No such thing as knock down power,
only knock down accuracy

I sent an e-mail via the website, as I didn't see anything about the lifetime warranty...

I've always liked this guys reviews. But, have you ever seen him review a gun and say it was a total piece of sh@t? I wish he and others like him, would do follow up reviews at about 500 rounds. During that time they could break down the guns and identify potential ware issues, or any problems that may have occurred during the initial break in period. This could also document the manufactures warranty policies, and customer service if he had to use them.

I have also noticed that all his reviews seem to be positive. One explantion could be that he only posts reviews of firearms that he likes to help save him time. It does take production time to record and post reviews.

On the other hand, maybe he's never seen a gun he didn't like....lol

I read the Gunblast review and found it interesting. I have read his reviews where he gives the feel that "this is a decent gun, but.....". This review didn't have that feeling. It was uniformly positive, IMHO.

Having said that, I take all gun reviews with a grain of salt.

I read one review where the test pistol suffered a catastrophic failure and would not function at all (as opposed to a FTE). That equated to a total 100% fail rate. They got a 2nd pistol from the manufacturer and completed their test without other issues. So based on the sample size in the review that pistol suffered a 50% critical fail rate. They gave the pistol a glowing review.

Was that a fair review?
Is a single pistol (or two) given to a journalist for a review a realistic sample?

IMHO, reviews have their place but are more of a marketing tool than indicator of the quality or usefulness of a particular gun.

GV...... I could not agree more. I like the reviews that compare and rank several weapons at the same time, and same basic price point. These reviews often identify different features that one brand may offer over another. Additionally, if a range test is performed a single shooter can evaluate all of the firearms trigger pulls, recoil and accuracy. I read a really good review a while back comparing the Keltec P3-A, Taurus TCP, Ruger LCP and the Sccy MPX3.

A SCCY MPX3? Really? I thought that was a vapor pistol (never really existed in the real world).

You disappoint me, trying to sneak in a vapor pistol. Not even a water pistol.
