Worth watching even if you hate paintball:
The video game overlays were more distracting to me than anything.
Dubstep + slow motion seems to be the formula lately.
I like that it has a dark twist to it… most fake gun battles are sickeningly playful.
NERF Mortars huh? *madly scribbles it on to do list*
Before making a video with toy guns, people should learn a thing or two from the Kids, Guns & Special Effects music video I posted about earlier in the year. To date, that is the most epic video of such a type that i’ve come across.
Seen on the cover of American Handgunner magazine last year too (shown left). Must not be selling too well because they are trying to push it through email. Big surprise.
According to the blog of a New York City taxi driver:
These “taxis” are used as undercover cars in general police work. You may see them cruising the streets as you would a regular patrol car or perhaps pulling over a motorist (they’re equipped with flashing lights and sirens) who ran a red light or something. The cops are in plain clothes, not uniforms. I would guess there are about 20 of these cars in the city. I see them every day.
Plain clothes, not uniforms? Yea for “general” police work I don’t like the idea of that at all.
My personal opinion is that police as a deterrent is in the end more effective then being all sneaky and catching people doing things they definitely wouldn’t have done if they knew police were in the area.
What do you guys think?

Greenwood Police Department has six Glock machine pistols and 10,000 rounds of corresponding ammunition, but Chief Rick McQueary says he doesn’t want his officers carrying them. McQueary is working with city officials to determine what to do with the guns. They may be sold to another police department of destroyed.

A part of me died after reading that article. Worst case scenario I don’t know why the chief doesn’t just tell them to keep the switch flipped to “semi”. Problem solved.
Most people don’t know that the Law Enforcement price for a Glock 18 is only around $500. Unfair!
Races and Airshows, although a great American pastime are inherently dangerous, proven most recently in Reno NV. For that reason, although I enjoy both of them, I’d rather observe from a safe distance.
Damn these guys can drive though!
