Stumbled across this video today. The source (imgur) says that it is Indonesian Special Forces training. It is a good thing that the shooter on the left is wearing eye protection, otherwise someone might get hurt.
The Smarter Every Day youtube channel posted this cool video showing some slow motion video of translucent suppressors. Very cool. We also learn that Arcylic isn’t an ideal material for silencer tubes.
Of all the things guns are, I am sick of hearing that firearms are an investment. They are not. While many guns will hold their value, and some do appreciate in value, they are not an investment. The classic argument I commonly see and get told is that if you bought a M16 in 1986 … Read moreRant: Firearms are not an investment.
My favorite gun started key-holing last weekend. It is the most distraught I’ve felt in a long time. Like losing an old friend. Extra kick in the nuts was that I just rebuilt the gun as I was upgrading it. After I had issues with my first SBR I decided I’d have another built no … Read moreLooks like the barrel is shot on my favorite AR.

I was going to write some history, but instead I am going to quote, Dyspeptic Gunsmith who summed it up nicely. 40+ years ago, many consumer-grade were notoriously unreliable. Oh, … Read moreOptic of the week: Leupold MK4 3.5-10X40
I was supplied a set of Chaos Ready Flip Up sights to try and review. When I saw that they were $27.99 I was pretty doubtful on the quality of them. When the average back up iron sight set costs about $200, I was really curious what $28 would get. I was surprised. These sights are sold … Read moreReview: Chaos Ready Flip Up Iron Sights
I am a big fan of Keeping It Simple, Stupid (K.I.S.S.). But I hate when the idea is used wrongly. K.I.S.S. should be used to help prevent failure both in equipment and operator, not as an excuse to save money or reduce capability. With regarding firearms, I often see the argument for K.I.S.S. used when … Read moreThe K.I.S.S. Fallacy.
