Marketed as a great option for self-defense and EDC:

Signal9-Reliant-Pistol-1911-Revolver-CCW-EDCMultiple calibers to pick from… 4 shots, 4 barrels, with a rotating firing pin.  Hmmmmm…. why?  It’s like some of these companies try and figure out ANY little “neva bin done befo'” twist with firearm design and run with it, no matter how complicated or unnecessary.   There are numerous reasons this is so unnecessary, but one is the fact it’s pretty damn big for what it does.  It’s 0.75″ shorter than the sub-compact Glock 26 for instance, but is thicker and wider.  Not only that but this Signal9 thing only holds 4 rounds (and an extra 4 in the grip, for a reload), and the Glock26 has 10 ready to go in a tiny little magazine.  The only major advantage I see that this reliant has is the “no snag” aspect in that there is that there is no reciprocating slide, external hammer, or external rotating cylinder for all 4 of the shots.

Wat-memeAnyone else think that by looking at the trigger, it checks all the boxes for being “pure ass”?

MSRP is $500.  There is lots more information on the Signal9 Defense website if you care.  *shrug* the market will decide as always if this is a better idea than I think it is.

Thoughts?

One shot, one giggle, one hurt hand:

Break-Open-1911-Shotgun

haha whoa.  Can you imagine shooting 000 buckshot with that?

No information at all on this, besides it was posted on a thai forum… Google translate suggests that the one guy may have made it for his uncle, but that could be an error.

If some reputable company made a version of this, and Glock made a similar version of this the gun world would implode with glee.

Pudding:

Water balloons:

Water-Balloon-Shooting-Slow-MotionDespite way too much talking, the 2nd video is especially cool where the balloon actually slows the slug down and holds it captive so the host can just pluck it out.

The 2nd video shouldn’t surprise anyone who has shot water before.  The pudding is a non-newtonian fluid so that explains the first one.

Wow, Snoop Dogg huh?  What a beacon of all that is right with the world:

Over 51 million people have a retirement portfolio that’s likely invested in guns.  Is your 401k one of them?

Snoop-Dogg-Im-UnloadingHonestly I’m too lazy to google if any of those other shitheads are hypocrites too, but they might be.

So Snoop is unloading his portfolio?  Wow, that’s really bold of him to not accept any of the royalties off his music discography too considering it’s all pro-violence / pro-gun too.  Oh wait… he’ll still continue to gladly rake all that money in? Thoughts so.

I’m sure Snoop has grown up a lot since his wild earlier days, because normally everyone does… he’s still a huge hypocrite though.

If I knew these bullshit campaigns would actually do anything to the market, I’d short all those stocks right now to make money on the way down.  Then re-buy on the way up.  There’s blood all over all the money, whether it be from guns or not.  You’re just lying to yourself if you think your portfolio is squeaky clean once you dump a few gun companies.

If you want a heavier trigger, you no longer have to mess with the insides of the Glock:

The product is called Safe-Draw, and it’s available for $7 on their website.

Safe-draw-glock-trigger-weightIf it works, and people are looking for that type of thing then great!  Having extraneous stuff hanging on the outside of a weapon you’re betting your life on is rarely a good idea if you ask me.  For $7 you can’t really go wrong though if you just want to “try out” a few different weights before deciding on one and replacing the internals I’d say.

Thoughts?
