Checkmate.  *loads king into AR-15*:

This chess set is yet another one of a kind item. I dare say this chess board may survive a nuclear blast! The board is constructed from 3/16 inch flat and 1/2 inch square pure solid hot rolled steel. Each board square is individually cut, prepped, welded to the steel frame. The board is signed and dated. Simple in design, but carefully crafted. The light squares are polished natural steel. The dark squares are hand painted black. The entire set is coated with clear polyurethane. The pieces are made using .223 caliber bullet shell casings, decorated with cuts, slashes, curls and bends. The light side pieces are set on red oak mounts,  using steel cased shells and the dark side pieces are mounted on black walnut, using brass cased shells.

If it wasn’t $510, I would have bought it before I blogged about it. :P

In the comments JamesF gives us a pic of his Marine 0311 Rifleman buddy’s homemade set in Afghanistan:

Awesome… I like how the royalty are .50s, and rooks are m203 shells.

On May 3rd, download “Escalation”, the second Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack, to play as the zombie-killing dream-team of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, Michael Rooker, and Danny Trejo against a new and unnerving zombie menace. Set in a mysterious, ice-covered, remote Siberian island and inspired by legendary writer and director George A. Romero, a group of four fearless explorers fight for their lives amidst an army of bloodthirsty Soviet zombies.

SMG? Danny Trejo? Soviet Zombies? Even with my limited amount of free time, sometimes I wonder why I don’t own a game system.

Walmart announced this week that it is bringing firearms back to hundreds of stores, meaning almost half of the retailer’s 3,600 locations will sell shotguns and rifles. These will be both in rural stores, but also in slightly more urban locations.

Full Story – HERE

I buy a lot of ammo from walmart because it’s the cheapest around.  I’d like to see them start carrying handguns in all the stores, I bet they could leverage a sick deal on Glocks.

Neighbors are seeking an apology from Camden police after a Friday night incident in which they say a dog was shot by officers who were carelessly firing on a street crowded with children.

The dog was killed around 9 p.m. Friday after officers responded to calls of a fight between teenagers in the Baldwin Run neighborhood of the city’s Rosedale section.

But neighbors are also concerned by what they said is an excessive use of force after bullet holes were found sprayed around the neighborhood. Shots went through through the walls and windows of a home four houses away and punched holes in several vehicles parked in nearby driveways.

Neighbors said they counted 33 rounds of bullets based on the police investigation on Saturday.

  1. There was a wandering dog, the police showed up
  2. The dog was a pitbull
  3. It’s name was capone
  4. Camden NJ is so gangsta that not even google street view goes there.

The conclusion is unsurprising.  Chances are the police are gonna get away with this one. Sad…

How were the police able to get that many shots off so quickly?  Are they using high capacity assault clips now? :P

A great story about how fellow gun blogger Natalie Foster got into guns.

I’ve been following her blog for a while now, and I really enjoy it.   And yes, I can still pee standing up.

Make sure you check her out over at GirlsGuideToGuns.com

On a related note, I’ve noticed a significant increase in the number of women following my blog on facebook! That’s good to see, as for quite a while after I started that page it was primarily a sausage fest.

Britain does have talent, but they obviously don’t have anyone internet savvy working for them seeing as they disabled embedding of the video.

Damn he’s good.  Someone needs to get that guy a gun, and some agents to chase after him.
