    Apparently you don't understand the benefits of an enhanced firing pin spring. :tooth:
    That's all I got.

    You know the difference between a pickpocket and a peeping tom?




    A pickpocket snatches watches....................
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    $6K for the watch ... you'd think they'd be able to have experts who wouldn't try to fire a 9mm out of a .45acp :tooth:

    A new version of the Gyrojet pistol, maybe?? :uhm::uhm::uhm:
    A double action revolver is a semiauto firearm. It fires once for every trigger pull.

    If you go further into the site you will see that there is a pseudo "back of the cartridge" on the back of the watch. Makes more sense, but not much...lol

    I was once given an explanation by a advertising illustrator / photographer, why that type of illustration is used (Albeit Incorrectly), as opposed to an actual photo of a bullet in flight , it is for the benefit of those people who might not recognize a bullet in flight.

    I thought the explanation lacked something.

    Yet another case of pandering to the lowest common denominator...talk about "dumbing down" ...geez...

    Well, been in the advertising business close to 3 decades, lot's of folks in it are very talented when it comes to getting out of a hole, it is all about "selling" after all!

    Another thing, with very few exceptions, there are illustrators and there are photographers, those that do both or more cannot do so without the aid of a computer and software a 12 year old can master, they are what the industry is now full of, bottom feeders...

    I call them the "Costco photographers" they buy either their Canon or Nikon SLR kit, get a pirated copy of photoshop and there they go!
    If this post is non welcomed, I can always give you a recipe for making "tostones".
