AHahhahahhaha so true.  I suppose though since a lot of games are close quarters combat, if shotguns worked as they do in real life then they would be too powerful of a weapon.

Thoughts?

Cool mod, but I wonder how comfortable it would be to play with:

No work involved for you, seen on Etsy for $54.89

Brand new unmodified Xbox 360 wireless controller on Amazon for $36.99

Is it worth saving $17.90 and attempting the modification yourself?  Probably not, if the pre done one is done correctly and the person actually sends it.  The once concern I have though is that the original Xbox 360 buttons are smooth rounded plastic, which you would be replacing with 9mm brass which has a fairly square edge on it.  I could see my thumb being worn raw and developing a classic NES blister… which would be cool to reminisce over for a minute, but then would be annoying.

Thoughts?  Have any of you guys done this mod?

The gun store guys went all “Tactical Affliction” on their bumpfire stock:

If you don’t know what Affliction clothing looks like, google it.  That bottom foregrip does really seem to help with the control of it.  The muzzle rise he was getting on the first few shots probably sent them over the berm though which is never good.  Unless you’re a seasoned bumpfire pro, those kind of safety ricks are always there with or without a stock like they built.

The hardest rapper the internet has seen, since the guys that did gunshots on the beat:

A notable similarity is that “gunshots on the beat” and this were both filmed in basements.   At 273k views for this video and 478k views for gunshots on the beat…note to self about basement rap success possibility.  The Red Ryder BB Gun and handgun are obviously a huge part of what make the song hard.  Other rappers and haters just don’t like taking chances messing with guys that have air powered weaponry.  It’s just not worth the risk.

Everything from the snotty nose, to the geeky kid that doesn’t say anything.. this video is clutch.

Some killer lines too “I could beat you up / if you had 1000 knives / even if you have infinity knives / i’d punch you up into the air like a kite

The gun store guys are at it again with the conversions:

If you remember a few weeks ago I posted the $169 .40 to 10mm Handgun Hi-Point Conversion they did.  This Carbine seems to run every bit as well.

If you need a carbine and don’t want to break the bank this might be a good option.  Maybe it’s the price point, but something makes me uneasy about modifying $169-$315 guns to shoot higher pressure rounds.  The gun store guys are known for their hi-point torture tests, which proves they are very resilient.  I just don’t know if I can get over that in my mind though.

Thoughts?

New ENDO project: Design 30 round Barrett .50 BMG box magazine to facilitate longer shoulder firing sessions.

I’ve never shot that particular .50, but I’m assuming 10 rounds back to back is far from pleasant.

Note that in the screenshot (0:10) he initially was tracking a plane or a police helicopter to shoot down, but then he thought of his family and his conscience got the best of him.

Anyone ever done this?
