She even makes a witty comment about being “armed” at the beginning:

The shooting starts at 4:50.  Before that the guy is just showing her his guns.

She also reminds other armless people who are learning how to shoot guns, not to put their toe on the trigger until they are ready to shoot.  Jeff Cooper would be proud.

I’m always blown away how positive some disabled people are about life.  Good for her, I couldn’t handle that for 5 minutes.

Glad to see the guy hosting her, didn’t troll her with a Deagle.

 has a youtube channel where she records herself doing various things (without arms of course).

I posted about one other guy shooting with his feet a while back which you might want to check out.

Thoughts?

According to their website the starting price is $1295.

It’s too bad they don’t get into the upper / bolt market separately… I’m sure they would make a killing if people could just buy that and not a whole new gun.

Video of it in action – HERE

It’s weird when you can see right through the upper when the bolt locks back!

On 1 April, TACOM Life Cycle Management Command issued the Maintenance Information Message MI 10-040 “Camouflaging Specific Small Arms” stating that, given command approval, Soldiers are permitted to camouflage the M4/M16 weapon systems with paint.

As the guide says at the end, weapons painting has been elevated to a fine art. I don’t know where the awesome examples I saved on my harddrive went, but some of the paint jobs I have seen are breathtaking.  The example the have in the PDF is pretty weak looking as far as artistry goes, although it still would likely look better than black in the right environment.

I’d like to see the military started paying soldiers that are also artists extra money to paint rifles. The talented guys shouldn’t have to work for free just because their whole unit would rather not walk around with the plain old black color scheme.

After hearing all these rumors about how awesome the PA MD-0x series optics are I HAD to give it a run around the block. Of course, by “run around the block” I mean to subject it to environments that any commercial optic might run into. It’s not a series of unrelated, outlandish tests AT ALL.

I just noticed Remington Arms Factory – Ghost Adventures was up on YouTube in 4 parts:

Description of Episode and some background info at the Travel Channel – HERE

I haven’t watched the episode yet, but it looks pretty creepy.  I guess that’s the point of the show though, because if they showed up and didn’t make a big deal out of it no one would tune in and watch. Maybe I would second guess living there though :P

For more information the factory’s pending demolish see the previous post – HERE

The Remington Arms factory in Bridgeport, Connecticut is a spectacular 1.5 million-square-foot structure of 13 interconnected buildings stretching over 76 acres. Now its future is imperiled. Long a monument on the city’s East Side, it was originally built by the Remington Arms-Union Metallic Cartridge Company beginning in 1915 to fill an order for one million rifles and 100 million rounds of ammunition to supply czarist Russian armies. Later, the building turned out bayonets, Colt automatic pistols, Browning Machine Guns, and automatic rifles. In 1920, General Electric purchased the property, and produced thousands of small kitchen appliances in the plant, but GE slowly pulled manufacturing from the building, and closed it entirely in 2007.

Whenever I see old buildings like this, all I see are luxury lofts!

Think Tribeca / SOHO in NYC … this would be perfect for such a project.  Maybe there isn’t a market for such a development in Bridgeport though? I have never been, and I have no idea how sprawling the real estate and job markets are there.  The building would definitely work well though.  Plus, how badass would that be to live in a luxury version of an old Remington factory?  These industrial areas never seem to be in very low crime areas either, but from what I’ve observed, as long as you have security and indoor parking people don’t seem to mind.  If I were in charge of the project, for posterity there would have to be at least one building dedicated to firearms.  It looks like there would be more than enough room for a few indoor ranges; judging by the satellite view the individual buildings are approximately 100m in length.

No matter what, I hope they find some use for the buildings.  I’d hate to see them demolished, but the sad truth is that the bricks are probably worth a mint and will be sold to builders who will pay a premium, and use them in new homes.
