    They forgot the clicking safety myth (every gun has a safety and they are pressed, clicked and referred to on a regular basis) and the loose-as-a-bag-of-rocks myth. (Guns moving in your hands are so poorly put together that the metal parts clang together)

    I think if I see another picture of actors cocking their semi-autos everytime they are hunting a BG I'll throw up.

    THE BULLET SHOULD BE IN THE CHAMBER ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Movie making libs no nothing about guns and will not learn. (they should "know the enemy")

    The biggest myth is that the person who wrote this article knew what he was talking about. There are more errors in his story, than in the movies.

    First one I found:

    Never true.

    Funnaaaay! So was the 2nd link. Thew author was right about HK and not liking dirty civilians.

    Author must've been a "she", also. There was a reference in there about, "a tortoise beating a hare because when things are faster they suck. Sex is a good example of this." Only a chick would ever say such a thing.

    Good laugh for today though!

    May have a few errors, but the one you pointed out is rather irrelevant to his overall point. And his overall theme is spot on.

    I believe this refers to a California law. IIRC manufacturers DO have to provide guns for drop testing before they can be sold in CA.

    He said GCA 68, which is a federal law. The writer may be a professional writer, but he is obviously a rank amateur gun enthusiast.

    He should stick to subjects he knows, and not what he has heard about on the internet.
