Holy dat count on the LaRue Tactical MBT-2S Trigger:

0:23 into the video we see that the total trigger pulls are allegedly at 127581, 129362 and 146485 and still going strong.  God I love a good testing rig.  I have no idea what the life is supposed to be on my standard no-frills AR-15 trigger group, but if it’s over 100k color me impressed.  Anyone know?

You can pick up a MBT-2S for $220 at LaRue.  Here are the details:

Sparing no expense, all major components are precision-machined from S7 Tool Steel. The result of this extra effort is a glass-smooth, hyper-consistent trigger that will satisfy even the most scrupulous competition shooter, but also be overly rugged for the battlefield. The MBT-2S breaks crisply at 4.5 lbs (2.5 lb first stage, 2 lb second stage) and has a smooth and positive reset. Made in-house, in Texas, in the USA.

Larue-Tactical*shrug* sounds good to me.  Does ARFCOM still pray to LaRue facing the South daily starting at 5:56:45 AM?

Associated Press under fire! haha so much butthurt over these pics:

Ted-Cruz-Handgun-Head

Full Story – Politico

Wow people love to get upset over everything..  The GUY WAS SPEAKING AT A GUN RANGE.  There are gun posters and guns everywhere.  I see what they are saying though that this could be used by the other side to subliminally paint Ted Cruz into a more negative light for his positive stance on guns.  It’s a dirty game, but it’s not like we don’t already know the tactics.  These guys just have to stay one step ahead of the competition, or else just laugh it off when they pull something sneaky.  I love how in the 2nd pic, AP caught him in 1/2 derp too.

I don’t follow politics, but Ted Cruz seems like a gun bro on the surface of things.  I’m sure you guys will correct me in the comments if he’s actually not.

Thoughts?

Big things happening in Colorado Springs:

Shoot-Self-In-Foot

Officers were called to St. Francis Hospital in Colorado Springs, CO about 7 p.m. on reports of a man injured in an accidental gun discharge. Adam Hirtle (age 30), however, told police the shooting was completely on purpose, and that he shot himself in his garage.  According to police, he said he wanted to know what it felt like.

“Hirtle stated he took his boot off and shot it, then placed his boot back on his foot and then intentionally shot himself in the foot,” police say. “He did not sustain life-threatening injury nor was anybody else injured.”

Adam Hirtle, 30, is suspected of prohibited use of weapons, reckless endangerment and child abuse in the shooting. Sgt. James Sokolik, a police spokesman, said Hirtle was served a summons in the case and released.

Full Story – Denver Post

Aw man… “prohibited use of weapons”, “Reckless endangerment”, and “child abuse”?  Can’t a guy just do things just to do them anymore?  I mean if there were kids around, that’s very irresponsible and setting a bad example, but “child abuse” seems like a pretty broad.   I hope they really looked into this before throwing the book at him for being a dumbass.  People should be allowed to Darwin themselves in my opinion.  It’s supposedly a free country still.

Can you guys figure out the part about why he took his boot off first to shoot it… then put it boot back on and shot his foot?  The only thing I can think of is he maybe wanted to go for a specific area of his foot, and wanted a pilot hole made from the first round.  Damn what an idiot though… did he not know how much this little experiment would hurt?  It’s like he’s never even had a paper cut or anything in his life, and had nothing to compare it to.

Lucky his health insurance (HA!) covers stupidity and negligence.

Hey Everyone,

The commenting has been extremely slow lately I know.  I really appreciate everyone who has been waiting it out, while their comment chugged along through the server.  I’m going to try to fix it soon, and I’ll keep you posted.  I’m also going to implement reply notification and post comment notification (which I had setup before) for your convenience.

Sentinel-Concepts-Derp-ScanThanks again,

P.S. – Already made some speed improvements in commenting. Trying a couple more things soon.

Standard:

0:04 – Is the esteemed announcer talking into some type of large Russian sausage?  He seems quite sauced.

0:22 – haha that careful ice running to prone

0:51 – “Shoot somewhere fast”

Dude lights up the targets and it’s a wrap!

Russian-VS-SnowmanAll in all the four rules were respected, and they had fun.  Although I don’t condone drinking and shooting, Jeff Cooper obviously didn’t want to be a buzz kill, and toss a 5th “Always be sober” rule in the mix.

Note to self: Participate in Russian biathlon. In hindsight that would have made some good 1st week of Engineering shenanigans. I hear there are even girls now in Engineering! Epic.

Cartels gonna cartel:

Intennnnnnnnse!  I can’t pinpoint why for certain, but I’m not a big fan of Emily Blunt.  I think it’s maybe because she is the same way in EVERY movie she’s in.

I really like cartel related movies.  The Schwarzenegger one called “Sabotage” was pretty decent, but I’d have to say the best one I’ve seen in the past couple years has to go to “End of Watch“… that movie was awesome.

sicaro-movie-posterI know I’ve mentioned this before, but Mexico officially scares the shit out of me.  I don’t plan on going back.  I managed not to be murdered, die of alcohol poisoning or food poisoning the first time on spring break, I think it’s asking too much to have that happen again.

Sicaro will be in theaters Sept 2015.

Thoughts?
