Definitely an interesting way to hold a rifle.  I can’t imagine that not using the sights on the rifle, and shooting from the hip would be endorsed by any police force in the world.

Also, what’s with the cross draw setup he has for his revolver? Is that something people do with outside the pants hip holsters?  Seems like a great way to unnecessarily muzzle sweep people every time you pull the gun out.  The only time i’m used to seeing cross draw is on shoulder rigs, but in that case it is necessary to have it on the opposite side.

Someone made a hilarious parody of the ad:

I was sent this today from Bushmaster:

Drake from Magpul dumps 10 rounds with the 14.5″, then proceeds to switch it out for the 10.5″  barrel in no time flat and shoots 10 more. Pretty slick system.

The ACR looks pretty awesome with the 10.5″ on it!

Bushmaster is taking requests for any specific ACR videos you guys would like to see.

Type your requests in the comments section below this post.

I really like the particle effect with the mud, water, and ice in the video.

As I was posting this article I realized that similar footage was released in the Leaked Remington ACR Promo Video that came out right before the last shot show.  The rifle in that is FDE ( Flat Dark Earth ) colored though, and this one is black.

I forget, is FDE the “new” black?  Or is it multicam that all the high-speeds are now rocking?

Chicago’s rising homicide rate spiked on Tuesday with a murder-suicide that left three people dead and three more bodies found in a car.  Police Supt. Jody Weis knows that he will ultimately find himself on the hotseat for the surge. But, he’s got a new defense.   He’s creating a new category of “indoor” homicides — and downplaying what police can do about them…“Those homicides that are outdoors — the ones that I do believe we have a good possibility of preventing — we’re around 98 homicides for Chicago outdoors. That’s as low as it’s ever been, except for 2007, when I believe we had 97 homicides outdoors as of this date,” he said.

Interesting way to deflate the numbers. I wonder how he can even pitch that with a straight face?

As you can see, I’m in a photoshop mood tonight.

Looking through the MSNBC Guinness Book Of Records anniversary photos today, I came across one that oozed both awesomeness and tacticalness… #26:

Naturally I had to see more, so I checked YouTube…

Seeing it rip through the house, and out into the snow is absolutely incredible!

Can you imagine the look on a bad guys’ face when one of those cruises through the door and is staring them down.

I wonder what the specs on the armor are?

I am curious to also know the price on one of these… Not that they would be available for non L.E. purchase anyway.

I want EVERYTHING that Howe & Howe makes!  If you get a chance check out the page for the Mini Rip, which is actually available to consumers.  Bad news is that it’s $55000

AND NOW….

Some of the less impressive “records”:

  • Longest distance for a person pulled by a horse while being on fire (#28)
  • Most eggs crushed with head in one minute (#33)

I could go on and on… but those two in the 52 picture set take the cake as far as stupidity goes.

I don’t know how you set up a meeting with a representative from the Guinness book (besides going on one of those TV shows), but I’m pretty confident that I could beat a number of those useless records with very little practice or expense. I don’t really know what I would have to gain from that though, besides most of my friends and family being embarrassed they know me.

Seeing as the criteria to get into the book seems to be pretty loose, I should motion to get entry for a new record… “Most compulsive checks for new stories to blog about in one day” or “Most time spent thinking about guns in one day”

The Bushmaster ACR is sure a nice looking rifle, I just can’t stomach the price tag.

Check out the videos for the field strip and overview:
