"The World's Greatest Hockey Tape" Fine. But doesn't say what hockey
tape is. Looks like rolls of tape to me. Not much call for it in South

I'm certainly no autority, but I use a high grip, with my thumb riding on the thumb safety, and pressure from the web of my hand, actually activates a grip safety, rather than depressing it, wich in any gun with a functioning grip safety prevents it from firing, unless I deliberately shift my grip on the gun. This is unacceptable to me. I have all my grip safeties deactivated. As for the lawyer thing, they're going to find some way to paint me as the villan anyway, that's just what they do. Our system of government is geared toward punishing surfs who defend themselves rather than relying on the government to do it for us. Making us more dependant, is how politicians gain and keep their power over us, and anything that reduces their power over us, by reducing our dependance on them, will always be the greater crime in their eyes, they would much prefer we simply suffer or die, at the hands of a criminal, waiting for them to defend us, than have the ability to defend ourselves. So they will always do whatever they can, to punish this behavior.

My Trojan 5 has the grip safety pinned for the reasons Sawbones said. It was pinned by the man I bought it from and he said he would pin it for the same reasons Sawbones said as well.
In Oz though it isnt a legal issue. I dont know of the implications if it was done in the USA.

Can someone post a picture of their *PINNED* beavertail? I know how it's done and I have my own ideas, however, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Electricians plastic tape

I knew an old guy who always taped his grip safeties and left the end doubled over about 1/4" so he could untape it before the lawyers got there!
Of course I wouldn't do it. 'cause I'm only 65!!
