- When I was 18 or 19, I thought the coolest pistol in the world was the VP70z, because it had an "18 shot clip".
- Since there wasn't much difference in Top Secret between 9mm and .45, I knew that the Luger was obviously a much better pistol than the 1911, because it had a "bigger clip". Plus, it looked tough.
- One time, back when I still knew everything, I was standing in the gun store on whose showcases I routinely left noseprints, and I interrupted a conversation between a customer and the counter guy to correct the customer on some trivial datum or terminology regarding SMG's and "silencers", only to be coldly informed that the customer in question worked down the road at Sionics and I should shut my piehole.
In retrospect, it would have been nice to have something as cool as Counterstrike to blame for my damnfoolishness.
