Fifty-four years ago plus five days, nearly thirteen hundred troops of the paramilitary Cuban exile group Brigade 2506 landed in Cuba, in an attempt to overthrow the Communist Cuban government, led by Fidel Castro. Sponsored by the CIA, the Brigade was armed with a motley of weapons, many ex-US military examples left over from World War […]

We find out some new stuff about Jurassic World in this:

I mentioned in the first trailer I posted, I’ll definitely be seeing this.  Chris Pratt is pretty awesome.  I have no doubt in my mind the movie will be predictable and cheesy, but that’s kind of the point.
Interesting choices of firearms in the movie, looks like a lot of custom stuff.  2:17 – sweet WalMart optic bro.
The CGI looks absolutely top notch in this

You know I love a good manufacturing / render / making of:

Very nice.  The foreign ammunition company is called Geco.  I don’t know who did that video for them, but it’s off the chain.
I held my breath up until the “firing” sequence to see if the entire cartridge would leave the barrel haha.
Kind of funny the modesty when they were showing the targets at the end… no “ragged hole” here guys, don’t get it twisted.
Thoughts?  Would shoot a pretentious match with?

Smith and Wesson is famous for two things: Well-made service revolvers, and mind-boggling model numbers. LuckGunner’s Chris Baker has set out to clarify a small portion of the later. From his article on Smith

NRA’s Billy Johnson wants to make a documentary:

The media-fed misperception about violence is a threat to our fundamental human freedoms.
You can check out the Kickstarter campaign here.
I’d watch it if it got funded that’s for sure.  Doesn’t look promising though when he needs about $175,000 in the next 9 days.  I don’t dispute that the $225,000 goal he has isn’t a realistic expectation of the cost… I just think people are so used to getting quality videos (visually anyway) now for free, they are hesitant to throw any money at people.  I know Billy would do this right… it’s just a shame he won’t do it for free and convince others to help him for free as well

German news media have been on fire over the past couple of days over a report that is expected to be released to the public soon. It is apparent that the audit report of the G36 rifle, conducted by the Ernst Mach Institute and Bundeswehr’s Technical Center for Weapons and Ammunition, is especially damning. A report […]

Tosh.0 On Stolen Valor

Brent —  April 18, 2015 — Leave a comment

Spoiler alert: Cory07ink doesn’t make an appearance.

In the realm of stolen valor when you call a person out you have yell “STOLEN VALOR” and tell them “it’s a federal offense” apparently.  Cool story bros… the government has prosecuted precisely zero people so far (to the best of my knowledge).  I think this is incredibly shitty, especially in the cases where people are profiting off it by misleading customers.  Some of those people in the video are obviously pathological liars, or mentally handicapped.  Does it really matter if they want to pretend to be something they are not?  I’d hazard a guess that most of these guys are also so dumb that even if they did beaten up by veterans, they would just be back to faking it again the next day anyway… but likely with even more sympathy from the public because of injuries they sustained as an 11B in the sandbox

18 year old Kai Kloepfer has a dream:

Kai is using the $50,000 grant he received from the Smart Tech Challenges Foundation to integrate a biometric fingerprint sensor onto a live firearm. This gun would prevent unauthorized users from firing the weapon, reducing accidental injury and death, and keeping homes across America safer.
1:11 – That’s nice they actually included the gun store owner saying he wasn’t too fond of the concept.  You don’t often see both viewpoints being shown.
4:08 – Military applications?  Huh why?  I like that this kid is asking questions anyway… that’s how you learn.

Libya mystery firearm

Brent —  April 17, 2015 — Leave a comment

As the problems in Libya spread throughout the country because of the sectarian violence, this mystery light machine gun has made headway in a recent Reuters article. Judging from the stock, pistol grip, trigger guard, gas tube, and compensator, it appears to be a Bren gun, however it also appears to be belt fed, which […]

It’s lit:

I’ve always wanted one.  Sadly that’s probably not going to happen, so I’ll settle with a 92 and a quick finger I guess.
As always Larry delivers on the slow motion footage.
Thoughts?
