“I’m going to be shooting out through my living room into my master bedroom out a window into into the woods”:

As they say “Don’t Shoot Where you Eat” … no wait, that’s not it.  Either way I’d have to say shooting inside my house for fun (or science in this case hehe) is not something I ever plan on doing.  There are lots of people I know who have dogs that shit, pee, and shed all over their house though, so I’m sure a little burnt gunpowder residue and other grime wouldn’t even phase them.

Moral of the video.. suppressors are pretty quiet but not WHISPER quiet, and smoke alarms don’t like indoor shooting.

Thoughts?

Bank Of America’s official statement:

While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false. Bank of America does not have a policy that prohibits us from banking with clients in this industry. In fact, we have numerous, longstanding customers in the industry.

We are also extremely proud of our support of the US military and reject any assertion to the contrary. We count as clients many companies that provide for our nation’s defense. We employ thousands of veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, and plan to increase our hiring this year.

Ugh… so they are denying they told McMillan to take a hike?  Fishy.  I highly doubt McMillan would make something like that up considering the legal ramifications of such accusations.

If you’re not familiar with McMillan, make sure to check them out.  They have a lot of nice products.

When I was looking for an accountant and a lawyer a couple years ago, I had a few similar experiences.  I found it surprising, because I always figured as a “professional” it was standard to keep your personal beliefs separate from your company’s business.  *shrug* I guess the economy is so good people can turn down business.  I maybe should have made a bigger deal out if it than I did, but I really don’t like wasting my time on people or companies that have twisted agendas and/or beliefs.

Thoughts? Anyone else have a similar experience?

Very well done. His dialog reminded me of the Gun Show Personalities and List of Offensive Shooting Range Stereotypes.

Note to people who email me videos/articles etc.. whether or not YOU created content has zero bearing on if I will post it or not.  If I like it I will post it, I don’t care who made it.  I have a lot of people pretending to email me as a 3rd party, and then it comes out later that they created the content.  In the end I don’t really care, but it just looks lame, desperate, and has an air of deceit.

A new magazine out there for gun lovers:

I was sent the first issue (pictured above) by Andy over at RECOIL, and I am please to say that I am very impressed.  Cover to cover it’s a graphic arts masterpiece, and the articles are well written.  There is advertising in it, but it’s not obtrusive and does not take up very many pages of the magazine like a lot of them I’m used to reading.

If you’re looking for some new gun related reading material I urge you guys to check it out.  It’s currently available at Wal-Mart, Barnes & Noble etc.. with home delivery coming soon.  There are other options such as iTunes and Nook versions you can check out HERE.

Make sure to also check out their website – Recoilweb.com

I asked Andy about giving away some subscriptions on the blog, and he said he would get back to me once they get their home delivery method worked out, so i’m keeping my fingers crossed.

A promotional / fundraising stunt put on by a Charlotte, NC radio show:

Raising some money for the USO of North Carolina, Woody put on a trash can and headed out onto the driving range. Did I mention that in addtion to driving golf balls at him with a golf club, you could also FIRE AN AR-15 at him?!? $1 per ball for a golf shot or $5 per ball to fire a golf ball from an AR-15 rifle at Woody. All the proceeds went to the USO of NC and Purple Heart Homes.

The armor: 

A video from the event:

Source – Woody & Wilcox

If you want to pick up an AR-15 Golf Ball Launcher for your own stupid stunts they are $25 over at Amazon.

Pointing an AR-15 at someone and pulling the trigger with or without a golf ball attachment, unless you’re planning on killing them doesn’t sit well with me.  The stunt did benefit the USO though which is a bonus, but I can’t see that organization being too thrilled about the method of fund raising.  I guess you can’t bite the hand(s) that feed you.

What’s next?  A real revolver contestants can play Russian roulette with, but instead of a real bullet there will be a fart stinkbomb capsule that will get broken by the hammer.  That person will be the winner.  Sounds equally as irresponsible and dumb.

Ooooo i’ve got another one.  A .50 BMG that contestants can wrap their mouth around the end of, but instead of real cartridges in the magazine, they will all be duds except for one that is filled with Redbull!  That person will be the winner.

I guess you just have to “hope” no one slips in a real round.  Wasn’t that on one child’s play movie?

Thoughts?  More dumb ideas?

Yea… there’s a lot of awesome here so get ready:

Eclectic Method definitely knows their way around an editing timeline.  If you haven’t already seen the 99 Problems movie cut they did for the Jay-z track by the same name, you should check it out.

Side note: It pisses me off all the duplicate stolen videos up on that piece of shit website liveleak.  How is that place not shut down?  The only real good thing about liveleak that I can think of, is their TOS is a lot less anal than youtube’s, so more graphic war/police incident type videos are permitted.

Make sure to watch Gunshots On The Beat – Basement Rap for the hardest beat out there.

Thoughts?
