    Apparently you don't understand the benefits of an enhanced firing pin spring.
    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
    Some people are like SLINKIES ... not really good for anything. But they can put a smile on your face when you push'em down stairs

    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 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!
