On Guns

Maxim Popenker, who runs an excellent military firearms reference site, has just added a page on civilian firearms.

His first choices are interesting to say the least.

1 Seems like a fairly natural selection, largely driven by the U.S. market. Kel-Tec is not big in export market, but SU-16 is great, if the user understands the weapon. Basically, don't unfold the handguard ever (it moves your point of aim/hit). The finish on SU-16 is very rough. For example, the trigger guard often has injection molding gourd. However, the action is made well and fit well. It's kind of like StG.43 on 1944 manufacture :-) I keep thinking about getting one, especially since I saw the CA model.

2 I've heard good things about theKel Tec weapons aside from rough finish. I wasn't suggesting that the guns he chose were lacking merit, just that they were interesting and not as commonly covered as some, which is a feature, not a bug.
