I have previously admitted to you all that I am an open shooter. For the most part, I think open is the only division that matters, hence why I have this question. Not to mention that equipment is clearly the thing that separates the wannabes from the real stalkers of death. And I know how much you all love gear questions.
I do realize that there aren't many on this forum, but was hoping maybe one of you that is member of the superior breed have experience with these new fangled "New Generation" open guns that peeps like Atlas Gunworks and Limcat are pushing. What I mean by "new gen" are the shorty or mid-length guns, with steel grips, long dust covers, popple holes.. heavy short loud sumbitches.
I was just watching the Atlas video where Adam discusses them (seen below) and tries to sell the viewer on how everyone should be shooting these crazy heavy new gen guns in open, and that more weight is clearly better yadda yadda.
The gun he has in this video weighs 54 ounces. That is a lot of ounces. My current gun weighs 38.8 oz, so that is a 40% increase in weight. I'm not sure that I am down with that.
Have any of my fellow master race brethren used both styles, or have any insights into this situation? (light "old" guns and "new" gen) I am considering finally getting a brand new build at some point in the future, so I can quit buying mystery guns that have lots of problems.
Edited to clarify that I am a dumbass and should have posted this under technical discussion, the moderators should probably move it there. I apologize for inconveniencing everyone with my stupidity.
