Big dreams from this guy:

This game will get back to the core of what is loved about the tac-shooter, featuring realistic weapon modeling, outfitting and commanding your squad, objective-based, non-linear missions set in real-world locations around the world, single player, co-op, and multiplayer.

He has some nice credentials which give me confidence.  

I’ve seen a lot of projects I thought were weak on Kickstarter achieve lots of success.  For all the people that game, I’m really surprised the response is so weak so far.  Considering the minimum pledge is $15 and that gets you a digital download of the game, that seems like a really good deal.

I suppose a big part of the low response is due to the fact the $200000 is only to prove the viability to investors.  Really, if you donate your $15 god knows when you’ll ever see the game from it. It could be years.

Thoughts?

At a price tag of ~$7000 that’s not something you’d ever see me buying.

Man i’m sick of that accent.  For some reason the production value of his video seems to have gone way down.  Now he’s just another guy that shoots stuff, but happens to have millions of kids following him.

Giant baby, or tiny Glock? The call is yours to make:

What’s next? Are we going to be taking pictures of babies with shoulder things that go up, and assault clips?  

We need to stop the madness :P

The gun store guys tackle a classic gun forum question:

What’s next, 9mm v.s. .45?  That ought to make some blood boil.

22 minutes is a bit too long for a YouTube video if you ask me… I skimmed through this one because I don’t have that kind of time.  I figured some of you might want to kill some time at work on Friday though. :P

I’d like to buy an AK someday, just to have one.

Thoughts?

An original song by FXhummel1:

Wow even the original songs are epic.  I like knives a lot too, but I don’t own that many.

FXhummel1 is wearing ENDO Apparel as usual.  Maybe i’ll have to make a knife related shirt someday?  I’ll toss some ideas around in my head for a while.

Check out his youtube channel for other awesome songs.  If this is your first time seeing him, most of his recent songs before this are gun related.

A killer do it yourself project by a crafty mom:

You can read the whole article on her blog, it’s pretty funny.

After a comment from her husband: “It feels like Paris is taking over in here” and some inspiration from Phillippe Starck (maker of a ~$2000 version) she decided to take on the project.  She writes a cheeky hilarious letter to Phillippe Starck in the article too, school him on “guns”.  I know the correct terms are “firearm”, “handgun”, “pistol”, “rifle” etc.. but I’ve never been too picky on that.  I know for some of you it’s probably like the clip/magazine thing, but every time I say “firearm” to someone that isn’t really into them I feel like I should check the time on my pocket watch and adjust my monocle. 

I’m still partial to a desk lamp made out of real AR-15 parts, but the price is obviously not even comparable.

Thoughts?
