Check the first poster in this thread: He loves to crawl on his belly looking for deer, much like a recent presidential candidate. He has a custom rifle. It is a:
"modified kar98k/lee enfield/mosin nagant rifle (enfield bolt action, mosin nagants magazine system, and kar98k caliber and body)"Riiiigght. Then again, who am I to criticize someone who was a sniper in the "Marine Core[sic]"?
Or take this thread at The High Road as a f'rinstance. Several posters attempt to share their opinions on the new MEUSOC pistol. A poster going by the handle of "Pat_Rogers" shows up, attempts to offer a few opinions of his own on the topic, and winds up leaving in disgust. As well he should have, since he wrote the specifications for the pistol in question.
I can empathize.
Newbie1: "What do you guys think of the BlastOMatic 2000?"
Tamara: "Well, the design seems like a good idea, but we've stopped stocking them after having to send eight of the last ten we sold back for warranty work. I'd recommend against buying one, or at least waiting to see if the pending recall solves the problems."
DeAtH aNgEl 007: "Dude, my older brother has one and they ROCK!"
RONIN DragonClaw: "I used one when I was in Force Recon. They issue them to all SOCOM units, but you'll never read about it in the press because it's Black Ops."
Old Cuss: "Heay newbie1! Come over to Blastomatic fan forums! Its' my new EZboard sight!"
DeAtH aNgEl 007: "Dude, all the clerks at my gun store are so stupid! They didn't even kno that BlastOMatic was coming out with a version of the 2000 in 9x25 Dillon! There's been a thread up about that at BlastOMatic Fan Forums for two days now! God! When are they going to hire somebody who knows anything!"
Newbie1: "So, y'all think it's a pretty good gun then? 'Cause I read your posts and ordered one."
Tamara: "Screw this."
And so it goes...
