Chris “Shark Jump” Costa is back at it with a ridiculous pod shaped backpack…*ahem* sorry “satchel”:

Chris-Costa-Hive-Satchel

I could barely catch my breath between LOLs when I first saw this thing.  Did April fools day get moved this year?  Astro Boy’s androgynous cousin Robin called, he want’s a piece of the profit for inspiring the design.

The Hive Satchel is $195 over at Blue Force Gear.  It’s funny how they say it’s so “discrete”… like yea sure it won’t look like anything with a gun in it to the untrained eye, but it will definitely draw attention and speculation because everyone that looks at it will be like “wow, that’s a fucking stupid looking backpack, what does he carry in there? Probably the life helmet he should be wearing so he doesn’t hurt himself on the world.” hopefully just to themselves, but if they say it out loud you can reply “IT’S A SATCHEL DAMNIT, and CHRIS COSTA designed it… DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO CHRIS COSTA IS?!  If not, KILL YOURSELF.”

homer-jump-sharkWho makes up the target market for this? Will it fit a rifle, tactical arm tape, zombie derp dvds, and Haley’s skin care products inside?  In an active shooter scenario I’d think this would be more of a liability than an asset because if the shooter is at all humane, he’d put the guy with the most retarded looking backpack out of his misery to start things off.

I think I may have given Costa way too much credit when he was with Magpul.  The guy is letting me down bigtime now.

Thoughts?   Does this next-level satchel meet your tier 1 requirements as an operator who operates in discreet urban operations?

Adding up the costs:

Holy those stats at the beginning are as unbelievable as that dude’s eyebrows.  They only get more ridiculous after that… the stats; his eyebrows stay the same.

ENDO gets some screen time throughout the vid:

When Matt sent me the link I immediately had to double check that I wasn’t on the Onion or watching an SNL skit.  Three things struck me as odd… first off that Amanda Ober lady is a real character, and secondly what a sloppy way to show the target.  I’m glad they showed my site and all, but really… they couldn’t have clicked through or at least cropped the google images part out?  Last of all, I know you don’t need a PHD from an ivy league university to be a police officer, but I figured it was a no-brainier that a public servant shooting at a target depicting a dead teenager from one of the most controversial self defense shootings in a long time, would be a little more than simply frowned upon.

The Trayvon Martin Shooting Target post was really quiet lately, up until earlier today when some racist troll started up on it briefly.  I figured it was a random occurrence at the time, but I guess not.

Yea 20,000… GONE.  *poof*:

The Interior Ministry said thieves broke into a warehouse and stole a huge amount of firearms and ammunition. The ministry said 20,000 U.S.-origin M-16 assault rifles and 15,000 rounds for 9mm pistols were stolen.

(Source)

I love how the article says “there were no guards during the break-in”, like OH WHAT A COINCIDENCE, that doesn’t sound like an inside job at all.  

*ring* *ring* *ring* Hello?

Put Ahmad on the phone.

Who is this?

PUT Ahmad on the damn phone.

Ahmad here, wAHHHHHHHHHHHTTTTUP?

Maintainin’ my dude… anyway if you can get Tony and Raj’s help tonight and borrow Abdullah’s semi trailer, the boys and I are going on a break at around 11PM WINK WINK.

What is “wink wink”?

Dude… do I have to spell it out for you?  THERE ARE 20,000 M-16s in the warehouse.  We won’t be there.  Come steal them.

Ah right, thanks for being a bro.

*click*

Yea that’s how I’m thinking it went down.  20,000 rifles has to take up a significant amount of room, no matter how they are packed!  I wonder if anyone is going to get in trouble for this, or will it just get swept under the rug?

Thoughts?

CMT (Country Music Television) has a new gun related show:

Guntucky chronicles three generations of the Sumner family and their adventures as they shoot from the hip and fire from all cylinders in business and in life, banding together to run Knob Creek gun shop and shooting range.

Looks like it might be some mindless gun entertainment if that’s what you’re looking for.  You can actually check out the entire 1st episode online before the actual air date.  Knob Creek looks like a good time, I’d like to check it out someday. I’m sure those of you that have been might be looking forward to the show to see some behind the scenes type things.

GuntuckyPremieres Sunday April 21st @ 8:30 Central.
