Bear spray, pulling down the robbers pants, giving him kidney shots, and the store owners wife kicking him in the head seemed to work.  Personally i’d rather see robbers dead, but maybe I’m just cold?

I applaud those two.  Stuff like this always worries me when it’s so highly publicized though…. doesn’t anyone worry about retaliation?

Thoughts?

MrColionNoir has some thoughts on the topic:

Get a good holster.. end of discussion.  If you have a shitty holster then I would actually recommend carrying without a round in the chamber… because you are attempting to save $40-60 on something you definitely shouldn’t be skimping on.

LOL at 1:04!  hahah that was great.

If you like his Run Guns t-shirt it can be bought over at ENDO Apparel.  I like his Keep Calm And Carry One reference at the end too… subtle.

Thoughts?  Are any of you guys into Israeli carry (keeping the chamber empty until you rack the slide like a ninja)? Or is everyone in agreement that an unloaded gun is a useless club?

The “Number Two” holster:

I don’t know what kind of magical clean public bathrooms the inventors of this “system” visit… but the ones I go in I am tempted to burn my shoes after I exit.  If I had one of those Men In Black things I could use to erase my memory after some bathroom visits, I’d be all over that too.

I would not even consider ever touching anything again that hung off the back of a toilet, the grab bar, or the peg on the door.  What ever happened to just maintaining outward tension with your knees so the gun didn’t hit the ground?

If your weapon is causing you problems when you visit the bathroom, and you’re in to carrying stuff around that has been in contact with countless filthy bathrooms, go spend $20 of your hard earned money quickly over at the Number 2 Holster website.

Does anyone actually think this is a good idea?  Maybe I’m just a wimp when it comes to tolerating poop germs.

Russian accent getting progressively worse:

That 76mm round is a beast. When he started jamming that potato in I was like “wtf?”… It wasn’t impressive at all, he should have stuck to the 76mm.

He’s definitely on the payroll for the World Of Tanks video game.  He shoe-horned a few mentions of that in the last two videos.  At the end of the video is says they let him borrow the tanks.   Why would a video game company own tanks?  Seems to me like something you’d just rent or borrow to make the models accurate, unless they are rolling in the dough.

If you want to check out FPS Russia’s previous escapades in the smaller M5 Stewart tank check it out here.

I would have liked to see the targets moved back further.  The car and that hut didn’t even look like they were 50 yards away.

Thoughts?

Ballistics apps for the iphone I can stomach… this just looks retarded:

I’m really at a loss for words with this one… It would absolutely make my day if I ever saw someone using any of those setups in real life.

Isn’t the whole point of night vision in special ops to also remain hidden in the darkness while you’re scoping things out?  How’s that going to work with a big display screen lighting everything up?  Even on the lowest brightness, those screens are still plenty bright when in the dark.  Is the point of using a screen rather then the regular eye piece so that 5 guys can be huddled around it at once?  If not, what is the point?  There is a lot of extra bulk, especially on the ipad example in the pic… but i’m thinking that particular setup might be for a tri-pod or vehicle application.

The eye-pieces on those things must be pretty strong if they can take mounting like that and resist a decent amount of shock.

I thought there was a chance this might just be a troll,  mainly because the Special Operations Apps website looks suspect and doesn’t have any real info on it.  Some more digging though, which lead me to US Night Vision where they sell the iPhone mount and iPad mount for $269 and $499 respectively. *facepalm*

It will be nice if/when night vision cameras are mirrorless someday.  This is one piece of technology that looks like it’s stuck back in the 90s.

A new gun range opening this summer in Lewisville, Texas, will have two rooms available for hosting children’s birthday parties. Owner David Prince tells WFAA that the Eagle Gun Range will be available for children as young as eight years old.

Why not, right?  As long as the safety measures are as good as they make them sound in the video then I really don’t see the down side.

I’m assuming these kids won’t be shooting .50 BMGs and Deagles… but I could be wrong.

I just know some little shithead troll is going to show up with a Trayvon Martin target and it will be all over the news.

Thoughts? Do you think guns should be separate from a “party” atmosphere, regardless how much supervision there is?
