking recess through a cam arrangement, continuing the operating cycle.” Can’t wait to get one to shoot and will give it a good onceover at the Shot Show in January!!  Will have more to say about the R-51 when I get back. Please see attached video which will give cycle or operation! AS ALWAYS; SLACK OUT FAST, AND PRESS SLOWLY UNTIL YOU GET A SURPRISED SHOT!!!!
This video is of a Glock 22 (gen 3) The problem is a broken left rear rail and firing pin push by! As the pistol is twisted, which happens many times when holstering, or sitting in a vehicle, the stricker slips of the cruciform, (which holds it to the rear), flying forward. At this point the striker should be stopped by the firing pin block!  However, it pushes by the block; striking the primer of the cartridge causing the pistol to fire!!! It's my understanding the officer was getting into his vehicle when the pistol fired causing injury to his right leg. Please take the time to check your pistol to insure it is in good working order and there is no problems with rail integrity and the firing pin block!!!!  AS ALWAYS; STAY SAFE OUT THERE!
