Ok the first one to answer the question wins an xd prize.

What great great nephew to a famous painter was killed with an HS2000?

I found the answer in an obscure place and thought it was interesting. Any one who is truely a fan of the xd and hs2000 would probably want to know this trivia fact great for small talk. To bad the nephew died he was on our side.

Theo van Gogh was the great nephew

Van Gogh was murdered in the early morning of Tuesday November 2, 2004, in Amsterdam in front of the Amsterdam East borough office (stadsdeelkantoor) on the corner of the Linnaeusstraat and Tweede Oosterparkstraat streets. He was shot with eight bullets from a HS2000 (a handgun produced in 2000 in Croatia) and died on the spot.

Hmm... maybe the throat slit killed him.> The 8 bullets could have just wounded him... you never know... :roll: :roll:

I know, I know, I'm fishing...

I think he died from bumping his head. The eight bullets just let the air out of him so he would fall :!: :twisted:

What is not commonly known is that the handgun used was actually an HS95, precursor to the HS2000, and one of a batch of 450 pistols stolen from an army base in Split.
