I dunno... he says he doesn't like 9mm pistols and then he praised one of the CZ platforms built around 9mm.
He lays out this strict criteria for a scout rifle and then says something else is an acceptable substitute.
The thing is, the man has done so much and is probably so skilled, he's probably gotten to the point where he can pick up the biggest piece of junk gun in existence and hit a clay with it on the first shot. He lives on Gunsite for Pete's sake.
I've always thought that the perfect shooter would have no preferences or biases other than for quality when it came to selecting hardware.
