Is it just me or does Time Magazine have a gun lover for a photographer? The last several issues have some great "action shots" of weapons. I know that we at war now and the coverage may have picked up, but these are some great pics! It weird that with all the TV and internet news service that a magazine would still have the right stuff. Good Work Time!

I dropped my subscription to Time Magazine during the Clinton administration. It was so pro Clinton that it made me sick. One of the female Time reporters said she would give Bill a blow job just because he was pro abortion.

I was surprised at the coverage of the Bush Whitehouse. So far it seems to be middle of the road. It was a little critical of the Enron connection a few weeks ago but overall it a written some good articles.

I cancelled my Time subscription back in the days of Pappa Bush when they were leading the anti-assault weapons charge. I haven't sent a dime to those socialist bastards since.

Time-Newsweek have a lot of bad blood to make up before they get a penny of my money. For the last thirty-five years they have been on the wrong side of virtually every issue from me.

The editors at TIME magazine plainly stated in an editorial about 5 years ago that they would no longer remain "neutral" in the gun control debate and would actively support restrictive gun laws. The money you pay for the magazine just to get "cool" gun pics is helping them take away your RKBA.

Maybe I see things different. My wife is a photographer and I guess I judge the book on it cover instead of it's content? Well anyway if you feel like you should NOT see any photos from Time then by all means hit your back button NOW!

TIME magazine only shows guns being used by the military and bad guys. They know that good guys have no need for guns. They are subtly reinforcing the notion that semi-automatic rifles are only appropriate for the military, unless you are a terrorist. People see pictures like these, and then see your AR, and immediately freak out. "That guy has the same gun that the Palistinian used!" You may call it 'good publicity', but I call it 'propaganda by saturation'. Oh, and checking out TIME magazine for pics of guns is like checking out National Geographic for nudie pics. [stick]

I find myself unable to tell you the PEQ-2 is not "TIE-WRAPPED" to the handguard. Wish I could see this guy's night-scope mount ! (Yeah, I know he may be using NV goggles.)

I can think of a couple of possibilities: 1) An editor with "balls." 2) Management that has noticed FOX News quick climb based on middle-of-the-road reporting. I pick number (2)

It is indeed- one tie wrap and a pice of 51/50 cord. Great stuff. Personaly I'd 100mph tape it to the guard if anything, but I can see the lad catching hell from some old armourer about that. I dont know what exactly a PEQ laser is, but its funny, his weapon looks JUST like the one I've right here (sans the bayo lug, and with a longer barrel) with my DVD remote tied to it.........naah....the wife would get awful mad ^_^ Amir

GuardTanker, just in case you're serious, the PEQ-2 is an IR laser aiming device used with night vision.

Sub sailor (the voice of reason on the Israel flame wars), more being sarcastic than anything- we in the Guard are about ten years behind that, although the Abrhams mounts a very similar device.
