shooting

My man PULLED UP with the extendo:

Niiiiiiiice.  Holy, this thing is a kickstarter that raised $903,000 so far.  It’s called a LAOWA 24mm probe lens, and there is 8 days left on it if you want in.  The bottom tier of the kickstarter gets you the lens for $1400 USD.

Obviously despite how it looks in the video, nothing is being “fired” through the objects… it’s just that skinny little lens being moved. Cool idea.  Here’s a little behind the scenes look at them doing it on a pizza:

Thoughts?  Yea I’m disappointed that it doesn’t shoot lenses too guys.

When the fellas brought the guns out:

If you need me, the fellas and I are TRAINING LIKE WE FIGHT. Gat tip: @Ramonx24

You already know they start training like they fight.  😬😬😬

Just when I think “I’ve seen the stupidest thing the gun-related internet has to offer”, I’m dumbfounded by something even worse.

Damn, this is creepy:

“Family fire”… I see what you did there.  Holy they did a nice job on their fancy website, I’ll say that.

The website advocates safe storage and education, however they also advocate storing your ammo and gun separately.  They also have a lot of “facts” in their campaign tool kit which I’m not 100% sure are accurate and not meant to mislead. I find it hard to believe that guns are the #2 cause of death among children. Why don’t these places cite the actual source? Also, why are they lumping injured in with killed? Seems like an effort to inflate the issue. If you pulled a stat of all kids that were “injured or killed” by vehicles, swimming pools, knives etc… the number would be incredibly massive due to the “injury” part of it.

I don’t know the back story of this organization (anti-gun? sort of pro-gun? I lose track of all these “safety” efforts), but part of their message seems to be OK. It’s like that will all these places though. They basically advocate for some of the same things us pro-gun people stand for, but then the end result is “ya basically you should have your ammo in one safe, and your gun in the other, and let your family doctor set the code and only let you get the codes on request once your deemed in a good mental state and absolutely in need of the gun for a valid self defense or recreational reason.” Cool story bro. Make sure you tell the guy breaking into your home RIGHT NOW that.

Holy this looks scary.  I embedded the below video at the time when the gameplay starts (after the talking):

Daaaaaaamn.  Video games are so crazy now.  I can’t even imagine playing one of these in VR someday.

2019 release date apparently.

Train like you fight:

Another:

Would train like that in video #1 with the fellas?  The weekend is coming up.

In his defense, in the second video he’s doing some pretty controlled PULL UP AND SHOOT type stuff out of a car, then some more shooting from under a range canopy.  I’m not mad at the second video.  I’m not mad at the first one either, but the forward roll / muzzle sweeping EVERYONE was a bit much.  Don’t do that crap around me, and we’re cool.  I’m just happy to see people out exercising their right.  Plenty of people start off doing nonsense that’s unsafe (video games and movies are the cause of that maybe? I don’t know), but do that once or twice at a public range and someone will tear them a new one so bad they will likely reflect on it and never do it again.  I’ve seen it happen, and I’ve seen the reformed (safe) shooters return to shoot another day. 

I re-posted the first video on Instagram last week, and let me tell you the comments don’t disappoint. Well the racist ones disappoint me, but this is the internet so predictably it happens.

Matt Best had to do it to em:

haha hilarious, and so true.  The instagram “TrainiNg InStruCtOrS” are in an intense race to the bottom.  I specify Instagram because it’s the place that most of them are choosing to showcase their bullshit in realtime nowadays.  I’m just waiting for one of them to strap on a gun and jump an actual shark like The Fonz while engaging targets.  They are already metaphorically doing that on a daily basis, so one of them might as well just be self-aware / funny and do it for real.  That’s a free idea for the ones that read the blog.

Thoughts?
