Federal review stalled after finding forensic errors by FBI lab unit spanned two decades

U.S. officials began the inquiry after The Washington Post reported two years ago that flawed forensic evidence involving microscopic hair matches might have led to the convictions of hundreds of potentially innocent people. Most of those defendants never were told of the problems in their cases.

FIREARM ACCESSORIES / FS in TX - 3 Beretta Magazine Loaders
« on: July 29, 2014, 10:57:07 PM »
Any interest at all in 3 Beretta Beretta Magazine loaders? They've come with a few Berettas I have owned over the years - I forget what models.

They will work with any 9mm Beretta magazine - and more than likely, an 40 caliber one as well.

Worth $6 for all three + actual postage? IF you only want one, contact me as well... But, I'd rather just sell them all at one time...

Please email me at [email protected] and the first "I'll take it" with an exchange of information gets it.

sold pending funds!

Do like Ship and sell what ain't nailed down. ;)

Sho buff. Got a few things pending - just waiting on the paypals... I think by tomorrow - I am outta stuff to sell. Everything else is nailed down  :th_thicon_lol:

Now, I am just drawing a dollar here and there with the rest of those CDs on EBAY. I've made probably $800 on CD sales on ebay (I had many that was never on that list I posted on the forum - I knew some out of print ones were worth some bucks)

The little red dots you cn't mount on them look cool. But I understand they get dirty by the ejection port very fast

Some of the gun shows have some funny military style patched for sale...

I'm official. 

When I posted that image a while back - you did say you were gonna order one  :th_thicon_lol:

How about $10 + shipping for all remaining items?

Actually - as many years as I've seen this exact topic - I remember some type of measurements being thrown around. Adding that much width to each side of the entire slide would make it much heavier too.

Face it - there will never be a 45 caliber Beretta 92. As for the desert eagle comparison - people are not dragging that around in mass either.

It's not the grip width that is the issue - but the thickness and width of the slide. No other 45 ACP is as wide as the 92 would have to be to make it work - according to the company.

Its been stated many times by the company that the gun would be way too wide to work with a locking block design and the larger caliber 45 ACP. That's why they have never done it. They claim the slide width would be huge.

Army buys more M9 pistols

The U.S. Army may is trying to replace the M9 9mm pistol, but its still buying new Berettas.

Beretta Defense Technologies announced today that the Army will spend a quarter million dollars worth of additional M9 pistols from Beretta U.S.A. Corp, according to a press release from the Beretta.

None of my weapon lights are using rechargeable batteries.  They are all either on the SureFires I bought from you, or Streamlight brand batteries.  I like rechargeable flashlights, but not removing and recharging batteries.  Just a preference.

Well, something like a TRL 1 has the batteries side by side. So, you can't use an 18650 anyway.

Unless I play with the light a lot, I leave my 123 cells in for about a year. I then will use my battery tester. When cells are in a light one by one on top of each other, one tends to discharge, and the other can overcharge. So, if I see one of the pair at a lower level - I swap them.

I do not remember if this happens on the TRLs with the batteries side by side.

If they both show the same level and it's 80% or higher, I leave them.

The lithium 123 batteries themselves, loose and not in a device least many years.
