rimfire

haha like one of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite philosophers states “Get yourself a Glock rimfire revolver. Lose that nickel plated sissy pistol” -Justin Bieber

In all seriousness, if Glock made a .22 LR semi auto, or hell even a revolver I’d be all over it.  A reliable rimfire pistol In the same frame as the G19?  I literally COULDN’T EVEN, and I’m pretty sure the rest of the world would be with me on that.

Thoughts?

I wish it wasn’t “crowdfunded” but nevertheless it’s cool:

video-game-target-featuresSure it makes thing A LOT more complicated… but it also increases fun by the looks of it.  So dynamic brAh. “Smart targets”, “Smart guns”, “Smart watches”… gotta shoehorn electronics into ALL THE SIMPLE THINGS in today’s day and age to keep the cool teens satisfied. :P

You can check out the indiegogo campaign for the details.  You’ll likely shit a brick when you see how expensive this system is… entry level is $600 for two rimfire targets + $150 for a required base station.

22Plinkster made a video on the product also, which you can check out.  Did he get paid millions of dollars to make it?  Maybe… as we know the dude retired from his day job.

Thoughts?

CCI breaks it down for us:

They manufacture 4 Million rounds of rimfire in a day?!   Wow… that’s a lot of shooting.

CCI does make some beautiful looking .22 LR ammo, compared to the Winchester and Federal bulkpack stuff.  Interesting how much human interaction is still involved in the process.  The video looks oldschool though, so I wonder how many of those people have been replaced with machines since then.

<— They really need to put an ammo dispensing machine in their lobby where customers can sample after a tour. :P

Thoughts?

Birmingham, AlabamaA  man angry at his girlfriend fired 15 rounds at her Monday night.

Stephen Gafford, 43, missed but some of the bullets hit too close for comfort. Investigators recovered seven .22-caliber projectiles from the lining of the woman’s purse, said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Randy Christian.

The victim, whose name wasn’t released, went to the sheriff’s Forestdale substation to report the assault. She told authorities she and her boyfriend got into an argument about him smoking crack.

He began punching her in the face, and then opened fire with a rifle. Her purse was slung over her shoulder when it was peppered with the seven shots.

She got away and went to the substation.

Gafford is charged with attempted murder and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the county jail on $26,000 bond.

Wow sounds like an outstanding guy. :roll:  No I did not photoshop his picture.

The article says he used a .22 caliber rifle,  so it’s probably safe to assume it was the ubiquitous .22LR rimfire cartridge.  Even so, it must have been a thick purse!  I’ve shot through some fairly strong stuff with .22LR.

That goon deserves everything bad coming his way.  Glad to hear his girlfriend is unscathed; I hope she has enough sense to leave him after this incident.

In the AR-15 toilet plunger post on November 17th one Rick informed me in the comments that the picture originated on Gunbroker, where the disgruntled store owner of “Cedar Valley Outfitters” wanted to get rid of these guns at any price because he considered them crap.

These are the four seperate auctions with a copy of the picture and description in each… pretty funny stuff:

Colt Umarex Ar-15 ar 15 .22lr M4 toilet plunger

AR15ToiletPlunger

HEEEEYYYYY…it only took two days after my first listing to have more customers return some of these fine plungers. This is a Colt licensed product, made by Walther, imported by Umarex. We are representing this as a plunger…nothing else. We are not advertising it as a firing, cycling, extracting or feeding rifle. This is to be added to the THOUSANDS of dollars I lost with these POS rifles. Buyer beware! Buyer stay away!Buyer go to the range with a sling shot instead!! Buyer go to Vegas…there is better odds there. No extra credit card charges. No shipping charges to lower 47 states. No California sales. Not allowed anywhere where plungers are not legal. Do not attempt to attach to your face like Ace Ventura…….good luck and BUYER BEWARE. This serial numbered Colt product will ship with box, manual, one magazine and a plunger head to attempt to make this useful for something. (Winning Bid – $380)

Colt Umarex M4 Carbine 22 L.R. 22LR Paperweight

AR15PaperWeight

This is a Colt marked, licensed product. I am representing this as a paperweight only. This a non reliable functioning legal firearm. We are selling under the pretense that you clearly understand these are trash. We have several versions for sale. This is a flat top, removable Carry handle version of the Colt paperweight, featuring two useless 30 round magazines to not feed any ammo reliably into this collapsable stocked PAPERWEIGHT. No shipping charges to lower 47 states. No sales to California. No extra fees for credit card. As you can tell we have no love for these .22lr rifles. It’s a shame Colt even lets their name be put on these. Good Luck. Have fun and buy better paperweights!!!!!! (Winning Bid – $355)

Colt Umarex M4 Carbine 22 L.R. 22LR Poop Scooper

AR15PooperScooper

This a pretty darn good poop scooper. Or it would be a great down rigger for holding a Bluegill under in a good current while flathead fishing. It functions a little better than a “Rubber Ducky” as a training tool but barely. It has a laser, a forward grip, quad rail, two mags, a Colt logo on the side…but don’t hold your breathe…it doesn’t work like a Colt…they just get paid for the name. Is unreliable. Unworthy. And priced a 1 penny….free shipping to lower 47 states. No credit card charges. No hope. No love. Good Luck. Clearly stating…NO returns, buyer beware, buyer get a real gun instead, buyer go fishing. Check out our other fine selection of Umarex guns returned to by people who were dumb enough to think they could spend their hard earned money on a Colt gun and have it work. Silly hard working Americans. We gladly refunded their money so we could lose hundreds and hundreds dollars. Thanks Colt. (Winning Big – $421)

Colt Umarex M4 .22lr AR-15 ar15 Drain Marker Only

AR15DrainMarker

Hey Folks!!! I’m sorry we went almost 24 hours with out posting another one of these on Gunbroker. This is a drain marker, fence post, cat scratcher, or poorly designed pogo stick. It is not however, a firing, extracting, feeding or functioning fire arm. It will ship with two things that resemble magazines…..but we thought magazines fed ammo into rifles…silly us. It has a box, manual, two mags, quad rail, covers and detachable rear sight. The silly customer we sold this COLT to even put on a Hogue grip on it to help insert the fencepost in the ground. Shipping is free….why not? We already lost 2500 dollars selling these…..and then giving everyone their money back. We are telling you clearly…no refunds, no returns…this is a piece of cowdung. No credit card fees. Good Luck and buy another gun instead. Any dealer who says these work I would question their ethics!!!!!!! (Winning Bid – $401)

As you can tell this guy is NOT a fan of the Umarex Colt 22LR!  Elsewhere on gunbroker they seem to be going for around $550, so the people that won his auctions got a pretty good deal ( or are completely stupid for buying such junk if you ask him :P )If these guns are really as bad as he says they are, I wonder why Colt would want to have their name associated with them?

Thanks again for the story Rick.
