A holster idea a one-product Spanish company thinks is so innovative, they named their company Eureka:

R O F L

Let me just put it out there that I see absolutely no reason for anyone to carry a modern handgun without one in the chamber.

+1 for the good looking Spanish product rep / police officer, even though she obviously shoots like a total newb judging by the video.

-1 for the lame motorcycle drive-by shooting

This video gives you a better look at how the holster operates with different brands of handguns:

  • 2:04 – Oh LAWD.. did he just eject a live round with his entire hand in front of the barrel?  I sure hope that was a snap cap or an inert round; bad practice though either way.
  • 2:45 – Again… Sure doesn’t look like a snap cap.  Only hope now is an inert round.
  • 3:12 – Primer missing… I can rest easy.  (hahah I was actually going to delete these last 3 lines once I saw this, but I figured one of you guys would freak out in the comments too)

You might remember that the Russians have a similar holster for their Makarov pistols (Because the spetsnaz are obviously also so damn high-speed).  Theirs though you can push the gun straight through, unlike this Spanish one where you have to push down to load the firearm, then yank back up on it to get it out of the holster.  My guess is the “innovation” in this Spanish one which they think is patentable is that aspect alone.

In addition, what an absolutely excruciating logo they have (pictured right). LOL a glowing brain inside a globe, with blue lightening coming out of it.  ROFL I couldn’t even make stuff like that up.  I think I threw up a bit in my mouth.

Head over to Eureka’s website for the more pictures and info.

Red Jello Glock:

LOL at the FTFs and FTEs.  Note to self… keep Glocks away from Jello when operating in operations.

Scrambled Egg Glock:

haha not as bad as the Jello… but still funny to see that slide locking back on him.

There are a lot of Glock torture tests out there, most of which the Glock passes with flying colors.  Dragging one down a dirt road and even General operating in operations to the extreme to name another.  FPSRussia even does a torture test of his own.  Another guy actually had a Glock 34 fail after he ran a torture test of his own on it… then he got frustrated and peed on it.

Thoughts?  How long until Vigilant Sphincter starts training for Jello Malfunctions?  You know damn well they go home and do Jello shots out of each other’s belly buttons, I hate to see some Jello splash on the Glocks they had sitting around, and then jam up if they needed to quickly put one to use.

James Yeager’s generosity and the genesis of a new meme:

His offer at 1:55 :

If you are a wounded warrior that has been discharged from the military and you are missing limbs or whatever you got going on.  First of all thank you for your service… I am going to train you for free.  Tactical Response is here for you even when Wounded Warrior is not.

That is such an amazingly generous offer… It has really been difficult not to like Yeager recently.

As much as I enjoyed the Buck Yeager meme, I am giving it a rest for the time being.  Sure I may bring it back, but I think this good guy Yeager one needs to get some air for a while.  Click HERE for a blank meme picture so you can make your own up on this video or future videos and share it in the comments.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Wounded Warrior debacle, you can check out my brief post covering the hypocrisy of it on MILcentric.

From Artist Alexander Mijares “Make Art Not War” series *insert eye roll at series name*:

They start off as CNC cut aluminum blanks and Alexander paints what you see on by hand:

It’s pretty much a given that I’ll shit on any and every art project someone sends me a link to.  For one, this Alexander Mijares guy calls himself a professional artist and obviously makes a living off of what he does.  Bottom line is I could do this (and most of the other “art” I post about), and I just might do it for personal satisfaction.  Secondly, I get the whole concept of taking “artistic licences” when representing something.  I didn’t need this AR-15 based rifle to be a carbon copy of an actual rifle, but seriously the proportions are way off!  Why is the barrel nut way behind with the delta ring?  Why is the magazine retardedly shaped?  Why is the barrel profile on a diet? I could go on and on.  Maybe he wanted it that way, but my guess is he knows nothing about firearms and googled “assault rifle” and took the first picture of some airsoft bastardization and made that his model.  That’s Ok too though… he hangs out with good looking girls (see his facebook page), likely drinks for free and eats some stinky cheese on the reg, so all in all it looks like a pretty good life.

Semi-acceptable at first glance I suppose:

BRZN is a collection of bullet casing jewelry. The bracelets are made with .22lr bullet casings, colorful camo paracord and wire. Each piece is handcrafted with a combination of new and sustainable materials to create something rugged, fun, eye-catching and different.There are over twenty styles of paracord available in two bullet casing colors.

A couple of .22LR brass casings, some paracord with a bendable wire inside for rigidity.  Meh… if you like the look not bad right?  Sure until you look at the price: $49  I shit you not.

Lets break down the costs incurred by this enterprising young man (from Chicago no less):

  • .22LR brass (free unless you’re an idiot)
  • 6″ of 550 paracord (worth around $0.05 at retail price)
  • 6″ of bendable craft wire (I’ll generously say this is worth $0.05 as well)
  • Miscellaneous item that keeps wire inside the .22LR brass (I’ll give this a generous estimate of $0.10)
  • Labor (Heck lets be generous again and say this guy’s time is worth $60 per hour and he can do one every minute… so labor cost per item is $1)

——————
Total Cost: $1.20

Yea that’s a $1.20 cost (but likely much less) on a $49 item, and to add insult to injury he won’t even ship the damn things for free.

Looking at his Etsy sales he has sold 25 of these since his store opened on September 6th of this year.  Now that’s not a lot, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a complete failure either considering he pulled in $1225….. $1195 of which was profit.  That’s a decent amount of beer money (or in his case possibly a few cases of low fat coconut water infused with chai extract and lingonberry vapor.) *slow clap*

Head over to his Etsy store BRZN for the goods.

Crazy slingshot guy delivers:

Does anyone else get nervous when he’s cocking weapons and inserting projectiles when someone is obviously running the camera directly in front of him?

2:11 – Poison injecting syringe arrow?  haha wow

I hate to think how many watch lists Joerg is on in Germany.

Why he hasn’t quit his job and moved to the US to make and sell slingshots full time is beyond me. People would eat this stuff up if the designs looked a bit more polished and the price was reasonable.
