Gun Review Topics
Looking for opinions on a good gun review format. What would you look for when purchasing or reviewing a firearm?

If I am understanding your question I would look for the ability to carry concealed with little printing. In-other-words is it a good gun for concealed carry or is it a big hunk of iron that will stick out like a sore thumb.

Not sure I understand the question. It all depends on what I'm looking for...carry gun, range, home defense, back-up? Lot's of variables.
Can you be more specific?

Are you asking what elements constitute a good gun review?
For me, I like to see pictures... sight picture, dimensions compared to something common of known size (Not just next to another gun, which I may not own myself and therefore doesn't really help me estimate how big, practically, the gun being reviewed is).
Details of any malfunctions. What caused them (Bad ammo? Bad magazines?)
A great biggie for me, and I understand that it's not practical for a lot of people, but I really like to see ballistic data with a variety of common cartridges. Like, 9mm- maybe American Eagle, WWB, SGDHP, Hydra-shok, etc.
This is prohibitive for the average person, but people with chronographs and the time for wet pack or water jug tests or even ballistic gelatin would be great. Mostly because while sites like ballisticsbytheinch are great, it's nice to see data for specific guns, which doesn't always exactly match up with the generic data.
If it's a carry gun, it's nice to see your holster(s) and how it conceals.

I like to see:
Picky about ammo.
Suitability for reloading.
Ease of reloading.
Stripping for cleaning.
Experience with customer service.
How it conceals with a couple of different holsters.
