In general, an opinion is a judgment, viewpoint, or statement that is not conclusive. It may deal with subjective matters in which there is no conclusive finding. What distinguishes fact from opinion is that facts are more likely to be verifiable, i.e. can be agreed to by the consensus of experts. An example is: "United States of America was involved in the Vietnam War" versus "United States of America was right to get involved in the Vietnam War". An opinion may be supported by facts and principles, in which case it becomes an argument. Different people may draw opposing conclusions (opinions) even if they agree on the same set of facts. Opinions rarely change without new arguments being presented. It can be reasoned that one opinion is better supported by the facts than another by analyzing the supporting arguments. In casual use, the term opinion may be the result of a person's perspective, understanding, particular feelings, beliefs, and desires. It may refer to unsubstantiated information, in contrast to knowledge and fact.
Collective or professional opinions are defined as meeting a higher standard to substantiate the opinion. (see below)

    What's your opinion about AIWB (appendix carry)?

    Sure, it's a re-hash well-done here, but one of those subjects that just won't die. One of many videos I recently watched.... Me, it's about the only way I carry. After a couple years of daily carry, just seems to work for me.

    Opinion's needed, Offset Flash Hole - .223

    This is a once fired case. I have found about ( 4 ) of these in the last 40 rounds of PMC I shot. I'm a retired machinist, and I have no idea why it would take two steps to put in a primer pocket and flash hole. It should be done in one step, and this would eliminate the risk of an offset flash...

    Steiner M332.

    First and foremost there may be some bias in the review. After getting the extended rail for the Steyr Aug it was much easier to get a cheekweld, so I went and tried it again. I like it for what it is, and its pretty good for the price. But ultimately not for me. Pros: Illumination is just...
