Apparently M$ was quite irritated that this existed, piggy backing on the popularity of their HALO franchise:

Liberty-Ammunition-Halo-Point

 

Liberty Ammunition removed all mention of HALO from their website, rebranding the ammunition simply as “civil-defense” now.

If you wanted to get some for your collection though, Midway USA still has some 9mm +P for $20 per box.

There’s a huge article on this ammunition over at Kotaku you can check out for more information.

Thoughts?

A guest post by Jesse Ingall from the blog Ideas, Thoughts and Happenings.

These firearms were brought in to be completely cleaned of rust and salt. They were flooded when the tide rose during Hurricane Sandy. They sat in salt water for a week or so.

I ran a steel brush through the barrels a bunch. Then I attempted to run a patch through one of the barrels and the pitting shredded the patch. Butt plate of a Mauser. Before and after:

You can really see the difference on the Enfield butt plate:

Don’t let freedom’s door hit you in the ass on the way out:

MrColionNoir (or “MCN” as a lot of you that email me call him) was really riled up about this one… talking at seemingly 2x the normal rate haha.

You can check out my past posts on Piers to see him in action on his talkshow.

Piers-Morgan

If you’re into White House petitions (I’m not) you can sign one here that deals with deporting him hahah. 104,000 signatures *not too shabby face*

Rather than deporting him, I’d rather him stay in the U.S., but lose his celebrity status.  That way he’d have to find a way to deal with gun culture, or be mocked every waking minute of his existence.

Yea I added “Assault”… but the high capacity is from them:

*facepalm* “STANDARD Capacity” Cabelas… S T A N D A R D.  I hate it when people use terms used by the anti gun crowd, outside of the context of a joke.

RIP-John-Noveske

The police report – HERE

Damn :( only 36 years old.  Not that much older than me…  I didn’t know the guy, but from the YouTube videos I saw him in, and the things I read about him he seemed like a class act.

My condolences to his friends and family.  I hope they are able to pull through this and keep pumping out quality firearms and accessories in his honor.

Remember guys, always wear your seatbelt.  Sure they can get annoying at times, but John may still be here today if he was wearing his.
