Questions again. :D

1) Conversation below.

"Just answer one question, no bullshit. You didn't switch that diamond, did you?" She asked
"You wired?" He answered with a grin.
"Damnit, Pete"
"No, I didn't switch the diamond."

:?: What does "You wired?" in below conversation mean?

2) "There’s something to be said for the fact it saw a little action." What does this exactly mean?

3) Conversation below.

A: I have a couple of trucks and one of the first model air-buses. Bunged up pretty bad, but sentimental value there.
B: Might as well get the full effect.

:?: What does "Might as well get the full effect" mean?

4) Pls explain.

I can't imagine just shrugging it off if I knew he was going to kick. Pretty young for taking the slide, isn't he? Can't have hit even seventy yet. Guy's just cruising into his prime.

:?: What does "taking the slide" here mean?

:?: What doesn "cruising into his prime" mean?

5) We've got a civilian in the crosshair.

:?: What doesn "in the crosshair" mean?

6) When you say a man is poster boy look, it's mostly positive, right? I mean that man is pretty handsome, right? Have any negative meaning??

Thank you! :D

Are you carrying/hidding on your body under your clothes a tap wire. A wire with a small microphone that transmitts to the police what's being said.

2) "There’s something to be said for the fact (that) it saw a little action." What does this exactly mean?

Whatever "it" is, it has had experience/use. 'a little action' refers to battle/heavy use.

3) Conversation below.

B: Might as well get the full effect.

:?: What does "Might as well get the full effect" mean?

It's old but it's model/brand makes it look good.

4) Pls explain.

1. :?: What does "taking the slide" here mean?

2. :?: What doesn "cruising into his prime" mean?

1. Don't know. Did he die?
2. Going into his seventies i.e. age? Prime means, best time of life.


5) We've got a civilian in the crosshair.

:?: What doesn "in the crosshair" mean?

The sight on a gun: The lines are very fine, like hairs, and they cross.

6) When you say a man has poster boy look, it's mostly positive, right? I mean that man is pretty handsome, right? Have any negative meaning?

It could be positive or negative.

All the best, :D
