A look at the futuristic looking Turkish shotgun:

To me it doesn’t look any more or less fun that your run of the mill Remington 870… I like the cool look though and surprisingly it even weighs a bit less than the Remington 870.  The 15 round total capacity is obviously quite awesome.

17:17 – I really don’t like the idea of the magazine being open to debris.  Sure it’s neat you can see what you have left.. but at what cost?

Seems like a lot of different parts and doors and hinges on this shotgun.

I don’t care much for the price either ~$1200

You can check out the UTAS website for more information on the UTS-15.  All the useful info seems to be in their pdf catalog.

In the end this just seems like one of those things CowwaDooty nerds will buy to impress their friends.

Thoughts?

Testing an AR-15 upper:

I don’t own anything by Larue Tactical (yet) but I’m told it’s really a notch or two above what you get from other manufacturers.  I don’t mind spending money if I’m going to get a better product, considering everyone and their grandma manufactures AR-15 receivers now.  Same goes for kydex holsters, everyone makes those now too I’m beginning to feel left out.

If you remember the A.R.M.S. vs Larue legal mess in 2009, this little “screw you” to A.R.M.S. was one of the reasons I fell in love with Larue Tactical in the first place.

There’s a good chance he didn’t lose that hand messing with ammo, but I don’t think I’ll take any chances:

3:20 – Firing test.  I’m actually very impressed how well they work.

4:40 – Shotgun Lawn Darts FTW!  Probably the most epic idea I’ve ever heard.

Thoughts?  Any of you ever try this?

Crazy sling shot guy Joerg Sprave is at it again:

I know I say this every time I post one of his videos, but he could honestly make a good living out of bringing most of these designs to retail.

1:03 – It’s breach loading. and to quote him “I call it the stink breach”   haha epic.

3:28 – “Smells like really old cheese with garlic”

That poison arrow he talks about at the end looks quite bad ass.  Joerg is definitely on some watch lists haha.

Speaking of stinky stuff, this reminds me I still have to send my sister a Fart By Mail.

Thoughts?

Oh yeeeeeeeeeah:

A lot of hip shots in this video. If it’s so comfortable to shoot as they say at 1:05, then why don’t we see any real shooting with it?

I want to get one of these and OC through the the hood on some straight Omar shit whistling farmer in the dell and dropping witty lines. I got the shotgun… you got the briefcase. It’s all in the game though right? A double glock, double deagle, and double 1911 are necessary firearms to have in the collection with this one.

What’s the point of 3 different chokes?  Maximum damage and spread?  Sounds kinda derpy.

Despite the fact the shotgun will be apparently available in January 2013, there is no mention of it on the Chiappa website.  Typical.

Thoughts?  

P.S. The cheese stands alone.

First an AR-15 slingshot.  Now check out what they call the bag it comes in when you buy one:

The D-Bag hahhahhah “Complete LVOA AR’s will ship in the D-Bag”.  Yea I get it D for “Discrete”, still though.

HSGI actually makes the bag for them.  Looks alright I guess… nothing really special though as far as I can tell.  I think a more discrete way to transport a rifle around would be in a tennis racket bag or a gym bag, as opposed to this high speed looking balistic nylon one.  I suppose people could just assume camera lenses or something were in this bag, but chances are since it looks custom people are going to be inquisitive.

They should have made a gag D-bag out of all EdHardy and Affliction print fabric.  Sadly it seems that companies rarely have a sense of humor.

Thoughts?
