Beaver county Pennsylvania sheriff candidate with this clever idea:

ammo-vending-machine

A vending machine operated by a candidate for Beaver County Sheriff that distributes firearms ammunition is raising some eyebrows. The machine is installed inside of the Beaver Valley Rifle & Pistol Club, offering both rifle and handgun ammunition and operating in the same fashion as vending machines commonly used to sell snack foods.

A lot of stupidity in the comments if you follow the above link.  People love being experts on topics they know nothing about.

To make this even cooler, the sheriff candidate in question Sam Piccinini (too bad surnames aren’t legal to use in Scrabble right?), actually owns the company which manufacturers the ammo.  He had the idea for the vending machine because a lot of members at that range couldn’t find non-jacketed ammo anywhere in stores.

Related note: How epic of a name is the “Beaver Countian”.  Such a great ring to it ahah.

Vigilant Spectre talked to them at SHOT.  Kind of hard to hear yea… Spectre needs to get an external puffy mic next year:

Summary: The ammo everyone complains about for stupid reasons but uses anyway because it’s cheap and awesome, now has various optics. It’s obvious WOLF knows their position in the market and are pretty comfortable there.  They aren’t out trying to beat Hornady, and that’s ok.

Wolf-Ammo-LogoI’d like to say check out the WOLF website, and read all the awesome info and see the prices on the optics… but there isn’t any mention of them yet up there. :/  Hopefully soon now that shot is over.

Thoughts?  Would potentially operate with considering the price point is likely agreeable?

Yea… this is cool:

The objective of the EXACTO program is to revolutionize rifle accuracy and range by developing the first ever guided small-caliber bullet.  The specially designed ammunition can change direction in midair.

Full article over at Stripes.

DARPA is so epic, I CAN’T EVEN.  Like it mentioned in the article, you definitely don’t want to have snipers total rely on technology like this.

Bullet-Slicing-Water-Drop-2I wonder if X-ACTO brand knives will get all up in DOD’s face for trademark infringement?

FPS Russia wearing ear and eye protection and shooting incendiary:

FPS-RussiaOmg proper safety… it’s a miracle.  Mattv2099 prophesied on the last Royal Nonesuch video I posted, that Royal is going to be the next big thing because of his disregard for safety.  FPS started out disregarding safety too.  Actually I think he has been wearing custom ear plugs for a while though, but they were flesh colored so they didn’t really stand out.

4:25 – LOL that paint can was coming for him!

Gotta be careful with incendiary that you don’t mess around and start a forest fire.

Royal Nonesuch, the homebrew gun prince:

Royal-Nonesuch-BowmagDamn those things detonate fairly reliably, that’s crazy! The .308 are obviously the best… too bad it ends up being just an expensive novelty.

Eye pro for WHAT?! *smh* Boys will be boys *in best grandma voice*

Anyone do any of this crazy stuff Royal Nonesuch does? Or do you just like to watch from the sidelines like me?
