For today’s PUBG post, we have the Glock 18! As you may know, I’m not a huge Glock fan, but this gun is pretty cool. It’s a full auto pistol chambered in 9mm that was designed between 1979-82 and has been in service from then until present. To make it quick, imagine a Glock but full auto. For those more interested in the details, the Glock 18 is a select fire variant of the G17. The G18 was specifically designed by request of the Austrian Counter-terrorist Force called EKO Cobra. Being designed and produced in 1986, the pistol has served several police and military organizations for decades now. The original model had serious muzzle rise issues, which lead to the creation of detachable shoulder stocks and compensated models (18C) as an attempt to remedy this issue. Somewhat surprisingly, Glock is oddly secretive about these pistols- they don’t feature them on their website. To find one of these in the civilian market is really hard, but certainly possible (I know a few people with them). Since the gun was made in 1986, very very few are legally transferable if they were made before May 19th of that year. For now, the only legal way to get your hands on one of these guns is being a Class III dealer with a demo letter, being a military/police organization, or buying post dealer samples (dealers only). The ones for dealers sell for roughly $2k, but brand new ones for law enforcement/military will only run about $550. Civilian prices are next to impossible to track since so few are legally transferable that they almost never appear for sale. For now, just buy a Glock 17 for a few hundred dollars and work on that trigger finger? As always, thank you for reading, double tap and follow for these types of posts almost daily, and I hope you’ve enjoyed!
The day of days. Around this time, 203 years ago, today, Lord Uxbridge let loose the 2nd Union Brigade of Cavalry and the 1st Household Brigade against the advancing French columns from the ridge of Mont St Jean at a critical moment of the Battle of Waterloo. Over 3500 of 'the finest cavalry in Europe' swept downhill into the French with devastating effect. The Scots Greys famously captured two Eagle Standards from Napoleon's regiments that day. This 'Sapper' represents the Mounted Troop of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and the Eagle trophy.

Wow! I am blown away by the amazing @thebunkerlabs team and all of the work this team is doing across the nation for veteran entrepreneurs.
This week, city leaders from across 23 cities came together in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. to double down on the Bunker Labs mission. We are proud to announce our 3-year strategy to expand to all 50 states and the Bunker Labs new leadership team. I am honored and humbled to lead the Western Region alongside Jake Tozier and these amazing city leaders who are leading from the front in the Bay Area, LA, Seattle, and Bozeman, Montana.

Que buen servicio hacen nuestros compañeros de la Guardia Real. Los 365 dias del año pero especialmente en verano con este calor de la capital. Un abrazo para ellos. 🇪🇸

El WASP, formado por mujeres provenientes de la sociedad civil, se dedicaba a volar los aviones desde las factorías hasta su punto de destino para liberar a sus compañeros masculinos de estas tareas y no desperdiciar pilotos para el combate.
El presidente Obama firmó una ley que otorgaba la Medalla de Honor del Congreso a todas las WASP. La Medalla de Honor es la condecoración militar personal más alta y más prestigiosa de los Estados Unidos de América. Se otorga para reconocer a aquellos miembros de las fuerzas armadas de los Estados Unidos que se distinguieron por actos de valor. 🔻🔺🔻🔺🔻🔺🔻🔺🔻🔺🔻🔺
