PHLster hooks up YouTube’s Chaos311Clarity with a holster for his chrome Deagle brand Deagle:

It astonishes me to see how much work with Kydex (all of it) is done by hand with these guys.  I figured bigger companies had dies and molds for injection molding and then CNC laser cutters for holes etc… not hand held razor blades, toaster ovens, drill presses, hand held heat guns, and homemade forming presses.

I’m pretty good with my hands, and I almost sliced my arm off trying to cut a strip of kydex with a razor blade for a project I was working on.  After that I was like NOT WORTH IT, I need that arm.

You might remember PHLster from the Yoda Kydex Holster I posted about a while back.

I think Jon (Chaos) needs to buy another Deagle, and commission PHLster to do a NY Reload holster.

Thoughts?

It’s clear that I’ll never be operator enough to understand the point of this:

FXhummel1-Tactical-Response-Photographer-Downrange

Check out the full video – HERE

What you’re looking at is a screen shot of FXhummel1 shooting his AK with a photographer snapping away no more than a few feet from him and the target.  This has been going on at Buck Yeager’s Tactical Response training school since 2009 (and probably before) for reasons none other than “buy a killer photo of yourself, and an autographed shirtless photo of Yeager after in the gift shop bRah” as far as I can tell.  Well I’m assuming he actually gives the students the pictures, or puts them up on his forum or something… either way it’s retarded.  There is no waiver in the world you could get me to sign that would make me feel comfortable shooting that close to a human being just for “fun”, considering a <$20 remote camera trigger and a tripod would suffice.  Hell I can even hook my tablet up to my digital SLR, adjust all the settings and focus… zoom etc… from it.  Hell even GoPro cameras look decent now and they are cheap enough that it doesn’t matter.

This next screen shot is from 3:14 where FXhummel is doing move while shooting maneuvers around those plastic drums.  He’s shooting… his guy in front of the muzzle the whole time:

FXhummel1-Tactical-Response-Photographer-Downrange-2

It’s sure lucky that guns and ammunition are so clean NOTHING besides the shiny bullet and clean air come out of the barrel.  Also, there have never ever been accidents at shooting ranges even with professional shooters so I’m sure no one ever has anything to worry about.

It’s funny I actually starred the video in my reader to watch someday when I had a chance, but I got two emails today from people who were outraged and said they unsubscribed to FXhummel because of it.  I really don’t get the whole “I unsubscribed!” thing… but people seem to like to tell others they did that because it shows how mad they are.  Like when people tell me they are never reading my blog again after I say something that pisses them off… LOL sure buddy, I’ll pour out some liquor and try not to drown in my tears every time I think about losing one reader (who most definitely is silently coming back daily anyway).

Thoughts?

This is my life:

Bulk-22LR-Ammunition

I often get several of those types of emails per day.  I know some of you guys are subscribed to the Civilian Marksmanship Program .22LR bulk sale post just for the LULz, so seeing these questions is not new to you.

I’m convinced this is the process:

  1. Sees picture of .22LR brick
  2. Thinks “AHHHHHH I NEED .22LR”
  3. Looks for my email address for 10 seconds rather then taking 5 seconds to read the post
  4. Spends 20 seconds writing email on how they can purchase said ammunition from me

I used to get a lot of emails from people wanting to buy a Glock 18 too.  Some of them were downright shady, others you could tell were foreigners, and some just seemed to be clueless of the rules.

It’s tough work running a blog sometime haha. :P

Yay lets shoot down government drones because we have nothing better to do. *Facepalm*… Derp ahead:

This story could be summed up as “Our town sucks, and we just want to get on the news”.  What a waste of everyone’s time.

drone-aircraftIf I worked for DHS I would dispatch drones there just out of shotgun range to hover around taking pictures just to piss those people off.  Although I think drones are possibly the most awesome thing to happen war-technology-wise in the last 10 years, I don’t like the idea of them being used to spy on average Americans one bit.  You just can’t go all Buck Yeager on them and start killing them though… there are rules to this shit.

Thoughts?

A transparent polymer 80% AR-15 lower receiver from Eighty Percent Lowers:

Clear-80-percent-Lower-ar15-Receiver

The announcement was made as a “coming soon” on the EP Lowers facebook page.  People like these 80%’ers because you don’t need to buy them through an FFL.  You’re going to need some tools and some time to finish them though… as you can see in this video it takes around an hour with hand tools if you know what you’re doing.  Definitely a gimmick, but if you need a project to kill some time why not right?  It would be funny if that 2nd polymer that you have to mill out was found to be soluble in some type of solution, so no milling was actually required.  I don’t know the intricacies of 80% law but I’m sure the ATF would shit bricks and shut something like that down though.

They have several colors you can buy their lowers in already, and they are all $100 over on their website.

Thoughts?  Is transparency something that you’re currently lacking in kit and you feel you need?
