This is a whole other level of nasty:

From the same guy who brought us the red Jello And scrambled egg Glock Torture tests.

A bit of an initial hiccup, but then the rest of that magazine dump was smooth as pudding.

Thoughts?  Are you a bit wary of operating in pudding related operational environments after seeing this video?

When I thought the FPS beat down was going to be the highlight of this video, I was wrong:

Oh Lawd!  Rap! Dual brand Deagles! A chicken on his crotch? wtf? haha it gets worse though:

The point of the video was to promote a Kickstarter campaign for a FPS Russia video game.  I can’t say I was at all optimistic, and when I clicked the link my biggest fears came true.  It looks lame as hell… like some sort of weak-ass Contra knockoff.  Not cool. FPS Corporate gonna keep pimpin corporations as long as it pays.

As I’m writing this post I see he has already raised $6354 out of the $51377 goal.  People seem more than willing to throw money at this guy, so I’m sure that $51k goal will be far surpassed.  Further down on the Kickstarter campaign page it details what he will spend the money on if the campaign reaches different levels above the original goal.

Thoughts?  Are you going to throw $10 his way?

If you’re not, Handi-Racker it my friend:

Instructions:

  1. Place the Handi-Racker over the sight at the front of the slide.
  2. Make sure you have a secure connection between the Handi-Racker and the sight/slide.
  3. Push the grip forward or push the Handi-Racker rearward.
  4. Release pressure from the Handi-Racker, allowing the recoil spring to drive the slide forward
  5. Remove Handi-Racker from the slide

You can check out a full review and more pictures over at Average Joes Handgun Reviews.

Check out the Handi-Racker website, where you can purchase one for $20.  It comes in small, medium, and large.  No word on when you actually hit the checkout if that $20 will be adjusted for inflation, seeing as that website was obviously made in the 1990s.

Thoughts?  Know someone that could use it, or do you think the idea is dumb?

I remember seeing a few examples like this in physics:

Demonstrating the law of conservation of momentum with a M1 Garand.

I wonder if lots of publishers are getting pressured to swap them out for different examples?  Wouldn’t want to scare anyone.  If a police officer or a soldier was holding the gun it might be a little more acceptable, but still unnecessarily scary.  Probably better to use a non threatening cannon instead. haha

Thoughts?

Is the question which was given a comprehensive answer by Jon Davis, a former Marine Corps marksmanship instructor:

The reason is actually to help them aim faster by utilizing a technique known as “Flash Sight Picture”. 

I wouldn’t advise it though. I specialized in pistols and have fired these weapons thousands of times. That said, the thought has crossed my mind. The answer didn’t come to me until another coach (from the “hood”) gave me a good reason why this technique would be used. In practice it actually does utilize one very important sighting practice, but fails overall. This is a good idea in theory, but fails miserably in the actual execution.

Full explanation with diagrams over at Quora.

Thoughts?
