    can't wait until someone makes a T-rex handgun. That'd be great.

    Maybe someone can clear this up for me: why don't they make guns shaped like T's instead of L's? The recoil wouldn't flip the gun up and out of your hand if the force were centered in the middle of the grip instead of up above the grip. I know the triggering and loading would be more complicated, but at least shit like this wouldn't happen.

    I would assume the gun in the vid is a .600nitro, which, I think, packs more of a whallop than the .577 Trex.

    Unless of course the Trex is loaded hotter or something. :dunno:

    Recoil would still make it flip, yo.

    Uh, I think you need to brush up on your physics a little bit :ugh:.

    I see what you're getting at....

    Look at Olympic-type air and .22 target pistols. They're off the same principle.
    Except that instead of being shaped like a T, they're shaped more like a horizontal question mark (?)

    They're designed, yes, to reduce muzzle "flip" and enhance accuracy...but they're single-shot pistols that shoot very low-power projectiles. If they were chambered in a decent center-fire cartridge, they'd probably have problems...and probably still be single-shot, unless you want to seriously unbalance the thing.

    Yeah, a question mark shape works just as well. I didn't know they already did something like that.

    Don't get me wrong, there's an elegant simplicity to having the firing chamber at the top of the grip and having the magazine plug into the inside of the grip, but it does pose some problems having the force not emanating from the gun's center of mass.

    Okay, I exaggerated the question mark shape, I though I remembered it being more pronounced

    ...but look how the thumb rest is in line with the barrel, so that the bore axis is almost aligned with the bones in your forearm when firing...and by "almost" I mean "it would be if you didn't have to raise it up to eye level so you can see the sights"

    If you want a good example of the question mark analogy, look up the free pistol that Steyr use to make. It is an interesting gun, both looking and to shoot. Also you can look at the TOZ 35M (just like mine) or the Morini and still get the question mark appearance.

    Oh and btw, her stance needs work.

    The free pistol is pretty interesting looking.

    I probably shouldn't say so, but it amuses me that certain people jumped on my ass about how I need to learn physics and all that shit, and oh look, the gun companies (who presumably know something about physics) make exactly the kind of gun I was talking about. It's almost like I didn't sleep through the physics with calculus that I had to take in order to get my engineering degree. And so I say, booyah.

    I have no doubt that those single-shot pistols could be redesigned to accept a curved magazine that wraps under the handgrip and plugs into the firing chamber in front of the thumbrest. If I had machining equipment at my disposal, I wouldn't hesitate to try to make one, but I just don't have the time, skill, or tools to do it right.

    yes, they make it, but what has been the most common pistol design for the last 100 years? (hint: its not a "T" shape")

    deuse, you're a fucking dumbass. It's impractical except for use in a VERY SMALL and SPECIALIZED situation.
