Picatinny Arsenal know how to play the game to get the views:

From the video description:

The Army has begun fielding the new 5.56mm 30 round Improved Magazine that delivers a significant increase in reliability for the battle-tested M16 and M4 weapons systems. Bolstering the already high reliability ratings of the M16/M4 systems, the Improved Magazine effectively reduces the risk of magazine-related stoppages by more than 50 percent compared to the older magazine variants. Identified by a tan-colored follower, over 500,000 of the improved magazines have been fielded to units in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the U.S.

There are a few things I would tweak…. they definitely should have called the magazine a “clip”, rather then putting 30 round they should have put “30 bullet”, oh and 5.56mm should have been 5.56 inch.

Thoughts?

He now reviews luxury automobiles. Get used to it broke bois:

It’s narrated in that velvety Colion Noir voice, sprinkled with jokes, music references and various other esoteric references as you would expect.

I’ve decided two things after watching the video… 1) I’m going to check if the NRA is hiring / delete past blog posts and tweets where I no doubt cooked them 😂… and 2) I’m going to keep telling myself owning multiple vehicles is too much of a pain in the ass with all the care they require if they you actually drive them a lot.  I’m going to completely ignore the fact that if you’re not a broke boi like myself you just have the dealership arrange a flatbed guy to come pick up the car and take it in for maintenance, and when it needs a wash every couple days (to keep looking extra glossy just to constantly let these hoes know) you have the man with the mobile detail van just stop by the high rise… have the concierge buzz him into your private parking and he does his thing while you’re asleep. Some of you are probably asking yourselves “I don’t get that flatbed to dealership thing…”, and my answer to that is when you’re ultra rich you obviously don’t have the time to waste on stupid shit like oil changes, preventative maintenance, warranty recalls etc… so they just come and pick up the DB11 and you drive your Range Rover Velar that day. You probably have important stuff to do like read a new book while you listen to the ocean, do some online shopping, and maybe try out a new sushi spot? And yes they PICK IT UP on the flat bed because that way no one poor gets poor germs on your buttery seats, plus they don’t even put a single mile on it. A related protip for all you ballers too (if you’re not already up on game), is that you can start off a night of relaxation by cruising some place nice for food and drinks in your fancy car with your girl… then because you’re rich things quickly get out of hand… you two down 1..2…3 expensive bottles, and next thing you know you’re both absolutely SAUCED. Now what? How are you getting your car, your girl, and yourself home safely? You toss flat bed mans the text / drop a pin to show him your location and boom he’s there to scoop up your ride and deliver it back safely to your crib. You and your girl take an UBER BLACK home (UberX is for common poor folk) when you’re done for the night.

NOIR really dropped the ball by not using the Drake line “Subtle reminders are key… jeeze” at any random point in the video just to flex 😏.  The Eames lounge chair in his livingroom name drop at 3:46 no doubt went over a lot of the poors’ heads, but for those that don’t know that chair starts at $5000 in it’s lowest end configuration and goes all the way up to around $8000.

Oh and NOIR had to do it to em in the pinned top comment on the video (if you click through). I won’t paste it here, but to summarize it basically says “I’m going to keep making whatever type of videos I want to, so deal with it”… which can also be summarized with this song:

Y’all got any thoughts?

u already kno:

He says get involved with IDPA etc… and learn to shoot move and communicate.  Yea I mean in theory that’s obviously amazing and the math check out, but how many people every year that actually have had to use their handgun to save their own life do you think actually go to the range EVER… much less “train like they fight”.  My guess is an extremely small number.  I’m not saying that training like you fight is over rated, but people have definitely successfully stayed alive (and will continue to manage) by just pulling the trigger in the direction of the bad guy.

Magnets… how do they work?  This is what innovation looks like:

I’m so charged up after reading these details:

  • UNIQUE DESIGN FOR MAX COMFORT: Smooth nylon-plastic flexes to fit contour of back and spreads pressure evenly to eliminate pressure points ** Gun never touches skin ** Comfortable when seated in chair or car (feels similar to lumbar support) ** Bands can be individually adjusted and moved to fit any body type ** Bands are thin and minimalist to prevent sweating
  • MAGNETIC RETENTION: Strong neodymium magnets hold gun in place ** Gun only comes out from sustained horizontal pull during draw ** Will never accidently release from sudden impact or jarring ** Draw gun in under 2 seconds while standing or sitting ** Pocket maintains shape for easy reholstering ** Designed for right hand draw
  • COMPLETE CONCEALMENT AND SAFETY: Gun disappears into recess of lower back under any basic shirt ** Gun stays in uncommon position which helps avoid detection ** Draw motion looks similar to pulling out wallet ** Muzzle never pointed at body while worn or drawn ** Trigger guard fully protected
  • FULL MOBILITY: Allows full unrestricted range of movement and mobility during standing, sitting, jogging, sprinting, or jumping ** Limited stretch elastic bands will automatically adjust to fit in different positions standing or sitting or during movement ** Wearable with any type of clothing (undershirt recommended for extended use) ** No belt or oversize jeans required ** Perfect for undercover or off-duty law enforcement
  • FITS MOST GUNS: Excellent fit for all Glocks and similar fullsize, compact, and subcompact polymer-framed semi-autos with streamlined controls ** NOT RECOMMENDED for heavy, metal frame guns or guns with large controls (decockers, manual safeties, or oversize slide releases) as commonly found on full-size 1911’s, sig sauer’s, or CZ’s. Slimmer handguns with large controls may still fit if overall width is similar to glock) ** NOT RECOMMENDED for use with revolvers

Incredible.  They call it the “Got-Your-Back-Holster”.  Sold at Amazon for $44 if you have a flock that needs protecting.  I’m sure that NRA t-shirt can be picked up from the NRA.  Man, I really need to make at least one cringe shirt; “Keeping good people free and bad people at bay” LOLOL man I love the sentiment obviously but holy man that’s weapons grade cringe.

Thoughts?

Tru Sheepdogs kno:

I don’t know if the guy calls himself a “sheepdog” or not (my guess is he doesn’t, and he’s just a regular good guy with the CCW).  Either way he took down a wolf.

Here’s the full story at CBS Chicago.

Thoughts?  Chicago needs all the help it can get.  I think it’s cool that the cops are giving this guy the respect and thanks he deserves.

Nice visuals.  A lot of guns.  Vuhlandes is a photographer from the hood in Detroit MI:

Definitely a lot of considerations when doing photography in the hood, as he mentions near the start of the documentary.  Surprisingly “firearm safety” isn’t mentioned among the concerns.  The trigger discipline in this video is actually among the best I’ve seen (for the most part)… also surprising.  LOL a lot of protective covers on all the AK and Draco charging handles.

6:25 – Holy that L. Georges 😬.  Looks clean inside there but wow that’s a lot of protective (bulletproof?) glass.

18:05 – LOL they discuss “boomerangs” (the animated gifs which loop back and forth), and then the pronunciation of gif.  Classic stuff.  I’m “JIFF” camp for life.

A lot of the guys in the videos actually have some pretty decent guns.  I was bracing for an appearance of an ENDO AR-15 stock to Glock adapter, but didn’t catch any.

You can check out his instagram page and his website if you’re interested in seeing more of his photography.  Really incredible pictures.

Thoughts?  I wonder how many of the individuals in the video are legally allowed to possess a firearm?  I’d like to think all of them all, but we all know there are definitely some people out there stupid enough to appear in a video breaking laws, which they know damn well is going up on YouTube.
