*Gasp* S&W didn’t invite me to the release? Shame on them. Here’s a Buck Yeager vid:
Pfffft whatevs S&W… you probably know I would have just unfavorably compared it to my beloved Glocks. Yea… at least that’s what i’ll tell myself so it doesn’t hurt so much inside. *sniff sniff*… *tear wipe*
Glock doesn’t have a single stack 9mm or .40 yet though, so good for S&W for making what people are asking for. I’m looking forward to handling and shooting it someday.
One of the more entertaining videos they have done lately. I know these are supposed to be short… but seriously we need some longer stuff Freddie. I believe their full length film “Video Game High School” should have been out by now from what they said in their updates. I know how it is when things come up and the date gets pushed back though.
As it says at the starting “prior tests were conducted in old style type laboratory conditions.”… as opposed to ridiculous staged ones:
The video takes until about 3:00 min to get going, but it’s worth it.
Forward roll! Basejumping! OPERATOR STATUS ACHIEVED.
ROFL I lost it at 4:17 when he shot an explosive target on the side of the mountain while in free fall. Screw the holster… just throw the Glock away into the water below and yank the ripcord.
OHhhhhh shit… underwater test sequence! Wait a minute, did he just shoot from underwater to a target on land? The dramatic rise out of the water and smooth donning of the sunglasses was a nice touch *slow clap*.
Tank Attack! If there’s one thing I hate, it’s when tanks chase me through fields. This operator is really into tossing his gun rather than just holstering it…. oh wait it’s for the sake of the “test”.
Did the tank kill the operator at the end? I guess we’ll never know… What we do know is that the Glock passed all those tests. No surprise there.
Well maybe not a battle rifle.. more like an “Impress People with all your disposable income” rifle:
You can check out more pics and info over at NEMO Arms. Damn I love the look of Titanium.
The barrel and a few other components are still stainless steel. Titanium is almost twice as heavy as Aluminum and way more difficult to machine. Like he said in the video, it’s to showcase their machining capabilities (and to no doubt get a buzz going around the internet).
NEMO arms will be at the NRA annual meeting today, so if you’re going you can check it out.
What? Black powder is explosive? Who would have thought…
Of course there’s the classic shaky camera, and no footage after the event. I think it’s safe to say the guy shooting filled his lungs white smoke at the very least, and possibly even got some bad burns in the process judging by the flames at around 0:06. No safety glasses on either… not ideal.
Has anyone else witnessed, or done something similar?
