Wet noodle AR-15 barrels FTW:

Last time I checked it’s almost 2013, so unless you’re building some retro throwback tribute to an AR-15 of yore, you need to do like Rob Pincus says and free float the shit out of your barrel.

Do you not want to be the best operator you can be?  Good luck getting range hunnies with sub-MOA groups.

I whipped this up as a joke to go with the post title, but I actually kind of like it:

Despite the success of the PMAG, Army officials from the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command issued a “safety of use message” in April that placed it, and all other polymer magazines, on an unauthorized list.

Full Story – HERE

I assume that is going to make a lot of people angry.  I really don’t see the downside to Pmags.  They are light, the polymer has a natural lubricity, they are durable, cheap to make etc… etc…  I’m all for giving the soldiers what THEY want.  They are the ones that have to use the equipment, and bet their lives on it.

Did Magpul piss some high level Army officials off?  Did a USGI mag manufacturer make the Army an offer they couldn’t refuse?  My guess is we will never know the exact answer.

Thoughts?

Represent the ubiquitous AR-15 rifle in style this fall/winter: 

The shirts turned out to be popular, so I figure branching the ENDO Apparel lineup out into various other types of clothing and accessories is the next logical step.

The jackets are made in USA 24 oz. melton wool, with genuine leather arms, knit collar/cuffs/bottom hem, and quilted lining.  Decorated with made in USA chenille patches with double felt backing and embroidered detail.  For those of you unfamiliar with varsity letterman jackets, they are normally sold by schools to students, so they can show off their accolades, sports affiliations, club memberships, and interests.

Make sure to check out the product page on ENDO Apparel for more pictures and detail.

What do you guys think?

I am very aware that the $425 price tag is not going to be for everyone.  I wish there was a way to show each and every one of you one of the jackets in person, because they really are very impressive.   If you look around at various varsity letterman jackets you’ll see a wide price range, with jackets typically starting at around a few hundred dollars all the way up to several thousand for a custom brand name jacket.  I assure you that these ENDO apparel custom jackets fall into that upper tier.

Getting the jackets made was the easy part.  Scouring the globe for the most handsome model to represent ENDO apparel, gathering all the obscure things he requested in his contract, putting up with his idiosyncrasies, and paying his exorbitant fee was the difficult part.  I kid, I kid… that’s me in the side picture.

Note:  If I made fun of you or your company in a post, and you never knew what I looked like from my few YouTube vids.  I’d prefer that picture not be blown up and used as a target, or as reference to call me an asshole if you see me SHOT or elsewhere. :P

I’m currently accepting orders, and will ship worldwide.  Shipping in the USA & Canada is free, but anywhere else $20 extra.

If you’re looking for a size that I don’t have, or want a particular customization, make sure to email me and i’ll try to accommodate you!

Make sure to subscribe to the ENDO Apparel mailing list for updates.  You can also stalk me on twitter @ENDOapparel , and like the ENDO Apparel Facebook page.

I really appreciate all your continued support.

Jessica Biel on the training she recieved for the new A-Team movie:

I had this really sexy 9-millimeter Beretta, and I trained a lot with an M4 machine gun. Before, I felt very scared of guns. But you learn about them and then you feel capable, and it becomes an empowering experience.”

Full article at Glamour – HERE

Glad to hear actors and actresses speaking up about their love for guns.  Another one I recently talked about was Ashton Kutcher.

I wonder if Justin Timberlake (Biel’s boyfriend) likes guns as well?

On 1 April, TACOM Life Cycle Management Command issued the Maintenance Information Message MI 10-040 “Camouflaging Specific Small Arms” stating that, given command approval, Soldiers are permitted to camouflage the M4/M16 weapon systems with paint.

See the guide in PDF format – HERE

As the guide says at the end, weapons painting has been elevated to a fine art. I don’t know where the awesome examples I saved on my harddrive went, but some of the paint jobs I have seen are breathtaking.  The example the have in the PDF is pretty weak looking as far as artistry goes, although it still would likely look better than black in the right environment.

I’d like to see the military started paying soldiers that are also artists extra money to paint rifles. The talented guys shouldn’t have to work for free just because their whole unit would rather not walk around with the plain old black color scheme.

That smirk is because of her 172 confirmed kills:

She even has excellent trigger discipline.

It appears she got issued a left handed M4, which strikes me as odd :P  Does the military issue both right and left handed guns, or are lefties told to suck it up and learn to shoot right?
