Brandon pulls up long range:

Always supporting ENDO… Monica 😎🚬.  I’ll have to bring that shirt back again.  It sold out a while ago, and I was making room for the new designs so I shelved it for the time being.

13:08 – Brandon confirms that he doesn’t do the videos for money.  He does them for sport.  I’ve mentioned a lot in the past how that’s my own personal philosophy on content creation of any type, and that I feel that is 100% the only way to go.  If you do something you enjoy, and others enjoy it too, the money will follow.

14:32 – He came up with the idea of giving away the custom project rifles to his Patreon supporters.  Wow that’s generous, and an amazing idea.

Thoughts? I think Brandon needs his own custom branded hair pomade for men, and maybe like a dry shampoo for women.

The school is Pacific West Academy.  They released this statement:

Then they blocked all comments on their account, except for that post – where they are getting COOKED.  I don’t know why more companies don’t embrace when a video goes viral.  They obviously stand behind the “Shin Bet doctrine” and everything else they mentioned in the post.  Who cares if some people online who probably never have and never will take a course in their life think the video is funny?  It’s called free marketing. If what they are teaching is indeed as valid as they say it is, this will result in more business for them, not less.

Thoughts?

Not having served in the military myself, I see these types of videos and on one hand feel like I missed out on the experience… but on the other hand I don’t think I ever was cut out for most of what it involves.  The combat related jobs anyways.  Sure, University isn’t “easy” (it wasn’t for me anyways), you don’t just pay some money then end up with a few degrees.  It’s work.  But it’s definitely not even remotely comparable to waking up every morning, hoping you can stay safe another day and eventually make it home, not to mention relying on and putting your trust in a lot of people help make that happen.  I know the psychological impact of the “what if?” part alone would eat me up.

This video was put on my radar by an ENDO reader who was like “Iceman is rocking ENDO! Check it out.”  So badass, always nice to see anyone in the shirts doing their thing.

Related note: I don’t know how many of you have seen HBO’s Generation Kill (it’s incredible, and based on a true story). Iceman is played by Alexander Skarsgård. Seriously if you haven’t watched that mini series, but it to the top of your list.

Seemingly Brandon is almost ready unveil the completed AK-50:

As the end of the video says, April 15 is the day of the “trailer”.  I hope that’s a release trailer, but I’m not sure.  Maybe Brandon will drop a comment below.  I could just email him, but I don’t like to badger people with questions just because I have a dumb blog a handful of people read.

A lot of good ENDO t-shirts in that video. 😎

Thoughts? I can’t wait to see mag dumps with that thing.  Also, since Brandon has a manufacturing license he could definitely make one AUTO.  Seems like a whole can of worms (shoulder hurt-wise anyways) that I wouldn’t want to open, but hey it would definitely make for an entertaining video.

haha PULL UP (pull down? 🤔) from the friendly skies 🛩💨💨💨.  Russia’s largest defense contractor did this:

The Almaz-Antey company filed a patent for the armed drone with the Federal Service for Intellectual Property in 2018. Described as “a fully functioning [gun] inside a set of wings,” the 23-kilogram drone is capable of flying for 40 minutes and staying aloft while shooting. (source)

Holy this looks like the most awkward thing on the planet to shoot.  It’s doable though, so I guess that’s all that matters.

Thoughts? I hope the AK guy starts mounting some AKs on cheap drones for some ridiculous YouTube shennigans.

~1/2 a million bump stocks in the country… how many were turned in?

13:06 – Holy.. the surrender numbers were NOT looking good, if that data is indeed accurate.  Maybe the “MoLoN LaBe” crowd that I poke fun at is actually holding onto them? If so, that implies they give zero shits about the 3-5 years worth of prison time possession of an unregistered machine gun holds (I could have sworn the max sentence was 10 years, but the guy at 13:40 says 3 to 5 *shrug*).  “It’s a bold strategy Cotton, lets see if it pays off for em.”

One thing I’ve always wondered / didn’t like, about bans which turn people into overnight criminals is the potential for you to not even know something is banned.  Relying on word of mouth to keep yourself out of prison hardly seems fair.  If I wasn’t looking at gun related trash on the internet daily, I don’t know how else I would have found out about the ban considering I don’t read anything from fake news networks, or anything Trump talks about.

Another thing I’m curious about now is how much that affected Trump’s core support base.  I’ve already seen hardcore pro-Trump people minimizing it like “LOL whatever bumpstocks are dumb anyways.” which is a fair point, but if the stroke of a pen can make bumpstocks illegal, whose to say after the next shooting or two it will be decided that semi-autos in general are too dangerous for anyone that isn’t military or police?  That’s the road this could to be headed down.  Not good.

14:12 – “What I do know is that they (bumpstocks) will never be used again for mass murder.” -Former senator Ray Lesniak    Yikes 😬 it so cringy when people actually believe this type of thing – a law written down on a piece of paper says it’s not allowed, therefore the pubic can rest easy.

Thoughts?
