Karl Lippard combat nco pistol?




So I keep running across referances to these, and my god do they talk a big game. 250 yard accuracy, used exclusivly by the CIA, major improvements, and a 5k price tag. Whats the deal? I mean, yea, a M1 carbine can hit out to 300 yards too... Whats the justification of the high price? Whats the Hype about? Is this some kind of inside joke that travels around nagging unsuspecting newbs?

I've seen it too. It's either an elaborate joke or excessive hype.

250 yrds with a 1911 ?!! PAH ! Piece of cake as, apparently this one is accurate to 350 yrds....

Oh, and it's the deadliest handgun ever. Ever.

There is also an interesting thread on one of Mr Lipppards $32,000 shotguns....

All my 1911's are accurate to 500 yards. Droping them down from a cliff with no wind. However I just can't bring myself to try it.
