    Hyde needs to do more research on his weapons his character uses, One Character had an MP-5 which fired 10 mm rds and had a holster. Only MP-10s shoot 10mm and the guy in the situation he was in would have had an MP-5K and even it wouldn’t have a holster. And bushmaster are not big caliber rifles., 5.56 is a small caliber varmint rd. and a Bushmaster is a AR-15,

      Thank god someone finally put Hyde in his place with respect to the weapons his characters use. Thank you very much, buzzman1. I have been trying to contact Hyde for years to have him correct these kinds of errors but my correspondence has never been returned. Finally, I can get the proper sleep I deserve.

        Its a pet peeve of mine whena writer will do so much research for a book and forget to even google up weapons. To many people learn about guns (and history) in books of fiction. Many writers also need to look at maps before they write a story line.

    I wish to contact Christopher Hyde’s agent when he writes as Paul Christopher. Can anyone provide me with an email address through which, I may do so?
