Are your personal attacks, name-calling, rudeness and aggressiveness appropriate for this forum?

LAPD SWAT uses the Benelli M1, which is NOT gas operated. It uses a proprietary inertia recoil...

The .25 may very well be the absolute worst mouse gun cartridge of them all. Its monumental failures as a self-defense round have been thoroughly documented.

If you intend to buy soon, go for the Kimber Ultra Carry. If you're going to wait and save up more money, I recommend the Kimber Ultra CDP.

For those who don't currently own any guns, and can only afford one, you really can't go wrong with a .45 ACP semi-auto pistol like the 1911 or Springfield XD.

I'd recommend something in 5.56X45mm from DPMS Panther Arms. Excellent quality at a reasonable price:
