A Las Vegas man is trying to teach gun safety… by having people shoot each other. Pfft, we’ve been doing that in Philadelphia since the 1800s.
If a former bounty hunter gets his way, gun-fighting with Simunitions (a kind of non-lethal man-marker round generally used in force-on-force training) will become the next big thing:
Later this month, two guys plan to walk into a North Las Vegas bar and shoot each other. The combatants will be wearing ballistics-grade head and body armor, carrying dinner plate-sized forearm shields and modified police-issue 9mm Glocks.
That’s where a new sport, known to its North Las Vegas-based creators as tactical fast draw, is set to make its Jan. 31 debut.
“You’ll get two points for a head shot and one point for anything to the (body) vest,” fast draw inventor and former bounty hunter Nephi Oliva said. “You can score a maximum of 12 points, but there’s no time limit, so it’s almost like a boxing match with bullets.”
This is a bad idea. You watch, things will get heated, and the combatants will run outside and shoot each other nasty Facebook messages.
The arms world lost a genius today. Mikhail Kalashnikov has died.
Mikhail Kalashnikov, whose work as a weapons designer for the Soviet Union is immortalized in the name of the world’s most popular firearm, died Monday at the age of 94.
Kalashnikov once aspired to design farm equipment. But even though his most famous invention — the AK-47 assault rifle — sowed havoc instead of crops, he often said he felt personally untroubled by his contribution to bloodshed.
“I sleep well. It’s the politicians who are to blame for failing to come to an agreement and resorting to violence,” he said in 2007.
The AK-47 — “Avtomat Kalashnikov” and the year it went into production — is the world’s most popular firearm, favored by guerrillas, terrorists and the soldiers of many armies. An estimated 100 million guns are spread worldwide.
You have to love ABC’s editorializing here. Guns are evil, and to prove it, we’re going to remind our lessers the AK-47 is the preferred weapon of evildoers…
HDT Robotics has created a self-propelled machine gun. It’s perfect for those jackass neighbors who always take your parking spaces… like the neighbors next to me.
The HDT Robotics Self-Driving Machine Gun uses a M240 machine gun and it can fire at a target at almost 500 feet away. Such a robot could help clear the way for soldiers to safely enter a battlefield, assuming it’s able to tackle the terrain us puny humans can. The prototype was demonstrated for the US Army, and you’ll notice that they have it chained up “for safety purposes.” Perhaps they learned a lesson from ED-209.
The Obama administration has already ordered a gross for open-air memorial security.
Airsoft has created a non-lethal BB grenade. It’s just the thing for punk teenagers, noisy dogs, or livening up things in the boudoir.
Pull the pin and let the propane do the rest. When Airsoft’s Tornado Impact Grenades detonate, they scatter over 200 plastic 6mm pellets in all 3 dimensions under which your enemies might try to take cover. This means that unless they are cowering under a table like a wussy lapdog whose default setting is to shake like someone put a quarter in it, they’re probably going to take a hit.
Tornado Impact Grenades are reusable with reloads of BBs and gas, and have been designed to last for “gazillions of throws!” That’s a direct quote from the manufacturer.
This little beauty has me on pulled pins and needles. Thank you, I’ll be here all week!
SSK Industries has created a .905-caliber rifle. The rounds are allegedly larger than “Carlos Danger’s” member.
An Ohio-based gun company has developed the world’s first .905-caliber rifle that – at .905 – is the highest-caliber rifle in the world. And with bullets that cost more than $40 a piece, you’ll probably think twice before pulling the trigger. The rifle is the creation of SSK Industries and is essentially a shoulder-mounted cannon, with rounds that look like mini mortar shells.
The rifle fires rounds about 2,100 feet per second with roughly 254,000 foot-pounds of muzzle energy. The gun also has 2,777 foot-pounds of recoil energy, which essentially makes it as powerful – and has about as much ‘kick’ – as firing 10 .30-6 rifles at the same time.
That’s not a problem, as long as you hold the rifle like this.
There are so many different ways to show your love. With this ring, you can tell her she is number one with a bullet.
It’s not often that you see a ring made from a bullet that you could see women wearing. These Bullet Blossom rings are just that. Bang and bloom in one. It’s the softer side of firearm ammunition.
The rings are made from Colt .45 ACP bullet casings that are cut and curled into a beautiful and unique rosette. They’re then soldered to an 18-gauge brass backplate. To top it all off, a Swarovski crystal in the color of your choice is inserted in place of the primer, trading its bang for some bling.
As a bonus, no cad would ever make a move on a woman wearing this!
I think I found the reason so many illegals are swarming past our southern border. If they stay in Mexico, they’ll be murdered by thugs using guns provided by the Obama administration.
A high-powered rifle lost in the ATF’s Fast and Furious controversy was used to kill a Mexican police chief in the state of Jalisco earlier this year, according to internal Department of Justice records, suggesting that weapons from the failed gun-tracking operation have now made it into the hands of violent drug cartels deep inside Mexico.
Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, the police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo, was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire. Also killed was one of his bodyguards. His wife and a second bodyguard were wounded.
Instead of being tracked, almost all the weapons were lost as they flooded across the border into Mexico. In all, some 211 people were killed or wounded by Fast and Furious weapons in Mexico, according to Mexican authorities. And on this side of the border, a Fast and Furious weapon was found at the Arizona scene where U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was slain in 2010.
So, Attorney General Eric Holder has 211 victims linked to him. Were he a normal American, he’d be traipsing into serial killer territory. Luckily for him, no one in the MSM cares, and he’ll never be held accountable for his actions. ¡Sí se puede!
Chiappa Firearms is proudly featuring a triple-barrel shotgun. Because, you know, double-barrel shotguns are so 1975.
In January 2013 Turkish gun maker Chiappa introduced two 12-gauge triple barrel shotguns. Both have “Rem-choke” and a 3″ x 3″ Magnum capacity, but the Triple Crown boasts three 28″ barrels, while the Triple Threat’s measure 18-1/2″. The Threat also includes a wooden stock that can be partly disassembled, as it is intended as a home defense weapon. The Crown should put a glint in the eyes of sportsmen.
Neither shotgun has a barrel selector, but rather fire clockwise, beginning with the lower right barrel. They aren’t the first triple barrel guns to be released–shotgun and rifle combination guns called Drillings gained popularity after WWI in Europe–but someone who has presumably gazed upon a lot of gun barrels noted in a review that they may be the first 3-barrelers with this particular capacity and configuration.
The worst part? Now we have to update the phrase “give him both barrels.” Paging Merriam-Webster!
“President” Barack Obama, speaking in Mexico today, blamed that country’s violence on American guns. This would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic.
“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.
You know what else would save lives in Mexico, you arrogant asshole? Not funneling guns to Mexican drug cartels. Or did you think we forgot about Fast and Furious?
There is video at the link, if you can stomach it.
The city council of Nelson, Georgia is proposing a law which would make gun ownership mandatory.
Hear that? That’s the sound of liberal skulls exploding.
Every homeowner in a local town could soon have to own a gun or break the law. It’s a controversial new plan for the city of Nelson. Leaders [said] the reason they need the law is because the city straddles Cherokee county to the south and Pickens County to the north. That, they said, can lead to slower response times.
One police officer patrols Nelson, Georgia for eight hours during the day. That leaves 16 hours overnight when the city is basically unguarded.
“When he’s not here we rely on county sheriffs; however it takes a while for them to get here,” said Nelson City Councilman Duane Cronic. That’s why [he] proposed the ordinance.
I see the point of the ordinance, but I don’t necessarily agree with it. Every citizen of Nelson should be allowed – no, encouraged – to own a firearm, but I don’t believe anyone should have a gun forced upon them.
Doing otherwise makes this law no different than New York’s ridiculous new gun legislation.
