Not all, but at least a couple of them are. The Smith & Wesson 5906 is the one from "Collateral" that MPM2008 photographed for our use. The Glock 22 is also one of MPM's guns.

It's not surprising, since a lot of our pics will come up in a standard Google Images search, often near the top of the search results. That doesn't make it any less distressing to see.

And it looks like they're not even correct. If the picture in the article below is correct, it looks like it's a Springfield XDm rather than a S&W 5906 (I'm not sure how they get the two mixed up.)

I recommend using Archive.is (formerly know as archive.today) for articles like this. It stops them from changing it and claiming it never happened, as well as denying them clicks (which allows them to profit off the stolen images).
