mp5

I know I repeatedly ask for innovation in the gun industry.  This isn’t what I meant:

Apparently “so you don’t have to take your eyes off the target when clearing spent or misfired ammunition” is the biggest selling feature.  Fair enough, but unless your AR is jamming up a lot, then taking your eyes briefly off the target after 30 rounds I wouldn’t think would be that much of an issue for presumably who their customer base is… guys who shoot their guns once or twice a month (ABSOLUTE MAX) if their wife or girlfriend hasn’t already made plans for them.  Buying one of these will likely get the coveted “Oh… interesting” from their group of friends though, so there’s that.  If you continue to watch the video you’ll see this sYsTeM uses a modified gas tube and gas key as part of the assembly.  The entire upper is $795 on the Advantage Arms website, or for those want the DIY kit it’s $300 (everything but the barrel and bolt carrier group). I probably should write a sheepdog fan fiction about all of this; it’s going on the list.

6:20 – LOL when he charges it on his belt 😭😂

Ahoy takes a look at the MP5 In real life and in video games:

HK-Guns-Heckler-And-Koch-poster-questionmarc

I’d definitely put the MP5k at the top of the list for HK guns I’d like to own.  Backward cartridge version only though.  Weeeeeeeeel maybe one of those not-suitable-for-civilian MP7s.  What about you guys?

I really enjoy Ahoy’s vids, mostly for the real life historical info.  The video game stuff just reminds me that I’m old, and in awe what the youngsters are playing.

Will Richard get a secret service visit because of this? Maybe the Obama impersonator will?

Richard-Ryan-ENDO-CaliforniaAw they missed a perfect opportunity to shoot a teleprompter machine to bits. Damn that guy’s Obama voice is pretty much dead on though.  I’d troll people on the phone non stop if I could sound like that.  I assumed Alphacat (the guy in the above video playing Obama) was the guy behind the Obama plays Call of Duty hilarious video, but I was wrong.

Carnik Con kicks knowledge in his unique way:

I knew I was in for a wild ride when it opened with “Dugan’s Tool Shed”.  I liked the history of how the suppressor for the MP5 was invented… quite accurate I imagine.

3:30 – LOL swiss cheese target.

5:17 – Make sure to watch up to the very end, there are outtakes!  Outtakes are the best.

Hmmm that MP5 SD selector switch looks familiar… oh right I make a shirt of it over at ENDO Apparel ;)

Just out having a troll stroll exercising rights at the same time:

hahah he suggests to the cop he should park elsewhere as not to impede traffic.  Good start guy..

How do automatic firearms normally look?  In my experience they look identical to semi autos unless you know what to look for.  *blah blah blah erring on the side of caution* because so many criminals open carry mid day minding their own business on a busy street right? *eye roll*  We discussed this before on the blog, but what phone operators at police stations need to start doing is asking a few simple questions like “So this person you saw open carrying… was he acting in a threatening manner?” etc.. and then based on the answers proceed to educate the caller that open carry of a firearm is in fact legal in the state.  It would really save a lot of time for everyone involved, and free the police up to deal with situations that are of actual importance.

I love how he was finished with the police at around 3.5 minutes, yet continued to be a douchebag and argue with them about the semi-automatic / automatic, and the NFA.

I’ll say it time and time again, open carry if you want… it’s your right (in some states) and you should do whatever you want, but don’t be surprised when you get harassed over and over because some “concerned citizen” sees you carrying around a “High powered fully automatic assault rifle with a shoulder thing that goes up”.
