I had a look at the Elcan Specter DR when I was at the shop and really liked how you had a 1x/4x combo where you just need to flip a switch and you have close, medium, and long range covered. I know it's a little heavy, I didn't know that damn thing costs like $2,000. :lol:
I appreciate all of t...

That's primarily what I'm considering. I know I don't want a strict medium/long distance optic like the 4x Acog, for example, because I want something suitable for close quarters. So I'll be looking at EOtech (Red dot/3x magnifier...

I've never read a single comic/graphic novel in my life so I'm not seriously bitching about it. I'm sure it will look cool. Just not really great photos, IMO.
Also, I looked up the Batsuit from The Dark Knight Returns. I hope he finds something a bit more high-tech if he's planning on tangling...

I know it's not the entire suit and hasn't been done up for the actual film, but it looks like something from a bondage shop compared to this:

1. Have at least one black friend for cannon fodder, the more the merrier. Same goes with any couples you know who engage in premarital sex.
2. Hear a strange noise? See something creepy? Run in opposite direction instead of investigating.
3. Don't walk around filming shit...
