On the most recent episode (Season 5, Episode 14) of one of my favorite shows:

Leonard and Penny go on a date to the shooting range. Penny is ecstatic that Leonard took her to the range, and there is mention how she was a fan of shooting as a kid.   Before they even get started Leonard ND’s into his foot.  Good times…. good times…  Saftey Nazis will be happy to see that at least they had ear and eye pro on.

“I play a lot of Grand Theft Auto.  I think I know how to handle a gat.” -Leonard

Good to see that even though he shot himself in the foot, guns were not villainized.

The episode is on Amazon instant video if you want to watch it.  It’s $2 normally, but I believe it’s free to watch if you have Amazon Prime.

Thoughts?

This looks like it has potential:

In this gritty documentary, everyday citizens with a license to carry concealed firearms undergo ECQB Force on Force training, a form of specialty weapons training designed to enhance realism. In this unique form of training, students participate in scenarios which replicate potentially deadly force situations, in addition to replicating the stress and neurological responses experienced during actual life-threatening events.

I’ll definitely watch the full documentary whenever it comes out.  Force-on-force training interests me when it’s realistic.  This one doesn’t appear to have bamboo logs and lawn chairs, so things are already looking up for it.

I’m not too sure what’s going on at 1:04 in the video.   It looks to me like the concealed carrier, got out of his truck and entered a room to shoot someone in the back.  Isn’t that considered murder?

1:16 – This lady has an insatiable blood lust! 😛  Look at that smirk when she talks about not knowing when it’s ok to take a life.

I’m sure some of you guys that are police have done a lot of this type of training.  I can see a training school for such a niche doing quite well for those that are bored with the standard shooting range targets and scenarios.

Last week I gave away 12 copies of Philip Mulivor’s book Proclaiming Liberty.

Congrats to those that won! Philip will mail your books out within the next couple days.  I still have not heard back from 3 people with their addresses, but i’m going to email them all again and give it a few days.  If I still haven’t heard back in a week from when I first emailed them i’ll just draw new people.

In my opinion if you ever plan on using a 2nd amendment quote in conversation or something you’re writing this book should be a requirement.   Searches for quotes on the internet is hilarious sometime, and often end up looking like some of the contest entry comments you guys were leaving:

The comment left by Nate sticks in my mind:

“The problem with internet quotes is that you cant always depend on their accuracy” -Abraham Lincoln, 1864

I just want to thank Philip again for writing such a useful book, and for providing them for the contest.

If you didn’t win you can still buy the paperback for 12.95 or Kindle edition for $3.95.

 €70,000 to fund the live action portion of the film.  There was no money left for visual effects so the director did them all for free over a 6 month period:

A British fighter pilot pursues the german ace that shot down his friend across sky and country… with murder in mind. But he discovers it’s not so easy to kill a man when you have to look them in the eye.

You can read more about the movie over at the website – HERE

€70,000 converts to $110,000 USD today which seems like a lot of money to me for a 9 minute movie.   They did a nice job on it though.

I’m all for safe storage, but this is a bit ridiculous:

With 6 locks, that revolver isn’t going to be randomly killing anyone by itself any time soon.  Someone needs to lock those keys up in 6 different safety deposit boxes just to make sure… you can never be too safe.

Isn’t that one of those revolvers with a ceramic frame that can go through airport metal detectors?

I can’t believe how real games look now.  A lot of gun play in this trailer:

Even the mucus on that exposed brain type creature at around 1:10 looks juicy.   Blows my mind…  I don’t know what actual game play will look like in this, but i’m sure it will be pretty good consider how awesome other new games are.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Triple Impact comes out March 20th, 2012 for xbox360 and PS3.

You can preorder it for $60 – HERE

Anyone looking forward to this game?
