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?

Where’s a shark to mount this on when you need one?

It’s only a matter of time before the lethality of lasers available to the public increase and the price goes down enough for politicians to start flipping out about them.  I remember those incidents from a few years back when derps were aiming them at helicopters and planes and blinding the pilots.  Thankfully that seemed to stop for now but popping balloons is child’s play… give it some time and the crazies will be doing all sorts of new retarded and disgusting things with this amplified light we call the laser.

Shark-with-laser-on-headDoes the right to keep and bear arms include laser guns?  Pfffft of course it does.  Even high battery capacity gatling assault laser guns.

Lots more laser gun creations over at Laser Gadgets, the guy’s website.

Thoughts?

Google glass is an amazing concept… but I foresee being annoyed with an increasing number of people when it goes mainstream.  Glassholes:

Google-Glass-Crosshairs-Gun

I already find people can’t handle doing things on their cellphone in public while being normal.  Why do I want to walk behind a whole group of people going 1/2 speed looking down at their phones texting?  Why do I have to thoughtfully dodge people who aren’t looking where they are going while looking down?  Don’t they know I’ve got better shit to do like eat crepes and make fun of stuff online?  I picture the mainstream adoption of Google glass creating a whole new category of annoying people.  Most of these people will probably not fully jump onboard glass initially, so they will be walking around with a cellphone still too.  This will basically mean they will be in the matrix and have no idea what’s actually going on in the real world.  Yea I’ll probably just quit leaving the house eventually in order to keep my sanity.  I recently found a good woodfire pizza place that delivers and I can get liquor delivered to my door, so as you can see I’m pretty much set.

Oh yea and if you want that crosshairs add-on, or an number of other douchy addons you can check out this guy’s kickstarer campaign.

Thoughts?  Any of you guys have Google Glass yet?

Bow-game 22plinkster:

Total showoff :P  So much to take into account with this type of hunting even more so than with firearms.

Robin-Hood-Men-In-TightsI’d need a high capacity assault quiver if I was going to attempt this, and even then I’d probably leave pissed off with no arrows and no birds in the hand.

Thoughts?

A 30 second short from Carnik Con:

*Slow clap… gradually speeding up to a fast clap* 30 seconds barely wets my Carnik Con whistle but whatevs, I suppose I’ll survive.

CarniK-Con-YouTubeI love how someone with access to so many NFA items has such a great sense of humor.  If every firearm he shot in videos was semi-auto, it wouldn’t be quite as funny.

Thoughts?

I really hope the prop gun was a Glock 7:

I-Hate-Bees-Bruce-WillisThe thing about Glock 7’s is they can go through airport x-ray machines, and they cost more than any of you make in a month.

I haven’t seen the first RED movie yet, but I hear it was alright.

Thoughts?  Stupid move considering blank guns have injured and even killed people in the past?
