When life gives you no money for a real holster:

You have to improvise.  This got me thinking… with the right type of flip flop you could have a ghetto NY Reload holster.  If you can’t steal one of your wife/girlfriend’s flip flops then hit up payless and cop a pair. This will either give you a backup holster to have on hand in case the 1st one breaks… or better yet carry 4 guns and call it a Detroit Reload setup.

Church?

There is so much bad information in this video:

When O’Reilly got worked up the first time, I was just wishing that guy he was talking to was going to say “U MAD hahha that would have been priceless.

60,000 rounds LOLOL OMG…

The man speaks from his ivory tower surrounded by armed guards:

I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you the public, through your legislature do what’s require to keep us safe. -Michael Bloomberg

For a second there I was hoping Bloomberg came to his senses and was going to finish his sentence with “Unless you the public learn how to protect yourselves”.  That would have made more sense…

VigilantSpectre’s Marksmanship Qualification:

From the description:

  • Every member of the team must pass both a primary and secondary weapons qual for multiple reasons, Here is a short snippet of the primary qual.
  • Two positions: one at 150 yards and the other at 250.
  • Shooters start at 150 yrds. They shoot 10 rounds from standing offhand, followed by 10 rounds kneeling and 5 prone.
  • The shooter then moves to 250 yards and repeats this sequence but is allowed to rest.
  • Shooters are given 50 rounds in 3 randomly loaded magazines.
  • 3 minute time limit on each stage with no rollover

I love the “for multiple reasons” vagueness in the description.  You just know these guys sit around at night in multicam panties, drinking and salivating over SHTF scenarios.

Those distances are fine and all, but they failed to say what counts as a pass.  My guess is these guys just have to “shoot” at targets at those ranges, and hits don’t really matter. Might as well throw some targets 1000+ yards downrange too if that’s the case.

Oh yea and one more thing, did Spectre introduce the shooter as “Anus Patriot” at 0:16?  It sure sounds like it, and I really wouldn’t be surprised.

I don’t listen to the radio, but I still hear this song everywhere:

For some reason I didn’t enjoy this vid as much as a couple of the others I posted a while back:

This one just seems a bit more forced than the other two… maybe that’s why?

Glad they are having fun in the downtime anyway.  Since the original Carly Rae Jepsen music video is about a phone number and a gay dude I was half expecting that worked into the plot of this video somehow.  I guess DADT is still a touchy subject even to joke about.

Definitely consulted a journalists guide to firearm identification:

It blows my mind how careless both the print and TV media are.

With social media being so prevalent now they might be learning some embarrassing lessons finally.  They have since removed the picture and issued the following correction statement:

A picture on Tuesday with an article about the weapons used in the Aurora, Colo., shooting was published in error. It showed a Les Baer .45 — not a Glock .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol, which was used in the shooting.

To make things worse, the article’s author James Dao is actually in charge of military and veterans affairs for the NYT national desk, and co-editor of the NYT military affairs blog “At War”.  How are these people getting promoted to jobs where they have no knowledge of the subject matter?  Even if you type “.40 Caliber Glock” into Google images, almost ALL of the pictures are actually of Glocks (unsurprisingly)… I don’t know how he managed to find a 1911 and call it a Glock if Google images is what he presumably used.

Thoughts?
