This is shady:

Investigators determined Ratliff had died of a single gunshot to the head and that his body been there for some time. Thomas said investigators found numerous guns in the area where Ratliff’s body was found.

FPS-RussiaThe article says police are treating the death as a homicide, but who knows maybe it will turn out to be a suicide?  Not that either one has a happy ending.

I didn’t think I knew who the guy was until I saw his twitter account, and then remembered posting a video on Maglite suppressors he did.

32 years old only… R.I.P. Keith.

These things are a lot more advanced than they were in ’98, but still every bit as creepy:

Furbyhahaha the slow motion slays me every time.  Seeing that Furby’s limp body fly off the shooting platform made my night.  The 2nd one turned to dust with c4 was awesome too.

Apparently M$ was quite irritated that this existed, piggy backing on the popularity of their HALO franchise:

Liberty-Ammunition-Halo-Point

 

Liberty Ammunition removed all mention of HALO from their website, rebranding the ammunition simply as “civil-defense” now.

If you wanted to get some for your collection though, Midway USA still has some 9mm +P for $20 per box.

There’s a huge article on this ammunition over at Kotaku you can check out for more information.

A guest post by Jesse Ingall from the blog Ideas, Thoughts and Happenings.

These firearms were brought in to be completely cleaned of rust and salt. They were flooded when the tide rose during Hurricane Sandy. They sat in salt water for a week or so.

I ran a steel brush through the barrels a bunch. Then I attempted to run a patch through one of the barrels and the pitting shredded the patch. Butt plate of a Mauser. Before and after:

Don’t let freedom’s door hit you in the ass on the way out:

MrColionNoir (or “MCN” as a lot of you that email me call him) was really riled up about this one… talking at seemingly 2x the normal rate haha.

You can check out my past posts on Piers to see him in action on his talkshow.

Piers-Morgan

If you’re into White House petitions (I’m not) you can sign one here that deals with deporting him hahah. 104,000 signatures *not too shabby face*

Rather than deporting him, I’d rather him stay in the U.S., but lose his celebrity status.  That way he’d have to find a way to deal with gun culture, or be mocked every waking minute of his existence.

*facepalm* “STANDARD Capacity” Cabelas… S T A N D A R D.  I hate it when people use terms used by the anti gun crowd, outside of the context of a joke.
