I was forced to endure 5 hours of CBS programming last night and they had some show calle CSI on. It is about some group of yuppies who go over crime scenes looking for clues. Anyway there is one scene where in the ballistics lab one guy says "the gun could have only been a .45 cal glock or hk usp". They decide it is a USP based on the # of grooves cut in the bullet and then goes on about the ATF report saying there are only 17 REGISTERED in all of Nevada with 7 being in Clark County. Is this true?

LOL I saw that too. They said that a HK USP.45 is a rare collectors item and only a handfull of people have them.

I do like the show.......

The womenz has nice hooters. Other than that, the show is a waste.

I saw the show also - I don't think they ever said it was a rare collectors item, but just that your average street thug didn't have one, because of the cost (which is probably true). However, the ballistics "expert" mispronounced Koch, and if you paid close attention, the gun they used was actually a USP Tactical (check out the sights) with an aftermarket barrel (it was polished, like I believe capital city's are), and none of the aftermarket barrles have polygonal rifling. Rocko

I'm shocked and offended that you would try to impugn the reputations of these forensic investigators and demand that this thread be locked immediately....

Yep, CSI is WAY too [B]foo-foo[/B] for my taste. However, "The Agency" follows right afterwards, and THAT's not too shabby a show! Been a long time since anyone has portrayed the CIA in a positive light, but this show does. Also, the regulars are interesting and believable characters — human, imperfect, yet very good at their jobs.

the projectile they kept showing had clearly defined rifleing. it was NOT fired from a poly barrel. about that and the registration i said "oh, bullshit!" out loud. everyone in the room looked at me. the turd in the punchbowl, as usual. just reminds me why i don't watch network tv.

Yes, you know that, and I know that, but the sheeple don't know that... and if they [b]think[/b] there's already registration, maybe they won't push for registration?

Actually, we do have gun registration. In Clark County (Las Vegas, etc.) all handguns (not rifles) must be registered with the police. It must be a well kept secret because I did not know about it until recently after I moved here. Someone told me I had to take my handguns down to the police station and get my "blue cards". When you buy a handgun the store does it for you - but all handguns must be registered in Clark County. Even with my CCW I have to carry the blue card for that particular gun as well as my CCW permit. In fact you can only have 2 handguns on your CCW and that means those are the ONLY 2 you can carry concealed. But a handgun (as long as it is registered) can be kept loaded in the glove box of your car (personal property). The laws are a little different here - on one had Las Vegas is pro-gun on the other it is not. Don't forget Algore carried the most votes here last November. The liberals are definitely growing in number here...... [shock]

What I missed.......what type of bbls did he call them?...(the glock-h/k)

The censors probably wouldn't let them pronounce "Koch" correctly.
Link Posted: 11/24/2001 4:29:41 PM EST
How do you pronounce it? I have heard kock, ko, and naturally kotch.
Link Posted: 11/24/2001 4:39:49 PM EST
According to the guys at the HK Academy it is pronounced "coke".

The owner of Sam Adams, Jim Koch, pronounces it 'cook' as well.

If you call the factory in Virginia(?) they pronounce it "coke" also. Even my wife called bullshit on the CSI show and she loves all that hinky crap.

It depends on who you are and where you come from. I would bet that somone on the set suggested pornouncing it "cock" and the censor whined, "Could you please say "Johnson" instead? We can say that on TV." I agree that one of the the German pronounciations, close to but not exactly "coke", is correct. By the way, "pornouncing" wasn't a typo...
Link Posted: 11/26/2001 10:04:01 AM EST
There was also a Charlie Scheen move on TBS a couple weeks back where he pronouced it "kotch"

1. It's just a TV show. 2. I pronounce it "HK". 3. I'm sleepy. [|)]

Only one reason to watch that show..... Marg Helgenberger Cheers
