Trying to put a bullet in a potato eyeball through a scope with a .308 at 50 yards:

The Carlos Hathcock legend:

One of Hathcock’s most famous accomplishments was shooting an enemy sniper through the enemy’s own rifle scope, hitting him in the eye and killing him. Hathcock and John Roland Burke, his spotter, were stalking the enemy sniper in the jungle near Hill 55, the firebase from which Hathcock was operating. The sniper, known only as the ‘Cobra,’ had already killed several Marines and was believed to have been sent specifically to kill Hathcock. When Hathcock saw a flash of light (light reflecting off the enemy sniper’s scope) in the bushes, he fired at it, shooting through the scope and killing the sniper. Surveying the situation, Hathcock concluded that the only feasible way he could have put the bullet straight down the enemy’s scope and through his eye would have been if both snipers were zeroing in on each other at the same time and Hathcock fired first, which gave him only a few seconds to act. Given the flight time of rounds at long ranges, the snipers could have simultaneously killed one another. Hathcock took possession of the dead sniper’s rifle, hoping to bring it home as a “trophy” but, after he turned it in and tagged it, it was stolen from the armory. (Source)

BOOM… HEADSHOT.  Nice work guys.

Highjak86hahah that scope was a mess.  I suggested they tape it to the end of their rifle barrel, using it as a half loudener.

Thoughts?

Talking about responsibility:

MrColionNoir-ENDO-Keep-Calm2:08 – Why is he unloading his handgun every night? Is that a Texas thing? If not, it doesn’t sound like something MrColionNoir would normally say.

I asked him on Twitter, so we’ll see what he says. I have his personal contact info too obviously, so if he doesn’t reply on social media I’ll badger him the old fashioned way and give you guys an update haha.

Thoughts? Are you liking these NRA News collabs?

I was holding off on a new shotgun purchase until Vigilant Spectre weighed in:

VigilantSpectre-YouTube-DERPThe intro vid was face paced, informative, and entertaining enough.  Hopefully the series they are doing will be worth watching.  They really have come a long way by any measure from back in the old days… that said I know a lot of people still aren’t interested in taking advice from guys that aren’t actual former operators in operations.  Hell I even hear a lot of shit talking about Chris Costa solely because he was in the Coast Guard (Note: I make fun of Costa for shark jumping… The man can shoot and I think anyone can learn a lot from him).

Thoughts?  Will you be tuning into this Vigilant Spectre series?  I’ll watch them, but keeping it real I honestly won’t post them unless I can poke fun at safety violations, derp and what not.

Serious business.  Pronounce something wrong and you’ll get shot dead:

Fascist-Workplace-Shooting-PhonicsReally annoying mispronunciations though, I’ll give him that.

I always find british humor more “heh” funny than “LOL” funny.  I know some people love it though. Gun control should have never let that happen amirite? :P

Thoughts?

A poignant reminder of the dangers of an ND:

Catchy song.

MrColionNoir-ENDO-Keep-Calm33 Rounders for all the Glocks FTW!  A good stopping power to weight ratio on the 9mm round if you ask me.
