Ton go with the post from yesterday about the 10x Unertl optic used by the USMC for the M40, M40A3 and the M82 Barrett. The image above shows the 10X with the 7.62MM NATO turret on the optic and the one calibrated for 50BMG sitting on top.
I would love to see this thing operate and how well it worked.
It’s good to see the FBI risking their health to be out making sure we are safe.
“A Brooklyn man claiming to be infected with the coronavirus coughed on FBI agents who were investigating him for hoarding medical supplies, the US Attorney’s Office said Monday.
Baruch Feldheim, 43, is facing charges of assault and making false statements to the feds( that old multipurpose chestnut) on Sunday outside his Borough Park home where he allegedly peddled and stored massive amounts of N95 respirator masks, federal officials said. “
15 The scene where 80,000 N95 face masks were confiscated during an FBI raid at a warehouse in New Jersey.
“When the agents were within four to five feet of him, Feldheim allegedly coughed in their direction without covering his mouth,” the US attorney’s release said. “At that point, Feldheim told the FBI agents that that he had the Coronavirus,” the statement said.
I’m surprised they didn’t shoot him .
Feldheim then allegedly lied to FBI agents regarding his possession and sale of medical supplies. Yet certain somebodies who lied to the FBI have million dollar book deals and are still out free and clear.
He falsely told the agents that he worked for a company that bought and sold PPE and that he never took physical custody of the materials.
I think the real problem here is the Top Men ran into their own kind. The fellow was competition.
The press release from Blackwater got me thinking about this video. Filmed by another Blackwater employee in Iraq, we get to see Travis Haley shooting up insurgents or commies or whatever it was from the top of a building with a scoped AR15. Many moons ago when TH was active on Barfcom, I recall him saying that he used MK 262 ammo in his AR15. The gun was a 20 inch Bushmaster with an ARMS railed handguard provided by Blackwater to their contractors. I think that Haley’s skill is unquestionable and he would have been a success without this video ever being seen by the public. However, I think a argument could be made that this video is what rocketed him up into the stratosphere of the celebrity gunworld and training circles. If you have never seen it before, it is well worth the time. If you have, then its still a helluva lot of fun to watch again.
This video below is Travis talking about the event and adding context 10 years later. You will get to see his replica of the rifle he used on that day.
Some news from a name we haven’t heard in a long time.
For Immediate Release – Concord, NC – Erik Prince and Blackwater Worldwide are pleased to announce the recent partnership with Iron Horse Firearms.
Iron Horse entered the scene late 2018 with the first of its kind, thumb operated AR15 and their magazine fed shotgun called the Sentry 12. The patent pending, thumb-operated trigger has been shown to greatly enhance the experience of a large portion of the shooting community and makes shooting possible for those who have limited mobility or severely injured fingers. The Sentry 12 magazine fed shotgun, gives users the ability to rapidly select various ammo to match the threat level, all within a simple and reliable platform. Both products will be sold under the Blackwater Firearms division of Blackwater Worldwide.
“Ironhorse’s revolutionary trigger system has the potential to be a game changer. It could not come at a better time as there have been so few impactful innovations in the firearms industry over the past 50 years.” Said Eric Prince, Founder of Blackwater Worldwide “Our in-house testing has shown a significant decrease in shot group size when compared to a traditional AR-15 trigger set. We think this technology could be totally disruptive in the firearms market and could replace traditional triggers altogether at some point.”
“Blackwater brings much appreciated industry experience to our relatively new company.” Said Ryan McDonald, CEO Iron Horse Firearms “Together, we feel good about our chances of making this Blackwater and Iron Horse partnership very successful.”
Moving forward, Iron Horse Firearms will be “doing business as” Blackwater Firearms.
