Hmm.... Dont know what to think about this
I am obviously distraught over this or I wouldnt have posted about it. I guess its not such a big deal, but then, I feel somehow cheated in a way. Violated might even describe it. Still, this is the internet and I knew it could have happened, I just never thought in quite this way and in my OWN HOUSE so to speak.
I am a member of another gun oriented forum, XD Talk to be exact. Several months ago, I posted some threads with pictures featuring some self defense ammo that I used in some non-scientific home tests. Tests just to show expansion diameters and bullet shapes after impact.
Well, today I find a thread about one of these ammo brands that I featured and in that thread is a reply by a newby with 19 posts total. He stated that his buddy " . . .Ray did some tests with the ammo and got these results . . ."
He sates that "These rounds were fired from a 5" 1911 into 10% ordinance jelly."
That is an outright lie! I fired these bullets myself, into four one gallon milk jugs full of water from a distance of 15 feet from a 4" XD .45acp service model.
He also used MY PHOTOS that are still, to this day, posted in my original thread about the ammo I tested! He gave credit to his buddy Ray.
I have made it clear, in that particular thread, that the images were mine and credit should not go to Ray. I dunno what else I should say or do, but I feel that this is just wrong. I guess I should have watermarked my images, but I didnt and now I cant.
