Bloomberg approved:

Hickok45 is the man.  I hope with all his YouTube money he buys a high speed slow motion camera eventually.  Slowing down footage from a regular camera just isn’t the same.

Rebel’s gonna explode:

The primary source for doctored ammunition has been the Syrian government, which mixes exploding cartridges with ordinary rounds on the black markets through which rebels acquire weapons, the commanders said.

Check out the full story over at the New York Times.

Interesting practice.  If this has been going on in all sorts of wars for as long as they say it has been, I wonder if there’s any risk shooting the military surplus ammo we all know and love?  My guess is not, considering I’m not hearing about someones AK or Mosin Nagant blowing up daily.  Kind of makes me uneasy though.

That dudes fingers are gnarly.  I’m guessing that giving someone the “middle finger” isn’t considered offensive in that part of the world, because if it is, that guy better watch who he waves that right hand at.

Thoughts?

This story is incredibly tragic, but the picture… well take a look:

I guess that’s one way to focus attention on the gun, and not the root of the problem (crazy people).

I’m actually kind of surprised the Double 1911, Double Deagle, and Double Glock haven’t just been the go-to choice of article graphics by journalists just to piss us off.

Thoughts?

The gun store guys have a gripe:

It’s pretty obvious where the conversation is going to go, just by reading the title… but if you need some background noise and want to hear some good (but obvious) points made check it out.

With a glow in the dark high capacity assault clip:

A night table gun perhaps?  Neat idea, I wonder how much the person paid?

I was skeptical when I hit play… but soon after was impressed:

The video started off with some jello-effect (rolling shutter) digital SLR filming by someone that couldn’t keep the camera still on a pan to save their life…. then came the old bait and switch… but in a good way! 

0:39 – Straight disrespected that hole which a coyote used to call home.

That .22LR brass ejection starting at 1:10… great shot.  I love seeing shock waves in the dust on the ground too.

Thoughts?  Anyone used this Star Targets brand of binary explosive?
