steel

Gun related companies LOVE to hop on any new trend to make a buck:

ūüė¨ūüė¨ūüė¨ what you’re looking at is a steel shooting target which is $60 over at MK Machining.

Are there really people out there, who exist that are like ” *adjusts fedora* Huehehhehe tAkE My MoNey” and add a few of these to the cart?¬† That question, sadly was rhetorical.

I’m guilty of falling into the trap of posting this low hanging cringe fruit though, giving a company most if not all of you probably haven’t heard of some visibility.¬† Oh well, the world keeps turning, and it’s not taking any money out of my pocket.¬† I won’t have learned anything, and will fall back into this exact trap again almost immediately.

Thoughts?

Interesting:

hahahha that starting skit where he talks about his encounter with the cop.  Gold.

None of this is very surprising, but still cool to see there’s barely a dent made by anything except various 5.56mm and the .308. ¬†Holy that .50BMG AP round tho…

Demolition-Ranch-ENDO-Selector-Switch4:34 – LOL what the hell… a skeletonized AR-15 upper? ¬†That’s the most useless / impractical Gucci firearm related thing I’ve ever seen.

6:34 – hahah the energy from the .50 BMG round is always fun to see hit something after smaller caliber rifle rounds where the stand barely moved.

Man, I sure hope Matt makes a lot of money off his YouTube channel, because he sure shoots a lot of expensive rounds.

Oh nm.. just as I wrote that I see he’s plugging a razor company at 9:18. ¬†He has been rocking that beard for a while, but I guess he could still clean up his neck line up the beard on the cheeks I suppose.

Thoughts?

YOLO:

Shooting-Steel-At-Close-RangeWhat do you guys think… ¬†2 yards? ¬†Maybe 3? *SMH* ¬†Assuming that steel target is an IPSC silhouette we’re looking at ~24″ tall, so that makes the 2×4’s used for the stands about 4ft in height. ¬†If you took one and pivoted it in the ground forward I’m guessing it would come at least half way to that blue mat. ¬†Ugh even if it were a stationary target with an extreme downward angle that would be better than this. ¬†Look how it’s flapping around after each shot, like when your mom hangs your¬†jammies on the clothes line in the wind after the wash. ¬†Redic.

Like Ryo (Gat tipper) said, the shooter is real concerned about the danger of the sun’s rays. UV can be a BITCH. Lead and copper at a ~1000 fps? Meh whatevs, dude’s over it.

Thoughts?  Would live once with?

LOL that’s FREEDOM / AMERICA right there. ¬†Suck on that ISIS.

I used the term “Tuned” loosely in the title. ¬†When he shot that “A” I pretentiously was like “Ew, that A is so flat…. would NOT operate with”. ¬†haha jk I didn’t, ¬†I was too in awe of what was going on but I know some people would.

Musical-Steel-TargetsCatch your boy ENDO at the range playing AC/DC THUNDERSTRUCK full speed with dual MP7s.  Reckless.

These steel targets are available at Musical Targets and range in price from $250 – $600 depending on how many notes you want.

lovemywoods over at the Indiana Gun Owners forum conducted some tests, showing how back-splash and fragmentation could be deadly:

The testing rig:


Example results:

Spoiler Alert: Hardened steel (AR500) is the safest.

Check out the full thread over at INgunowners for lots of great pics and info.

As some of you probably know, Mel Gibson is in some hot water since his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva accused him of domestic violence. ¬†Naturally the court ordered that his weapons be confiscated…

Nice variety of guns. ¬†When I first saw the story I figured I was going to be in for some Bejeweled deagles and basterdized 1911s. Wait… the Deagle is Israeli though, Mel wouldn’t be down for that (see what I did there?).

It’s funny when the police confiscate innocuous items like carrying cases and brushes.

The best part though is that everything is Blu Steel… I immediately thought this:

I’m pretty sure I’ve referenced Zoolander a few times on this blog. If you don’t get the references please do yourself a favor and rent/buy/or watch it online for $3… it’s hilarious.
