An ENDO public service announcement regarding firearm related & tactical Halloween costumes:

Serious business guys.

I photoshopped the pictures, which were taken from S*T*A*R*S ( Students Teaching About Racism in Society), an anti-racism student group at Ohio university with seemingly nothing better to do than complain about Halloween costumes.  The original posters (seen here) show students of different ethnic backgrounds posing with pictures of costumes the group feels depict racial stereotypes.

Going to a party, or dressing up tonight?  If so, what are you going as?

Hat tip: Dad for the idea.

Thank me in the comments for letting you in on this deal:

For only $20 you can have your very own Voodoo Tactical single point sling from Sportsman’s Guide.

As you can see, when you attach it incorrectly to the rear standard sling strap loop on your weapon all hell will break loose.  You’ll get an automatic co-witness of your high-powered optic with your front sight, your flash hider will fall off, and your magazine will run away.

The fact that I haven’t yet bought and expensive camera and started calling myself a photographer kind of bothers me:

People can say what they want about how photography is so “tough”, but I’ve borrowed some expensive cameras in the past and I think this saying holds true:

Buy an expensive camera and you’re a photographer.  Buy a flute, and you own a flute.

I’m not saying taking pictures of bullets in flight, and fast birds from far away etc.. etc.. doesn’t take skill, because it definitely does.   Don’t even try to tell me that I could be dropped in a room with a few hundred thousand dollar car, some girls and some guns, equipped with ~$XXXX worth of camera and lenses and NOT come out with some sweet looking pictures.  

What a bunch of random tattoos on those girls.  Not my thing.. but I suppose “edgy” models can get a lot of work nowadays.

Who does she think she is… Obama?

I do like how USPS has awesome rates on shipping to FPOs and APOs though.

A record-low 26% of Americans favor a legal ban on the possession of handguns in the United States other than by police and other authorized people.

The results are based on Gallup’s annual Crime poll, conducted Oct. 6-9. This year’s poll finds support for a variety of gun-control measures at historical lows, including the ban on handguns, which is Gallup’s longest continuing gun-control trend.

I was excited until I saw the poll was conducted only over a 3 day period, with a random sample of 1005 adults. :/  I took 3 statistics courses in university, but I squeaked by.  I’m pretty sure surveying 1005 people when the total population is 307 Million is an awfully small sample size.

You can check out the rest of the questions, and the results – HERE

Anyone care to weigh in?

Crazy Slingshot guy Joerg Sprave fires some marbles into ballistic gelatin:

Moral of the story, you don’t want to be shot with a marble fired from a slingshot.
