A few pertinent ones







Ok, so I laughed at the nature one.
Texas
Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    So... someone just remade a scene from Mr. & Mrs Smith.  With a dumb ending.  Well done though overall... And that gal was cute.

    I liked the Mrs. And Mr. Smith scene remake! Cute female, Beretta 92's, hell I even liked the ending.

    Awesome scene effects and cool all around  :thumbup1.

    Here is one that had me in stitches.

    Her name is Lacy, and she managed a whole belt without a hiccup from an M-249.  Nice back music too, and those jeans are just magic to hide the 1911 barrel tucked down into them.



    If that doesn't add up to awesomeness, then I am disappoint.
