After my statement “I feel like we are just one hurdle away form being able to pick up 100,000 round crates of Kirkland 5.56mm at 1990′s equivalent prices” in a previous costco related post, comes this:

$0.15 / round!

That was just sent to me by Michael Bakowski, one of my readers (and a Costco employee?).   Sadly it’s not real… YET. One can dream.

Thanks again Michael!

Also known as the Moe Szyslak special. Pretty funny that the Mosin would need to have the bolt manually cycled after every shot, but the AK is semi auto.  What kind of AK is that anyway?  An AKS-74U?

The scope is a nice touch too.  With absolutely zero cheek weld that thing has got to be very uncomfortable to fire.

I was skeptical when I saw the video title because I though those guys were going to be magically hitting the clay on every shot. They didn’t, so that was believable.

Police were ordered to have their firearms tapped and signed by their leaders to prevent them from firing during the New Year revelry. Firing of guns in the air to celebrate the coming of the New Year has led to numerous deaths from stray bullets in the past. (Source)

Like I always say.. tape only inconviences the honest.

Glock’s first handgun model was the Glock 17, a 40 x 53 mm high-explosive select-fire pistol with a magazine capacity of 24 rounds (which was unusually large at the time.) The handgun came with a scope capable of picking out moving targets against a static background with day or night thermal vision. Each high-explosive round (traditionally called, “grenades”) is capable of being detonated upon reaching a preset range, giving it the ability to spray shrapnel on targets regardless of cover. A Glock 17 is capable of demolishing a Humvee with a single three-round burst.

The whole entry is pretty funny… read it – HERE
