bullets

Interesting idea.  Looks very well executed too. For the average person something like this would just be a novelty…. doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want it on all my mags anyways. :P

I could definitely see it being popular with the Law Enforcement and Military crowd if it was proven to be reliable.  If the counting system did fail, at least the magazine would still be functional.

Unfortunately There is no info on when it will be available to the public, or what the cost will be.

Side Note: Thank god they didn’t call it “Clip Count”.

When I told my mom Toby Keith was coming out with a new album, she was excited. She has the rest of his albums, and my parents have seen him in concert a few times.  When I told her the name of the new album was related to my blog, and I was going to write a post about it, she was excited again.

Although I don’t normally listen to anything other than rap, I can appreciate all types of music.  As far as country music goes I’d have to say Toby Keith is one of my favorites.

Not only does he play a mean guitar, and have a great voice, he also puts a lot of effort into supporting our troops.

The title track doesn’t disappoint:

The reviews on the internet seem to be very positive.  I thought it was pretty funny how even in the great review the Washington Post gave it, the writer had to get an anti-gun dig in by calling the album “regrettably titled”… that’s coming from a guy with a hyphenated surname. I’m imagining an argument the writer had with his wife, who told him that when they got married he had to get rid of his guns and take her last name.  Finally, she agreed to compromise and let him keep his maiden name only if he added hers.. but the guns HAD to go.

Two 9 millimeters, plus loads of bullets — 300 of them — and holsters to go with them, somehow got on board an Egypt Air flight out of JFK on Tuesday night. No one knew anything about the guns Mohammed Ibrahim stashed in his checked luggage until they were discovered in Cairo.

Ooops.. someone at the TSA is going to get in trouble for that one. Interesting how a University professor would try and pull a stunt like that… you’d think he would be smarter.  Plus if he’s traveling to another country I believe he would have to get a temporary import permit from that country, and an authorization to export from the U.S. …. maybe he had all those, but figured his work was done and didn’t bother to take the last required security steps at the airport?

If I got my girlfriend one of these, she would likely want to punch me:

For this work, I collected spent bullets at a firing range and made jewelery out of them.

The rings that were created remove the bullet from its original function and they surprisingly turn into a bejeweled object and emphasize the beauty and aesthetics of the bullet when it is distanced from its surroundings

Every bullet retains memories and traces of the journey it underwent from the moment it was fired until it was picked up.

Interesting…

I have two concerns when it comes to this particular art/jewelery:

  1. Some of the corners look incredibly sharp.
  2. Am I the only one extremely conscious of lead poisoning?  At the very least I’d say those should have a clear coat on them for safety reasons.

Definitely an interesting idea.  I’d like to see the results in some ballistic gelatin.

The absence of a copper jacket, and the fact the hole isn’t perfectly centered makes me think it wouldn’t retain its weight very well (if at all).  I have no doubt it would expand like a banshee though.
