ar-15

This is how the woke people in 2019 are doing it.  Try and catch up SwEaTy 💅:

$1350 on the Iron Horse firearms website for an entire thumb operated rifle.  Here’s what they say the advantages are:

The TOR model has several advantages over traditional trigger implementations, allowing shooters maximum control by employing the strongest digit on the hand. Additionally force applied to the trigger is inline with the shooters center of aim, opposed to traditional left or light error common with traditional trigger pull.

  • Shortened learners curve for new shooters
  • Increased dexterity in cold weather conditions
  • Trigger guard completely encases the trigger which eliminates the chance of snagging the trigger in brush or dense vegetation
  • Alternative to standard trigger design for disabled shooters

I’ll just take their word for it.  It’s a double edged sword I guess… I did keep asking for “innovation” in this industry.  That said… user ebxt6 in the Instagram comments said this was a 100 year old idea from Winchester… Sure enough, I had to look no further than industry OG Big Larry Pimpin Potterfield:

Thoughts?

Looks like a lot of R&D and money behind this one:

It looks really nice. I hope it works out well for Daniel Defense.  Probably good to have at least one foot out of the door before that inevitable AR-15 market crash I’ve been forecasting.

Available for $2200 on the Daniel Defense website.  I don’t really know enough about comparable bolt action rifles to know if that price hits some sort of sweet sport or not.

Thoughts?

THE AR-15 IS OFFICIALLY CANCELLED:

Here’s what they look like when they are stuck on:

$7.95 for all 7 sets of designs over at StRiKe InDuStRiEs 😬.

Thoughts? I’m sure we’re still headed towards the bottom at warp speed.

VICE looks into it… it’s wild:

Ok I’m like 10 seconds in and I’m already like 🤔🤔🤔.  Where do I get a bullet crown to wear around the crib to annoy my girlfriend with?  I need a real kingly .50 BMG one 😂.

1:17 – 1911 + Karambit.  A classic combo for those with EXTREMELY fine taste 🍷.  haha they keep showing this setup over and over during the next few minutes.

2:47 – What’s the point of being armed at church, if all your guns are ziptied inoperable?  That’s called faking the funk.

4:40 – This lady speaks the truth.

6:07 – Man man’s got ducks in a pond, and a crib that’s on a hill which can see three states.  That’s a holy flex ⛪️💪.

6:37 – Crown / AR-15 silhouette custom camo hahha

9:27 – I hope we get to see him shoot a 20mm (to match that round on his desk) later.

12:58 – The VICE girl is looking like “This dude with the combover can’t be serious with this terrible Happy Birthday flip?”

13:13 – They keep showing that delicious looking fruit, and it’s making me want a fruit salad.

23:16 – LOL his brother is the owner of KHAR ARMS.

28:07 – Ah there it is… wolf and predator talk.  I knew this guy was a sheepdog 😂.

If this guy doesn’t say “If you come at the king, you best not miss” like Omar from the wire, then he’s not only doing himself an injustice but also his congregation.

Thoughts?  What do you think, does Gun King read ENDO?  He’s definitely putting his Harvard education to work.

Yoooooooo.  This is what we call GAS in the industry (by “we” I mean strictly myself… to myself, and then I laugh about it out loud):

You heard the ad “CLICK THERE WANT GRIPS!  DOWN IF YOU THE”.  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  My brain melted when I saw this… I wish I knew who made it so I could hit all 5 million of you daily readers with the link.

I can tell Sig definitely expects us all to yell out the standard “Hell Ya BrUther” at some point while watching the video:

Yea they seriously called this new AR-15 they are pushing the “Tread”.  Hitting us with that long snake USA flag logo.  Man, the pie hitters are going to love this one.

Oh puke 🤮, if you click through to their Tread website, they are really selling it as the every-man-and-woman’s rifle of choice.  In the looping top video on the site there are girls riding horses, mountain biking , throwing hay bales, dudes running, driving tractors, splitting wood.. a business man, and on and on.  How 2018 of them haha. The video is not breaking any ethnic diversity records, but it’s diverse enough to probably not elicit angry comments about that. If you click through to see the comments on the YouTube video, they are getting cooked… well more like sautéed slightly.  Free smoke, free smoke ayeeeeee. And we have my dude (I don’t actually know this guy) Kalashnikyle who came through with the ill “HE”LL ya BorTheR” comment. Monica hehehe *in an extremely Denzel Washington training day voice*.

A bit further down on that tread website the actual sentence “THE RESTLESS SOUL WITH A WILD HEART” appears.  Then “Mountain air and the feel of a saddle beneath her keep Maggie on the hunt, her TREAD makes sure she’s ready for anything.”  oh my god please get this girl a trenta pumpkin spiced latte, some ugg boots, a Browning logo tattoo for her wrist, a “girls hunt too” sticker for her Jeep, and a “live laugh love” sign for her home.

Don’t get me wrong, the gun looks fine… I’m just not sure why it exists.  Is there still a flourishing AR-15 market?  I know I’ve raised that same question in the past a few times as well… I just don’t get it.  Who is buying all them?  Is there any market share left to steal from anyone else in this realm?  I’ll just go out on a limb and predict that Sig Sauer has the luxury of doing something just because (even if it’s maybe doomed from the get-go to make no money), basically to have a dog in the fight and continue to expand their lineup.  Their regular day to day sales through their vast dealer network + that $580 Million army contract tells me they probably aren’t hurting.  Who knows though, I’m sure when you employ a bajillion people and have expensive buildings, expensive equipment etc.. money disappears quick.

Thoughts?  You hoping they are drop safe? *you know I had to do it to em* 😂
