How to avoid getting M1 thumb:

I hear a lot of people talk about putting clips in their Glocks too.  I haven’t figured out how to do that yet, but I wonder if there is such thing as “Glock thumb”?

Thoughts?  Any of you guys ever had M1 thumb?

Introducing NRA News’ three newest commentators:

NRA-News-Three-New-CommentatorsI thought the video was alright.  I haven’t heard of the operator (Dom Raso) before today, but he seems alright even though his “pins” on Pinterest are astonishingly feminine (I ain’t mad at it though, do your thing bro).  I tried to research the operations that he operated in as a SEAL, but couldn’t come up with anything.  The girl is of course is the ever charming Natalie Foster from Girl’s Guide To Guns.

Thoughts?

Sweet, the full documentary is finally out:

Besides the erroneous use of “ammunition clips” and “high capacity magazines”, the documentary is really awesome.  If you’ve been keeping up with my past posts on Defense Distributed and Cody Wilson a lot of it probably isn’t new to you.

Interesting comments about kids likely being the first to print out firearms.  I can definitely see that as a concern, but with a hands-off approach to parenting there are a whole load other concerns that can be just as dangerous to an individual or a group.

Defense-Distributed-3D-Printed-AR15-LowerI mentioned to Cody on twitter that I hope they look into getting a 3D printer that can print metals, like the type Shapeways has.  I have a few prototypes of things I had made in stainless steel and they are incredible.

MrColionNoir‘s 2nd video for NRA News:

Well done video as expected.  You can tell they really told him to crank the emphasis up to 11 on certain points, which isn’t a bad thing but definitely very noticeable.

I really hope pro-gun people make their anti-gun friends and family watch vids like this.  To me that is the whole point… we already know all this stuff, others who are blind or uneducated to the facts need to be the ones watching.

Make sure to check out the first video about political ignorance too if you haven’t already seen it.

Mattv2099 does his thang for a Hickok45 parody:

He hit on a lot of the good standard Hickok45’isms.  Should have done a 1000 yard shot with a subcompact, and said “Life is good.” at the end of the vid though.

Mattv2099-OperatorThe parody was done for a contest Hickok45 is running.  Looks like Matt has the only entry so far, but I’m sure there will be others considering the contest is only one day old.

$57.50 over at KACgear, and you get that slick pouch with it as well.  Make sure you decide how many of these you need on your tactical drinking load-out based on a simple formula using your tolerance for alcohol, and the level of good of times you want to have.
