Some real hand-held power
These target pistols are dead sexy. Actually, the Remington XP-100 is an absurdly powerful bolt-action pistol which shoots an unusual kind of ammunition called the .221 Remington Fireball.
Uh. I don't know yet. I'm working on that.
The TV show Elementary -- I like it but what is up with all the dialog? It's all muddy -- like un-EQ'ed body mics. The dearth of upper mids in the 4kHz region and the emphasis in the 500Hz region make the dialog unintelligible. Those problems don't seem to affect the music, just the dialog tracks.
Plus they let faces get too dark.
It is both visually and aurally muddy. Why?
I think the airsoft versions of those XP-100's cost more than the guns (which are no longer manufactured) cost used.
