This blog is no stranger to sticking spent casings in your ears.  I observed R. Lee Ermey using some for hearing protection, and also found a tutorial on how to accomplish it.

Makes me wish I would have thought of this idea, to deliver sound to the user, rather than mute everything.  According to Gizmodo, the earphones are made by a company called MUNITIO, and will apparently be sold for $250 each. They better sound damn good for that money.

Unless you are a massive company like apple, sony, google etc.. I never understood why you would want to talk about your products and create buzz before they are even available. Anyone that thinks these headphones are an awesome idea, would probably want to purchase them immediately and not have to keep checking the website for an update on the magical date they will be available.  Maybe the average consumer isn’t like me though.  I will have long forgotten about these within a couple of days.

Very controversial new video put out by the UK rapper M.I.A.:

[youtube width=”560″ height=”340″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE9rUHDXRFI[/youtube]

[vimeo width=”560″ height=”315″]http://vimeo.com/11219730[/vimeo]

The 9 minute video features American police involved in some sort of redhead genocide, likely symbolic for something else.

I know what you’re thinking:

OH NOES GINGERCIDE! Where’s Carrot Top when you need him? Get Christina Hendricks and Lindsay Lohan to safety at once!!!

On another note… the flag patches are backwards on all the police uniforms, which is probably intentional.

The song doesn’t really appeal to me, but the video is pretty well done.

NOTE: I embedded both the YouTube and Vimeo versions of the video because the YouTube one is/was banned in lots of countries when it came out a couple days ago.

Sleeping on the job AUG:

Darwin called… Pretty much the stupidest thing you can do. Loaded or not, it is not good practice.

The rifle is a Steyr AUG.

I can’t tell what country those guys are from by the patch and uniform.. anyone know?

Birmingham, AlabamaA  man angry at his girlfriend fired 15 rounds at her Monday night.

Stephen Gafford, 43, missed but some of the bullets hit too close for comfort. Investigators recovered seven .22-caliber projectiles from the lining of the woman’s purse, said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Randy Christian.

The victim, whose name wasn’t released, went to the sheriff’s Forestdale substation to report the assault. She told authorities she and her boyfriend got into an argument about him smoking crack.

He began punching her in the face, and then opened fire with a rifle. Her purse was slung over her shoulder when it was peppered with the seven shots.

She got away and went to the substation.

Gafford is charged with attempted murder and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the county jail on $26,000 bond.

Wow sounds like an outstanding guy. :roll:  No I did not photoshop his picture.

The article says he used a .22 caliber rifle,  so it’s probably safe to assume it was the ubiquitous .22LR rimfire cartridge.  Even so, it must have been a thick purse!  I’ve shot through some fairly strong stuff with .22LR.

That goon deserves everything bad coming his way.  Glad to hear his girlfriend is unscathed; I hope she has enough sense to leave him after this incident.

You’ve heard of the movie How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days?  I present to you:

You’d think that since Russians apparently invented the stupid “game”, they would know how it works.

You can’t put one round in the magazine of an autoloader, and not expect it to fire after you rack the slide and pull the trigger.

After watching the video, this is how I believe it went down:

20 seconds – Guy #1 is carrying the gun (a Makarov PM) in some type of small (pocket?) holster.

23 seconds – Guy #1 removes holster and throws it onto the table.

24 seconds – Guy #1 pretends to load the gun by racking the slide, but only pulls it back slightly, so no bullet chambers.

29 seconds – You can tell that Guy #1 does not pull the trigger.  The sound you hear is likely him clicking the slide mounted safety off.

32 seconds – Guy #1 racks the slide and puts a round into the chamber.

35 seconds – Guy #2 pulls trigger and discharges round into his head, as 2 of the onlookers realize he does not know the “click the safety for the sound” trick  :roll:

I would never in a million years consider doing anything so stupid with a gun. “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes” as they say.

As usual, Jeff Cooper‘s rules apply here.. most relevant are #1 and #2:

  1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
  4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.
