Scaring migrating birds off a toxic lake in Montana:

Interesting video.  They are using so many different methods.. Initially I thought it seemed like an easy enough problem that could be taken care of by more drones with some AI.  They mention at around 5:28 though, that each bird responds differently to different scaring methods like drones etc.  Definitely an interesting problem to solve; terrible that it’s yet another man made issue.

Thoughts?

Yoooooo:

Big 🤝 link between Viridian, Springfield, Federal, and Gunsite. Holy, whoever is flying the drone is a pro.  They got pretty damn close to both of the shoot house shooter’s faces a few times, but it was all good.

They got some really cool footage, and the editing was on point too.

I like what I see:

Looking for something injection molded, inexpensive, and comes with a lifetime warranty?  Move over Uncle Mike’s.  Warcat is seemingly looking to “D I S R U P T” the holster game.. all their holsters (which are injection molded, NOT kydex), are priced at $17.76.  They even have an option you can check if you have a red dot sight.  Compatibility looks decent.. a lot of the popular compacts and subcompacts from Glock, Springfield, SIG, and S&W.  A lot of guys run lights, so I’m assuming they’ll offer popular weapon light compatibility soon as well.

The design process.. aka shots fired at kydex bois:

The fact they are warcat.com off rip impresses me as well.  I couldn’t find how much they paid for that name, but I can already say it’s worth every penny.  It’s always shocking in this industry when someone’s website functions perfectly too.. I’m impressed with these guys.

$17.76 over at Warcat.

Thoughts? Oh man, the kydex gun ceLebRitiEs that sell their own brand holsters are going to be shaking in their 5.11 boots.  Sure some kydex bois have better fit and quality than others, but it’s a LOT of marketing.  The downside in pricing something like this under $20 is the psychology aspect of it.  People are just going to assume the $80 (most likely kydex) holster they have open on another tab, being pushed by the WaRRiOr with a nice beard and robust quads popping out some short shorts is better quality.  It’s just how our brains work, unfortunately.  Also, people are also so used to seeing Kydex, it’s going to be a struggle to educate them that injection molding is better.  If the quality is as good as they say it is, I hope this works out for Warcat, and they have enough profit margin and industry buzz to thrive.

Yooooo, why is this the first time I’ve seen this:

Print Shoot Repeat is using the Rare Breed FRT-15 Trigger, which apparently doesn’t change the classification of the gun.  This is because it still adheres to all the rules the ATF made surrounding modifications and auto fire.

As I was writing this post, the name Rare Breed seemed strangely familiar, but when I messed around on the Rare Breed Triggers website linked above, I realized I had never seen it before.  Then I googled the name, and it hit me… they are the company that makes those elaborate cringe AFFLICTION-looking AR Lowers for dudes that wear the t-shirt brands with the 8in American Flag on the sleeve, and buy Dodge Chargers on 96 month 23% APR leases.  Whoever at the Rare Breed company decided to separate that whole AR Lower dumpster fire out onto a completely separate website (Rare Breed Firearms) is an absolute genius, and should get a raise.

If you’re curious how the drop in trigger works, here’s a video on that:

They also have other videos on the trigger website with a very lawyery looking lawyer saying it’s definitely legal.

If you like nitpicking (like most of us do), then you’ve come to the right place:

12:57 – This folding stock that turns into a foregrip is epic.  I love how back in the day they had no choice but to either make things out of wood or SOLID STEEL.

COD: Vanguard is on Amazon if you want to pick up a hardcopy.  Kind of sucks that they’re still making hard copies of disposable things like this, when downloads exist.  Basically if they let somehow could let people trade or sell their download (while still making money).. maybe even a full access to everything monthly subscription?.. If that happened the physical copy market would pretty much not be needed.  It would be like the pressed vinyl market.. sure some collectors would buy it, but mainly most people wouldn’t care since it’s on Spotify.

First off, RIP Full Conceal *kisses two fingers and raises to the sky*.. gone too soon 😏:

Holy that vid is intense.. a lot of time and attention to detail is required for a build like that.

Not even a Drake shoutout could save Full Conceal.  Since the company is done for, I vote for them releasing the schematics of the parts.  Would be funny to see the 3d printing guys go to town with the mods.
