I really like the look of those old videos. I want that M-16 cutaway that they are using for the demonstration of the internals!
Is it just me, or does the person narrating the video sound like Robert Stack, the guy from:
Hat Tip: GunPundit
Advanced Armament Corp. has a great video on how to obtain a suppressor (or silencer). Basically he demystifies the whole process:

I’m not one to take anything FOX writes as gospel.. but I found this interesting:
He turned to face authorities one last time, firing two rounds from his Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun before a bullet to the head ended his rampage. Police said Wicks fired a total of five shots during the shootout, while officers fired 81 shots.

81 shots?!?! Isn’t that a bit excessive? Did a few police officers do mag dumps? Maybe there were a lot of police shooting a few rounds each?
Video of event captured on iphone
A one-minute, 13-second video clip posted on the Web site YouTube includes at least 45 gunshots, many in rapid succession. Nicholas Gramenos, who recorded the clip, said he was leaving the courthouse when the shooting erupted.

Chances are the iphone video didn’t start the instant the shootout started, so that 81 shot report from FOX might be valid after all.
Because firewalls are for wimps
The gun appears to be an HK .22LR clone – The GSG-5
4ga sure looks menacing!

From the description:
Found this video on a disk at the airport.
Looks like a promotional video of their ACR to be used at SHOT show.
Whatever it is, it’s pretty awesome.
For those of you that don’t know.. this rifle has changed hands many times before this up and coming release. It first was the Magpul Masada, then Bushmaster bought it and renamed it to the ACR (Adaptive Combat Rifle) and is reportedly going to be catering to the commercial marketplace. Remington will be selling a selective-fire version of the ACR to military and law enforcement. Freedom Group Inc. is a large company that owns both Bushmaster and Remington.
