I know a lot of you guys hate VICE, but this is pretty good.  I like how real the main VET TV guy (Donny) keeps it:

3:18 – “There are 20,000 users right now that pay $5 per month for access to the content.”  I keep telling people this… it doesn’t matter that YouTube bans certain content… if you have great content you can charge for it, and people will pay.  If you have poor to mediocre content, or even relatively decent content that’s packed full of “SpOnSOrEd” items or messages then people are going to maybe watch it for free but they aren’t going to pay for it.  Rest assured, I’m not going to be putting out quality content anytime soon and charging you piehitters for it.

5:48 – I thought only SEALS wrote books? haha all jokes aside the book sounds awesome.  I don’t know if I’d get a lot of the jokes since I’m not the audience, but I might have to pick up a copy.

21:27 – Holy OK this VICE girl is making this about herself now.  Annoying.  Oh man his response to her is epic “The reality is that we don’t care about the female perspective on this piece” 😂

5 minutes later, the VICE girl is still trying to get one of the VET TV girls to talk shit about Donny and what him and VET TV are doing.  After that she continues to try to put Donny on the spot and trip him up getting him to say something he’ll regret.  The play doesn’t work, and he eloquently answers her.

You can read more on the VET TV website if you’re interested in what they’re offering.

Oh and if you click though to the YouTube comments on the video… “Comments are disabled for this video.”  classic.  I’d put money on that being VICE’s doing, and not at the request of VET TV.

Thoughts?  Are any of you guys subscribed?

Moo-Lon Labe… infidel body armor… ugh my head already hurts LOL:

0:35 – LOL what the… this guy has EMTs on site and notified the Sheriff and none of them said “Dude… no… just no…”

I’m SOOOOOOO over these stunts.  They are stupid and dangerous.  Anyone who says they need to be done because “if we can’t trust vests to stop this, then we can’t trust them in combat” is a dumb, plain and simple.  You don’t drive your car into a wall at 100mph just to prove that the air bags will save your life.  They have actual dummies full of sensors, and can prove it scientifically… safely.  Ugh man.

9mm… then .45 ACP… Did he switch the plate out?  He doesn’t appear to be too concerned about not shooting in the same spot.  This is also dumb for obvious reasons.

3:23 – This comedian. *eye roll*  Again, we don’t know if he switched the plate out.  His wife seems very comfortable shooting at him.  RED FLAG ALERT. haha

Thoughts?  Do you still think these vids are cute, or are you over them as much as I am?

Pulling a gun on a military veteran is never a great idea:

Marionville, Mo – A man entered the store and pointed a gun at Alexander during his shift Sunday night. But the clerk, a 30-year veteran of the military, quickly pushed the gun away and drew his own — placing it at the gunman’s mouth.  The would-be robber held his gun at his side and quickly backed out of the store.

Full story – NY Daily News

HomerFacePalmInteresting that the robber half-ass slowly pulled his gun out and then wimped out when the clerk put his hand out.  I’m assuming the robber must have been high or something, luckily… or maybe just stupid.  High AND stupid is always a winning combination.

AR15.com member / veteran AlexBosco knocks it out of the park with this one:

Mmmmm up close it looks like it’s made out of cake:

About the product:

I have been developing with the Chief Prosthetis at local Veterans Hospital a Stabilizing Brace (SB15) for the ar15 pistol, and a few other pistols that are similar in format, that I think all of us here will appreciate. I haven’t posted anything sooner because I’ve been waiting for the “Patent Pending Approval” from my patent lawyer and the phone call from the ATF giving me the verbal ok. The ATF has finally given me the verbal ok over the phone and I am expecting the Approval letter shortly, which I will post once received. I am a veteran and after 12 years of service and various deployments I have some mobility issues with my shooting hand and arm and the intent of the SB15 is to assist those with limited strength or mobility while shooting from the one-handed pistol precision stance or one handed supported stance.

That’s awesome.  I really hope he doesn’t charge more than $120 for it.  I imagine the market is a lot bigger than he originally might anticipate.  A lot of people with perfectly fine mobility are going to want this thing just to make their AR pistol suck less (those of you that don’t have SBRs know what I mean).  If he tries to charge $150 for instance, people might as well just add another $50 and go the SBR route.  I’ve never worked with foam rubber, but I’m assuming it’s not any more expensive than the usual polymers.  If he keeps to the design pictured, the mold wouldn’t be that complicated either so I don’t anticipate the start-up costs being out of hand.

Alex says the final product will be available in black, tan, and olive drab.

The inner monologue of a veteran:

As you know I’m not a veteran, but I’ve read all the Terminal Lance comics, so I think I know a thing or two about the military.  That was a joke btw.

I could kill an entire day watching “Shit ______ say” videos.

Thoughts?

You can check out the LockNLoad Java website – HERE

With such awesomely named blends as:

  • Smooth Operator
  • Warrior Select
  • Double Barrel Black
  • Double Tap Special Reserve
  • Charlie Don’t Surf
  • Sniper’s Choice Decaf
  • Armory Select

If you drink coffee it would probably be worth a try.   If I worked at an office I’d get it just to get a rise out of the hippies.   “Is the smell of my Smooth Operator black coffee overpowering your patchouli incense Heath? … That’s how I roll bro, I make no apologies”

The company donates $1 out of each order to military charities which is always nice too.   You can even send coffee directly to troops if you want.
