I’m sure Magnum Research sells a lot of Desert Eagles in general, and probably even a lot of this model (TG-TS Titanium Gold Tiger Stripes):

The Desert Eagle just doesn’t do it for me.  It’s bulky, incredibly heavy, and very expensive.  Yea you can get it in the big boy .50AE caliber, but I don’t really see the purpose of that either.  You are supposed to be using your handgun as a first method of defense, or as they say to “get to your rifle”.  I know it’s a good gun, but I just think that there are better options for most applications.

I saw this the other day on the internet and I thought, what a perfect companion for owners of a tiger striped desert eagle:

Yea it’s just a photoshop… but really, “if you build it they will come” I think definitely holds true again in this case.

You can check out the Desert Eagles over at Magnum Research – HERE

Being a Minnesota company as well, I definitely support Magnum Research and would like a few of their other guns.  That new .380 Micro Desert eagle is intriguing, and they have some nice looking rifles based off the Remington 700 platform which I am definitely interested in.

The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program, NRA’s groundbreaking gun accident prevention course for children, has surpassed yet another milestone by reaching its 23 millionth child.

The purpose of the Eddie Eagle Program isn’t to teach whether guns are good or bad, but rather to promote the protection and safety of children. The program makes no value judgments about firearms, and no firearms are ever used in the program. Like swimming pools, electrical outlets, matchbooks and household poison, they’re treated simply as a fact of everyday life. With firearms found in about half of all American households, it’s a stance that makes sense.

Eddie Eagle is never shown touching a firearm, and he does not promote firearm ownership or use. The program prohibits the use of Eddie Eagle mascots anywhere that guns are present. The Eddie Eagle Program has no agenda other than accident prevention — ensuring that children stay safe should they encounter a gun. The program never mentions the NRA. Nor does it encourage children to buy guns or to become NRA members. The NRA does not receive any appropriations from Congress, nor is it a trade organization. It is not affiliated with any firearm or ammunition manufacturers or with any businesses that deal in guns and ammunition.  (Source: National Rifle Association)

Although it would be impossible to really know how many lives this program has saved, I’m sure the number is huge.

If your kids haven’t seen the video, the NRA actually has it available for free on YouTube:

The cartoon is short and very entertaining.  I am shocked that it only has about 29,000 views!

Vancouver Sun Full Story – HERE

The ETF was responding to calls of a man in an office with a gun — tipped off by a nosy neighbour whose apartment overlooks Bell’s office. The neighbour thought he saw a real pistol.

Toronto police said the response wasn’t an over-reaction.

God forbid someone besides a police officer would have a gun at work.

I was actually over at Brickgun the other day checking out their different LEGO guns, so when I got wind of this story I knew exactly where he got his LEGO gun when I saw the picture in the article.

From Video:  “They cuffed me and threw me against the wall”

Was that really necessary?

I’d hate to think how they would respond to a bunch of kids playing airsoft in the park, there would probably be casualties.

To purchase one of these menacing looking guns head over to Brickgun – HERE

The Glock type model from the story is called a “Semi-Auto with Mag”… it consists of 277 LEGO pieces and is $69.99 + Shipping

There are also Desert Eagles, Mac-11’s, Beretta 92, and H&K MP5 type LEGO kits availble for purchase.

Purchase at your own risk if you live in Canada :P
