I'm curious, who here actually uses the slide stop as a slide release and who just racks the slide? I rack the slide, mostly because I pretty much always shoot with gloves and on some guns it can be...

What do you find wrong with the decocker on the P220s? Is it the specific design or you just don't like a decocker only as a "safety"? I carried a P226 and realy liked it, however I would concede...

Technically the first wonder nine is the VP70 in 1970, but that is such a werid gun it is kind of on the border. I think that the Beretta is also slightly beaten out by the CZ-75.

The term "Wonder Nine" came about when they started being adopted by police departments as a more modern replacement for the .38/.357 revolvers they tended to use at the time. A revolver can fire...

Maybe it is just my apathy towards 1911s, but I would have never considered the Colt from Heat to be an iconic gun. I suppose it is sort of distinctive as it is "custom", but all that it has is just...

I wonder if they are really still trying to make HKey a thing, or if the actual adopted gun will be different. The L85A3 was in service for less than 3 years before they started replacing the HKey...

If you are using it for hunting, double rifles are still a pretty big thing as they allow you an immediate follow up shot as quick as you can pull the trigger. This is especially important if you are...

I think it is a Blow/EKOL P29 blank firer. It is kind of a Beretta 84 with a SIG P229 slide. Here (http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/EKOL_series#EKOL_P29) is the page for it.

How do you mean, with the firing pin somehow being hit forward with the lower already detached? It should be exactly as drop safe as when fully assembled, and supposedly ARs are drop safe-ish due to...

To me it would kind of depend if there is a difference in the weapons used. If the new page would just be a clone of the other with a different aspect ratio, then it would not be worth it. However if...

I imagine that the reason they name dropped Rainbow Six is that they have already said that this is going to be the sequel.

Pretty sure the person claiming the 655 was a carbine rather than a sniper is wrong. Their description of the "655 carbine" seems to match the 651. Lots of other places list the 655 as this sniper...

On a 2nd look, I don't think it is a Starlight mount as I think you can see through the hole in the carry handle where the clamp would be. I think the scope is off of an M1C so is probably a bodged...

I don't think that this is a flat top as you can just about make out the front vertical post of the carry handle. To me it looks more like the scope is mounted offset on the left side of the carry...

Apparently they also justified it that the Haenel had 7% better penetration. To me this sounds made up as they would have been using the same ammo out of the same barrel length so I don't get exactly...

From looking at their sites it appears that it is straight to dvd/streaming so it is not eligible if we are classing it as a "film".
