The TRUTH about pocket handguns
Monday, July 21, 2008
POCKET PISTOLS - "MY PERSONAL OPINIONS"UPDATED - WEDNESDAY - JULY 23, 2008 - my personal opinions are on this commentary...
Part you are looking at below is a;
Breech face of an expensive Seecamp Pistol - They have no eye for attention to quality detail in my opinion. This is a disgrace.
Also called a "magazine disconnector." A device that prevents a pistol from being discharged when the magazine is removed. This item in this photo is very poor at best and I throw away better parts than this. This part was removed by me from a high dollar Seecamp Pistol.
WELCOME TO THE NO BS ZONE OF TEDDY JACOBSON
Its about time I set the record straight on these mouse guns once and for all. The following are my opinions only based on my experience since I was 18 years old and now I am 67 years old. People in the gun industry "DO NOT" like me because I will not lie for them. My loyalty is to you the buying public that uses a pocket handgun for what ever reason, mostly for protection of life and property but in most cases it is not a primary weapon and it never will be.
Most of my work has always been for people that carry a handgun on the job. I never talk about who I work for or what they do in order to keep you and your families safe, I will never go there. It has never been a secret that my primary survival handgun of choice is a 9mm Glock but there are other weapons that must be carried as a secondary or a third handgun for survival, that is just the way it is.
I do not like a 40 caliber handgun but I do carry one because I have done so much to it and I never use it anymore except to carry for an emergency. Getting back to mouse guns I have carried a North American Arms mini revolver in 22 magnum with a 1 5/8 inch barrel in my pocket for at least the last 13 years. I had Wayne Martin of NAA set it up for me with a non fluted cylinder and test fire it. I have no doubt it will never let me down if and when I ever need it. I have total faith in Wayne.
As for Semi Auto pistols made to fit in your pocket, the very best two brands are the KEL-TEC and the NEW RUGER "LCP"....... These pistols fire from a locked breech and they have an ejector, by comparison the high dollar NAA GUARDIAN and the SEECAMP fire by direct blowback and rely on the left lip of the magazine to help eject the casing, this is in my opinion a piss poor design.
I am going to put up some links of the internals of these very expensive mouse guns for you to judge for your self.
The KEL-TEC wholesales for about $220.00 and the RUGER "LCP" wholesales for about the very same, they are both top rated in my opinion. Thousands of people will be reading this because I am going to leave it up on my blogger longer than usual. You want to be sure and buy the second generation KEL-TEC pistols, they even use Chrome Silicon springs. I CAN BUY THREE (3) KEL-TEC "P3AT" pistols chambered in 380 acp for the price of one $800.00+ SEECAMP pistol.
Its not easy to find a RUGER "LCP" at this time because they are heavily back ordered but that will change.
People in the gun industry have used me and taken advantage of my good nature for years but those days are now over. I FORGOT MORE THAN THEY EVER KNEW. I am not here to please their agenda of making more money, I am only here to lay out the truth to you. These people in the gun business do not have to like me, I command a lot of respect and I control sales because I TELL THE TRUTH. I HAVE NO OTHER AGENDA BUT TO HELP THE MAN OR WOMAN THAT NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT TO BUY TO PROTECT THEIR LIFE.
Another pistol that should not be over looked is the BERETTA BOBCAT MODEL 21, chambered in 22 long rifle. IT WOULD BE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE NOT TO OWN ONE OF THESE PISTOLS, think of the cost of ammunition. These "BOBCATS" wholesale for about $250.00 and they are worth their weight in gold as we implode and hard times come closer. NOW WHY WOULD I SPEND EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THESE OTHER PISTOLS WHEN I CAN BUY A VERY DECENT HANDGUN FOR UNDER THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS AND IT WOULD THEN ALLOW ME TO HAVE EXTRA MONEY TO BY 6 EXTRA MAGAZINES.
One of the finest handguns in this world is the "MAKAROV".....They are becoming harder and harder to find so if you own one do not sell it, just buy ammunition, hopefully yours is chambered in 9x18mm caliber.
Another problem handgun is the WALTHER PPK and PPK/S - this is my opinion only. I call them the JAM-O-MATIC... I own a very old one, would I ever carry it for defense of my life ?? = "NEVER" I will let 007 carry his, but its not for me.
I once fired a "BAUER" which was a replica of a baby BROWNING in Stainless Steel and when I fired it the frame cracked in my hand.
I once fired a "STERLING" chambered in 22 long rifle and when I fired it the entire extractor assembly blew out.
I did have a NAA GUARDIAN that was chambered in 25 NAA caliber, I never fired it, I sold the pistol but I kept the ammunition and I have at least 25 brand new boxes of Corbon that I will gladly sell below wholesale cost to any decent person.

IN MY OPINION THE KEL-TEC and THE RUGER "LCP" WHICH WHOLESALE FOR ABOUT $220.00 HAVE FAR BETTER EXTRACTORS ALONE AND BETTER FEED RAMPS THAN THE SEECAMPS AND THE NAA GUARDIANS COSTING THREE TIMES OR MORE. EVEN THE RIFLING AND THE CROWN ARE BETTER IN MY OPINION IN THE KEL-TEC AND THE RUGER "LCP"...
DO NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, EXAMINE ONE OF EACH FOR YOUR SELF, WHAT DO I KNOW I JUST WORK ON THEM. THIS BLOGGER IS SET UP WHERE NO COMMENTS CAN BE MADE, IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT GO TO YOUR FAVORITE FORUM.

Decided to continue some comments that I neglected to tell you about.
Having a pocket pistol it is very imprtant to be able to take it down and clean it each and every time that you use it. The one that is most user (disassembly) friendly is the NAA GUARDIAN but it in my opinion it is very poorly designed. The take down buttom makes it easy to remove the slide. THE QUALITY STOPS WITH THE DISASSEMBLY BUTTON IN MY OPINION.
The KEL-TEC and the RUGER "LCP" are not difficult to disassemble and you can actually use the rim of any 380 acp case for disassembly of the slide to remove the pin. I taper the pin to make re assembly very easy. These are the very two best pocket pistols that money can buy in my opinion regardless of price. The advantage of the "LCP" is that it has a slide lock to hold the slide back that all the others lack. THESE ARE THE TWO BEST BUYS IN AMERICA. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING A POLYMER FRAME.
When you must disassemble the SEECAMP you will need a punch to fit the hole in the slide and it helps to have a third hand, this is BS in my OPINION ONLY.
When Removing the slide of the "NEW" SW WALTHER many that come in here have a serious problem and its a nightmare to remove the slide because it appears that the machining cuts are wrong. I have misery sometimes just getting the slide off these brand new PPK and PPK/S pistols so they must go back to the factory. The SW factory knows all about this problem, whether they would ever admit it or not is another story for another day. THEY ARE BUSY SELLING BAR B Q GRILLS AND MENS COLOGNE AND CHINESE KNIVES AND CHINESE CLOTHING ETC, ETC, ETC. LETS NOT FORGET BILLIARD CUES.
SW 642 WITH CRACKED FRAME - this is revolver "A"
ANOTHER - SW 642 with cracked frame - this is revolver "B" - below
As a general rule a fixed barrel that is attached to the frame is usually very accurate like in the HK P7 M8, (THIS IS THE BEST 9mm ON THE PLANET) - but this does not always work out when there are no sights on an $800.00 SEECAMP PISTOL. Its always been about money, if you ever want to understand what motivates anything in this world, just follow the money trail.
SOME ONE ONCE ASKED "WILLE THE ACTOR SUTTON" THE FAMOUS BANK ROBBER WHY HE ROBS BANKS AND HIS ANSWER WAS BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE THE MONEY IS AT.
Having a nice looking handgun or even a rifle is wonderful, I really like these kind of weapons but in reality IT IS WHAT IS ON THE INSIDE THAT REALLY COUNTS, THE REST IS BS.
PEOPLE HAVE CONTINUED TO ATTACK ME ON FORUMS FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER - THIS IS AN ANSWER TO THEM - THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY FOR THESE WANNNABBBEEEESSSS TO ATTACK ME, I WILL EXPOSE THE NONSENSE YOU PORTRAY ON THE PUBLIC AND I WILL TAKE MONEY OUT OF YOUR POCKET BY TELLING THE BUYING PUBLIC THE TRUTH.
THINK NEXT TIME BEFORE YOU TRY AND THROW ME UNDER THE BUS, BECAUSE IT WILL COST YOU IN $$$$$$ - I AM NOT AFRAID OF YOU.
This hammer was taken out of a very expensive Seecamp pistol - would you want this poor casting in your $800.00 + handgun ??

AMMUNITION CODING - Q & A
Questions & Answers
Will implementation of the ACS technology violate the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution or be considered a “backdoor” gun registration scheme?
No. State and federal legislative proposals to implement ACS would be based upon the existing firearm dealer licensing and gun tracing statutes enacted by Congress in 1968. The United States Supreme Court has, on numerous occasions, affirmed the constitutionality of the licensing and tracing provisions of the current federal law.
Moreover, even the National Rifle Association supports the privacy protections contained in federal gun tracing regulations.
Legislation could be carefully drafted to insure that any information acquired under an ACS program could not be used to single out gun owners or function as a gun registration scheme. When a bullet or cartridge case is recovered at a crime scene, only duly authorized law enforcement agencies would have access to ACS bullet coding information. The ACS “trace” would be completed using the same proven methods used by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies today in conducting crime gun traces. Only minimal personal identifying information is necessary to make ACS technology work (less personal information than is disclosed under normal circumstances by a person making a purchase by credit card or check).
Not easily. It would require considerable skill and knowledge for a criminal to circumvent the ACS technology. A person with the right knowledge, skill and equipment could cast and load their own ammunition. Similarly, a person could disassemble a coded bullet, file off the ACS codes and reassemble the component parts. However, criminals are not known for their advance planning skills. As an example, fingerprint technology is easy to defeat simply by wearing gloves, but that does not mean the police no longer dust for fingerprints at crime scenes. Most criminals don’t wear gloves; similarly most will not take the time nor do they have the knowledge or equipment to defeat ACS.
Currently, most ammunition manufacturers use bar coding to track ammunition inventories. By incorporating ACS data in the bar code, manufacturers will easily be able to identify and track ammunition sales. Using simple and inexpensive bar code scanning equipment retailers will not be over burdened recording the necessary tracking information. Estimates reveal that a useful and reliable ammunition tracing system can be economically implemented and maintained.
Not only will ACS technology assist the law enforcement community in the investigation of serious firearm related crime, but ACS can prove to be a valuable tool in crime gun reduction strategies where early intervention may actually prevent more serious crime.
Consider the following, a drive by shooting that does not result in injuries or deaths yet bullets and shell casings are left behind; or firearm vandalism where property may be destroyed or damaged. ACS would prove to be a very useful and effective tool in preventing future crimes by apprehending those individuals responsible before a more serious crime is committed.
All too often, federal and state fish and game investigators discover disturbing evidence of illegal poaching. The evidence, most often, is only the carcass of a rare or endangered animal or bird. By using ACS to trace recovered ballistic evidence, fish and game authorities will be able to make serious headway in preventing future violations.
Homeland security is not just a national concern but has now become a top priority of our state and local authorities. ACS technology could prove to be a valuable tool in tracing connections between potential terrorists and their suppliers.
ACS technology does not require any special training or equipment for law enforcement to use other than a good magnifying glass. Recovery of the bullet code does not require any special training or skills, and it is not subjective. There is no requirement to purchase expensive computer imaging equipment, and data can be stored using current data storage methods. ACS information obtained by law enforcement will be up to date and readily useful.
Ballistic fingerprinting technology is expensive to implement and maintain. Maryland spent $1.8 million just to acquire the hardware necessary for the Maryland system, while New York spent even more. Estimates for California, which has a much larger firearm market than Maryland and New York were cost prohibitive.
Special skill and training is required to interpret ballistic signatures left on fired bullets and cartridge cases. Today, only a relatively small crime gun database of ballistic images exists. Millions of reference samples of expended bullets and cartridge cases would have to be imaged stored and maintained at government expense. Experts question the value to law enforcement of expending millions of tax dollars on this promising but unproven technology.
