Gunplay, comedy, the mom from Weeds… count me in!
Awesome video, but I don’t think it is a very effective way to promote their service.
The message of the video is that “You don’t need a gun to protect your kids” from child predator scumbags. First of all, like I mentioned in previous posts I do not give a shit about the lives of murderers, rapists, child predators, etc… so saying you don’t need to shoot them, and that you should instead sign up for an email notification service that AmberWatch provides, and that will protect you kids seriously makes me ROFL. I say shoot them all the first time they do something that makes them a danger to society.
Riddle me this… so you get an “alert” from AmberWatch which says that a man in a fake icecream truck tried to abduct 2 girls on the other side of the city where your son or daughter is. What happens next? Does batman work for Amberwatch? Or do you drop everything you are doing and race through traffic at 80mph frantically trying to find your kid. All i’m saying is that their business plan seems to have some holes in it. Another big one being the fact that it appears that anyone can submit an “Event” to their website. Is there any quality control? The main AmberWatch foundation website says that the alerts are “Vetted And Authenticated by the AmberWatch foundation”, but I really don’t see how. Do they know where every danger to your child is, but are just waiting for someone to lodge a complaint? I doubt it.
All that said… if I were a parent I probably would sign up for the service, but it would be supplementary to my gun… not instead of it.

One last thing… I hope no one sees that video and trys shooting dual guns in the air. Not a great idea considering you have no idea where those bullets are ending up.

I don’t have an iPhone. Hell, I don’t even currently have a cellphone of any type… but this game looks pretty cool; It’s called Eliminate: GunRange:
For aiming, it takes advantage of the gyroscope in the iPhone 4, in addition to the new higher resolution screen. Apparently it will not work on the previous iPhones because of that.
Some of the other features:
- 12 high fidelity weapons from the arsenals of today’s elite militaries
- 144 target-shooting challenges set in three different HD firing ranges
- Win medals and compare your results with others on global leaderboards
You can buy it for 99 cents – HERE
A similar (or the same?) MAC-11 M11A1 modification to accept Glock magazines which I blogged about back in March is up for sale on Gunbroker:
Link to auction – http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=175724611
The minimum bid is $5479, which seems steep to me. I have no idea how much those things are worth, but I think id rather have a few other guns than that one. It has been re-listed on Gunbroker a lot of times.

A 21st century boot for high-speed operators. The lightweight Nike SFB Men’s Boot was engineered to the specifications and needs of global first responder professionals, including: military, rescue and law enforcement. As the lightest, fastest-drying, highest mobility performance boot we’ve ever made, the SFB offers superior comfort for extended wear, straight out of the box.
Just high-speed operators Nike? Not high-speed low drag operators that are in the primary all the time slaying bodies? …Or is that implied?
It seriously blows my mind that only ~37,000 people have seen the following video I quoted in the previous paragraph:
Probably one of my favorite videos on youtube.
But I digress…
Those Nike boots actually look pretty nice. If they are as comfortable and as well made as their shoes sure they will be a huge hit. For urban use though, i’ll be sticking with my usual white Air Force 1s.
The Special Forces Boot is available in three flavors:
