Where do most of you read reviews, look at the gun closer, see the pro's and con's of the gun?

Cause most of the reviews i see are always really poorly done!
Companies obviously just make it look really good by telling you only the pro's. To make you buy it.

And people who have already bought it are just really noobish at making reviews.
Don't know how to explain things properly, don't tell you the important information, FPS, material, range, if it fits you etc etc.

And its got me thinking to make my own reviews and to keep it simple and to the point and telling people of the pro's and the con's.

But obviously with my small collection of guns i am unable to make a large enough library.
So was either considering or suggesting to people. Who would either like to team up together and make videos, or can do it themselves :P

I just want to watch decent reviews online :(

I just google around a lot, often old forum threads come up in the searches which are always useful.

The problem with this technique is they aren't often too in depth and one bad comment seems to tower over 5-10 comments from people who are happy with their purchase.

The problem you will always find with written reviews is that the bulk of people will only write a review if it is rubbish for instance I'm over the moon with my jg g36c but have not bothered with a review but if it had broke really quick I would have to warn other people. Anything that is mass produced are allways going to have the odd bad one that slips through the net. Problem is they seem to be the only ones you hear about.
