I admit it: I have a Bullet Safe ballistic vest in my vestibule. But I do not have a ballistic helmet in my basement. Why would I? For one thing, basements are a non-starter here in Austin (limestone). For another . . .
BCB’s FRAMM adjustable and foldable stock “allows end users to comfortably discharge their firearms in all firing positions.” According to BCB’s pre-SHOT Show press release . . .
The FRAMM® is good news for security professionals, airsofters and rifle enthusiasts. It is compatible with most in service firearms. Its rubberized non-slip stock pad maximizes comfort and firing stability. It also offers nine position settings to conform to any body and ballistic visor shapes.
The FRAMM® is compatible with the following firearms: FN HERSTAL-SCAR, HK-MP5 A2, BERETTA-ARX 160, HK-MP5K-PDW, HK-G36, B&T-40×46, REMINGTON-ACR, CZ-805 A1 BREN, SIG SAUER-550/551.., B&T-APC556, HK-UMP.
It should be noted that you can adjust the FRAMM stock to use it without wearing a helmet or “ready mask.” Oh, and adding a FRAMM to an AR pistol or suchlike turns the firearm into an SBR. And a very stylish piece of kit too!
As for what “FRAMM” stands for, BCB PR & Media Manager Phillippe Minchin tells TTAG Framm is the French word for “frame.” In Bretagne. Alors maintenant tu sais.
And just in case an assassin finds you twisting by the pool, BCB also makes floating body armor.
If you live by one of Florida’s canals and tire of boats and jetskis breaking the speed limit, shattering the tropical peace and quiet, endangering endangered manatees, BCB also make a non-lethal boat stopping gun.
A handheld Buccaneer runs around $23k. The boat-mounted version will ding your debit card some $43,500.
Come to think of it, if you stop the wrong boat, you might need that floating body armor. Which costs $1250 for NIJ IIIA soft armour. Pricey stuff, but remember what fellow Austonian Sandra Bullock taught us: hope floats.
