Hence the "(correctly)"

I went through the local PD's handgun qualification recently, and they talked about a "tactical reload". I asked if ALL reloads could not be considered "tactical", and the answer was "Yes - but we call our drop-the-mag-on-the-floor-and-reload 'tactical' coz it sounds better than 'rushed'."

Nothing beats a sense of humour.

Anyway I was messing around and instaled my Octane 45 HD Silencer and a Surefire X400 light laser combo just for fun. Just to see how it looks, and figured I would share.
But can you really call a 22lr Tactical?
You can call it tactical if you want to BUT tactical is really centerfire, at least .223, full auto and preferably belt fed.

Imho it can have a tactical look but is a tactical weapon? Not by my book.

Anyway love my new (Tactical) Ruger 22/45 but yea it's a marketing thing. I just like what the gun offered besides, the tactical and read handbook stamped down the barrel. That part I could do without. Not much difference between this and selling pink guns.
