A little photoshop I whipped up for the Croatian bullpup rifle:

As the wikipedia page says, it definitely does look similar to the FAMAS.

Thoughts?  Anyone ever shot this thing?

Introducing two new shirts in the ENDO Apparel lineup:

You can read the descriptions, and/or make a purchase over at the ENDO Apparel website.

The Army green one is screen printed on the same type and of American Apparel 50/50 poly/cotton shirt as the last one.  For the heather grey repeating 5.56x45mm shirt, I went with a more expensive American Apparel tri-blend (same fit, same price for you) which I think you guys will really like.

I’m currently accepting orders, and will ship worldwide.  Shipping in the USA & Canada is free, but anywhere else $7 extra.

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.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

I know a lot of you guys prefer to order through Amazon.  I’m getting low on stock there for a lot of the shirts.  I’ll fix this by mid next week, and also have these new ones up there too.

You can still pay for these new ones through Amazon (HERE and HERE) if you prefer.  The orders will be fulfilled by me though until I send the new stock there.

U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan could someday be awarded medals for restraint that prevents civilian casualties in combat.

Full Story – HERE

Congratulations, you get a medal for not killing innocent people! Seems like unless your unit caused a total massacre, it would be pretty hard not to give this medal to everyone.  If it will improve morale though, I’m all for it!

My girlfriend and I always joke that I have “Incredible restraint for a human being”, because when something really pisses me off I take a breath and move on rather than over reacting.  To be honest I don’t really want a medal… A Starbucks gift card would be nice though. :P

PBS Frontline documentaries are usually very well done.  This looks like no exception.

An Afghan journalist’s extraordinary 10 days living and filming with an insurgent cell allied with Al Qaeda to sabotage a key U.S./NATO supply route:
