Yep, regardless of what qualifications this guy *may* have, he's a serious dork.:20000000:Uhhhh, Yeah, he drives me crazy too. On the dragon armor episode did you notice his chicken wings while he was shooting the MP5SD? And he regularly says inaccurate (technically wrong) things. But hey, they regularly have cool stuff on there, to include our favorite weapon systems.
Sure you don't want to usurp the "Throne" instead?I recorded it, finally got the chance to see it.
I really enjoyed the show, but kinda laughed under my breath on how much he hyped it as "the ultimate latest newest top best available"
"More powerful than the M16 & AK47"
what other new WSHTF rifles can you think of that are more advanced or more combat evolved than the little 4.6mm PDW? Did anyone notice they never mensioned the MP5's ?
Anyone else think G36 or the 416 & 417 deserve the thrown?
That's what you called the Hollywood version of Gun control!!I've been involved as a consultant to a couple of local TV and movie production houses and the stupidity is infinite when it comes to weapons and a producer's "vision".
What works in real life is often times not sexy enough so you get things like C-More's on risers on PDW's, and swiss army guns with lights, lasers, disco balls and smoke machines mounted.
The MP7 has similar limitations as the 5.7 and other PDW rounds suffer, they deliver slightly less then carbine performance. If the armor will stop 5.56 or 7.62x39 it will stop the comparable PDW round.I would love to know how the round does against something like the new Dragon skin armour. The greatest role for this weapon to me would apear to be for Executive Protection work. The ability to deploy the weapon withing a vehicle is HUGE. I could see this being a good choice for law enforcement as well. The ability to have reduced recoil yet a round that can defeat body armour and is so easily deployable. I am still concerned with the weapons leathal range. I remember all the hype with the FN round, but everyone soon discovered the round has a limited effective range. Within that range... ouch..
