If you haven’t done this… bro do you even operate?

Qualifications: Thick operator beards.

Buck Yeager talked about this in the past too, so I’m not surprised at the results.  Decent thing to know I suppose, even though most of you will probably not be in a hand to hand gun tussle with someone holding a loaded handgun.  Notice I said “most of YOU”… yea I operate operationally in operations so I do this kind of thing on the reg, it’s really not even a thing anymore.

Text your mom while you’re double tapping tangos; tell her you might be late for supper:

Inteliscope-main

June pre-order for $70 over at Inteliscopes.

Meh I’m not a fan, I’m sure they will sell like hotcakes though.  Even if I owned an iPhone you wouldn’t find me throwing one of these on my AR-15.  I don’t need something 4.5″ / 4.87″ wide (iPhone 4s/5) with a plastic hood increasing my drag when I operate in operations.  Not as wide obviously if you put in it portrait mode, but then you might as well strap a water ski to the top of your AR-15 because you just added lots of height.  If you’re not about drag reduction then what are you about cousin?

Cowwadoody nerds are going to love the video recording capabilities.  So many hunting head shots going up on vine and youtube… I can see it now.

Nothing like trading in the few thousand dollar Nightforce for a screen with digital zoom.  There are some more pictures and video up on the Intelliscope Facebook page, but no real life close look at it that I could see… just a lot of renders and tv quality video from a distance.

InteliscopeI can’t wait until some newb throws this on a .50, puts his face real close and the metaphorical hand of Steve Jobs slaps the shooter across the face for embarrassing shooters and iPhone users simultaneously.

At the end of the day, all the power to this company for making a product for one of the most popular smartphones which people are bound to get at least the $70 sticker price worth of enjoyment out of.

Considering the camera is off far to the one side, I wonder how you properly zero?

If I ever do get an opportunity to try this thing out, you better believe I’m going to be streaming some Chief Keef, dumping mags until the barrel droops like a wet noodle.

Do you wear tights and struggle with your sexuality? If not, and you hunt with a bow you’re going to need these:

Simply secure your .38 or .357 Magnum round into the Bow-Mag Arrowhead cylinder, turn until the casing threads lock in place, then attach to your standard arrow shaft or crossbow bolt.

OOOoooooooh yeahhhhhhh that’s what I’m talking about.  When does the .50 BMG version come out?

Bow-Mag-Rac-Em-BackI really hope these get on the news from being used in a home defense situation some day.  That would be awesome.

You can pick up a 6 pack of Bow-Mags for $40 over at Rac-Em-Bac.  The tips are not reusable, so keep that in mind.

Using it to fish for crimes.  AmidsTheNoise always has interesting things to say:

AmidstTheNoise-YouTubeCollecting DNA from people who have been ARRESTED, not even convicted… that’s shady.  Imagine all the “arrests” that will be happening just to get DNA when some detective has a hunch, or like AmidsTheNoise says near the end of the video to just have a database of innocent people’s DNA.

Interesting product.  Awesome video:

From the same guy that brought us the epic Dollar Shave Club video.  hahahah @ him running with the rifle at 0:56.  That guy’s got jokes…

Dollar-Shave-Club-Butt-WipesYou can read more about One Wipe Charlies over at the website.  40 wipes for $4 doesn’t seem bad for home emergencies.  I love how it says they smell like peppermint and they are made from “flushable & biodegradable viscose rayon”.  I have an American Apparel t-shirt made from viscose rayon that is soft as hell… I’m just thinking out loud here but maybe I should sacrifice it first and see how I like the feel and possibly save myself $4.  Wait… the shirt is worth more than $4 though scratch that. ;)

If you’re a Vigilant Spectre member, and/or operating above your skill level:

1:16 is where you need to start watching.  WTF?!  That is the kind of thing that just isn’t cool.  When Vigilant Spectre himself pointed out casually that he was “muzzled for like 20 minutes” the other guy laughed it off and was like “That’s the point.  Transitioning right?”.   Transitioning to the grave if you keep shit like that up.

Vigilant-Spectre-Victorias-SecretUgh.  You would not find me sticking around anywhere where firearm safety is that much of a laughing matter.  Push-ups and it’s OK!

I find it funny to think these guys have actual written “Standard Operating Procedures” they apparently follow… but here is the critique of what happened according to Vigilant Spectre:

Typically when there is a transition involved there are processes (actual written SOPs) in place to mitigate potential NDs, because its unavoidable when operating in 360 degrees that people are going to get swept:

“..The weapon has either been run dry and verified cold by the user, or the weapon has been safed. ”

I watched this multiple times in 300x slow motion and neither of these occurred.

Furthermore, it is also VSO standard operating procedure to “…maintain positive visual control of the weapon system any time manipulation of the weapon system occurs.”
This also did not occur, i.e. hand on receiver of shotgun while behind the back, pointed at buddy’s face.
There was certainly some falconry going on here and it will be addressed.

Thoughts?
