SAW

Larry heads to Moscow to an awesome small arms archives at the central armed forces museum:

Saw-Puppet-BicycleHoly, the vid is sure awesome, I don’t know what was with the color it was like watching SAW haha.  I thought Larry was going be told by a puppet on a tricycle “I want to play a game”, then Larry would wake up in a bathtub with an empty can of beans beside him and commence farting glass shards while a timer counted down.  He’d have to assemble 15 very rare AK variants from a pile of random parts, and only then would he receive a handful of gas-x pills to stop the pain.

I could see how gun collecting if you were very rich could get extremely out of hand.  Wanting to acquire variants like those would always be like a dangling carrot in front of your face.

Thoughts?

Tighten your damn suppressor before you rock and roll.

He does a pretty good job of suppressing his embarrassment in video #1:

Video #2 though… “Stay clear guys, this is going to be awesome”.  Everything is going well…. OH Wait jiggly suppressor!  For the love of god… *JAM* *rack* *Bam bam bam bam* *JAM* (Repeat 9x).   Embarassing!  Now the classic “Bad ammo” cover-up.  It’s Murphy’s law that if there are cameras and a group of people watching you this is exactly what happens.

Thoughts?

FLIR stands for Forward Looking Infared:

What you’re seeing is the different heat levels represented by colors. Bright color = hot.

It would be pretty neat to get one of those cameras to fool around with.

An armchair shoot starting on Valentines Day:

The idea of somone caring about entering this “virtual” shooting promotion is funny.  I’m looking forward to seeing the aftermath though.  You can check out the promotion page over at shootmytruck.com.  I’m not a fan of any contest (like this one) that requires you to install an “app” that spys on your twitter or facebook account.

I recall playing the original Twisted Metal back in the 90s.  I remember it being fun at the time because you could beat the living crap out of the vehicles.  Confusingly enough this new game is called Twisted Metal as well.

You can pre-order it over at Amazon for $60 for the PS3 if you’re into that sort of thing.

  • The upper receiver is a modified AR-15 upper that will feed with standard SAW M249 links
  • The lower and bolt carrier are stock with only a clearance cut added
  • Every other aspect of the gun is standard AR-15

I have no idea if they are for sale.  My guess is that if the price was right (under $300), they would fly off the shelves.  I even think people with regular semi auto AR-15s would buy them for kicks.

Geardo

For those not familiar with the terminology…

Definitions:

Geardo – One who spends at least 50% of each paycheck (before taxes) on the latest & greatest gear, just to have the latest and greatest gear, regardless of whether or not that gear will actually help the wearer preform his/her duties.

FOB (Forward Operating Base) – A secured forward position that is used to support tactical operations. A FOB may or may not contain an airfield, hospital, or other facilities. – wiki

S.A.W. (Squad Automatic Weapon) – A weapon designed to give infantry squads or sections a compact and mobile source of suppressive fire. SAWs are usually equipped with a bipod for stabilization and fire the same cartridge as the assault rifles carried by other members of the unit.  The M249 SAW that is currently in use by the U.S. is getting ready to be replaced.  Rumor has it that the H&K IAR is the replacement, although I have heard this is false and they haven’t actually won the contract yet (they are just the front runner)… we will see.

ACU (Army Combat Uniform) – The current combat uniform worn by the U.S. Army.  Has a distinct new camouflage pattern. – wiki
