A man has got to know his limitations. What drives me crazy about many gun reviews is how the shooter doesn’t realize his or her own. Consider this common observation about a gun’s “accuracy.”
“I DECIDED TO TEST THE ACCURACY OF THIS PISTOL BY USING A TWO-HAND STANCE AND SHOOTING GROUPS AT A TARGET 25 YARDS DOWN RANGE.”
Guess what? That’s doesn’t tell me Jack Diddley Squat about the gun. What it does tell me, and not very scientifically at that, is how good the shooter’s eyes are, how well they can hold, the quality of their trigger press, or maybe that they like to brag about their shooting skill. It doesn’t tell me anything because any combination of those factors in varying proportions could be contributing to the end “accuracy” result, whatever that may be. The one certainty is that it tells me absolutely nothing about the gun itself and it’s mechanical ability to shoot small groups.
