I always get a kick out of when people flip out over stuff like this:

In the coming days, Belcher’s actions will be analyzed through the lens of concussions and head injuries. Who knows? Maybe brain damage triggered his violent overreaction to a fight with his girlfriend. What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

You can read Jason Whitlock’s article over at FoxSports.

This post was going to be alternately titled “One Nobody Quotes Another – People Flip Out” because I have no idea who either of the people are, nor do I even care slightly what their stance on gun control is.  That said, sports also isn’t on my radar so these two might be sports knowledge gods for all I know.   Really though, if that’s what Jason Whitlock “believes” then let him believe that.  If he is that stupid to think that a 6’2″ 228 lb. linebacker would have any trouble killing someone with even his bare hands if he wanted to, then I think he needs more of a lesson in physics and anatomy than anything else.

I suppose the main issue though is that rather than remaining neutral in the tragedy  NBC now gets painted with a brush of “shoving gun control down our throats”.  

All I know is I really wanna know what Ja Rule has to say about this whole thing.  hahha

lovemywoods over at the Indiana Gun Owners forum conducted some tests, showing how back-splash and fragmentation could be deadly:

The testing rig:


Example results:

Spoiler Alert: Hardened steel (AR500) is the safest.

Check out the full thread over at INgunowners for lots of great pics and info.

Answering the question on every operator’s mind… How does the Glock handle maple syrup?

A word to the wise… stay out of maple syrup hot zones when you’re operating.

As ridiculous as the glock torture test videos mattv2099 makes, I enjoy every one of them.

I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

Thoughts?  Were you surprised maple syrup killed it?  Would the M&P pass the test? :P

A look at the futuristic looking Turkish shotgun:

To me it doesn’t look any more or less fun that your run of the mill Remington 870… I like the cool look though and surprisingly it even weighs a bit less than the Remington 870.  The 15 round total capacity is obviously quite awesome.

17:17 – I really don’t like the idea of the magazine being open to debris.  Sure it’s neat you can see what you have left.. but at what cost?

Seems like a lot of different parts and doors and hinges on this shotgun.

I don’t care much for the price either ~$1200

You can check out the UTAS website for more information on the UTS-15.  All the useful info seems to be in their pdf catalog.

In the end this just seems like one of those things CowwaDooty nerds will buy to impress their friends.

Thoughts?

Testing an AR-15 upper:

I don’t own anything by Larue Tactical (yet) but I’m told it’s really a notch or two above what you get from other manufacturers.  I don’t mind spending money if I’m going to get a better product, considering everyone and their grandma manufactures AR-15 receivers now.  Same goes for kydex holsters, everyone makes those now too I’m beginning to feel left out.

If you remember the A.R.M.S. vs Larue legal mess in 2009, this little “screw you” to A.R.M.S. was one of the reasons I fell in love with Larue Tactical in the first place.

There’s a good chance he didn’t lose that hand messing with ammo, but I don’t think I’ll take any chances:

3:20 – Firing test.  I’m actually very impressed how well they work.

4:40 – Shotgun Lawn Darts FTW!  Probably the most epic idea I’ve ever heard.

Thoughts?  Any of you ever try this?
