This happened yesterday at a Carls Jr. In Monterey Park California:

The video shows Rodriguez raising a pipe toward a police officer. Two officers open fire – first five rounds, and then the second officer fires five more.

Source – ABC

The police are villainized whenever they shoot someone, by one group or another and i’m really getting sick of the lethal force vs less than lethal force complaining.  “Did they have to kill the guy?”.  Well… they tried to use a Taser and that didn’t work, he came after them with the pipe so they shot him DEAD.  End of discussion if you ask me. Frankly, the whole Taser thing is just a gift to criminals anyway.  Nowadays you can do stuff you would have been shot for back in the day, but instead get zapped and the worst of it is you might shit your pants and go to jail.

Politics do not even interest me slightly, but this is funny:

This gun is like Ron Paul.  Consistently accurate, defends liberty, feared by tyrants, and most important NOT FOR SALE.  No special intrest.  No lobbyist.  No Bailouts.


Clever.  What’s the verdict on Ron Paul now anyway?  Last I heard, people were saying that half of what came out his mouth was batshit crazy, and the other half was brilliant.



Youtuber  has a bit of fun with Paige starting at around 2:48

LOL Classic.  She actually handled herself really well.. pretty funny though.  If you’ve never heard of Paige, she’s on the Discovery Channel show American Guns.  Not my favorite show on earth, but definitely far less annoying than Sons Of Derp.



He does his trademarked bumpfire:

Result: it works.

I’m actually surprised he didn’t spring the for Surefire 100 Round Magazine instead.  It would be more conducive to his bumpfire lifestyle.  Maybe it’s not out yet though?

I know a lot of you hate when I post cokeman’s videos, cause it “gives the antis fuel” or something like that.  I see where you’re coming from, but I really couldn’t care less what someone that doesn’t like guns thinks about anything.  If cokeman wants to bumpfire inside his house he can go ahead and do it for all I care (actually I hope he does cause that would be facepalm-tastic) as long as no one is getting hurt.

When he’s out and about, I bet he gets a lot of questions regarding his role on “2 and a half men”.




This week I’m giving away 12 copies of Philip Mulivor’s new book:

About the book:

More than 130 key quotes vetted for accuracy—including nearly all the famous firearms-related remarks attributed to our Founders—by checking them word-for-word against original books and documents (many predating the Declaration of Independence). The book debunks several phony quotes and sets the record straight on dozens of others.  Several reproductions of title pages from antique books (Some are over 250 years old) which were used in the research are also included.

If you don’t think you’re lucky enough to win, or if you simply want to get your hands on a copy immediately you can place your order over at Amazon:

Buy the paperback for 12.95 or Kindle edition for $3.95.  Philip was nice enough to offer a 20% discount on the paperback edition using the discount code EFPPY7C5 for the length of the contest when you checkout of Amazon.

Probably one of the funniest training videos I’ve posted to date:

As a global leader of Tactical Training, Xia Tactical offers a unique brand of training to warrior minded individuals throughout the U.S. and South America.

Uh.. how about we keep it short and sweet – “The leading training school for tactical bamboo / lawn chair operations.”

My Commentary:

  • 0:04 – Lets get started with a 7 foot bamboo log to the face.  How you like that beeOtch?  Now try to stay on target.
  • 0:07 – Disregard bamboo logs, acquire sight picture.  Someone yells “Lets go playa!”
  • 0:16 – 12 dudes, 1 mime.
  • 0:18 – Nothing like throwing a 7ft bamboo log at someones stomach in order to simulate real life.  If I never trained for such a thing I wouldn’t be half the man I am today.
  • 0:24 – Hand to hand a bamboo log then gangster shoot like no ones business.
  • 0:31 – Oh look more bamboo log deflection training.  Wtf is this? Donkey Kong?  The target charge while shooting was a nice touch.
  • 0:33 – I often find I’m engaging targets while balancing on logs, greased up slides, you name it.  Glad to see a training school catering to the problems operators face.
  • 0:39 – Ah the good old log to log walking while shooting drill.  One of the most practical drills in existence.
  • 0:41 – Dramatic point…. and hand to hand bamboo skills demonstration.
  • 0:50 – Take a knee with your bamboo log gentlemen, and point your gun at the target like you mean it.
  • 0:51 – Here take another bamboo log to the stomach and charge the target while shooting.
  • 0:58 – Getting ripped off the back of a lawn chair then returning fire.  Such a valuable skill if you go to a lot of cookouts in the hood.
  • 1:08 – Shooting from lawn chairs.  In case you catch those east side fools in your beer cooler.
  • 1:10 – Punching and cutting targets after you shot them.  Good way to make someone you killed more dead.
  • The music speeds up and it gets more retarded… but first some repetition of what I mentioned above.
  • 1:44 – Engaging targets while douchebag instructor jiggles the logs under your feet to try to make you fall.
  • 1:48 – Screw the limbo, i’m jumping over this shit.

Some more of the same stuff as above and instructors pushing students asshattery, peppered with the guys playing with moving boxes like they are cover.

I know you guys are going to have a lot to say about this.  Thoughts?
