I think we need a smiley for "primal scream of rage".

Probably replace these fine pistols with Glocks just as Britain did.

The US Park Service cops and the PRNJ SP melted down their P7s too - it's just what socialists do. History is a liability to them and they'll always be happy to spend more of your money for no good reason.

This is so sad...

"Committed to the safe disposal of firearms"

That just burns me up. If they sold them to collectors down here and got say $500/per for ex-canadian service pistols, that's $9.5 mil (USD) saved from a smelter and that much less tax dollars pissed away on another stupid ass decision.

It is both sad and stupid. They are fine pistols and their value has gone up significantly in recent years. I have one and am glad that I do but I hate to see other gun collectors and shooters denied the opportunity to own one.

Sick, liberal mutha-effers! Those who fear an armed public probably have reason to fear an armed public.

Totally stupid. A cash generator just sitting there and they would rather spend money destroying history..............and a fine pistol at that. I'm going to keep mine............and the buttstock, too.

I've been buying Inglises as they come up for the right price.
They are still out there for reasonable every now and then.

I've bought them from people who think they're a cheap Browning HipOwer knock off :biggrin::biggrin::blackgrin::blackgrin::blackgrin ::whistling::whistling:

The best I did was 350.00 about a year ago for a nice fixed sight version.

My shooter is unrestored and in the past two years, I've probably put 5K rounds through it. It just never, ever, ever gives the slightest hint of a problem. Just basic 115gr FMJ Luger and it eats it up like lunch.

Reading this headline makes me sick to my stomach.

And much less "smelter pollution" for the greenies up there in Canuckland.

A real shame its like taking books and burning them in a bon-fire.

When one considers the history, development and use of these firearms its not only a real tragedy but an affront to the sensibilities of Canadian Taxpayers. I'm certain that many in Canada think they currently pay too much in taxes. Clearly this is a waste of Taxpayer dollars at its finest.

Truly sux.
The Inglis is a Canadian legend.
It's truly battle tested with an almost constant combat history from WW2 onwards.

Canucks are justifiably proud of their rich military history. I can't help think if they really knew about the Inglis as we do, they'd raise a stink so high the .gov would have no choice but to listen.

Think about the numbers...and ask why does the Government wastes so much of the Taxpayers hard earned dollar?

That's really too bad. The one I have is a great shooter although it is not much for looks. The internals are perfect which seems to indicate it was carried a lot but not shot very much. I have noticed the asking price for these things climbing in recent years and would expect them to go even higher with what the Canadians are going to do with them.

I guess if they export them to the US they would be arming an already dangerous populace...:biggrin:

You don't think like a .gov bureaucrat, and your mental health is the better for it!

But understand that to most of the Marxists involved, it's not even about the "ee-vul guns" angle (although some wimminz with a "degree" in Public Policy :rolleyes: IS pushing that manure cart--bet on it), it's about the make-work and increase-MY-budget angles.

Still, the only two questions to be asked of ALL the guilty anti-citizen Marxists is "blindfold? cigarette?" :devil:

Surely I can't be the only one who appreciates the irony of anti-gunners executed by FIRING SQUAD. :)
