The Downside to Tactical

Linoge has an excellent post on what I am calling the downside to tactical. He takes a look at a CZ750 that is striking fear into the hearts of non-gunnys and then he strips away the new tactical-hotness to see what remains. You might be surprised.

And I do think the CZ750 looks dang sexy.

  1. On the flip side, certain "tacticool" stuff can actually prove to be useful, like this particular situation turned out to be - having one model of a firearm with all of the "scare" features, and one wood-and-blued-steel model sitting right next to each other, and being able to honestly say that those are functionally identical firearms can do a world of good for dispelling the myth that aesthetic features significantly impact the deadliness of a firearm.

    Of course, the audience has to be willing to learn and pay attention, which leads us to our second problem...
