    Just got done watching the episode on semi auto pistols and what a freaking joke. Having a supposed "firearms historian" look into the camera and say that the .45 has "stopping power" and how it will stop a 200lb man who is charging you with a single shot to anywhere on the body except maybe the hand was sad. That and watching these guys sitting there with fingers on the triggers while looking down the barrel was hilarious.

    Oh, and it's nice to know the Beretta 9mm is the pinnacle of modern pistol design. :rofl::rofl:

    Ok, I had to turn it off when the guy said that the .32 PPK was "An extremely powerful weapon"

    a lot of the guys are actually spokespeople for the gun companies.. For instance, when they (if im recalling the right episode) talk about a particular gun some guy from the company talks about it.. But of course he is going to talk the product up, thats free airtime...

    The bald fat guy with the wire glasses is pretty good, this was some other series.
