The G26 and other subcompact Glocks don’t currently come with accessory rails… so the only option is to DIY:

The initial cuts were done with a Dremel tool and emery cutting wheel, then refined with an x-acto knife and sand paper.

You can check out the full DIY write-up over at GlockTalk, and you’ll be strapping stupid lasers and knives on your subcompact glock in no time.

As much as I like Glocks, I don’t miss my G26.  The subcompacts just aren’t for me… I realized I’m more of a compact and fullsize guy.

Thoughts?  Anyone plan on doing this mod?

The system holds an M4,Shotgun and handgun in your large vehicle:

Some issues I have with the product:

  • It’s aluminum.  Yea I know it’s to save weight, but that’s at the cost of having easy as butter to break into.
  • The lock mechanism looks weak.  Seriously, an L-bracket secured by two screws?
  • It opens up only in the direction of the driver, creating a barrier to the passenger.  I think i’d rather have it open forward, so the passenger could quickly get a gun too.
  • The price.  For $2400 I wish it at least came with an AR500 steel plate in the lid so that a person could take cover behind it if they got ambushed.
  • It’s tied into your factory door locks.  So does that maen if a thief smashes the window and hits the unlock button he can have all your firearms?

As far as my last gripe goes, I know it’s not meant to be a safe… but it very well could be one if it the product was done properly and at least provide the thief with some barriers to entry.  Lastly it appears their target market for this product is law enforcement, not the regular guy.  I don’t know how much of a problem law enforcement has with vehicle weapon theft, but i’m sure the issue is not that widespread considering how stupid someone would have to be to do that.

Check out the Console Bunker website for more information.

Wow, there’s a lot of place to hide things:

$3500 for the unit in the video.  The design in the video isn’t really my style, but Q-Line Design will customize the bookcase to your dimensions and needs with an 8 week lead time.

Even if you’re not using it to hide stuff from criminals, it’s still an incredible use of space.  Something like this would be especially great for a small apartment.

An advanced new polymer .22 LR pistol that can be deployed a number of different ways:

Yea the video is long and drawn out, but it shows a bunch of cool renders as examples. And you thought the Glock was a “brick”? hahah:

What are those posts sticking out of the front of the gun by the barrel for?

I really like the idea, and the cool futuristic look.  I’ll reserve any other judgement for when I see a production model, or find out more details about it.  The ZiP factory website is useless right now, and shows a 28 day countdown.  I’m assuming there will be some useful info on there come launch date.  I still fail to see why companies do this so far in advance… but to each their own.

It doesn’t appear to take 10/22 mags, which isn’t the be all end all for me, but that would be nice.  Who knows though, ZiP could very well have figured out something way better?

Triggers like the one on the ZiP are normally horrendous, but we can wait and see.

Too much branding and other writing all over the gun… I really hope they lose that on the production model.

MSRP is $200 – $219!  I like that.  I want the survival rifle configuration.

I hate vague teasers, but here you go:

Perhaps it’s a radio controlled shotgun shell vehicle like the one that gets some air time toward the end of the video? (see above)  Maybe that vehicle is full of 5 lbs of triple-aught buckshot and can be fired via the remote control?  Yea that’s definitely what it is… case closed.

Thoughts?

Buck Yeager has a list for us:

The List: The Talisman, The Collector, The Hobbyist, The Competitor, The Gun Fighter, The Martial Artist

Another normal video from Yeager, maybe someone recently kicked his ass and took him down a notch? I kid I kid.  I’ve seen similar lists online, so I was glad to hear him not boasting about inventing this like he did for the Rules Of Gunfighting.

I was surprised to not see an I Wish A MotherF**ker Would type gun owner on there.

Thoughts?
