How the heck did that ever get started? I mean what idiot ever thought that holding the pistol that way was cool? I guess the same one who thought up ebonics (there is now a real movement in the English departments of major universities to study ebonics as if it were a real language). Hey, too each their own I guess.

I always kinda assumed that the whole side-way shooting thing got started from hardcore gang wannabe's running away while shooting. You know - real tuff like :roll:.

Here is a funny article about the gag.

Funny thing is
I remember meeting willie bubbits at SHOT back in the early days of the Steyr M series.
he told me and another guy that some Italion movie studio had ordered M series guns with the dove tail cut into the slide on the top and the flat sides just so they could mount sites like that for a movie.

He thought it was pretty funny.


BTW, Birdman also makes real firearms accessories and is a really decent guy.

That is one of my favorite pics. I actually saw some gangstas at the gun show and they kept holding their guns sideways!!!
