Cool:

Whoa that folding auto at the start!  I didn’t even know that existed so I googled it and saw it’s a PP-90.

Is Royal Nonesuch Russian?  This guy in the video also seems to survive off safety squints / no ear pro. haha

Speaking of the PP-90, I still think about this Magpul FMG9 prototype on a daily basis. I really wish they could get Glock on board and actually create that thing as a legendary collab. The internet would explode and it would require wartime-like effort to keep up with demand, where random manufacturing companies from all types of industries would be creating them:

Thoughts?

What happens in Russia:

haha nice.  Here’s a vid to go along with the story… trigger discipline doesn’t look good at the start.  Muzzle direction too eeeeeeeeeh, that’s a guy sitting down:

freddie-gibbs-AK-russiaAlthough I’m not the biggest fan of his, he makes hood music… nothing for the clubs, nothing for the women.

haha even that Russian hat too. At least he’s pro gun :P A lot of his raps are actually about guns, even the song titles are gun related. Obviously not a guy the NRA is going to want to put on the payroll anytime soon, but you get the idea.

Russia getting slow-motion with it:

Wow that’s impressive.  I can’t even fathom how loud that must be… I bet when most of those go off it’s like a midget drop kicking your chest.

LOL those 152mm shells and projectiles make .50 BMG look like a toy for babies.

Here are the wikipedia pages for the items in use:

0:20 – 2B14 Podnos
0:30 – 2S3 Akatsiya
1:45 – 152mm gun 2A36

Larry Vickers AKA Mr-important-and-famous-frowny-pants visits a special forces training competition in Russia:

haha 2:33 the Russian guy turns into the LAV with the pointing, and tells Larry to “Listen”.

LOL 2:52 – “If the operator shoots a bystander target as a punishment he must write 12 letters to his imaginary relatives” and run 3 kilometers for each hole.

This video was kind of cool.. high production value, and some Russian operators doing a few neat things.  All in all I’m liking LAVs new vids.

In the USA kids with guns is taboo… in Russia it’s encouraged:

Russia-Youth-Military-Training-Camp-1

Russia-Youth-Military-Training-Camp-2

Children as young a five are sent on forced marches, given battlefield training, taught hand to hand combat, and how to use military equipment. 12 year olds are also taught how to fire Kalashnikov assault rifles and other small arms.  During the clubs regular camps, some children are given the opportunity to parachute jump during their paratrooper training.  The club appears to urge Russian parents not to wait until their child becomes a compulsive gambler, drug addict or alcoholic, before sending them to the club.

Russia-Youth-Military-Training-Camp-3They’ll probably all grow up to be bloodthirsty murders though right?  Oh wait they won’t.  It’s good to see girls involved.  I find it interesting the part about urging Russian parents to send their kids to this camp before they grow up to be compulsive gamblers, drug addicts, or alcoholics.  Are those issues that huge in Russia, more so than in the US?

In a few of the pictures it looks like the AK’s are actually cast replicas, I could be wrong though.

What type of handgun is in picture #1 if you follow the link?  Some type of training one?

A 12 year old kid in Moscow Russia shot a family friend negligently at a shooting range:

At some point, the child apparently jokingly took aim at the people in front of him, and pulled the trigger, fatally hitting the family friend in the head and killing him instantly.  While police acknowledge the boy is also at fault for playing around with the loaded weapon, charges are expected to be laid against the instructor for not ensuring the rifle was empty at the time.

Full Story – LiveLeak

shooting-targetNOT cool.  Poor kid, I don’t blame him at all… this is 100% the stupidity of the parental supervision that caused this to happen.  Wtf… “police acknowledge the boy is at fault for playing around with the loaded weapon”?  So police think a 12 year old, or anyone at any age should automatically know that a gun is loaded, and know proper range etiquette?  That’s pretty weak they put any blame at all on the kid, unless it could be proven he had tons of experience with firearms and knew that particular one like the back of his hand.

Thoughts?
