history

Check it out if you’re a fan of the pistol and video games:

I’ll add a .50 AE to my collection someday just for kicks.  Even if I didn’t shoot it on a regular basis, it would make a great paperweight.

“The game graciously overlooks the weapon’s impracticality for combat use” <– WHAT?!  I’ll pretend he didn’t say that :P

The beautiful use of Helvetica alone makes the video worth watching.

Thoughts? I know more than a few of you have Deagles.

A look inside:

Mexico Drug War WeaponsMaking gold 1911 grips, bejeweling  and engraving, definitely employed a few people full time in the cartels haha.  I still would like one someday just because.

I wonder if they have a section on ATF Project Gun Runner? My guess is the Army there isn’t a big fan of that operation.

You can google if you want to read more on the private museum.  I found another video of it on youtube which shows and explains a bit more.

This is worth watching:

When I saw the video was almost 14 min long I never thought I would be able to make it… it’s actually really interesting though.

A lot of good history regarding movies and dual wielding too.

I really felt old after seeing the release date on some of those games I used to play haha.

<— Pictured is “Tactical Snookie” with two Deagle brand Deagles.

You have got to be kidding me:

Top-Douchebag-All-Stars

With only 4 complete seasons under History Channel’s Top Douchebag belt, you’d think that they would wait a while yet.  I guess not.  To me that seems like a good indicator that they are planning on cutting the show from the line-up soon.

OMG I wonder who will be back?  Will douchebag what’s his name be there?  What about that team Glock beauty contest acquisition?  Oh right I don’t care… haha

The List:

  1. Hand Cannon (13th Century)
  2. Gatling Gun (1862)
  3. Colt Peacemaker (1873)
  4. Maxim Gun (1883)
  5. Colt M1911 (1911)
  6. M2 Browning (1933)
  7. M1 Garand (1936)
  8. Uzi (1948)
  9. AK-47 (1949)
  10. Glock 17 (1982) – “A simplified handgun made mainly from plastic, except for the barrel”  “It will not fire unless the trigger is pulled and all safeties are off”  <– can be summed up simply as “DERP” *facepalm*
  11. XM-25 (2010)

You can check out the full article to read their blurbs on each gun over at Popular Mechanics.

I almost had a heart attack that our very own M-16 or M4 didn’t make the list.  Besides that, as far as I’m concerned, most of those have merit except for the XM-25.  Last time I checked that wasn’t even widely in use so I’d hardly call that an important gun in “history”… if you’re going to put that on the list you might as well add the AA-12 shotgun.  Fail for not having the Deagle brand Deagle, Glock 7, and the Hi-Point C-9 on the list.  hahaha Yea I trolled the shit out of you with the post pic. *hi-5s self*

If Popular Mechanics was smart they would have convinced Elisha Cuthbert to sign a life contract when she was just the Popular Mechanics for kids girl.  What’s not to like about her?  I hear she was on 24, but I never got into that.  I get my fix now by watching her on Happy Endings… the show is seriously funny.  PMK 4 LIFE tatted on my forearm.

Thoughts?  If you don’t think Elisha Cuthbert is good looking I really should revoke your ability to read this blog.
