    Hadn’t heard this before but the 226 was popular before this rumor.

    Except bin Laden was killed with an HK416 5.56 mm rifle. Retards.

      Facts don’t make for sensational articles and gun sales, though. Can’t sell the HK416 in most states.

    Who seriously runs point on that kind of raid with their 9mm sidearm?

    • Christopher Joyce

      They didn’t, relax. This is a push for sales.

    I have one its a great gun. Like it better than my G17.

    One day it’s a Colt, then it’s the Hk416, and now it’s a P226?

    Let’s just get it over with and say he was done in with a 1911, serial number 1, with a silver bullet.

    After the Navy SEAL who fired that shot leaves the military, he could probably make something for himself autographing them. Yay, capitalism!
