They nuke their nests with flamethrowers of course:

Why not right?  Any opportunity to use a flamethrower is a good one in my opinion.

I wouldn’t have been the guy steadying the barrel though… probably safe enough, but that doesn’t sit well with me.

Thoughts?

High Speed Low Drag Chinese style from 2010:

So the red guy is good, the black guy is bad.  How typical haha… can I get a “That’s racist!” ? :P

I know it’s a movie, but both those guy handle a race gun like an extension of their body.

You can hit up IMDB for a plot summary and cast list.

Thoughts?  Anyone seen this?

Sadly this isn’t some next-gen Chinese robot.. these people are real:

I sure hope whatever company that makes those grenade fuses has a very low margin of error.  Basically if it detonated a second or two early, there would possibly be 6 people dead. The Chinese especially, seem to love unnecessarily risky stuff like this.  I don’t even consider it impressive… it’s just flat out dumb.

Maybe you guys that have served here in the U.S. have some stories of unsafe things you had to do during training?  I hardly doubt it will compare to “cheating death” by passing around a live grenade or camping out at the end of a shooting range near the targets.  What do I know though.

Training to compensate for muzzle DIVE?  Wait… what?…

Source – NYpost & NationalPost

The rifles are apparently QBZ model 95 or 97 bullpups.

Not too sure what that little training exercise acomplishes, unless its simply set up to break their spirits when they realize they can’t hold those bricks up for very long.

I’m surprised guy #1 in the 2nd picture didn’t get the cane.  He’s cheating by armpitting the rifle. Guy #2 is just an idiot.

Edmonton, Alberta – Two Edmonton artists are shocked that part of their internationally renowned work, The Gun Sculpture, was subject to censorship at a United Nations exhibition in Vienna this summer after pressure from the Chinese delegation.

The 4.5-tonne sculpture, welded together from deactivated guns, landmines and ammunition, has been shown in many countries, including at UN headquarters in New York in 2001, and has never run into problems, said artist Sandra Bromley, who built the sculpture with Wallis Kendal.

And cue the deep “purpose” statement…. now:

The sculpture — which includes 7,000 small arms, all of which were used in conflicts around the world — is a statement about the history of guns. The victims’ photos are designed to “reflect the impact of guns, the human loss,” she said.

Actually the meaning of this does make a lot more sense than lots of the meanings that artists normally have.

Full Story – HERE

Looks like the Borg cube, but with guns! I need to get some large scale gun art such as that for decoration.

I never would have guessed that someone could make an 8.5 minute video on the uses of a single shovel.

Pretty awesome feat of Engineering.   Seems to work pretty well for them in the video.
