Your graphics are stretched out horizontally: your pic of the .25acp looks like an illustration of the .30 M1 Carbine cartridge! The vest pocket pistols don't look anything like IRL too. Is there any way to turn off the "fit to HD TV 16:9 aspect ratio"?

WRT to GunTESTs magazine: I was a subscriber briefly back in the '90s. It was a useful and interesting format, and a valuable countervailing force in firearms lit back in those days before the internet really took off. You have to remember that back then, the regular gun rags got specially-vetted examples of test guns, and if they encountered problems, they'd give their advertisers a chance to make good before final publication. GunTESTs, for all its flaws, was buying their guns and giving honest reviews. However, they were *not* unbiased reviewers, nor did they make allowances for minor repairs [what Kel-Tec owners would eventually come to call the "initial fluff & buff," that was required to get the guns to perform reliably.] GunTESTs went on to see great improvement in their reviewing process, but that was long after I'd given up on them.
