So ... not quite sure how to react.

Got to shoot for the first time ever last weekend, a Beretta O/U 12G. I can't exactly remember the model, pretty sure it was a 683.

The one I used is at the back. Maybe someone could help identify them?

And I'm pretty sure I'm about to get banned from the Official 2K Forum. I'm getting sick and tired of people calling game developers "lazy" for stupid little nitpicks and I referred to said people as "condescending, self-entitled little brats."

One of the many things I like about IMFDb is that when somebody's being an asshat, we don't get punished for calling them out on it. So if I should ever start acting like an asshat here (and there's been a few instances in the past where I have, I'll admit), somebody please call me out on it, okay?

It doesn't take much for moderators in any online community to come down hard like that on a regular basis. If the imfdb forum got much more traffic with many more users, you'd eventually see that kind of behaviour sooner rather than later.

I recall about seven (eight?) years ago we had a couple members (now banned) who were causing more than a few waves. We gave them a lot of leeway, but they just kept at it. So they were eventually shut down. But the site has slowed down from that time so everybody can be relaxed. Also we don't seem to have the type of pernicious personalities here that some sites attract. Crossing my fingers it stays that way.

To be fair, it's the WWE portion I frequent and the WWE video games fanbase is notorious for having more condescending, self-entitled assholes than any other.

It's called the Online Disinhibition Effect. Sooner or later we'll be seeing more of that kind of behaviour assuming this forum and website doesn't become a ghost town.

Incivility and antisocial behaviour in online gaming has practically become standard, unfortunately, partly due to the Online Disinhibition Effect mentioned above, and partly because there's no such thing as penalties for Unsportsmanlike Conduct during online gaming, unlike in real-life pro sports matches like at Wimbledon. Even the most famous gaming clans, like Faze Clan, have members who rage online. No one calls anyone out on it, so the behaviour persists.
