Have a good talk with your AK-47, AR-15, SKS, and shotgun… assure them it will be alright:

As you probably gathered I don’t care much for TAPCO.  I know a few guys that love various accessories that they make.  Regardless of my thoughts, I see their logo on the website says “25 Years” on it so they must be doing something right.

You can check out the boilerplate style press release over at GearScout.

Thoughts? I wonder how much they paid?  Maybe TAPCO threatened to flood the market with a whole range of ugly Remington 700 stocks if Remington didn’t write a check? 😉

I really hope they rename the company to Tappington.  It will give TAPCO the sophistication it needs… like well groomed British cartoon bear that drinks tea with honey and eats scones on the reg.

AssCreed is a legit short name for Assassins Creed 3 right?

“We’re going to add the powder… seems like enough” hahaha famous last words *smh*

It’s funny how he doesn’t even tell his viewers he’s using binary explosive anymore… there’s going to be a lot of disappointed kids out there that watch his videos then go shooting for the first time.

I’ve never played Assassins Creed 3, but the graphics look pretty sweet.

The gun store guys have another gripe:

They go off on a few tangents as usual, but if you’re looking to put something on in the background then give it a listen.  14 minutes is just too long for a YouTube video if you ask me.  They should make these like 5 minutes max.

Thoughts?

Predator only had 3 beams… Laserlyte has 9:

Pretty cool how just because of the way the beam is split, the dot pattern tightens and opens up depending on distance to target just like the spread of a shotgun.

Available over at Laserlyte.  The Green laser version is $285 (Actually cheaper on Amazon – $250) and the Red laser version will be available in 2 months for $150 and will fit pistols and long guns.

Oh yeeaaaaaahhh.

Thoughts?  How many of you guys are going to pick one of these up? Pretty decent idea for home defense I would imagine, except all that light could might ruin your night vision.

The G26 and other subcompact Glocks don’t currently come with accessory rails… so the only option is to DIY:

The initial cuts were done with a Dremel tool and emery cutting wheel, then refined with an x-acto knife and sand paper.

You can check out the full DIY write-up over at GlockTalk, and you’ll be strapping stupid lasers and knives on your subcompact glock in no time.

As much as I like Glocks, I don’t miss my G26.  The subcompacts just aren’t for me… I realized I’m more of a compact and fullsize guy.

Thoughts?  Anyone plan on doing this mod?

The system holds an M4,Shotgun and handgun in your large vehicle:

Some issues I have with the product:

  • It’s aluminum.  Yea I know it’s to save weight, but that’s at the cost of having easy as butter to break into.
  • The lock mechanism looks weak.  Seriously, an L-bracket secured by two screws?
  • It opens up only in the direction of the driver, creating a barrier to the passenger.  I think i’d rather have it open forward, so the passenger could quickly get a gun too.
  • The price.  For $2400 I wish it at least came with an AR500 steel plate in the lid so that a person could take cover behind it if they got ambushed.
  • It’s tied into your factory door locks.  So does that maen if a thief smashes the window and hits the unlock button he can have all your firearms?

As far as my last gripe goes, I know it’s not meant to be a safe… but it very well could be one if it the product was done properly and at least provide the thief with some barriers to entry.  Lastly it appears their target market for this product is law enforcement, not the regular guy.  I don’t know how much of a problem law enforcement has with vehicle weapon theft, but i’m sure the issue is not that widespread considering how stupid someone would have to be to do that.

Check out the Console Bunker website for more information.

Thoughts?
