A fan made US Naval Special Warfare DEVGRU Recruitment Video:
*eye roll* @ the suppressed fire sounds. I think it would have been more effective to just not have any firing sounds than those dumb movie-type ones.
Besides that there was obviously some cool footage because those guys do cool stuff. Who is this recruiting you ask? COD nerds everywhere now brushing the Cheeto dust off their shirts, telling their moms to get their tactical load out from the rubbermaid containers in the garage, and starting to do some physical training.
Every time I see night vision I am always reminded how bulky it is.. that does NOT look like fun to wear. Beats dying though obviously.
The reviews seem to be mixed… some say it’s the best thing ever, and some say it lets in too much light. For only $10 over at Amazon it might be worth a try though if you’re in the market for something like this.
I for one much prefer pitch black, than even a bit of light in the room… but if I’m tired enough it really doesn’t matter. Apparently operators in operations use these things, but I can not confirm that.
I’ll probably put mine on and hang upside down from the roof, field stripping my Glock over and over again while heavy metal music is on to try and distract me. The usual gun blogger type ops…
Uh yea… I’m not touching this one. I’m sure he’s had to delete a million comments considering his heavily criticized history regarding vehicle ambushes. I mentioned before I don’t have an opinion on those events… I wasn’t there and the video sucks.
AR15.com member / veteran AlexBosco knocks it out of the park with this one:
Mmmmm up close it looks like it’s made out of cake:
About the product:
I have been developing with the Chief Prosthetis at local Veterans Hospital a Stabilizing Brace (SB15) for the ar15 pistol, and a few other pistols that are similar in format, that I think all of us here will appreciate. I haven’t posted anything sooner because I’ve been waiting for the “Patent Pending Approval” from my patent lawyer and the phone call from the ATF giving me the verbal ok. The ATF has finally given me the verbal ok over the phone and I am expecting the Approval letter shortly, which I will post once received. I am a veteran and after 12 years of service and various deployments I have some mobility issues with my shooting hand and arm and the intent of the SB15 is to assist those with limited strength or mobility while shooting from the one-handed pistol precision stance or one handed supported stance.
That’s awesome. I really hope he doesn’t charge more than $120 for it. I imagine the market is a lot bigger than he originally might anticipate. A lot of people with perfectly fine mobility are going to want this thing just to make their AR pistol suck less (those of you that don’t have SBRs know what I mean). If he tries to charge $150 for instance, people might as well just add another $50 and go the SBR route. I’ve never worked with foam rubber, but I’m assuming it’s not any more expensive than the usual polymers. If he keeps to the design pictured, the mold wouldn’t be that complicated either so I don’t anticipate the start-up costs being out of hand.
Alex says the final product will be available in black, tan, and olive drab.
