Apple destruction:

Barrett-M82Like Omar said, “If you come at the king, you best not miss“.  I don’t think Omar was referring to shooting Apple devices with a .50, but you never know with The Wire… there was so many levels to all the dialog on that show. *whistles Farmer In The Dell*

I’m actually surprised the trajectory didn’t deviate more heavily.

Richard Ryan slays an iPod Touch:

Interesting choice using a Webley Revolver and MP40.  The slow motion footage is Top Douchebag style sick!

Pretty cool that the slower rounds really tore that thing up.

Thoughts?  Getting sick of this “shoot an apple product” trend yet?  It seems to be working for Richie Rich so I doubt it will stop.

Shortly before Christmas I was contacted by Munitio to see if I was interested in doing a review on their [M] BLK Tactical 9mm earphones. Obviously I jumped at the chance to not only get something cool looking for free, but also to see how they compared to the Apple earphones included with my iPod nano that I have been using for the past few years.

Munitio was kind enough to 2nd day air the earphones to me so I would be able to have them before I left to go home for Christmas.  My nano was charged up with and waiting…

Unboxing:

The earphones came beautifully presented in a cylindrical matte black cardboard box.  A tug on the pull tab revealed a user manual, silk cleaning cloth, leather carrying case, and three sizes of extra silicone ear buds. The earphones themselves have a good weight to them, and appear to be the exact dimensions ( as expected ) of a slightly shortened pulled 9mm cartridge.  Nice…

Looks pretty good!

It would be probably good to have the program pop up some optional warnings about how at certain parts of the disassembly process (in most of the guns) you need to be careful that a loaded spring doesn’t fly out and hit you in the eye.

I noticed during the Glock disassembly the guide rod spring can be removed.  While there are non-captive guide rod/spring combos you can buy aftermarket… the factory Glock guide rod has a captive spring. There are probably some other minor errors, but chances are it’s mostly kids that are going to be buying the app to show their friends… so I guess it doesn’t really matter THAT much.

It can be bought on iTunes (HERE).  Be careful though on how much you want to spend because although the app is listed at 99 cents according to one reviewer that only includes 2 of the guns. Each additional gun is another 99 cents each.

I haven’t tried any of these apps, but $18.99 for the Shot Timer Pro is a ridiculous price for an iPhone app, and judging buy the website it has little to no advantages over the free ones.

The SureFire shot timer definitely looks like the best option to try out first, before spending any money.

The iPad is of course on the right :P

Forgive the low quality.. it was the best I could come up with given the quality of the picture.

You can find the Knights Armament ballistic software – HERE
