When Guns Are Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Cut You In Half With Their Car

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.(WVLT)– A human torso was found inside a car during a traffic stop in Knoxville, according to police.

Where is there to go from here?

The upstanding member of the community pictured above. He looks like the kind of subhuman that would run over a man, cutting him in half then driving around with his torso in the passenger seat.

Officers said they made the discovery Sunday after stopping a car they said was swerving between lanes on Interstate 40.

According to investigators, Dorrae Johnson, 29, was heading west near mile marker 388 when he was stopped. Investigators said Johnson yelled out the window that he had to get to his family’s home and then drove away from the traffic stop.

Johnson is accused of then taking the Sutherland Avenue exit, hitting a curb, and blowing out a tire while driving the wrong direction. Investigators said Johnson then hit a utility pole, jumped out of the car, and ran away.

An officer arrested Johnson and turned off Johnson’s car. That’s when the officer said he discovered a human torso in the passenger floorboard. The torso was reportedly missing its lower half, which was later found with its wallet at what police called “the scene of impact.”

Police identified the victim as Daryl Butler, according to the report. Police said Butler was a pedestrian who was hit and killed by Johnson.

The officer who arrested Johnson said Johnson appeared intoxicated. A report stated Johnson said “he knew he was “blitzed.” That’s some mighty fine police work Lou.

When police asked who was in the car with him, Johnson said he and the passenger had switched seats, according to a report Jesus. That is probably the best line I have ever heard from these kind of stories. No wonder the car wrecked, original driver had no legs


I know some of the hands on gun review and project stuff has slowed down recently, But is is coming. Nearly 3 weeks of rain and thunderstorms then some other things have slowed down several projects that are ongoing for the site. Just wanted to update you on that. Today is another severe thunderstorm/lightening day. So I’m going to do another scattered shots random things that caught my eye recently.

This first picture is a very cool gun owner by friend of the website and all around cool guy Stuart Palmer. You may recognize it from a little known obscure film called “Blade Runner”.

“he say you brade runna”

This is a gun that is from another media franchise from the 80s. Not seen these days and not very accurate. A friend owns one of these he bought in the early 80s and I been trying to get him to loan it to me for a few years now. If I get my hands on it I will absolutely give a full review of it and play act my favorite episodes of The A-Team by shooting at a man sized target 5 foot away and still missing.

This is the coolest thing I have seen this month. or at least the thing I saw that I lusted for the most. The all brass cleaning rod and tool set for issue out to GIs issued the M1911 pistol.

if you ever run across even a single 1911 cleaning rod that is brass like this on ebay be sure to contact me and let me know.

above is the more common version.

I ran across this picture on facebook shared by a veteran of MACVSOG. These two guys really were innovators.

Above is a very nice “clone” of a Colt 601. The parts are almost all original save for the lower and the full auto control parts that would get the owner in trouble. The owner even managed to track down one of the original bayonets.

Below is a very nice collection of all the major retro variants with bayonets.

The below picture is of an experimental storage drum for M1911s that was proposed to be used to store pistols after WW2. It held about two dozen pistols plus two mags each. The top is glass but only for display purposes. I’d like to own that drum full of surplus M1911s.

Last is a funny little meme I found some where. It’s funny precisely because it is true.

I have to say that the ammo is usually fine to use as long as your gun isn’t an El Jefe special

I am. . .

In Officer Candidate School Quantico, in one of the many long and boring classes, there was a little event to wake the students up. At a set point in one of these classes a group of Marines would run in wearing their 782 gear and firing blanks. They would run up on stage and one by one recite (loudly and enthusiastically) the following. The section below is typed as the handout was typed.


I am the squad leader, I carry out the orders of my Platoon Commander. I carry the M16A2 service rifle and M7 Bayonet. I am responsible for discipline, training, and welfare of my squad. In the event of combat I am responsible for the tactical employment of these motivated trained killers.


I am the fireteam leader, I carry out the orders of my motivated squad leader. I carry the M16A2 service rifle with M203 Grenade Launcher attached. I am responsible for the tactical employment of my fireteam, as well as my M203, and when you hear the “THUMP” of my 203 you will know death is in the house and HELL! is in session.


I am the automatic rifleman, I carry the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, and K-Bar Killing Knife. I carry out the orders of my motivated fireteam leader. I am responsible for the care and effective tactical employment of my weapon, and when I open up, you will know that heavy metal thunder is about to rain down hot lead and fear on the enemy.


I am the assistant automatic rifleman. I carry the M16A2 service rifle and M7 bayonet. I also carry the spare barrel and ammunition for the Squad Automatic weapon. I am responsible to ensure that the Automatic Rifleman continues to put deadly rounds on the enemy. In the unlikely event that the SAW Gunner goes down I will continue to cause hate and discontent in the hearts of our enemies!!


I am the rifleman, I am also trained as the Squad Scout. I carry the M16A2 service rifle and M7 bayonet. I carry out the orders of my Fireteam Leader, I am the master of detection as the pointman of my Squad. I am responsible to locate and close with the enemy and to ensure death and destruction rain down upon the enemy.

Night Vision PVS-14 Bridge Mounts

Night vision is expensive. Then, there are all sorts of options, but they are sold by competing dealers so it is hard to find fair comparisons about them. It is true force multiplier as every day we experience darkness and the vast majority would not have something like night vision. It is also something that people won’t be throwing together in their garage after a SHTF event. You either have it or you don’t.

Not that long ago a night vision salesman was pushing a product I was really interested in. Then he started making all sorts of impossible claims. Made me decide not to buy from him. It can be hard to sort through the marketing bullshit, especially if you have limited knowledge or experience with night vision.

NITEWALKER posted an excellent comparison video of various Dual PVS-14 bridge mounts. Not a whole lot of people would get the chance to have their variety of sub $1000 bridge mounts on hand. That why I am so grateful to see this sort of information shared. No way would I be buying all that stuff.
