gun reviews
 
You know I have ran into so many people referring to Gunblast reviews as gospel. I am sure Jeff is an upstanding guy and he is very knowledgable. But I am a little leary about a person that never gives bad reviews, well not that I have seen yet. Does anyone else get the feeling that well how should we put it. Gunblast is "positively influenced" for its reviews. Or do you think it is the fear of the manufacturers backlash that bad reviews aren't given?

Actually, I have quit relying on gun reviews altogether. I will read them to learn what I can about function, finish, grouping, etc. but I dont rely on their information to make a purchase decision. Maybe it is because I am cynical about advertizing dollars and what those dollars can buy but I have always felt the money influences two things, 1. WHAT gets reviewed. 2. The level of praise in the review.
