Troll-FaceSome see a contest, I see a good opportunity to troll.  I wish I had a 10/22, extra picatinny rails, a ton of accessories, and a lot of time on my hands… my entry would be majestic.  I have confidence others will step up to the plate though with honorable troll submissions.

Thoughts?

Professional operators in action.  Do not attempt to re-create what you’re about to see if you’re an amateur:

Most disarms make me roll my eyes, but If you really Jackie Chan’d the Chris Tucker that was doing that to you, I could actually see it working!  Definitely more feasible than the AK-74 double drop kick mag eject / unload I posted yesterday.

0:40 – The upside down firing to “shoot a lot of enemies if you need to” after the disarm definitely made my eyes roll just a bit.  Soooooooo operator it hurts.

0:50 – Meh might work I guess *shrug*… I’d like to see all of these done with a paintball marker or airsoft though and see what’s up.

A lot of guys at INGO have been huge ENDO Supporters.  Check these toys out:

Nicely done video.  Looks like a good time!

I don’t even know what I would pick if given the choice.  Not a short barreled shotgun, that’s for sure.  Been there done that… they look cool but are about as much fun as someone smashing you in the wrist with a 2×4.

INGO-Indiana-Gun-OwnersIf you’re looking for another forum to kill time on with some great guys (Possibly girl or two? Unconfirmed haha) head over to Indiana Gun Owners (INGO).

I’m watching it as I write this post:

TrackingPoint-LogoNot even 2 minutes into the documentary the animals started dropping like flies.  At that point I knew I should pause it and check the YouTube comments…. a LOT of hate going on.

Thoughts on this accurate long range no skill required killing machine? Thoughts on the documentary?

If you’re an operator you’re going to need these ballistic shields for your rifle when you operate in operations:

Ruger-1022-Ballistic-Rifle-Shield

AR15-Ballistic-Rifle-Shield

AK47-Ballistic-Rifle-Shield

Shotgun-Ballistic-Shield

Available from X Armament… get them before they sell out! LOL

With the Level III protection flanking your precious face, you’ll pretty much be invincible to incoming fire.  If my calculations are correct (carry the one…. double check… yea they are correct) you’ll basically be able to leisurely stroll into a battlefield and pick off tangos with ease, all without getting a scratch on you.

Nothing says operator like having armor plates on your Ruger 10/22 (1st picture above).  Battles have been fought and won worldwide with that rifle, and will continue to be decades into the future.

I actually posted a Homemade Shielded Weapons System a while back which someone made for fun.  I didn’t think a company would actually start making and selling something similar.

Thoughts? Would operate with?

Remember Leonard Embody?  Well he’s trying to teach the police lessons again:

On 7-29-13 I decided to pass out leaflets in downtown Nashville. I openly carried a molded kydex rifle case on my back with a ballistic vest. I purchased the ballistic vest because Tennessee cops have repeatedly pointed guns at me. It would be foolish not to wear a ballistic vest. I was detained once for about 20 minutes and let go. I then proceeded to do an interview with news channel 5. I then continued to pass out leaflets and was walking back to my vehicle when I was stopped by a crazy cop. He detained me, while his henchmen removed my sealed locked rifle case and pried it open without permission. They saw a suppressor attached to an AR15 rifle inside the case. I was arrested for the silencer even though form 3 paperwork was inside the case. I am an FFL NFA dealer and pay the SOT. The cops said that since the case appeared to maybe have a rifle in it they were justified in opening it. I was arrested and bonded out at about 5am on 7-30-13.

I have broke no law and believe the DA has not dropped the charges for fear of a federal lawsuit.

He’s got balls, I’ll give him that.  I’m on his side as far as “the law is the law” goes, and I hate guilty until proven innocent type things like this involving the police.  I really don’t know what he expects to get out of these little demonstrations?  Has any police officer ever got fired yet after any interaction with him? Doubtful.  Have the laws changed for the better because of gun related trolls like him?  Definitely not.  Does he have the power to change laws with demonstrations like this?  Again, that’s doubtful.  In the end it seems like the focus of these demonstrations is really to get shot (and obviously live), or troll hard enough to corner an officer into doing or saying something he shouldn’t, sue and then cash in. That’s what may have happened here.

LOL this is the rifle “case” he made from scratch using a vacuum forming machine it looks like he may have built for the purpose:

Troll-FaceThat’s next level open carry trolling when you go out of your way to even make your case form fit your rifle.

This all seems like a real waste of everyone’s time, including Leonard’s own.

I rolled my eyes when I saw this article on the incident called him an activist. haha
