That pretty much sums it up. I think I looked up his stats here and he has over 8,000 posts and yet has only started 34 discussions of his own.Waterdr. obviously the guys is a troll...Now he is doing it to be an ahole.
Again, he is the quintessential Cliff Claven internet dork.. The know-it-all insufferable troll who HAS to get into arguments over his supreme opinion.
And now he has locked on and will troll you at every turn. Everyone has opinions but he has to ram them down people's throats.
The added lubricity TIN provides is intriguing. I like the idea of being able to just wipe the gun down.For those interested and wish to learn from my successes and mistakes, I took the gun to the range today and as others have reported, the gun did not cycle properly initially. But after a few rounds, worked like a champ. With the TiN coating it cleans very easily. I used no chemicals....just took a cloth and swabs to it. I think the slide was $80 to coat. Depending on how much you shoot, it seems initially to be a good investment. First the slide will look much nicer and I saved a good 20 mins just after one range use. I guess time will tell.
The slide looks great. The barrel and mag extension look a little loud to me but then I'm an older dude.I like it. The top end anyway. Not crazy about the Mag extension though. May just be the picture but it looks like sorta yellow plastic? But to each his own. I have the same vortex venom on my Q5. Good think you didn't gold tin that. That would have been too much!
That’s fair, but I think he’s a ding dong. Problem is, he doesn’t shut up about it.Balance has an incredible range of knowledge and wisdom. Some may not agree with his no nonsense approach toward weapons but ignoring him and what he posts certainly makes your experience here poorer.
The two of us frequently disagree but we respect each other as experts. Look back at our exchanges about RSAs some time.
Quite frankly even Jon Gutmacher (our state legal gun guru) agrees about defending blinged guns...so I think it is something to consider. I did a bit of case law research too (I'm a trustee for the Rupert J Smith Law Library) and it is interesting to note that yes "blinged" weapons can be a factor in testimony.
As to Fart's image...well we've seen some of his shirts so no one should be surprised by his taste in weapon style.
Past all of that, to me Qs are combat weapons. Anything more than TFX Pros and a good RSA is too much...give me matte black... <img src="http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
