Some good people in rural Illinois have a unique way of sticking up for the 2nd Amendment:

The “crooks carry guns” sign they are putting up at the beginning of the video looks funny when taken out of context of the rest of the signs in the series.

So let me get this straight… Lady at 1:45 lost a daughter in a shooting at a university, and she is “offended” at the “guns save lives” message of the signs.  WTF? and I quote “I don’t think anybody having a gun in that lecture hall would have reduced the number of casualties”.  I’d like to ask her “So even if there was a police officer in the lecture hall you don’t think he could have maybe saved your daughters life?”  My guess is the answer would have been an emphatic “Oh well now you’re talking police… not just a regular person.”

At 2:39 we here from the website president John Boch – “Honestly, I don’t know how many guns I have.  Seriously, I don’t even know how many guns I have that I’ve never shot.”   He probably makes the mistake of dropping that witty line on all the ladies… and that’s why John Boch is married to firearms.

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?

Bushmaster has a shiny new YouTube channel dedicated to the ACR – HERE

You can subscribe to them for updates, and while you’re at it subscribe to my YouTube channel too!

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:

Seems like overnight, The Bushmaster ACR is now available to the public.

A search of gunbroker results in 3 auctions where.  All of which are currently under $3000.

I even watched one end earlier today for $2800 (HERE)

The big question on my mind is, now that the Bushmaster ACR seems to be readily available… what is going to happen with Jesse James’ rifle?

He is the guy that won the first ACR in a silent auction (Details Here) then proceeded to put it up on gunbroker with a starting bid of $8500… only to have it bid up to its current price of $16000.  There are 2 days and 21 hours left in his 14 day auction, and the reserve still isn’t met.

Oh what a difference 2 weeks can make.  All I can say is that I hope he had some sort contract with that wealthy private collector, because otherwise he really shit the bed on this one.   I guess if worse comes to worse he can always just keep the rifle and his unfortunate lesson in economics.

I think Jesse follows the blog, because he commented on the last post.  Hopefully he can chime in and let us know what the deal is.

Looks like Jesse James, the winner of the first Bushmaster ACR released to a civilian, decided he needs money more than the gun:

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=161198693

He looks happy in that picture, but not as happy as I bet he is now.

Oh if only I would have followed his 3 steps to success:

1) Attend AAC Silencer Shoot

2) Place bid on Bushmaster ACR silent auction

3) Win and PROFIT

The current bid on Gunbroker is $15,000!

Pretty sweet profit so far considering Bushmaster’s MSRP is $3061

No telling what the bid will be up to closer to the auction end date of May 30.

I don’t know how much he actually paid for the ACR in the silent auction, but the post on Advanced Armament’s Blog states that $7500 was raised during the auction.  Considering the Bushmaster ACR was not the only product in the silent auction, I think its safe to say that at the current bid, Jesse is already more than doubling his money.  On top of that, the auction doesn’t even include the sweet AimPoint CompM4 and Suppressor that came on his ACR!!!!

According to the details in the auction:

As part of an agreement with a large private collector, I am offering this rifle to the General Public before it is stored in a large walk-in safe forever. This rifle is being offered to the General Public for a ONE TIME ONLY event, once this auction has ended the rifle will be either turned over to the Winning Bidder, or it will go to the private collector. The reserve is set at the private collector’s firm offer. If the reserve is beat, the rifle will go to the winning bidder.

I hate to think what the reserve price is!

Anyone feeling generous?  Email me if you want my FFL info :P
