    This is good. And pretty humorous, to boot. The concept, that is. Selling a gun with the same flashy MTV style as you'd sell, say, a car. An idea whose time has come. Now if we can just get gun ads on TV...

    George Hill's take on it.
    I have to agree. I'd like to see gun ads on TV too, but not ones that give me a headache.:banghead:

    Take away the Techno soundtrack, ditch the super-fast MTV style flash editing, and I'd LOVE to see that kind of detail from all handgun manufacturers!

    Show it to me from the side and show me exactly how long it is overall... sight radius, barrel length, etc. Show it to me from the rear, and show the grip width and the overall height. The one thing that I coulda used beyond that is a shot from the top, and the slide width... Oooh, and maybe a side by side comparison with their full sized models...

    I'm a math man... plus, I gotta see it in full picture detail, not just figures on paper.

    Quite honestly, I didn't like them until I saw the measurements next to the picture... I didn't realize it was that compact. I may actually have to buy one now. But I'll definitely wait for a .40. I won't be needing that "sub-compact tactical light" though.

    Geesh! What is with the flashlight? Oh, I'm sorry, the "tactical light".

    When I watch a gun video, I expect to see it shooting, that would be cool.

    Does anyone remember the video of the guy shooting the full auto Glock? That is a gun video!:D

    It wasn't that bad. It would've been better if they'd shown it shooting.

    I like it. How can you not when you see how dull the average gunmaker's website's are.

    I had a flashback to The Blair Witch Project, as nausea set in...

    Pinky extension?

    A question: Will the mags come with a pinky finger extension or do the standard ones allow for all fingers on the grip? I like having the option of both methods.

    The Beretta 9000s has a really neat flip down extension, but the gun is screwy.

    Who makes the extension for the Glock 26? Does Pearce ring bell?

    Thanks

    Like watching a tennis match with both the contending players at the net beating the ball back and forth... :banghead:

    Replay it several times and vertigo could set in... :D
