Heartbreaker from WeaponsRelated tricked out his AR-15 furniture like a wood paneled station wagon pimp:

I blogged about wood ar-15 furniture HERE and HERE in the past.  Although this Hydro dipping is not as classy or as durable as real wood, it’s definitely less expensive.

His How To Video:

So many companies are coming out with hydro dipped graphics on guns now, but I didn’t know there was a company that made home kits until now.  Heartbreaker used a kit from MyDipKit and it seems to have turned out well.  They have a bunch of interesting graphics in their catalog, along with some pretty stupid looking ones.  I’d like to get a Hi-Point and try out the $100 bills one, and possibly the carbon fiber kit.  Funny thing is that the $100 price for the kit is almost the price of a brand new Hi-Point.

The FAQ doesn’t say anything about being able to remove the dip, so that kind of worries me if using it on an expensive firearm but i’m assuming solvent would make quick work of it.

Has anyone else done this?  Did you like the results?  Long term durability?



A simple video from freddiew:

Yea, screw alarm clocks.   I was considering trying one of those clocks that wake you up with light, but then I realized they could be defeated by just looking the other way and decided I should just save my money.  I find mornings are 10x better now though since I stopped setting my alarm clock to a radio station, and instead use the buzzer.  The only problem with the buzzer is that it starts out slow, and gradually speeds up until its like 2 beeps per second at which point I almost lose my shit and want to smash it.

Anyone else have alarm clock problems?  Tried a light wake-up clock?  I wanna hear about it.



Remember this VICE Guide To Travel on the gun markets of Pakistan?

University of California San Diego student, and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) candidate Christopher Head wants to build his own as a thesis project.

Cool idea and all, and I hate shitting on pro-gun efforts but I believe the project falls extremely short in the following areas:

This project seems more like a learning experience that he wants funded, rather than an actual useful thesis project.

Making everything including the bolt, barrel, springs, etc… (if that is in fact what he wants to do) is a lofty goal which I don’t think can be accomplished in a short amount of time, by someone without prior experience with this type of thing.

If he’s not planning on constructing absolutely everything from scratch, then the description on Kickstarter should be revised.  Assembling an AK from parts, even if he stamps or mills the reciever is nothing new.

Project costs include specialized tool purchases, tool rental, shop costs, supervision costs, gallery costs including printing, mounting, and pedestals, performance costs including range rental, ammunition, and equipment rentals. Art is expensive!

Not really sure how this qualifies as “art”.  Is anything art if you mount it in a fancy way?  I suppose so.

If you need a bunch of specialized tools, what good are the Do It Yourself instructions to anyone that doesn’t have thousands of dollars to invest in a build?  I was under the impression that Khyber Pass firearms were made mainly by hand using  basic tools.  Around the 5 minute mark in the video you can see files, hammers, hacksaws etc..

I think he would have more luck if he can revise the pledges to have a lower dollar value one that includes the instruction set.  I’d throw in a dollar or two to support the effort if I got the plans in the end.  Not a chance I’d pay $25 though, which is currently what the lowest pledge that includes an instruction set is.

Pledge #1 – $10 for 1 piece of spent brass from the test fire.  Damn I need to start calling myself an artist.

Maybe he will clear up some of the questions I have, and possibly take my suggestion of lowering the pledge value.  From a design point of view I’d love to see him succeed on this, if what he is trying to do is truly build 100% of the rifle from scratch.  As an art project, I still wish him luck because it definitely takes some balls to do such a project at a California University of all places.

Very poorly done, I thought you guys would get a kick out of it:

Check out the full weapobet over at Behance.

Not only are the artistic representations of the guns terrible even from a vector graphic standpoint, but the artist (and I use that term loosely) flops back and forth between using manufacturer names and model names which is weak.

Also, wtf is a Cold Pyton?  I could go on about minor mistakes all day to do with grip angle and over all look, but another one I know you guys will point out is the M-16 is actually more like an M4… which I suppose still works for the letter M.




Behold the Santa Cruz AK-47 Cruzer:

Custom made for pro skateboarder Jason Jessee who rides for Santa Cruz.

The dimensions are 7.62in x 32.8in.  The 7.62 can’t be a coincidence!  It’s too bad 39 inches would have made it way too long. :P  Maybe there will be a long board version in the future?

The full package with trucks and wheels available for $145, or the deck only available for $60.

I haven’t skateboarded in around 15 years, and I was never good… but this board looks like it would be incredibly hard to ride!

I know it’s an artistic representation, but that stubby little magazine kinda bugs.  Having a full size magazine would just clip the ground when you leaned into a turn though I imagine.

Dad and Hanna try to one up each other:

But both end up losing miserably.

If you have been living under a rock and haven’t seen the original Facebook Parenting – Laptop Becomes A Casualty Of The 1911 make sure to check it out.

As far as impersonations go, that guy is really good.   He even looks like that actual Dad! A Gatling flamethrower though? *shrug* whatevs
