mythbusters

Ooooooooooo yea:

Mythbusters_title_screenAirs this Saturday, January 31st.  Answering the question: Is it really possible for someone to carry all those health packs, guns, and even a chainsaw? Using the DOOM universe and DOOM 3 BFG Edition for reference, Tim helps the team recreate a DOOM level in real life.

Cool, I’d like to see that for the weapons alone. Hope they put it up on YouTube, because that’s all I do.

The guy best known for his work on Mythbusters:

Mythbusters-Gun-SuppressorsWow a lot of cool stuff in there.  Organized chaos in most of it for sure.  He definitely knows what he’s doing!

If you could pick out one thing what would you want?  I’d probably pick the ejection seat from the jet… or the lathe.

Oh MythBusters…

I guess we have different ideas of what constitutes a “loaded” gun.  He decided to do it the Israeli way for some reason.

Thoughts?

Yep, they accidentally shot a cannonball 700 yards into a residential neighborhood:

Yikes… someone should get fired for that one.   Lucky no one died.

Chances are since no one got hurt, and they are famous, my guess is they’ll just laugh it off and it will be business as usual.

Thoughts?

The suppressor stuff starts at 12:55 in the first video:

The suppressors they are using are manufactured by Silencerco.

The Osprey model they make looks killer. I love that unconventional shape.

To match a scene in the movie where the car gets shot, then cut in half by an elevator:

Kind of useless, but the slow motion footage was cool. Slow motion footage is always cool though…

Interesting grip Tory has on the H&K UMP (see pic on left)… is that something people do? I’d hold a beer that way, but not a gun. *shrug*
