    here's the letter

    I read Volume 5, Issue 45 of the BDP and I have to ask, do you have a fact checker?
    Read the following line from article "Police Special Unit Accused of Improper Search and Detention" by Matthew Artz:
    "Within seconds, Tweedie said, a team of five SEU officers had battered down her door, shoved her to the kitchen floor and pointed their M-40 carbine guns at her. "
    M-40 Carbine guns? who makes up this stuff. Either the SEU had MP-5 submachine guns or they had M-4 carbines . They did not however have "M-40 (sic) carbine guns (sic)". That makes about as much sense as calling a particular car a "Mazda rx-70 car automobile".

    Just so you'd know,

    M-40 Carbine?

    Whats that? A shortened M40A1 7.62mm Sniper Rifle?

    A Steyr M40 with stock?

    Isn't there an AK variant called an M40?

    I bet they really meant M4 but its more proof that most "journalists" don't know s*** from shinola. :rolleyes:

    I wonder if it's a gun that shoots carbines?

    Rats, only one number off from the M41A1 Pulse Rifle:
    They're probably on requisition and have to make due with the obsolete M40 Carbine Guns until the real firepower arrives :rolleyes:

    Ya know, of all the things in that little news blurb to get angry about, screwing up the names of the guns is pretty much dead last on the list.

    good point justin. fortunatly berkeley has copwatch and is pretty anti-JBT. The carbine gun thing was just kind of a pet peeve (calling magazines clips etc.)

    Tsk tsk Zundfolge... That there's a short barrelled rifle now...

    Better be careful or you'll get your own JBT visit.
