Kanye West rocking the new gear before it his the shelves:

From high end French fashion house Balmain. Reportedly selling for $1345, although not listed in the e-boutique (store) on their website yet.

The shape is too “crayon like” to be like any rifle bullets I’ve seen.  I know it’s a casting, but they could have at least made the conical profile of the bullet a bit more convex.

If you clicked on the above Balmain link and were like “WTF?  Rich people buy clothes from here?  This site sucks.” … I’ll let you in on a little something.  With the exception of the companies under the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) umbrella and a few others, the more upscale you’re brand is, the shittier your website has to be.  It needs to look like it was made by junior high kids working on early Apple desktops, and using music, flash animation and transitions are mandatory. *shrug* I don’t make the rules.  Off the top of my head, another hilarious example is Maison Martin Margiela if you want to check it out.

Back to the belt… would I wear it?  Nah, looks too “Hot Topic” goth for me.  I do like the idea of anything gun related making its way into high fashion though.

Thoughts?  Any of your reloaders/belt makers gearing up to hit Etsy and make a killing with some Balmain inspired bullet belts? :P

Exposing criminals in Charleston South Carolina, who are too stupid to keep their business off the internet:

You’ve got to check out the whole Charleston Thug Life website, it’s priceless.

To summarize, you’ll see a lot of guns pointed at cameras, stacks of money, drugs, gang tattoos, gang signs, and shitty looking houses.

I’m not sure why the police aren’t already trolling Facebook for intel on a daily basis.  Heck, I bet Facebook gives any police department that asks the proverbial keys to the castle.  Although i’m happy to see sites like Charleston Thug Life exist, part of me believes we would be better off if these criminals were not publicly called out, but instead silently stalked by the police until there is enough intel to bring them in.

Side note: It must take hard work and dedication to spell everything so retarded.  Reading some of the things those criminals wrote on Facebook makes my head hurt.

Thoughts?

Shooting cars, hit and runs, and general assholeishness:

These guys give a bad name to operators everywhere.  I know it’s got to suck to be in iraq, or any other shitty country over there… but seriously if you can’t stand treating the general public with respect and saving your anger for actual enemies then quit your job right now.

Maybe past incidents such as that Fallujah bridge burning and hanging of 4 Blackwater employees in 2004 wouldn’t have happened if they didn’t treat their people like garbage all the time?   I’m saying “maybe”…

The way I look at it is you reap what you sow.

Yesterday’s bonus 24 hour 5.11 Tactical giveaway was for a pair of sweet sunglasses and a carry case.

The random number generator over at Random.org says this person is best suited to look like an operator in these new shades:

#55359 – NikonMikon

And his entry comment:

block the brightness of the sun. (lol)

Congrats NikonMikon.  I’ll be contacting you shortly for your name/address.

There was a good mix of funny comments when you guys completed the sentence “I wear sunglasses to…”.  A lot of the ones I saw and laughed at had to do with either discreetly checking out girls, or taking your sunglasses off at Miami crime scenes before saying something witty.  Awesome stuff guys LOL.

Thanks again 5.11 Tactical!  You know who to come to next time you want to do some more giveaways.

Not sure if the interviewer asked Heathcliff Huxtable… or if he just offered his 2 cents up but here it is:

“We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch,” Cosby said in his first public remarks about the case.

“Without a gun, I don’t see Mr. Zimmerman approaching Trayvon by himself,” he added. “The power-of-the-gun mentality had him unafraid to confront someone. Even police call for backup in similar situations.”

“When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody,” Cosby said.

A show of hands if you read the quotes in Bill Cosbys voice?  LOL I did.

I find the most interesting line being the one about carrying a gun means that you are out to harm or kill somebody.  If he would have specified “killing scumbags that try to harm you or your family” I would have agreed, but his vague statement even encompasses police officers. Surely Bill Cosby doesn’t have a problem with police officers carrying guns.  It’s just the rest of us that aren’t responsible enough. *eye roll*

Next time when a white person gets shot, i’m emailing all major news papers and begging them to get Pauly Shore’s opinion. Cause you know… finding out what celebrities think about a topic they know nothing about is important.

Thoughts?
