1911

I need some rich guy shit like this in my life:

I’d definitely want to take a few classes with it, just to stunt on the poors with Glocks and Wilson Combat 1911s.  Then everyone would make fun of me for likely having tons of classic 1911 jams with it, but I’d roll with the punches and call up the chef to cater lunch for the class just as an apology for putting up with my typical bullshit.

I feel like a lot of rich guys are so cultured and educated they could probably quote their favorite part of Dante’s inferno (in Italian). If you’ve been to any of the major museums in the world, there’s normally at least a few Dante’s Inferno inspired paintings, which btw are typically terrifying looking. Sure they are incredibly detailed and artistically everything about them is amazing, but you’d have to be a serial killer to want something so grotesque in your actual home. I’m more into the nouveau riche stuff like Kaws, George Condo, Roy Lichtenstein, Warhol, Basquiat etc. My other other exposure to Dante’s Inferno is at the end of the Action Bronson song CHOP CHOP CHOP where he samples this old Italian guy reading it haha.  Because I feel the need to always shove rap in your face here’s the song:

Thoughts? You fellas ever wish you hadn’t seen someone in concert, and could just appreciate their music like you used to?  I still like Action Bronson’s music a lot, but when he came to Portland he played like 3 songs.  The lineup for beer was huge and slow moving, and once we finally got some the lights went on and the concert was over.  I can’t stand things like that.  I think that might even even been the last rap concert I went to (and that was more than a few years ago).

I should probably mention Cabot makes the 1911, if anyone actually cares.

A mini 1911 they call the 911.  Ok…

0:24 – Pelican didn’t cut the MFin check, so that’s what happens… they get scratched out.  haha sorry about the link… after I did it I was like “Man this is some thefirearmblog bullshit I’m on right now”, but rather than delete it as I normally would I figured it leave it up and show the thought process.

1:09 – If someone asks you about your subcompact 1911 you have to be like “Um sorry sweAtie it’s hypercompact, do your googles.”

1:32 – Aw man I heard “And an extended magazine for…” and I gasped until they said it only added an additional round.  Don’t even talk to me unless your company is making 30+ rounders.

1:41 – “Carry… for life” It’s not the worst motto I’ve heard honestly.

Since both of these ads aren’t all that interesting you get 2 for the price 1 in this post:

I never did like the “Saint” moniker and the massive lower receiver engraving, but whatever as usual (and rightfully so) no one cares what I think.  Since I first said that I didn’t like it, Springfield probably made a bajillion dollars off it.

0:04 – You just gonna sit at your keyboards and let Springfield talk shit to you about your AR is probably shitty and collecting dust in a safe?  That got me riled up.

1:10 – “Never a victim.  Always a victor.”  Bruh…

These commercials were pretty tame compared to the first two I made fun of.

Thoughts?  Should I invest in Aluminum, or short sell AR-15 stock?  Probably short sell both, because I did the math and by my calculations 82.52% of Aluminum that is produced in the world goes into making AR-15 receivers… so when one market crashes it will take the other with it.  *laughs in duffle bags full of million$*

This guy’s voice sounds like what pure testosterone sounds like:

“Give yourself the edge”… Ok.  The “pistol” is nice, I’ll give them that… however it’s definitely on the NeVa BiN DuN BeFO list along with every other possible configuration of AR-15.  MSRP $1,560.

0:26 – “Battle ready”?  I wish they would have elaborated on that one with specifics.  I just want to hear about the battle they are marketing it for… ISIS?  Home invasion shootouts?  The GubMiNt whEN ThEy trYnA CoMe n TaKe It?  All of the above?

0:37 – LOL this dude hiked to some higher ground just to dump some rounds.

Here’s another ad with the same narrator, for their RO Elite Operator 1911 in 10mm.  Since it’s a 10mm I’m almost positive some wild shit is going to be said:

Again, it looks nice I guess.  Whose buying $1145 1911’s though and what does this 1911 do differently than every other 1911 they and every other manufacturer has made since WWI?  At least with electronics, take Apple for instance if you get a new phone you get the benefits of it being quicker, nicer looking, thinner, nicer screen, better camera, better sound and the list goes on and on.  Would it be a flex to own this gun and show your buddies?  Would they go “WHOA… dude I can’t believe you own the coveted RO Elite Operator 10mm 1911.  So Siiiiiiiiiick.  Can I hold it?”?

0:20 – Comparing the handgun to a kid with the “AHhhh they grow up so fast”.. then on to the “It’s hard to raise a good handgun today.  In a WORLD OF ENTITLED SNOWFLAKES the…” Ok guys I think that’s enough internet for me today.  Oh man it goes further into “HeLL ya BoRtHer” territory after that unfortunately.

0:56 – “Built for lead slingers who don’t believe in excuses OR participation awards”. C R I N G E 😬.

Um so like are you fellas defending your legacy or are you a bunch of cuck snowflake entitled pansies that proLLy voted for Hitlery?  (I feel like the essence of my made up outro must have been in at at least one of the initial script drafts of these commercials 😂)

straight outta Israel:

Some people who just got into guns will be like “WHOA CRAZY” when the see pictures of this thing, but being a seasoned student of the gun internet since Al Gore invented it I can tell you that this is not surprising at all.  I actually am surprised that they didn’t come out with a flashy video to accompany the release of the gun… you know like showing how you can carry it unloaded then awkwardly pull it out and load it when you want to shoot (Israeli style).  Yoooo and horse stance 😭😂 I just remembered this wild post demoing that, where I called the dude Kosher Costa.  Good times good times.

I don’t see this SPIKE for sale on the Bul Armory website, but they do have a massive picture in the top slider calling it a special edition.  I can’t imagine and practical use for a 1911 with spikes…. well maybe one… if it jams in a CQB situation you can just stab someone with it 🤷‍♂️

Ugh guys… I literally cannot:

This is what 1911 guys consider “good content”.  I bet he’ll tell you his 1911 LOOKS like it has a chrome finish, but actually doesn’t because of all the training he does with it.  “You clear the leather enough times with this bad boy i’ll tell you whut the finish shines right up.”

Thoughts?

I post this type of video every now and then.  People sure lose a lot of stuff in rivers:

I started the video embed at the exact time he secures the bag (Future reference haha some of you might have caught).

4:44 – He pulls the gun out.  I’m absolutely flabbergasted that a 1911 was able to stay under water for presumably more than 10 seconds and not be a pile of rust.

9:38 – Will the police department really destroy the gun after 30 days if someone doesn’t claim it?  If so, that’s weak.  You think they would at least give the guy who went out of his way to report it, a couple days or so to pick it up if he wanted it.  At least he got to keep the watch for his trouble. I actually wouldn’t mind a watch like that for hiking. I was thinking about picking up a Suunto Core at some point for that… although it’s been kind of nice that this summer I didn’t get the ridiculous tan line I normally do when I wear a watch hiking.

For entertainment purposes I really wish that bag would have had 🍰🍰🍰% paraphernalia and patches all over it.  The kimber could have definitely used a punisher skull and some Molon Labe too for added humor.

Thoughts?
