Half Cocked

Man… “custom Glock Slides” are the new thing apparently.  So many companies making them.

The usual expected “marketing” talk in the video.  Not something I’d buy, but I’m sure PWS throwing their hat in the ring of Glock custom options is probably a decent move considering they already have the manufacturing equipment.  Price is $449 with stock sights.  Meh.. I fail to see how these mods will really help anyone to do anything useful other than make you appear like more of a high speed low drag operator because your Glock slide corners aren’t radius’d, they are 45 degree’d and you have serrations at the front for “press check” as they say at 0:54.  Press checks are such an operational move; especially when you don’t have to be a basic bitch and only grip the slide by the rear serrations. Note that loaded chamber indicators are also for nerds… avoid giving those the time of day at any cost.  The original Glock slide wasn’t broken… don’t fix it.  Rant over.

Glock-Diamond-Bedazzled-Pendant-JewelryOn another note, I was shocked at the YouTube comments.  People were actually asking PWS to bring back “Half Cocked” (that cartoon trainwreck).  I didn’t do any secondary research on the commenters but something tells me they must be PWS employees or involved in the cartoon in some other fashion haha.

Thoughts?  Do you smell a Kickstarter in the works to bring Half Cocked back?

This is the official last post I do about this unless it starts being related to guns at some point:

I thought PWS was a firearms company, not a productions company that produced shitty cartoon soap operas.

PWS-Half-Cocked-Cartoon-LogoIf you like throwing 6.5 minutes of your life away watch the video.  Otherwise take my word for it and spend that 3 minutes writing PWS an email asking them “WHY?”.

I can’t be the only one who thinks this cartoon is a complete waste of time.  I have seen glowing comments on other blogs about it though. *shrug*

Thoughts?

If you’re looking for a cartoon about guns, move along… move along…

I thought PWS was a firearms company and this was supposed to be a firearm related cartoon?  I’ve criticized every episode so far for basically the same reason, they have all sucked.  The story line that is… the animation is definitely nice, but who really cares when the story is the worst?  I was really optimistic at first.

Can they turn this slow train wreck around?  Am I alone with this feeling?

A weak second episode…

PWS-Half-Cocked-Cartoon-LogoAfter the first episode, and the shot show episode I was optimistic but longed for the episodes the be longer.   Weeeeeeeeelllll, this one was longer.  It was basically useless from a gun content and story standpoint though.  I hope this picks up fast because not even the awesome Archer style animation and crude jokes can save it.

Thoughts?

SHOT SHOW 2014:

PWS-Half-Cocked-Cartoon-LogoBetter than the first episode, I’ll say that much.  I guess I expected the episodes to be longer and more substantive than they have been so far.

Thoughts?

The name of this premiere episode is “The Misled Ad”:

PWS-Half-Cocked-Cartoon-LogoThey definitely delivered on the animation side of things.  Storyline and dialog though was lacking, but I’ll cut them some slack because it’s the first episode.

Thoughts?  Did you enjoy it?
