Their weak promo vid:

It’s no secret that I love Glock, but who the hell puts together these videos?  First of all the video’s target market is Law Enforcement, which I’m sure is a huge (but likely dwindling) part of Glock’s sales but there is obviously a larger population outside of law enforcement that carries. Since the end result of carrying is to stay alive (no matter your occupation) I don’t see why a video couldn’t be made that would appeal to both audiences.

Also, LOL at that “Glock gives me confidence to live my life” tagline still in use.  I wish I was at SHOT right now just so I could troll Glock and tell them I had ZERO confidence and was huddled up in the fetal position crying day and and day out in fear that bad guys would come get me… then I bought a S&W and that didn’t help.  I bought an AR-15 after that and still was an emotional wreck.  I got my Glock 17 though, and well… now I walk down the street with my head held high winking and girls, hi-fiving homeless dudes, and generally wreaking of confidence.  I got a raise at my job, met a supermodel, always score under par in golf, and they give me a discount whenever I go into JCrew.

Glock-LogoIn case you think the gun looks familiar, it’s just a G30SF frame with a G36 slide on it, and packs 10 rounds of .45 ACP.  WHeeeeeeeeeee. :/

Looks like 2013 isn’t the year of the Glock rifle. :(

Hickok45 takes a look:

FullClipI mentioned it before, but I really think people in general (and even the media) are getting better with the terminology.  We just have to get this “Assault Weapon” thing cleared up now because it’s embarrassing.

<– Shout out to Busta Rhymes and Xzibit with their related Academy Award caliber movie. With the tagline “Who needs cops when you have a…” LOL.

Keith Morgan from the West Virginia Citizens Defense League serves some old dude:

2:00 – “High action military with big clips, that’s not what our founders had in mind” – WTF is high action?  Are all the parts above the bore axis?  Big clips?  like 30 round stripper clips?

6:14 – LOL grenade launchers.   Pure gold… has even 1 murder been committed with an actual legal NFA 40mm grenade launcher on U.S. soil?

8:55 – “I don’t want my neighbor to have an AK-47 because the problem is people go nuts.”  Wow there’s a giant leap!  LOL what a burn Keith laid on him with the “projection” line.  Then the host shits his pants when Keith tells him that he’s armed.

I love how people continue to ask the question”Why does anyone need an ASSAULT RIFLE?”… and then when they don’t like the answer they are given, they just keep re-asking the same question.  Deal with it, the answer is never going to change.

chris-crocker-leave-rifles-aloneI don’t know who that host is, but I sure hope he doesn’t debate as a profession.

Thoughts?

Fate Of Destinee takes a look:

Fate-Of-DestineeNormally I don’t post reviews, or in general things I can’t make fun of, but as you know I DO like ENDO Apparel appearances.  In this particular video she’s making the AR-15 Picatinny Rail t-shirt look its best. 

I will comment that the SIRT does look like a good option for dry fire practice, but starting at $329 it doesn’t come cheap.  I just wish there were some interesting reactive targets on the market for laser guns like this (I know there are SOME… but I almost fell asleep even thinking about shooting that).  In my opinion the one major flaw in this system is that you want to know where your shots are going so you’re probably not focusing on the front site as much as you should be… ignoring the green laser flash completely.  How am I supposed to see where I hit when I’m dumping magazines mid-barrel-roll?  Get your shit together SIRT. :P

Is it just me, or would that be annoying that the trigger prepping red indicator laser is so low?  Maybe I’m misunderstanding the use of it though…

Thoughts?

Made of tactical, black, and infused with Z’s:

Tactical-Sleep-Mask

The reviews seem to be mixed… some say it’s the best thing ever, and some say it lets in too much light.  For only $10 over at Amazon it might be worth a try though if you’re in the market for something like this.

I for one much prefer pitch black, than even a bit of light in the room… but if I’m tired enough it really doesn’t matter.  Apparently operators in operations use these things, but I can not confirm that.

I’ll probably put mine on and hang upside down from the roof, field stripping my Glock over and over again while heavy metal music is on to try and distract me.  The usual gun blogger type ops…

Thoughts?  Anyone try this particular mask?
