I wonder what happens to the "name brand" stolen guns? Do they get sold to "mostly" law abiding people for their collections, or do they leave them at home so as not to loose their more expensive guns?For what it's worth, in 23 years of full-time LE I have yet to encounter a criminal armed with a legally-purchased firearm. All who were armed were carrying stolen weapons, and exactly none were guns I'd personally want. Usually something along the lines of a Lorcin .380, or a Hi Point something or other. No Glocks, no Berettas, no Rugers. Of course, a gun doesn't have to be a well-known brand to be used in a crime, but you get my point.
+1I disagree with the tiny gun comments. In summer, I carry one of the .380 pocket pistols. In winter, I change to a mini 9x19. I can assure you that If I had to strap on a lot of gear before I left the house, I just wouldn't do it! Carry Small But Carry Always is my motto.
