Welcome back to the Denny Ducet Channel – Here we are once again to discuss the decision or “permission” granted by an elite US military unit to acquire / or employ the Glock 19 as their sidearm of choice. \r
This is not breaking news as many of you are likely already well aware of this development, where the Marine special operations units are moving towards the Glock 19 in place of the Colt 1911as their sidearm. Last year we briefly touched on the news of the Navy Seals also making a move away from a mainstay pistol – the SIG P226 to the Glock 19. Domestically many other agencies have also made similar pistol acquisition decisions. \r
Before we get into the discussion, lets us all realize we are all on the same team – firearms enthusiasts, sportsmen and women, shooters, and countrymen. There is really no reason to adopt a vitriolic or contentious stance when it comes to firearm or caliber discussions. So lets keep it civil. \r
Over the past few years of writing some articles and putting out a few videos – I have covered the future of the 1911, the Glock 19 being an ideal pistol, and my admiration of the SIG P226. The wonderful thing about pistols – is you can own more than one. With experience, training, and time on the gun – opinions tend to evolve over time as we observe strengths and shortcomings while employing different firearm designs. As any of you who know me are aware – I was once anti Glock and 1911 or bust. \r
Well it seems to be circulating widely that indeed the Marines have made a move to the Glock 19. From what I have read the reasons for this decision mirror those of the Navy Seals in their similar decision. A smaller, lighter platform that is capable of carrying a larger magazine capacity – and of course the supposed budget savings. As any are aware – after the FBI studies and various other papers and expert opinions offered in the modern era – 9mm has been found to be plenty sufficient as a self defense – secondary weapons caliber choice. \r
If you have been part of this channel for any length of time you likely recognize the 1911 here. The pistol I have qualified with and carried for duty for over 10 years. I was literally raised on the 1911. The 1911 will always have a dear place with me. The slender frame, ideal grip angle (for me that is), consistent crisp near perfect triggers, rat hole capable accuracy, genius of design as well as historic and iconic status – the 1911 is a very capable sidearm for self defense. It is no wonder that the pistol still competes on the MainStage over 100 years after its debut. \r
All of its glory aside, it is no wonder that the Marines have made this move. Platform consistency among elite units who often find themselves working side by side in remote hostile regions would benefit from having pistols that share parts and have identical function and caliber. Any fan of a 1911 knows that the parts are often uniquely tuned to each individual pistol by trained and competent gunsmiths. The bushing fit, the extror – the inner workings of a 1911 are like a finely crafted watch. Precise – but difficult to do on ones own or without proper training. The Glock on the other hand is a mass produced pistol lacking any requirement for fine gunsmithing or tuning. You can take 100 GLock 19s, disassemble them to each individual part, dump them in a sack, poor them out, randomly reassemble – and each G19 will work as designed. This is not the case with the 1911. \r
With the consistency, and now proven 30+ year service record of the Glock platform as well as its proven service – being extensively used by elite US military units during the last decade and a half of conflict, this decision was merely awaiting official status and should come as no surprise. With NSN numbers already assigned, Green Berets, SEALs, CIA operators and others already carrying the Glock – the move of the Marines to go in this direction is not only a natural one but wise. \r
The Glock 19 is an ideal choice, a reliable, accurate and durable choice. Congratulations Glock for another line to add into the resume of Glock Perfection – and Colt I salute you and thank you for your century of service.\r

Israeli forces have killed dozens of Palestinians protesting at the Gaza border against the opening of the new U.S. embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.
The bloody clashes are said to be the deadliest in four years.
Ro Aram reports.
Palestinian health officials say 58 people were killed Monday and just under three thousand others are said to have been injured.
The assault came as a U.S. delegation, including President Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, was attending a ceremony to officially open the new U.S. embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.
The move, announced by President Trump last year after recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, has infuriated Palestinians, who see East Jerusalem as their capital of a future state.
It also drew global criticism for jeopardizing a possible peace deal between the two regional rivals.
Palestinians, led by Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas, have been protesting along the Gaza border for weeks in what has been dubbed as the “Great March of Return.”
These demonstrations have resulted in casualties, but Monday’s incident was the deadliest clash since the 2014 Gaza war.
The Palestinian envoy to the UN condemned the Israeli assault and demanded action on the conflict in the West Bank.
“…….These war crimes need to be dealt with by the Security Council and the international appropriate legal system to bring those criminals to justice because the Palestinian people should not be the exception to the rule.”
Other nations, including Britain and France, have called for restraint from the Israelis, while Turkey called it a “massacre.”
However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted his military’s actions were an act of self-defense of his country’s borders.’
Israel’s military claims it was responding to protestors throwing Molotov cocktails, burned tires, and stones at Israeli soldiers.
The White House also backed his claims by blaming Hamas for the bloodshed.
“…….The responsibility for these tragic deaths rests squarely with Hamas. Hamas is intentionally and cynically provoking this response. And as the Secretary of State said, Israel has the right to defend itself.”

Russia’s Defense Capabilities in 2018
War weary and under financial pressure, Russia’s defence and security policy will remain assertive in 2018, but there will also be a greater degree of risk aversion.
Author: Pavel Luzin
Sky high defense spending, as if in preparation for a major war, is depleting Russia. In 2018, Moscow will face the question of how long this can endure. Although the authoritarian regime has not been prepared (so far) to up the ante even further, it cannot significantly cut this type of expenditure either, mostly for domestic political reasons. So far it has also failed to overburden the West with confrontation and newly created problems.
Consequently, the Kremlin will try to create more problems for the West in the coming year while avoiding any excessive waste of its main resources; there will be a reluctance when it comes to taking on too many further foreign policy responsibilities, but the Kremlin will endeavour to remain unrestrained in its assertive actions abroad for as long as possible.
At the same time, the general inefficiency of the Russian political and economic system makes further self-isolation of Russia and the development of semi-military governance methods the most likely outcome.
The limit to financing
By 2017, Moscow reached the limits of its defense spending: in 2016, it spent 5.67 trillion rubles ($84.6 billion at an average annual exchange rate) or 6.59 percent of GDP. It is important that Russia’s cumulative defense expenditure should be estimated based on two items of the federal budget – “National defense” (3.77 trillion rubles/ $56.3 billion) and “National security and law enforcement” (1.9 trillion rubles/ $28.3 billion). It is noteworthy that 800 billion rubles earmarked for “National defense” was used to repay debts owed by Russian defense companies.
The trick is that the Russian military doctrine and national security strategy actually encompasses external and internal threats. What is more, not only the armed forces but also divisions of the National Guard of the Russian Federation (Rosgvardia), Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB), Ministry of Emergency Situations and Ministry of Internal Affairs participated in military exercises “Zapad-2017” (West-2017). In other words, all the Russian siloviki are incorporated into the system of domestic and international military planning. Hence, the necessity to inflate the level of funds earmarked for security agencies arises.
On the whole, the 2016 level can be considered an aberration, largely stemming from the high level of inefficiency of the Russian military industry. It comes as no surprise that Russian defense spending apparently shrank to around 5 trillion rubles in 2017. Of this sum, approximately 3 trillion rubles has been earmarked for “National defense” and almost 2 trillion rubles – for “National security and law enforcement”. In 2018, these limits will generally be maintained (classified expenditure included): t
