Yeah, but that mounting only has one spade grip and it doesn't have a trigger on it. I guess the idea there was to give it a better range of motion without a stock to get in the way.

My Zune just played for an hour on what it was saying was an empty battery. I'm sure it would continue playing longer than that, but I had to put it away.

I'm re-reading Unintended Consequences and it is still just as good.

I hate people who think I have to justify myself to them.

Good catch

By George, you have a point all the ones I remember seeing had just the spad grips.

Th guys in our Heavy Truck company preferred them because they had more "umpf" than the SAW but easier for the girls to manage than the M-2.

That gun is kind of a screw up as well, as it lacks the linkage on the left side of the rear of the receiver to operate the trigger from the spade grips. This linkage is an integral part of the little vestigial pistol grip that is found on variants like the M240D, which is removed and replaced with the infantry pistol grip as part of the egress kit. Essentially this means that I don't think you can have a full size pistol grip installed and have functional spade grips, the ones shown above are purely for show. Similarly, the Medal of Honour gun doesn't have the linkage so wouldn't function, hence still a screw up.

I went shooting with my cousin earlier and rented a few guns

S&W M&P9: I shot very well with it, and I really liked it

Taurus PT99AF: Neither I nor my cousin liked it. We couldn't shoot accurately with it at all, and it was having issues with all the ammo we ran through it, and the mag was junk

Question: How much does a Glock 22 cost? I'm planning on buying one when I turn 21.
