Like the prosecution and the legend Alfred Tennyson always says “Better to have loved and lost, then to have never loved at all”:

That truly is an ENDO certified “TWPLI SPECIAL” (The-Prosecution-Will-Love-It Special), so much cringe I can’t even. ROFL at the ATF doing a hypotenuse measurement for length of pull.  If the owner of the rifle is into tattoos, I hope he gets one of a measuring tape at an angle to commemorate the time he didn’t go to jail.  Oh and he needs a tattoo of his wife matrix-dodging a thrown cellphone.  Yea yea throwing a cellphone at a significant other isn’t funny.  I wouldn’t throw one at my girlfriend, which shouldn’t be surprising because I also don’t have a SBR as atrocious as that.  For ladies in the dating scene that read ENDO, a major red flag should be if a dude shows you his gun collection and he has anything that even remotely resembles the above.  DATE IS OVER 🚪.  RUN 🏃‍♀️💨💨💨, don’t walk.

There is a long write up about this case on this at TTAG.  Warning, anything you THINK might be a link to somewhere useful, probably isn’t (I’m sure you guys know that by now).  I remember the first time I saw viglink on a website (like TFB or TTAG) I assumed they had a terrible virus.  Nope I was wrong… just a very obtrusive very shitty monetization technique.  Try not to sign up for an American Express credit card, or fall for the trap of the girl in the white shirt trying to get you to click the “35 Embarrassing Photos You Must See”.  Sometimes I wonder if I could get ENDO up to 3.8 billion page views and 2.9 million comments per day while monetizing the shit out of it like TTAG, then cash out and retire living large like Robert Farago.  Then I get really real with the self reflection and am like “Mike… come on now, you only are capable of shitposting” 😂😭 I guess I could hire some vetted non-shitposters, but that sounds like a lot of work and the truth of the matter is I don’t want ENDO to become a serious place.

Thoughts?

Looks like all his videos are back online, and he’s stoking the content dumpster fire once again:

That’s some good-ass content.  Not only did I love the tactical horse stance, but I also enjoyed the fact he fired the video up on his own facebook account, then recorded the screen on his phone.  That’s stuff they just don’t teach you in video school.  The big dogs learn hacks like that on their own and excel 🤘🚀.

Oh man, now this video below is really something.  Called “Accelerated Entry – Part 1”:

Part 2 is equally as epic:

Then for those that aren’t as hiGh SpeEd as VODA he has a couple “Delayed Entry” videos up as well.  They are boring so I’m gonna save the embed kilobytes, but I think it goes without saying that he probably recently watched Sicario, or HEAT or something and was really feeling himself.  Speaking of really feeling himself, here he is stroking his ego and some sort of talk he put on about his women’s program which he calls “M.A.C.K.™️”… which is actually a very poor pick word-wise even though it’s a clever acronym.  I assumed maybe my knowing that “Mack” was slang for hitting on girls was a regional thing… but nope the entire internet is in consensus that is the definition.

What’s the patch on his “uniform”… something something MALL SECURITY?

I’m seriously getting dumber following this guy’s online career, but I do it for you guys, for the sport, and for the glory so it’s all good.  Obviously I don’t disagree with some of what he says in the video, but when it’s mixed in with so much cringe it’s pretty bad.

Thoughts?  You a fan of the drop leg as much as VODA?  Did any of you fellas ™️ an acronym or do anything notable like film an accelerated entry video lately?  Heh yea I didn’t think so, me either 😏😂.  I gotta wonder if VODA is turning any of these ™️’s to Ⓡ’s?  Because I’m a sucker for punishment I searched the USPTO but couldn’t see anything after the first 20 or so clicks that appeared to be his.  Also, he’s doing a lot of stuff for the ladies lately… is this a way to meet women or is it purely altruistic?  I’m not hating on the last point if it’s not altruistic, I’ve done some stupid things and went to some stupid places I wouldn’t have otherwise went in the past to meet girls… not “Make a protection program for women and call it MACK; powerpoint presenting it to a largely empty room while wearing a uniform with two drop leg holsters on” stupid mind you, but still.

The fact this post was seemingly “CoNtrOveRsiAL” on instagram was surprising to me:

I think you guys know by now that I don’t really hero worship.  Nor do I know the entire history of everyone in the training and shooting community, and their often decades worth of military experience.  I appreciate the service, I just only have so much room in my brain and I can tell you that very little of it is occupied by information on people I don’t know and will never know.  Someone sends me a blurry video of a guy in a fishing vest on a treadmill… I watch it and go “heh”, impressed that he hit all the targets and I thought it was “heh” funny enough to make a post because he actually brought the treadmill to the range, found a place to plug it in and decided to shoot off of it.  I had no idea at all who this guy was, but in the CaRRyTrAiNeR post about it, it mentioned his name was “Dave Harrington“.  I googled his name and got that Panty-oh link.  I read it and thought to myself “Impressive credentials” then I moved on with my life.  It didn’t make the juxtaposition of the treadmill at the shooting range any less funny.

Like 90.3% of the comments on Instagram and guys letting me know it’s “Super Dave”.  If you could leave a comment here to also let me know it’s “Super Dave” or “Dave Harrington”, or maybe even cut and paste his credentials I would be very grateful haha.  Oh and bonus points if you can flex that you know Super Dave… drop me an anecdote in the comments like a few others did on IG… I especially liked this one “Super-Dave is a great guy. Fortunate to know him. It was actually his birthday last Friday.” from stevebainton94 haha FLEXXXXXXXXX.

I sometimes wonder if other industries are like this one.  Like for instance say I’m hanging out with a bunch of engineers that work in tech… specifically we’ll say Intel.  Then I’m like “Any of you guys see that new ipad pro yet?  I can’t believe they still haven’t been able to design / manufacture a damn ipad without a camera bump… I mean like come on!”  Would one of the Intel engineers be like “UH FIRST OF ALL YOU BETTER CHECK YOUR TONE.  Not only is Jony Ive the greatest of all time, but Sam Tranoff and Bentley McDonagole (made up names for the purpose of this story) who are in charge of optics and camera housing design NOW spent 12 years at Harvard, and other 7 years each at MIT, only to go on to get janitorial jobs at Apple then work their way up through the ranks to lead of optics and camera housing design.  So Yeah I think they know a bit more than you, and the bump is there because it should be, not because it has to be.”

Thoughts?  Unexpectedly CoNtrOveRsiAl? I thought so.  It has been a weird Wednesday fellas, let me tell you.

James Reeves is a gun prince among men.  Good taste too with the Rolex Submariner… hehe Monica.  I can’t say that I share his love for shorts with a 1″ inseam, but I also am 6’4″ and would look like a damn giraffe in them.  Whether or not James rocks those shorts on a regular basis off camera, I don’t know, but what I do know is it has become an integral part of his brand now that even his instagram account is @gunshorts haha.

9:19 – I wonder if those are brass scars?  Also, anyone speak Russian… What does Jade Struck’s tattoo say?

Yoooo and this Halloween special that James did is the best thing I’ve seen in a while.  I don’t know why it didn’t show up in my YouTube feed, but I saw it again just now on IG when I looked at his page and I was reminded I should post:

How does that only have 27,000 views?  I know the “It’s gotta be the algorithm that’s screwing gun videos” is an overused thought but seriously with the 543,000 subscribers TFB has why haven’t more people seen this?  This is the type of gun content I have internet access for period.

LOL I find the fact this exists with free world wide shipping very hard to believe 😬:

$100 at Silencer-Sale and it’s 80%, and they ship “practically all over the world” with free delivery 😬😬😬.  This is the exact text from that page on the website:

  • Gen 1-4 model 17-41
    Requires rework is not a prohibited product since, it is in an inoperative condition 80% drop It is not illegal for individuals to own these parts in current form.
  • The customer and I are not required to inform.
  • Requires basic tooling to finish. Just replacing the backplate. This is a much more cost efficient way to own a full auto Glock.
  • The kit comes with instructions.,
    When sending out we specify as spare parts for a motorcycle, we deliver practically all over the world, the delivery is free of charge

Is this a Pooh tier / god tier honey pot?  Oh man I cringed so hard at the “we specify as spare parts for a motorcycle”.  So on their own company website, they are openly basically being like “Yea rather than put GUN PART on the customs form we’re going to lie and put motorcycle part just so it hopefully sneaks through… sound good potential customer?”  Ooooooof my soul.  The website is actually registered to someone in Russia if you hit up the WHOIS.  Turning a Glock from semi to auto there might be perfectly legal to do on any given Tuesday I don’t really know.  In the US there are SEVERAL more hoops to jump through to say the least if you want to keep your freedom and butthole safe.

These have popped up in the past on Amazon and various other fly-by-night websites, but they seem to disappear (thankfully) soon afterwards.

Oh and I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention that there are MANY other products on the Silencer-Sale website.  You know, the usual basic stuff like AR-15 lightning links, baffles to retrofit airsoft silencers to various real calibers (7.62, .300, .308), baffles to change oil filters into suppressors, and even the classic Maglite suppressor retrofit.  YIKES fellas… yikes….

RIP to some people’s dogs in advance.  Thoughts?
