'We're on the eve of World War III'
Ex-Mossad chief urges West to unite, warns of Muslims imposing ideology

JERUSALEM – Global civilization is on the verge of "World War III," a massive conflict in which the Islamic world will attempt to impose its ideology on Western nations, according to Meir Amit, a former director of Israel's Mossad intelligence agency.
Amit, one of the most esteemed figures in the international defense establishment, warned Islamic nations and global Islamist groups will continue launching "all kinds of attacks" against Western states. He urged the international community to immediately unite and coordinate a strategy to fight against the "Islamic war."
"We are on the eve of war with the Islamic world, which will wage a war and all kinds of actions and attacks against the Western world. We already noticed the terrorists in the world hit Spain, England, France. I call it World War III. You must look at it from this angle and treat it wider, not as a problem of terrorism here and there," said Amit, speaking during an exclusive interview with WND's Aaron Klein and ABC Radio's John Batchelor broadcast on Batchelor's national program, for which Klein serves as a co-host. (Listen to the Amit interview.)
Amit served as Mossad chief from 1963 to 1968. He directed some of the most notorious Mossad operations during that time and pioneered many of the tactics currently used by intelligence agencies worldwide. The subject of multiple books and movies, Amit is routinely described as a "living legend." Now in his mid-80s, Amit serves as chairman of Israel's Center for Special Studies.
The former intelligence chief referenced recent terror attacks against Israel, Europe and the United States; Iran's alleged nuclear ambitions; the insurgency in Iraq and Afghanistan; and worldwide Muslim riots.
"It looks to me like it is a kind of coordinated or contemplated problem to somehow impose the Islamic idea all over the world," Amit said.
Israel is routinely attacked by Palestinian terror groups.
Since December 2000, 993 Israelis have been killed. Spain in March 2004 was struck by a series of coordinated bombings on its commuter train system, killing 192 people. London was rocked last July by bombings on its transportation system. France has been the scene of violent Muslim riots and attacks. And on Sept. 11, 2001, 2,986 people were killed when the U.S. was hit with coordinated terror attacks.
Violent Muslim riots erupted last month in the West Bank, Syria and Lebanon after cartoon images of Muhammad were printed in a Danish newspaper.
The riots spread across the Middle East and throughout Europe.
At least 40 people were killed yesterday in a blast north of Mosul in Iraq. Iran and Syria have been accused of aiding the insurgency there and in Afghanistan against U.S. and European troops.
Amit urged Western nations to "unite and work together. Unfortunately, the world is not uniting. China and Russia are problems. This should be taken into consideration."
Both China and Russia have been aiding Iran's nuclear program, which Tehran claims is intended for peaceful purposes only. Russia last month received a delegation of Hamas leaders, and pledged to maintain diplomatic relations with the terror group in spite of efforts by the U.S. and Israel to isolate the newly elected Hamas-led Palestinian government.
Amit said Iran currently poses the most serious threat to the international community.
"The Iranians [are] financing terrorists in Israel and sending money," Amit said. "This is [my country's] immediate problem. But I think the most serious problem is Iran developing nuclear power."
Amit said Israel should not lead a military attack against Iran's suspected nuclear facilities, instead urging support for the course of diplomacy and sanctions.
"The problem of [Iranian] nuclear armaments is not an Israeli problem; it is a worldwide problem. Your question refers to what Israel can do. It shouldn't do anything by itself. It should maybe throw the idea that this is a world problem and all the Western world should unite, join hands and work together," said Amit.
"I am not sure whether a military operation would be the best solution. At least not the first solution. But you can put sanctions on Iran."
With regard to his warnings of a new world war, Amit clarified he was not advocating the international community take measures against all Arab countries:
"I know very well the Arab world. I have many friends in Arab world leaders. Not all of them think the same. They are also split in different groups. ... Although I think they will wage an Islamic war against the Western world, we must take into account they are not one piece. Somehow we must learn the differences between different sections and parts of the Arab world."

The Guardian has no magazine disconnect, has a more easily operable 1911-style magazine release, has admitedly small, but easily upgradable sights, is much easier to take-down for cleaning, is designed to reliably fire ALL 32ACP ammunition, is widely available, and is supported by NAA Customer Service.

I have a .32 Seecamp and a .380 Guardian. I had to return the Guardian to NAA because of a serious failure-to-eject problem. Shipping UPS-Overnight cost over $40.00 (two-day was less than two dollars cheaper). I have yet to hear from NAA about the receipt of the pistol or the fix. I agree with Sandy's assessment of the differences. But in my view, while the Seecamp cost a lot more money when I bought it new, it was reliable from the git-go. Plus, the Seecamp's construction is flawless - cosmetically nicer than the Guardian. If the Guardian worked, cosmetics would be only mildly interesting. But they must work to be useful. sopsax

While I have generally heard good things about Seecamps, Teddy Jacobson, a pistolsmith who has lightened and smoothed the trigger pulls on many of our Guardians without cutting any springs, regards the Guardians as the best built of all the pocket pistols. He claims that the internals of the Seecamp don't match the externals. Other than that, Sandy said it all.

Hi Gary: My two Guardians have been customized. Both have had the NAA carry package done, had Gutter Snipe sights installed, extra slides fitted (without any sights), and were sent to Texas to have Teddy Jacobson do his magic on their actions. Both guns were designed to fire any available 32 and 380 ammo. You just can't do that with the Seecamp. Now, don't get me wrong. I love my Seecamps, and I do intend to buy and carry the Seecamp 380 in the near future (well maybe not the near future), but overall, the Guardian is in my opinion the finest pocket pistol in its class available today. Granted the 32 weighs 2 oz more than the Seecamp, but when I hold both in my hands, I really can't tell the difference. There will always be a market for small light pocket pistols. I've been a strong advocate for NAA to consider building a Seecamp clone (especially the 380), or try and build a
n alloy 380, dropping the weight to under 15 ozs. Recently, Sandy (NAA's president) announced that they are working on a lighter Guardian. Teddy Jacobson, interesting enough, prefers the Guardian to the Seecamp.

The Seecamp is what it is, I would think if someone deciding to buy the SC would be choosing it for the smallest and lightest. But must say, Teddy is entitled to his own opinion, I just wondered at what time period was he referring to.

Hi RJ: This thread started my someone who wondered why one over the other, other than a $60 difference. If I blindfolded you and put one of my Seecamps in one hand and the Guardian in the other, you couldn't tell them apart (except if you stroked the slide and felt the Gutter Snipe sights or felt the Seecamp mag shoe).

Posted on Sunday, April 03, 2005 - 06:33 pm:
Phydeaux88: The failures-to-eject happened randomly - almost every magazine-load - enough to make me NOT want to depend on the thing. I fired 500 rounds through it for break-in purposes, over several trips to the range. I used PMC and Winchester ball ammo (range did not allow anything other than ball). It would occur on any round-number in both magazines - second, fourth, last - it didn't matter. When it happened, the slide drove the empty casing into the edges of the chamber and it often required that I remove the slide to clear the pistol OR use needle-nosed pliers to pry the casing off the sharp edges of the ejection port. I am familiar with pistols - 40 years of law enforcement experience and more than that with pistols. I tried various hand positions, limp wrist, tight wrist, etc. but nothing prevented jams. From what I've read on the NAA site, the ejection system relies on the up-coming round to partially eject the empty, so I suspect both magazines had weak springs. It is at NAA now (seven days, so far). I'll report back when it is fixed (if it is). To say I'm not impressed is an understatement. The concept is good (small, concealable, adequate power) but it must go bang each time the trigger is pulled - mine didn't. All of my other pistols, small, medium and large go bang, including my .32 Seecamp. sopsax

All of my Seecamps and Guardians have worked flawlessly. My 380 Guardian is SN 51, and even it was flawless. Not a single failure, not even once. The Guardian doesn't have an ejector. So a last round stovepipe was within its original design specs.

Posted on Sunday, April 03, 2005 - 07:13 pm:
Georgeh: Yes, I understand about the last round, but when the slide jams the empty casing, open-end first, into the sharp edges of the ejection-port (or with the casing reversed so the open end is jammed into the sharp edges of the slide), forcing the brass to assume the shape of the sharp edges, that makes the empty impossible to extract with the normal jam-clearing techniques. When it jams like that, the pistol is out of action. Mere fingers can't pry the empties (at least in MY .380 Guardian) off those edges. It requires pliers. A stove-pipe on the last round? Okay, but not a metal-reforming jam. I can't believe these pistols were designed to do that. Like I said, I will await the return of the pistol from NAA - and comment about that process when appropriate. sopsax

I have both the G32 and .32 Seecamp in NAA rugs. You (at least I) can easily tell which is which by simply lifting the two rugs. The Seecamp is lighter and it is easy to feel the difference. The Seecamp has never failed to fire while the G32 will not fire a box of 100 without some form of failure. People think the ability to fire any type of .32 is an asset. In fact, not having to worry about rimlock with the Seecamp is an asset. Lastly, the CNC Seecamps can fire almost any of the better performing hollow points. The difference in price is only about $60 now and you can easily eat that up by sending the G32 back to NAA to get it to function correctly. Most dealers in the Dallas/FtWorth area no longer stock the G32 and I know which of the two I carry and trust. However, the G380 is another story. I think the G380 is the best .380 available.

Sopsax Had you by chance installed a hogue slip on grip? I had a similiar experience right after I put one of the Hogue grips on my Guardian. I finally found a very small piece of the grip was interfering with proper seating of the magazine. A little judicious triming of the grip solved the problem. Since that time I have put about 700 rounds thru with out malfunction of any sort.

Hi RJ: I looked it up. The weight difference between the two is 2.5 ozs. I know that there is a weight difference but when I hold them both at the same time the diffference in weight to me is slight. Now, maybe having the gun dehorned and having the Gutter Snipe sight channel machined into the slide shaved off some weight, but it couldn't be very much. I just don't know why we are arguing about the guns. If I didn't like the Seecamp, I wouldn't own three of them. Likewise, if I could have customized the Seecamp, like I had my Guardians, I most likely wouldn't have bought the Guardian in the first place. I carried Seecamps every day for years. I still plan on buying Larry's 380 version. But in real life, I now carry the Guardians, because I like having the Gutter Snipe sights, and I like the ability to feed it whatever is available. Construction wise, both use castings made at the same factory, both are machined using state-of-the-art CNC equipment, and the footprint of each are nearly identical. For me the size of a pistol is more important than its weight. My bitch with the Guardian deals more with the 380. I really think bringing its weight down is important. I also think competition is good for the consumer. Look at what you got in a 1911A1 pistol in 1975 and compare that what you get today. There are far more manufactures of the 1911A1 today than yesterday. Make a Seecamp 380 clone from a forged billet, and even though the weight would increase, its useful life would increase as well. So, my battle cry is compete NAA and Seecamp. Compete...

They stand behind their products. They don't produce guns with a 1000-round lifetime. If you wear your gun out by shooting it too much, it's covered by an NAA lifetime warranty. Try to get that from Seecamp. Why would anybody buy a limited-lifetime Seecamp when you can buy a lifetime-warranted Guardian?

Darvell: I agree - you can't have too many guns (or saxophones!!). Some folks don't buy Seecamps (or Guardians, for that matter) to shoot all the time. I bought my .32 Seecamp (and later, the Guardian) to carry concealed. I ran 200 rounds through the Seecamp (Silvertips), then cleaned it and put it in my pocket. Oh, I shoot it occasionally for the practice, but not a lot of rounds, especially enough to wear it out. And, I bought it before the .380 Guardian hit the market. And, looking back at it, my Seecamp worked right out of the box, not my Guardian. I didn't buy either based solely on their customer support. I'd rather buy a product that does not require customer support. Same with my S&W Sigma .380 - I bought it to carry concealed (before the Seecamp) and while I've shot it enough to break it in, I have not shot it enough to wear it out. None of these pieces (Seecamp, Guardian, Sigma) are for pleasure shooting, so I don't concern myself with longevity. For pleasure-shooting, I have a number of pistols that fit that bill. Like my S&W J-frame .38 revolvers - they caution owners not to use +P ammo, but that's what I carry in mine. Should I have to shoot it someday, I suspect it will get five +P rounds down the barrel okay. Longevity is not the issue. sopsax

I admire and own both the Seecamp and the Guardian. However, if I could own only one, it would be the Guardian. The reason is the Guardian's ease of maintenance. If I am going to be limited to one pocket pistol, I want to be able to carry it in any environment and not be worried about having it fouled by "muck and mud." With practice, you can field strip, clean, and reassemble a Guardian in about one minute -- and in the dark. I've never been able to do that with my Seecamp.

As much as I liked the Guardian, it was simply too heavy for pocket carry for me. I bought some Federal Hydra-Shok at Seecamp's new ammo recommendation, so hopefully, that will go well.

I didn't like how the grip frame is so thin at the barrel end. My Seecamp has functioned flawlessly and being the .380 isn't much a step up in power. The .380 Guardian is for sale on Gunbroker.com.

Hi RJ: I'm glad you like me because few people do! I don't know about the internal maching of the Seecamp. But I do trust Teddy's judgment. As to weight, as to 32 ACP firearms, I agree with you that weight is important. Look at how many Kel Tec's are sold. But when you look at the Seecamp verses the Guardian, the weight difference isn't that great. But the 380, now that is different. There is a significant weight difference between the Seecamp and Guardian. In that case, weight is one of the reasons that I am going to buy a Seecamp 380 one day. But, even then, if NAA could bake a Seecamp 380 clone from a forged billet instead of a casting, I think I would pick the NAA version due to the increased life the forging would bring.

The internal machining of the CNC Seecamp is fine. I measured both clearances and "straightness of cut" of my Seecamp and G32 and the Seecamp is much better. The Seecamp slide-to-frame fit is perfect while the G32 slide has considerably larger clearances on one side than the other (skewed slide). Several othe
rs on the forum have reported the same situation with the G32 slide rubbing on one side of the frame. No wear marks on the Seecamp after 1500 rounds. Also, my Seecamp had no more than an 8lb trigger new, right out of the box. My G32 must have been pushing 14 lbs. NAA products are carefully thought out and durable. However, the final fit, QC and function are not always good - certainly when you consider the price you are paying. The G32 is a very simple design with relatively few parts (modified Seecamp which is modified CZ) and it should be well executed for the price.

All of my 25 and 32 caliber Seecamps+Guardian have about the same trigger pull out-of-the-box. In fact, the original trigger pull of my G380 was about the same as the Seecamp. But, I had NAA install stronger springs, and that increased the trigger pull to over 14 lbs. That's why the 380 went to Teddy Jacobson. He did so well with the 380, that I then sent him my 32.

Here's a fair comparison: Seecamp vs. NAA .32 Weight: advantage: seecamp - it's lighter, and I can tell in my hands Size: advantage: Seecamp- It's definitely smaller and a bit thinner Sights: Big advantage- NAA- it actually HAS some! mechanicals: NAA- I liek the fact it has less mumbo jumbo (no magazine disconnect). Quality: I'd give a lsight edge to the seecamp- I've taken both apart, and my seecamp has great internals. Value: NAA for certain- it's cheaper and shoots just as well. Ammo selection: NAA for sure- shoot anything you like. The seecamp is limited to shorter JOH rounds only. My assessment favors the NAA. I own a seecamp since I bought it years go before the NAA was easy to get here in CA. I have no problems with the Seecamp I own, but for the price paid, I thinkt heNAA is a better value. Get the Seecamp if you're a rich guy who wants a slick shiny tuxedo pistol. Buy the NAA if you want something with a little better engineering to carry and shoot a lot. Yes, I do have a sharkskin holster to go with my Seecamp ;) -Dave

PS- Kenneth, don't believe for a moment that the .32NAA hits like ANY 9mm. That would take some witchcraft and possibly a faustian deal to accomplish. In fact, the +P loadings in .380 have more measured energy than the .32NAA and make a bigger hole. I've seen gel tests confirming this. The main advantag
es I see in the .32NAA is enhanced feeding (any bottleneck bullet feeds better by design), and less perceived recoil (lighter bullets). So if someone doesn't like the kick of a small .380, the 32NAA is just the ticket. -Dave

In fact, there are no +P or +P+ SAMMI standards for the 380acp. Anything that has +P on it... it's just a name or a marketing ploy.

Txcajun, The "+P" loads in .380 marketed by Cor-bon have a measurably higher muzzle energy than the 'standard' .380 loads offered by, say, Winchester and Federal, so they are "+P" in a sense of being loaded hotter, or to max psecs, maybe. -Dave

The letter "P" represents pressure. Not all calibers have a "P+" loading. Firearm cartridges were designed to operate within a specific peak pressure range. However, older calibers were commonly loaded to an intended lower pressure range. This lower pressure range is commonly referred to as the "standard" pressure range. As manufacturing and materials improved, old calibers were being loaded to a higher pressure range: ergo "P+." The designation was used to alert the consumer that the cartridge should not be used in older guns. Newer calibers generally have no offical "P+" pressure range. There is no industry +P+ designation. That is just marketing; however, when it first appeared, it was used a lot to designate the difference between 9mm pistol vs 9mm SMG ammo. 9mm ammo loaded to NATO standards for SMG use had a peak cartridge pressure that exceeded the max pressure for a 9mm cartridge pistol cartridge. When the "flying ashtray" style of hollow points first came out, they need a certain volocity to expand reliability. But manufacturers were always looking for ways to improve reliability but at pressures safe for older guns. Winchester used a softer guilding metal (Silvertips); deeper scoring (Remington Golden Saber and Winchester Black Talon); big, wide hollow points (Gold Dot). For an ordinary individual worried about personal defense, P+ loadings offer very little. I've carried standard pressure MagSafe Defender cartridges for 15 years now in my pocket guns. But the bottom line: a bullet in the eye is more effective in stopping an individual than a bullet in the thigh.

Their a smaller company does same thing gets 45 230 around 1000fps and not +P That 1050fps came from a PPK/S they used for testing.Thats one reason I like CorBon use real guns for test not some test barrel.

It would be interesting if NAA introduced a spurred hammer for their Guardian line that would allow for a single-action pull. It would make their little pocket pistols exactly like a revolver with less kick and less bulk. The hammer could be rounded as a PPK so that it wouldn't snag. The downside of this, of course, would be that like a revolver it would easily discharge if the hammer were cocked. But, it would still be a nice "option" for those who would benefit with accuracy versus that long, hard pull at the range. Revolvers don’t have safety mechanisms either, and yet most of them have double or single action for the user.

I bought the .32 NAA as soon as it was available, thinking it would be the end all and best for pocket pistol comparison. Over 500 rounds later, even with the bottlenosed design, I had FTF after FTF on each magazine with random numbered rounds jamming up. Bought 3 new mags thinking it would solve the problem, but it didn't. I did not send it back to the factory, b/c I'm not that patient. i traded it in. I now have the SeeCamp LWS .380 and couldn't be happier. Came with 3 mags and two spare recoil springs. no problems with it. And it shoots +P Magsafes just great. To me, it's well worth the $ differential to own the Seecamp. But we all have personal preferences. steelhead

I have sat and read these post on this forum for several months and now feel that I must tell of my own experience with my NAA Guardian 380. I purchased this pistol in June of this year to serve as a concealed pocket piece. I too experienced several mis-feed...mis-ejections while shooting american eagle and remington ammo at the range. I then purchased son Hogue wood grips and installed them. I started holding the pistol more firm in my hand and with an very stiff wrist. The problems decreased greatly but still had some mis-feeds. I then decided to only shoot my defense ammo which is speer gold dot hollow points when shooting this gun and I run both magazines through the gun everytime I go to the range and I then purchase a new box of defense ammo.20 dollars each time I shoot is not too much when my life may depend on it. As a matter of fact this is the only kind of ammo I run through this pistol now. Lets face it this gun was not designed for a target shooting pistol but a easy carry self defense gun. It has never mis-fed or mis-ejected while shooting the defense ammo and I carry it daily so I do trust my life to it! I welcome any questions or comments but this has worked and I no longer feel like I cant trust my Guardian. Try this and you too will be convinced!

I agree TJ has very strong opinions; however, on the subject of handguns I'll defer to his opinion because I won't ever have the knowledge on the subject that he possesses. It takes many many years of hands on "in the trenches" experience to aquire that level of expertise so when he says a particular handgun has a specific defect I have to believe him because I do not have the experience to argue with him. As far as Seecamps go, his biggest criticism seems to be that it is overpriced.

Not even close. The Seecamp is made from 415 stainless steel which is much stronger than the 17-4pH (630 series) stainless steel used by NAA. Seecamp workmanship and quality control are also much better. All guns are thoroughly tested to ensure they are completely reliable before being shipped, many by Larry himself. If you have questions, go to the Seecamp forum and Larry will be happy to answer all of your questions.

NAA customer service is great, but when I buy guns, I expect them to work period. I don't expect to have to ever send a firearm back to have something tweaked on it to get it to quit FTE/FTFing. I read a lot of BS about "polishing feed ramps" and believe if this will solve problems then the manufacturer should polish the feed ramps before selling them. An excellent gun maker would really never need a customer service department, because all of their guns would work like Glocks.

Like I've posted before, unlike my NAA.380 (later fixed by NAA), my Seecamp .32 was flawless from the day I bought it new-in-box. It has gone BANG every time I squeezed the trigger. I am not an employee of Seecamp. As far as Glocks not having any faults, LAPD has recently pulled all Glock 21 models (I think that is a .45ACP) because of numerous failures to fire. I have yet to hear the insight on that issue, but will soon. I have two Glocks (both .40S&W) and they've worked fine. sopsax

Hi Guys, Well as a response to your messages yes I do give you Seacamps are better finished. Which is relative to price, but as far as dependability the guardians rule I have taken the time since you posted the responses to compare guns side by side (trip to gun shop) and yes there is a difference as far as Finnish but for simplicity in maintenance and as well as reliability I believe Guardians are way more Friendly also Guardians will eat all ammo another plus now to be fair I never shot a Seacamp but the Gun Shop Guy Said the recoil was better on the NAA. And I do also believe that NAA is Way more inventive as far as new cartridges and designs another plus and in time will step up internal finishes even in the raw the NAA’s I think go bang more often than seacamp’s which like certain ammo. And with their .25NAA and .32Naa and now in the works the 32 H&R Magnum. The future looks a lot more exciting at NAA I do respect your opinions but when I buy and I will soon buy another back up Gun 4 my wife, it will be from NAA I think that say it all as far as I’m concerned. PS: I have owned the 32acp was indeed a great gun was replaced with a .25NAA bottleneck which is being upgraded right now but buddy this 25 kicks A%# the recoil on the .25NAA you can shoot all day if you can afford it I have tested it by shooting at different objects hits harder than a 32 ACP and Penetrates further and I was shooting a 4 inch 32 Walther PPK.

I own 3 Seecamps and 2 Guardians. None of them have had any problems. All of them were flawless. There are benefits and liabilities to each design. Seecamp was designed to be the smallest and lightest all steel 32 and 380 made. The Guardian was intended to be suitable for customization, allowing each firearm to be tailored to the needs of each individual. There is a price difference. Seecamp is more than the Guardian. There is a "stuff" difference too. If you buy a Seecamp 32 you get the gun with one mag. The Guardian 32 comes with two mags, a pouch, and a lock. There are design diferences too. The biggest difference are sights. You need an empty case and a punch to field strip a Seecamp. With a Guardian, you push a button. That all said. I still want to buy a Seecamp 380. But I also want to buy two, maybe three of the future NAA top break 32 mini revolver. Bottom line: I have no complaints about any Seecamp of NAA product or either manufacturer. I am not employed by either company. I do not manufacturer or sell any firearm related product. As to holsters, I pitch Ron Graham products because I like them. I think they are the best--period. Over the years I have purchased over 50 products from him. You disagree--fine. Buy whatever you want. You guys want a flame war--go for it. I love it when others make an ass out of themselves.

Hi Rhedley, FINALLY we are on the same page. YES Larry Seecamp offeded a apology for not responding to customers who had warranty issues. I SAID THAT 21 POSTS AGO. Glad you finally realize this. NO I did not, nor will I,accept his apology. I waited 2 years, and spent $700.00 for a gun that was crap. A simple 'I'am sorry' don't cut it. ANY machine can have a problem. A reputiable company, like N.A.A. will fix the problem. Seecamp chose to ignore those who allready spent money with them. YES I will continue to tell this story when the Seecamp vs. Guardian comes up. When Seecamp was the 'only girl in town' they could get away with this type of fraud. Now that the Guardian is kicking their ass they seem to want a 'second chance.'If he wants forgiveness he can read the Bible. If he wants to sell guns he needs to clean his act up. Kevin

She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and sure enough, she opens the door and finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, now she's angry! She opens her purse to take out the gun but as she does so, she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and points to her head. The boyfriend yells, "No, honey, don't do it!!" "Shut up," she says, "You're next." ok it that don't do ya here A large family were going to have Thanks Giving dinner togther. The two grandma's of the family were sick of people eating the pudding the night before, so they hatched a plan. They put BB Gun pellets in the pudding so they could see who ate it. The next morning, Little Tommy came down from his room and said "Grannie, Grannie, there were BBGun pellets in my pee pee last night." Then Little Sally came down and said "Grandma, there was BB Gun pellets in my pee last night." Then Big Shaun came down yelling "Help! Help! I just shot my girlfriend in the mouth. She went down fine but came up with a hole going right through her tongue and out the side of her mouth!"

Hi folks, I don't think anyone will be able to dig up any negative comments I've ever made about the NAA Guardian even though it is a competitor of ours. Competition is good. If there were one perfect gun for everyone there would be no gun magazines and there would be nothing for us gun folk to talk about. Competition increases sales for the individual competitors. No one would be interested in watching football if they didn't think at least two teams had the chance to win the superbowl. Competition is good. It's healthy. It encourages consumer satisfaction. It encourages innovation. I've never badmouthed NAA or Kel Tec, and I've never heard of the owners of those companies badmouthing anything we do. I'm posting here for the first and hopefully only time because Kevin Quinlan has made charges on THR and NAA forums that I hope he'll repeat over at seecamp.com so we can discuss the charges and I can respond. I may just plead guilty to everything once I've heard his case. Kevin has been invited but never taken up the offer. Read the link at http://seecamp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl/YaBB.pl?board=MYTH;action=display;num=1133798170 I apologize for intruding. NAA is a good company that makes wonderful guns I'm sure shooters are proud to own. I'm not here to put down NAA. I' just like to be able to respond to the Quinlan charges and this is not the site to do it. Come on over and post, Kevin.

Hi Larry, I really don't think the term "charges" that you use to describe my situation with your company is accurate. "Charges" are something that are unsubstianciated. On Octobet 15th, 2005 at thehighroad, you state "I'm sure whatever experiences you had at the time are as described accurately and I owe you an apology" You further state" The only thing that disturbs me, and I by no means intend to imply that you did this in any of your posts, is for folks to infer that whatever poor customer service we had eight or ten years ago was the result of a customer be damned attitude.............Because the office is understaffed some calls go neglected, and so it goes with everything else. I would have been pissed if I were a customer during some of those days." Actually it looks like we AGREE with my statement about the phones, and lack of warranty work. The real kicker is that you continued to make, and sell NEW pistols but didn't have the time for your existing customers. On the few occasions I have had issues with my Guardians the phone is answered by a very professional young lady on the first ring, and she connects me to Carl, in the service department, who is THE BEST. The fact that you are still in business would indicate that you have learned a few things from the competition. Kevin

Well let me just jump in here with both feet. 1st of all I don't work for anyone but myself, I don't sell guns, and I don't repair them. Also I Am one of those people that back in the early 90's sent in an order form to get on the waiting list for a Seecamp and never heard anything back. Yes a few letters and faxes went unanswered as well. For a long time I hated the company but loved the guns. Then I found the Seecamp home page/forum and was skeptical because of my experience. I lurked for a while and found Larry to be extremely responsive to questions, comments, suggestions etc. Now Kevin I am going to say that many of your comments strike me as dishonest, and I think you are just Seecamp bashing because you had experiences similar to mine. You state you left messages on the Seecamp machine. No you didn't. I know because I called that friggin machine dozens of times (and sent faxes to it) and it has NEVER taken messages (it said so in the recording). You state you paid $700 after waiting 2 years. The only people that paid above retail were those who didn't want to wait 2 or so years and bought them from people who had them, thereby circumventing the long wait. Why would you wait two years and then still pay scalper prices? Also in your last post "charges" are not "something that are unsubstianciated.(sic)" There are substanciated charges, and unsubstanciated charges. Larry simply invited you over to his forum to hammer out what is what. You haven't done so, and I think that is because an airing out of the facts will expose your dishonesty. Above all you seem to be unable to let go of your anger and see things as they are now. Does Seecamp as a company desrve some censure for having bad customer service in the past...yes. If someone cleans up their act should we continue to judge them on the way things used to be, or do we congratulate them for learning from their mistakes and improving? I think unless you are willing to head on over to the Seecamp forum and lay it all on the table it is a reasonable assumption that you are lying, and simply have an axe to grind. Whattya say? GHEN

Mrs. Seecamp...that's actually pretty funny "touche". A search of many online forums in this genre will show I have a long posting history as GHEN. I was drawn to this forum specifically because of this thread. The issues Larry doesn't dispute are the customer service issues, not the specific issues I pointed out. Those still ring as non-factual. I cannot fault you for attacking my character, as I certainly have attacked yours. My response is that I will only state things that are facts, and that I can either: A) Back up, or B): Leave for others to verify with all of the information. You seem unwilling to do either...so I say again (the sound of a gauntlet being thrown is appropriate here) go to the Seecamp forum and post your detailed history, and see what happens.

Hi Ghen,(or Mrs. Seecamp) My situation is as described. Larry offered a apology for this. He would not have done this if it were not true. He may be a bigger person than I, but I don't think a apology does it. I, and many others were screwed. HE made the decission to ignore his existing customers, and concentrate on making more pistols, rather than fixing those with problems. There was a time when there was a two year wait for Seecamps. Not now. There is a reason for that. I am also on 5-6 other firearm sites. This is only the second time I have recounted this story, and in BOTH cases someone else brought the Guardian vs Seecamp issue up. I really don't see a reason to continue this discussion so I will give you, and your friend, the final word. Kevin

In the FWIW department Kevin mentioned that the serial number of his pistol was 0275XX. We did find a record for this pistol since he sent in his warranty card with the last two numbers filled in. The pistol had a dealer price at the time of $275.00. The suggested retail was $339. It was shipped on 1-4-96 to a gun store in Illinois. Mr. Quinlan bought the pistol from a dealer in Indiana on 5-31-96, about five months later. Our records show the pistol has never been returned here for repair, so the shooter to whom Kevin sold the gun apparently did not experience any problems. It might have been the ammo or it could have been limp wristing that caused the problem. :-) We have never refused to do warranty work. My apology is for the speed with which the work was done. We did the best we could but were very strapped for manpower both in the shop and the office. Although we officially have a one year warranty, the fact is that we have yet to bill anyone for parts or labor on any repair work we have done during the entire time we've been in business. We can document the $275.00 we got for the pistol and the shipping date, etc. It's not our fault KQ paid $700 for the gun. If he waited two years for the pistol five of those months are not attributable to us. North American makes a fine gun and I'm glad KQ has found a company that keeps him happy.

There are two conclusions I've reached; 1) Larry Seecamp is a Class Act. Willing to admit mistakes, respond factually, and be a gentleman. 2) KQ is a spoiled brat. If he goes through life with the same attitude he displayed here I imagine he gets a lot of abuse, deservedly so. Seecamp Vs. Guardian-- both fine guns.

Now that Seecamp has hardcore competition from NAA it appears Seecamp wants to be gracious. Well, we who wanted a quality pocket pistol and did not care to stand in line for 2 years and spend $500-&700 have found it via NAA.

Hmm, I bet Kenneth is actually Kevin's dad! In any event, whether Seecamp's customer service was once bad really has nothing to do with the original question. What needs to be considered is Seecamp's current customer service, as well as NAA's. IMO, both are very good, at least from what I have read on their respective forums.

I bought a NIB Seecamp .380 and did pay around $700 for it. Seems a supply / demand issue to me. It was the first one I've seen for sale in several gunshops in different states. As I am a collector, I had a need for the .380 rather than the $700 I parted with. I made a rational decision for me. Now if someone is making a lot less $ than I do and pays $700 for a "working" gun, they'd better have done their homework. There's a lot of guns out there that are much less expensive, that are more powerful and work reliably for defensive carry. The Seecamp has been worth it. Never had a problem and it's on my ankle now. NAA makes great guns too and often find their way into my pocket(s) for backup / hideout guns. I need to get a small NAA revolver for the collection and want to know if the .17 recoil in that small revolver is much less than the .22 magnum? My dad had an old NAA in .22Mag, and I remember the recoil. Any suggestions? Steelhead PS: Kevin, this is a forum for trading knowledge about firearms, not for personal and company attacks.

I already have 3 Guardians which I am not giving up but I just picked up a .32 Seecamp, I seem to have a thing for tiny guns. The seecamp makes me appreciate even more the Guardian's ease of takedown and reassembly! I was hoping the Seecamp could be a front pocket gun but it sticks up a bit, a longer shirt would cover it. I must say I don't completely get the magazine disconnect. It says not to apply trigger pressure upon magazine removal but, once the mag is completely removed is it then OK to pull the trigger and not destroy the gun? You can leave a round chambered but remove the mag and keep it from being fired but I want to know if you shouldn't go ahead and unload it so someone doesn't mess up the gun? The seecamp seems delicate and I don't want to mess it up.

Hi Nicole: I've been shooting for just over 40 years now. But I've been into pocket guns since only the mid-to-late minis. And like yourself, I am also addicted to small firearms. I own 3 Seecamps. I'm not a big fan of the mag safety. As to the mag release, I don't care. In fact I tend to prefer the Seecamp European style mag shoe instead of a Browning style mag release on small handguns. But I can adapt. I don't know that I would call the Seecamp delicate, but I would call the Guardian more robust. As to field stripping the Seecamp, I would call it a true-pain-in-the-ass. You need an empty case, and a punch. But, on the Guardian, while stripping it is easy, I always find reassembly a pain.

You said, "you finally realize that you spent too much money for a inferior product" but if I understand your complaints correctly, YOU are the one who is mad because you spent too much money for an inferior product. I once over-spent for a Seecamp because I didn't want to wait. Very soon I'm getting a new Seecamp .32 for 400. In both cases I knew/know what I'm doing. Didn't you? Isn't it a bit wearing to be so upset for so long over something that in the final analysis is not that big a deal? You made your mistake. You've spoken your complaint very clearly without amguity. You won't buy a Seecamp again. You're happy with NAA (as am I). For your own sake, man, forget it. Life is too short. Move on. I've re-read this to ensure I've made no personal attack and now I'll post it.
