So, after some gentle reflection I've come to an interesting conclusion.
I'm capable of stunning displays of arrogance and egotism. So much so that it's even surprising to me, and I KNOW how big...
If we go by the numbers an NAA Mini-mag with no training behind it will do just fine 99% of the time. Anyone who spends more than one of those and the cost of a box of ammo is wasting their money.
Bill and I have a special relationship, I just ask and he takes the Godzilla action figures right out of the box for me.
I don't think he's trying to drag you into anything man, you're just kind of being a dick, an uninformed one at that.
Anyway, everyone enjoy their weekend.
There's so much wrong with that statement that it's almost depressing to me. Anyway, I'm gonna get back to my internet radio program, I've got more guns to "test".
Mr. Butler at one point or another worked with/for SAI, depending on who you ask.
I would take whatever one says about the other with a VERY large grain of salt.
I was at Vogel's house last week, directly speaking to him about Salient at one point, unless I'm going crazy, I stand by my original statement.
There is a long standing and relatively well known...
The Vogel bit is absolutely not true. I'd be curious as to where you heard that.
What I don't understand...
Why does it make everyone so mad that they make money? Is it that they make too much money? If you don't like their prices then don't buy one?
As far as performance...
On a customer supplied gun or? They're still not cheap.
Oddly the parts that all the people who've not shot them say are "unnecessary" are the parts that I think offer the biggest performance...
I already know you want one. Goober. ;)
That exact gun down to the awesome trigger, $1,000 or thereabouts.
Out of curiosity...how many of you would buy one if they were only $1,000 including the base gun?
The principals involved are dealing with some personal issues that honestly, are probably more important. :-/
They're only overpriced to the people not willing to pay for them, if that makes sense. I will say my opinion on them has changed significantly compared to what it was before the MK25 project.
Full disclosure, I have a pretty good relationship with Salient. That having been said...
There is a NOTICEABLE improvement with their guns compared to the stock ones...
My bet is they used hot-lights for the photos, and the orange ring took enough of a charge to glow. ::shrug::
My money is on a G40, 10mm long-slide with external dimensions carried over from the G41.
I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Personally.
You asked a question, you got a pretty consistent answer from people who usually disagree like it was there job. Good luck to you.
And I'm suddenly reminded why I don't participate here nearly as much as I use to.
I've bought almost ten belts from VGW. GREAT company.
But you were shooting it SOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN THE 1911 that was there... ;)
In all seriousness, this gun is turning into the nicest SFA gun I've ever handled. I'll have a detailed report after I...
