.22 LR

This is cool.  I like how we’re at the point where it’s viable to print internal components, not just the frames:

Shooting it:

1:18 – The bolt by itself weighs about 79 grams (which includes the 45 gram tungsten weight).   The original 10/22 bolt weighs 180 grams.  He goes on to say later on that because of the light weight, this particular bolt design only works for subsonic rounds or short rounds.

Cool little project.  I’ll be watching this one to see if he’s successful in getting that bolt weight up.

The guy’s channel is called Heywood Yabuzzoff, and he has a lot of other experimental 3d printed gun vids too.  Definitely worth checking out.

haha if it works, it works though I suppose *shrug*:

I’d recommend watching it on 2X speed.  How this video is able to get 580,000+ views, when some of my gun bros on YouTube get their videos pulled for literally no reason is something I’ll never understand.

<-- .22 LR is a gateway drug tho, amirite fellas? *heh* 😏


She pulled up in the black suburban behind 5% tint, with the pizza box thiCC windows never go down.. and the rest is history:

0:20 – The voldemortquartzen .22 is definitely a nice host.  I love how it’s so quiet you can hear the mechanical aspect of the gun and that’s basically it.

0:52 – Chia pet Little badger .22 break open is the quietest thing I’ve ever heard.

1:29 – ROFL 😂 as soon as the Savage 93R17 came on I thought to myself.. I 100% guarantee Savage got cyberbullied / e-guilted into changing their logo from the Indian head.  Naturally I had to check… yep chalk that up to a victory for the cyberbullies, they now are rocking a dumb looking jagged negative space S logo.  A short interesting history of the old logo on the Smithsonian website.. According to Savage Arms company history, its logo was the result of a deal in 1919. An Indian chief named Lame Deer negotiated a discount for rifles. In return he offered his tribe’s endorsement and an Indian-head logo.  Without getting into the weeds on this one, rolling up my sleeves and keyboard sleuthing maybe there was some recent drama with the same tribe that caused the rebranding?  I’m just speculating.  If you know, tell me in the comments. UPDATE: Appears they changed in Jan 2016. Bruthers in the Facebook comments were OUTRAGED.

also 1:29 – ME: 🗣 “AcKShULLY Miss, you should be wearing eye pro.”

2:04 – I love a 10/22 in any config, but when she folded the robot leg out and put BoOgeR HoOk To BaNg SwiTch I gasped.  I caught my breath then re-gasped when I saw she AGAIN wasn’t wearing any eye pro, and this one is auto 😫.  I had to be “that guy” and let her know in the comments.  UPDATE: they appear to have deleted my comment minutes after I posted it 😂.  BRB calling 1-800-SIL-ENCE and tearing the CMO (Chief Moderation Officer) of Silencerco youtube a new one.

2:30 – EHNNNNNNNNRE as they say in France.  Still no eye pro.  Damn, this girl is dangerous.

3:00 – The Meat & Potatoes 22.  We’re negative again for eye pro *bites nails nervously*.

3:30 – Calico same as the 8 cats she has at home (ok ok that was a joke, she doesn’t have cat girl vibes at all).  Cool lookin gun.  I’m losing my mind over here still at the lack of eye pro.  Literally shaking rn.

Thoughts?  I don’t know how strict you guys are on wearing eye pro when you shoot.. but for me I just 100% always wear it, just like I never ride anywhere without wearing a bike helmet.  I can hear the operators now “BrUH in a firefight you mean to tell me you’re going to be scrambling around looking for eye pro?  TRAIN LIKE YOU FIGHT.” 😏


18 .22 LR Rounds BUZZIN out the front:

Damn I almost forgot about those things!  Last I blogged about a .22LR beehive / hornet’s nest adapter was back in October 2009.  Some of you guys probably weren’t even born yet.  I say that half joking, but I also know from IG that I do have some very young fans.  Do any of them read the blog though?  I feel like if I asked one of them, they would be like “haha a blog?  OK BOOMER… 😂”

3:34 – Accuracy is trash, and the rounds keyholed as expected from the little short non rifled barrels.  He mentions there is also a rifled version called a “dirty dozen” (12 rifled barrels in it).  I’d buy that off the name alone.. too good.

4:58 – Cool footage of him shooting the high velocity rounds.  They actually patterned a lot better too.  Probably because the rounds are higher quality.  I remember for years and years I only used to shoot Winchester 555 bulk packs, then once I got older I was like “maybe I should try out some more expensive .22LR for the heck of it, see how it compares?”.  Night and day difference in every aspect, from care taken in making the bullets themselves to the accuracy you get out of them.

7:52 – haha the chalk round looks so badass flying through the air.  I like how he said you can 3D print your own refills.

I googled the Hunting4Connections thing he had set up at the bottom of the screen.  Their tagline is “The online dating solution for people who live an Outdoor Lifestyle.“.. honestly I’m not mad at it.  Seems like a great idea, as long as there’s a way to filter out girls who wear RealTree + ride horses + like hunting… that’s 3 of 4 solid components to make up a life ruiner.  I’m just looking out for you fellas.

Thoughts?  I hadn’t heard of this Going Ballistic guy before Tom sent me him.  Looking at his past vids, he basically a non-annoying version of Edwin Sarkissian.  Looks like the rest of the world hasn’t caught on yet though because Going Ballistic is currently sitting at 93700 subs compared to Edwin’s 3.59 million.

Gat tip: Tom D


Holy.  If you would have told me he could shoot back to back 200 round belts of .22LR with ZERO issues in that contraption, I would have bet money it would be impossible:

Wow… the brand is Lakeside Machine.  It says on the (terrible) website that they “sold out”, but in the video Dustin says they don’t make them anymore.  So quick!  It’s like one of those carney guns where you gotta shoot out the dot on the paper target.

I had a dick spider .22LR conversion using Black Dog Machine mags I couldn’t get more than a handful of shots off before there would be some type of issue with feeding etc..  I know that’s a completely different system, but I guess that’s why I’m so impressed that this more complicated one runs so well.



Hell yea!

school-girls-gunsOh wait… we’re not excited about this?  It was .22 LR even!  Bah… whatever.  4 year old Landon is doing to shake his head someday at this.

This story probably isn’t as getting much press as it would have if it would have been some cop killer bullets, RIP ammo, or .50 BMG which can take down airplanes.

A lot of people saying this this is probably a setup / hoax.  It really wouldn’t surprise me.  If there’s no scary gun story of the day / holiday, what better fix than to create one?
