New show on the National Geographic channel that starts today (Feb. 13):

Lords of War brings you inside the intriguing world of historical weaponry as Sean Rich and his team of weapons experts travel across the country in search of the best in antique weapons and militaria. Journey through history as the guys assess, test, and auction the bounties of war.

The schedule and more info over at National Geographic.

Thoughts?  Someone watch this and report back!  I hope by tomorrow we’re not already calling it “Lords Of DERP”.

Joerg Sprave doesn’t play around:

8 barrels that fire pistol crossbow bolts.  “As you know I love weaponizing Black & Decker tools” hahahaha

Joerg-SpraveHe’s sure coming up with some interesting more complicated designs lately.

Even though he was fairly close, the accuracy looked quite deadly.  Ban assault slingshots!

I still think he could make a good living if someone refined his designs for and paid him royalties. Thoughts?

Ban water and balloons:

This just in… combining water and balloons creates an NFA item.  I heard a guy got busted last week for constructive intent just by having his kid’s birthday party balloons near the tap in the kitchen.  The ATF doesn’t play… except when they do, then they play hard.

That balloon on a stick assassination device is genius…. I love this guy.

I’m actually the most interested in seeing how it effects POI (point of impact), which he doesn’t show at all.  I’m sure it messes everything up, but I’d like to see the results regardless.  I imagine hollow points wouldn’t be ideal either because they would expand as they travelled through the water.

Thoughts?

Yep… truly a universal pattern:

CarniK-Con-YouTubeIf you’re new to these guys, watch AK-47 VS AR-15 – The Definitive Answer and laugh your ass off.

This also would have fit on my other blog MILcentric, but I knew it would get more exposure here.

Cue the comments about defacing the flag in 3…2….1…

Basically that’s what is going down there now:

Under the new policy, dispatchers will route 911 calls reporting non-criminal complaints or crimes in which no one is in imminent danger, such as some car thefts and simple assaults, to desk officers who will fill out police reports by phone. The new policy prohibits callers from insisting an officer be sent to the scene, as was allowed before.

Gun-Control-ChicagoHmmmm Chicago, a place where “gun control” thrives, yet this is all being done in the name of keeping homicides down.  Oh the irony!  Maybe if they empowered non-criminals that live there, as many resources wouldn’t have to be wasted.  I rather more clean-up crew jobs be created to hose criminal blood off walkways and pick up the bodies.

Thoughts?
