.22

Mattv2099 is a sucker for punishment:

Zip-22LR-Weapons-System-2Everything about that gun just makes me cringe.  I love how it’s considered “impressive” when it can make it through a magazine LOL.

That thing is obviously pointless for any sort of self defense.  Range use only just seems frustrating and dangerous.  Lose-Lose situation if I’ve ever seen one.

As soon as he started sticking his KA-BAR all over and inside it, I was just thinking “Please Matt… don’t hurt yourself.  Just do yourself and the world a favor and toss that thing in the garbage before you get hurt.”

Thoughts?  Would operate with?

Mattv2099 is Steph Curry with the shot.  360 with the wrist:

haha at the crank trigger.  That’s legit.  Double feeds are so annoying though.  What if hypothetically you had a mechanical arm (lets say for medical reasons)?  Would you be violating ATF laws by cranking that trigger?

mattv2099-deagle-endoI think that tactical head would be cool if you stuck to small caliber rounds.  That shotgun made too much of a mess.

Thoughts?

The deal is incredible if you need to stock up on .22LR.

$6.50 a brick (500 rounds) for Remington 40 gr. lead nose ammo which looks like it’s similar to Remington Thunderbolt … I don’t think .22LR has been that cheap since the 80s.  I want to know what the CMP gets it for, if they can sell it for that cheap and still make a profit.

In order to get that $65 deal you need to get your CMP affiliated shooting club to buy it for you (pay them back or something), otherwise it’s $90.

You can place your order at the bottom of the page – HERE

The description states that this ammo was made for a US military contract back in 1995.  I assume it was for training purposes back then.  Does the military still use .22LR for anything?

We had a little fun while trying to light matches with a bullet. Turns out, after we got all our fixturing dialed in, we were able to light multiple matches with a single bullet. A phantom high speed camera helps tell the story. Mythbusters only tried to light one match with a bullet, so we figured we might as well try to push the envelope. I’m sure Jamie and Adam have the budget and time to figure out the perfect curve to stack arrange all the bullets in to light all matches.

The gun of choice for them? The ubiquitous Ruger 10/22 (.22 LR)

Damn I love slow motion footage.

Try as they will, other cartridges will never be this cool:

By gluing on magnum rifle primers!

Pretty awesome upgrade for the low price of primers, if all you have for a gun is an air rifle.

I wonder if you need to shoot at a hard surface to set it off, or if small varmints would cause the primer to ignite as well? :grin:  I know some primers are pretty sensitive.

I wish I would have known about this upgrade as a kid back in my daisy air rifle days.
 

A YouTube demonstration:

The pellet used in the video is a .22 pellet, with the open end of the primer facing forward.

I don’t know if “regular” .177 caliber pellets would work as well. The small rifle magnum primers may be too big. I don’t reload, but I’m sure smaller primers are available if needed.
