A man was shot and killed Tuesday morning by his ex-girlfriend’s brother when he broke into her home, police said.

Yes, an agent of the state must be allowed reasonable discretion when upholding the law. Yes, his purpose was legitimate. Yes, police officers have every right to defend themselves. But when an innocent young man is murdered in his home after all of the officer’s mistakes, it might not be “clearly illegal,” but it appears that something is “clearly” amiss.

If the designers at Springfield Armory had a specific theme in mind when they developed the new 4.5" barrel OSP version of the company's XDM pistol line, it could best be described in a single word: Flexibility. The M in the name indicates a match-grade barrel for improved accuracy. OSP stands for “Optical Sight Pistol,” meaning this gun's slide has been milled and drilled at the factory to make room for a variety of red-dot optics. The factory package reviewed here ships with a Vortex Optics Venom red dot pre-installed.

The enemy drone whined in the distance. The Interceptor, a drone-hunting machine from Silicon Valley startup Airspace Systems, slinked off its launch pad and dashed away in hot pursuit. The hunter twisted through the air to avoid trees, homed in on its target, fired a Kevlar net to capture it, and then carried the rogue drone back to its base like a bald eagle with a kill.
