Couple detained over Tweet

Freedom of Speech, just watch what you say. This is what America is coming to? We let people with 5 DUI's out on the street but if you send a misinterpreted tweet you may be a "terrorist". Interesting...

A young couple (Irishman Leigh Van Bryan, age 26 and British citizen Emily Bunting, age 24) from across the pond was detained at a Los Angeles airport after Homeland Security agents mistook a couple Twitter quips for threats against the U.S., the two told British media today.

"Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America," one of the tweets read. Bryan told The Sun that in this context "destroy" just meant party.

"The officials told us we were not allowed in to the country because of Leigh's tweet," Bunting told The Daily Mail. "They wanted to know what we were going to do... They asked why we wanted to destroy America and we tried to explain it meant to get trashed and party... I almost burst out laughing when they asked me if I was going to be Leigh's lookout while he dug up Marilyn Monroe."

Beretta ARX-160 at SHOT

Another polymer rifle throws its hat in the ring.

Beretta showed the ARX-160 last year at SHOT 2011. It is back this year but still no release date. I gotta say, the thing needs to go on a diet. I hope its lightweight like Beretta claims.

The SCAR, the ACR and now the ARX-160 all trying to replace the M4. What do you think?

Bump Fire AR15 with FPS RUSSIA

I agree this looks fun as hell. The only problem is affording all that "fun"!

A mag of 30 rounds for an AR/AK costs anywhere from $7.00 and up. You can go thru that in less than 2 seconds. Fun = money. I still want one! A registered machine gun is $10,000 or more depending on the type. Points for the "flash enhancer".

This Slide Fire stock is available for AR15 and AK47 platforms and retails for about $350.00.

New AK47 Revealed

The newest model AK dubbed the "AK 12" has built in rails, an ambidextrous charging handle and 3 shot burst. Another rifle for my wish list. Damn you Russia, damn you.

Russia’s largest firearms manufacturer, JSC Izhmash, unveiled its first model of the fifth-generation Kalashnikov assault rifle. The Russian Defense Ministry will tentatively call the new model the AK-12. Izhmash’s chief designer, Vladimir Zlobin, initiated the development and in 2011 saw completion of the assembly of this new weapon. “Researchers are currently field-testing the new weapon,” an Izhmash spokesperson said Wednesday.

Designers created the new rifle as a basic platform, which operators can use for the development of nearly 20 different modifications for civil and military firearms. The caliber of cartridges used for the new rifles may vary from 5.45х39 to 7.62х51 millimeters.

Navy SEALs rescue captives

9 Somalia captors were left dead during a Navy SEAL raid this morning.

In a rare US incursion into Somalia, Navy SEALs flying at least six military helicopters flew in to pluck American, Jessica Buchanan, and Dane, Poul Thisted, to safety in a fierce gun-battle which left all nine kidnappers dead.

Witnesses said US forces took control of Galkayo airport during the raid with several support aircraft landing there, but it received mixed reactions, with some unhappy at the US military action.

Gee, who was unhappy with the US Military? The dead captors? Next time we will send over hugs and rainbows and ask nicely if we can have the prisoners back.

Another Resident Evil Movie?

Lots of Resident Evil news lately including this and this. There is a 5th movie in the works and here is the first trailer.

Milla Jovovich is my absolute favorite. Paul W. S. Anderson (her husband and director of the series) is not. He is the man that has ruined not only the Resident Evil movies but the Alien vs Predator movies as well. So at this point I will watch this movie to see Milla, however I don't expect a story that makes any sense at all. I wish someone more competent could take the reigns and give the fans a decent flick.

Does anyone care at this point?

Angle Mounted Sights?

The 2012 SHOT show has started...let the product announcements begin!

When you can't fit iron sights on your rifle what do you do? Mount them at an angle!

I personally don't want to have to turn my rifle 45 degrees just to get on target. This isn't the first time I have seen or heard of these types of angle mounted sights. Apparently transitioning from long range to "CQB" is a big issue.

Would you use these on your rifle?

Buy your XS sights for $150.00 here.

Tactical Go Juice!

The most tactical energy drink is so bad ass you should only have 3 cans per day! No really, read the fine print.

Carbonated water and high fructose corn syrup = elite tactical operator status. I bet it tastes like liquid gunpowder, and that is good enough for me. Has anybody tried it?

Magpul 2012 products

Here is a leaked Magpul scan from the 2012 catalog. Meh. There is nothing too exciting here. It looks like a new hand stop, mag coupler and "improved" magazines are going to be available soon.

I would like to see a translucent magazine from Magpul before they do another PMAG redesign.

LW-15 Polymer AR-15 lower

My favorite Las Vegas gun store just released their own brand of polymer lower. (Like I need another excuse to shop there!)

I looked into the "Plum Crazy" polymer lowers for some time but never dropped the cash. This one looks incredibly durable and I can't wait to get my hands on one. I will post a full review after I get one in my grubby hands. Stupid grubby hands, I should go wash them.

Release date is Jan 25th, 2012.

"You can beat me up, I can take it."

Blind them with Lasers!

UK Police may soon have a new weapon against rioters.

The laser, resembling a rifle and known as an SMU 100, can dazzle and incapacitate targets up to 500m away with a wall of light up to three metres squared. It costs £25,000 ($38,330 US dollars) and has an infrared scope to spot looters in poor visibility.

Looking at the intense beam causes a short-lived effect similar to staring at the sun, forcing the target to turn away.

You could outfit a lot more officers with tear gas and rubber bullets for $38,000 dollars. Maybe if you want to riot you could just wear aviator shades and be safe? If you want to protest that is one thing, but riot or loot? Well in that case you get what you get.

Zombies, Lickers and Tyrants. Oh My!

This is the Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City - Triple Impact Trailer.

10,800,000+ guns sold in 2011!

NEO said it best: "GUNS, LOTS OF GUNS".

American men and women bought over 10,800,000 plus firearms during nineteen straight months including all of 2011.

The final number, of 10,800,000, is considered conservative by experts because the this number does not account for the multiple purchase of guns at the same time or the guns bought and sold legally, person to person by US residents, which rightly so, do not require a background check.

The guns purchased by American men and women in 2011 is more than one gun for every active duty military member in the worlds fourteen largest armies combined.

Honey Badger .300 BLK

The Honey Badger .300 BLK rifle can go from subsonic rounds to supersonic rounds with just the change of a magazine! The rifle maintains the normal GI magazine capacity of 30 rounds.

The 7.62x35mm cartridge was developed to replace the 9mm standard MP5-SD cartridge. The supersonic ammo matches 7.62x39mm (AK-47) ballistics from a shorter barrel.

No civilian pricing has been announced at this time. Boo.

Woman shoots Burglar

This is exactly why people should be able to defend themselves with a firearm. None of this "well, you know the burglar had a tough childhood and he should be allowed to break into your home and steal all of your crap".

If someone breaks into your house than they get what they deserve (which is not your big screen tv).

18-year-old Sarah McKinley was home with her three-month old son on New Year's Eve when two men, one armed with a 12-inch hunting knife broke into her home outside Oklahoma City.

The 24-year-old intruder was shot dead the second he stepped through the door. Police say the other man with him, identified as Dustin Stewart later turned himself in.

Police say McKinley's use of force was justified and that the second intruder has been charged with burglary.

I have to assume that she would be assaulted or dead if she didn't have a weapon.

Man shoots .45 with his feet

This man manages to shoot and reload a .45 with his FEET! Pretty damn impressive. I can barely write legible with my right hand. I can't write at all with the my left, yet he manages day to day activities with only his feet.

NASA: The world wont end in 2012

NASA advises the world is all good for 2012. Sorry guys, you won't be needing your underground bunkers yet.

According to NASA:

Question (Q): Are there any threats to the Earth in 2012? Many Internet websites say the world will end in December 2012.

Answer (A): Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012. Special Operations Apps recently filed a patent on an “adaptive” material that consists of a vinyl substrate, a flexible image display that could adjust to a given environment, and thermoelectric panels that could modify a soldier’s heat signature.

Q: Could phenomena occur where planets align in a way that impacts Earth?

A: There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades, Earth will not cross the galactic plane in 2012, and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible. Each December the Earth and sun align with the approximate center of the Milky Way Galaxy but that is an annual event of no consequence.

Adaptive Camouflage

Special Operations Apps, a software design firm in Wilmington, N.C., has developed a process to make site-specific camouflage.

I want the hot pink camo, for urban warfare of course.

The software combines photographs of a given location, taken by satellites, drones or reconnaissance teams, into customized, terrain-specific patterns that can be printed directly on a garment.

Special Operations Apps recently filed a patent on an “adaptive” material that consists of a vinyl substrate, a flexible image display that could adjust to a given environment, and thermoelectric panels that could modify a soldier’s heat signature.
