Guns I Hate Part 2.5: Externalities of The Derp Tier

As I’ve mentioned before in this slow running series, singular anecdotes of individual guns failing or working well aren’t demonstrative in of themselves, but my observations at this month’s 2-gun match reminded me of something I had forgotten to bring up. In my squad of a baker’s dozen shooters, the Springfield Inc XD was well […]

There’s More Stuff To Watch On Youtube!
