A night on the job for two gas station workers became violent when two men walked in, guns in hand. A wild shootout unfolded on camera, inside the very close quarters of the Lewis Street Market in Nashville, Tennessee.

Wow, I’m surprised he never got shot when he tried to initially grab the guys gun.  That was ballsy.

Iraqi Army veteran hey? Yea.. from what i’ve seen on youtube, and heard from people that looks about right.

ROANOKE, Va. — Both 911 calls reporting a man with a rifle at Valley View Mall in Roanoke were from security officers at the retail complex — one relaying a secondhand report, the other watching a 40-minute-old surveillance video, according to emergency call recordings. The first call, from a mall guard at 5:05 p.m. Monday, reported that another mall worker had seen a man with “a big assault rifle.”

The second call, at 5:37 p.m., was from a Macy’s loss prevention detective, who breathlessly told a police dispatcher, “It definitely was an assault rifle.” The calls sent dozens of city and state police swarming the mall and prompted an evacuation and a failed 10-hour search of the region’s largest shopping complex.

The man who was subject of the hunt came forward Tuesday and showed a city detective the black umbrella he had been carrying against Monday’s predicted rain.

Wow people are so scared for their lives they are even calling the cops on umbrellas.

I need to be careful not to wear black jeans to the mall, someone might think I have to assault rifles for legs like in that Tarantino movie Grindhouse.

Normally “inna woods” is reserved for the SKS… Hickok45 doesn’t care about oppressive meme standards though.

That guy’s channel is by far my favorite gun channel on YouTube, and it’s not just because he guzzles the same Glock Kool-Aid I do.

Similar to The People Who Make Black Hills Ammunition video I posted about previously:

That song is catchy. It reminds me of a Kid Cudi joint I like, I can’t pinpoint which one though.

I’ve never shot anything from PTR-91, but the video gives me the impression that the fit and finish of their rifles is damn nice… can anyone verify this?

I like this trend towards firearm related companies making professional looking videos.

“M1 Thumb” is in reference to yesterday’s post – HERE

Extremely rare Japanese Type 5 Garand. This is an extremely rare Japanese made copy of a U.S. Garand. It is estimated that only around 100 or so of these guns were built. The Japanese originally tried converting U.S. Garand to 7.7 Japanese caliber but had trouble with the American magazine design with the 7.7 round. They decided to try to build a copy of the Garand from scratch. These guns were made of the Yokosuka Arsenal as experimental guns, but these experimentals were forced into service due to the shortages towards the end of the war. This gun is chambered in 7.7 and has a 10 round captive magazine. The action works perfectly and the bore has strong rifling, but has darkness in the grooves. 90% plus finish remains on the metal and the wood shows minimal use. The magazine well cover is a perfect replacement. Very hard to find gun with only a handful known. Here is an opportunity to own one of the legendary rarities of WWII! Price – $29,500.00

Happens to the best of us… although hopefully not to that degree.

A less painful video demo involving a highlighter:

Not ideal…

The movie is called 71: Into The Fire
