I’m a huge fan of integrating guns into design of otherwise mundane household items, so this piqued my interest:

From AR15.com:

First off everything you see on the lamp is real AR 15 parts with the exception of the barrel.
The base is 1/2″ aluminum type II hard coat anodized black and then color filled white, the feet are .50 caliber shell cases compliments of FiftyCalAl.

A 21st century boot for high-speed operators. The lightweight Nike SFB Men’s Boot was engineered to the specifications and needs of global first responder professionals, including: military, rescue and law enforcement. As the lightest, fastest-drying, highest mobility performance boot we’ve ever made, the SFB offers superior comfort for extended wear, straight out of the box.

Just high-speed operators Nike? Not high-speed low drag operators that are in the primary all the time slaying bodies? …Or is that implied?

It seriously blows my mind that only ~37,000 people have seen the following video I quoted in the previous paragraph:

The Special Forces Boot is available in three flavors:

Very talented guy,  I wouldn’t even know where to start.

Pretty neat that he made it in parts just like the real rifle.  I was pretty impressed to see the detachable ELCAN optic, magazine, and working bolt too.

Reminds me of the Wood Glock 19 I posted about a long time ago.

Another very well written article from Vanity Fair.  I started keeping an eye on their website ever since their article on Erik Prince of Xe (Blackwater) back in December of last year.

You shoot one man, you terrify a thousand. That was the theory outside of Afghanistan. Through generations of warfare, it’s what sniping was largely about. By hiding in open sight and shooting precisely, snipers killed enemy officers, sowed fear in enemy ranks, and covered their own army’s retreats. Sometimes they went out to kill opposing snipers, because artillery was an ineffectual response, but rarely did they go off on assassination missions or do Hollywood things, as is generally thought.

The previous post on the Spetsnaz BOOMSTICK reminded me of a hilarious de-motivational posted I had saved from a while back:
