7.62×39

More interesting wax slugs with Mattv2099:

If you remember, he first did the 7.62x54r wax slugs last week and they worked pretty decently.

Seems like more than anything these just “look” cool.  They end up being expensive, time consuming, messy to make, and not very effective. :(

Mags coupled like a boss:

I was previously aware of these magazines, but for some reason I never thought how awesome they would be coupled together until I saw that video.

For maximum lolz they should have mounted a toilet seat on the AK-47 though instead of that folding stock.

That would be a heck of a lot of weight of 7.62×39 to lug around!  The weight distribution would be so messed up as you started emptying it, it would be hilarious.

Oh yeeeeeeeahhhhh:

7.62×39 bullet in a 9mm casing.  When you get hit with this, it’s SO over!

Glock… I hope you’re listening;  when I win the lottery I’m commissioning you to make a gun in this caliber for me.

Back on July 1st, 2009 a 30-year-old man distraught over a divorce was booked on suspicion of murder after he walked into a Simi Valley, CA dental office and allegedly shot and killed his wife and wounded three others.

Jamie Peredes allegedly walked into the office and began firing an SKS semiautomatic assault rifle.

SKS ASSAULT rifle?  Wow I didn’t know they made those with select fire :roll:

Full Story at the L.A. Times – HERE

One of the other ladies that was working there (Lydia Carranza) managed to survive a gunshot to the chest.  According to the recent story on NBC L.A. the bullet entered her breast and deflated the implant.  The bullet fragments were millimeters away from her heart and her vital organs.

According to Wikipedia, Breast implants are either filled with saline or silicon gel.  Although it sounds unbelievable that a sack full of a liquid similar to water could stop a 7.62x39mm round, if you have ever shot at bottles of water you know how it can slow down a bullet, and destroy the integrity of it.

I believe this a lot more than the bullet proof fat story from a few days ago.  If the gunman indeed carried out the shooting with an SKS, Due to the high energy of the round, I would imagine that Lydia Carranza was either quite a distance away from the shooter, or even got hit due to a ricochet or another indirect method.  It seems improbable that she would have lived if it was a direct hit at close range.  Who knows though… stranger things have happened.

Hopefully this was just done temporarily as “proof of concept”:

Looks like .308 for everything but the one through the nose, which appears to be 7.62×39

Look how much his ear lobes are stretched too.   He should have went all the way and put some 37mm (grenade! :P) rounds through them!

Definitely not a look you would catch me sporting.
