SAFESHOOT Hunting Safety Device (For Realz)

Will ya look at humongous thing hanging off the end of that guy’s rifle? No wonder it needs a bipod! Nope. It’s not a radar gun. It’s a SAFESHOOT device “driven by an array of dynamic-calibrated long-range MEMS sensors, onboard GPS and RF communication.” Well no one communicated this to me . . . Until […]

New from ERGO: MAST System Gun Holder Thingie

The deluge of pre-SHOT Show press releases has left me a little “creative.” I To wit: I started this one attempting to tie the word “MASTER” to actor Alan Bates. As Richard Nixon claimed to have muttered to John Dean, we could do that . . . but it would be wrong. So I’ll just say […]

New From Unique ARs: Unique-Grips

I like Unique-ARs. Their custom handguards are really cool, and I actually have one in the works right now for my .458 SOCOM hog murderin’ SBR upper suppressed with a Liberty Goliath. I also understand the cool design and utility of this über adjustable pistol grip. But damn is it ugly. Err, unique. Press release follows […]

New From Crosman: DPMS SBR Full Auto CO2 Rifle

An air rifle isn’t legally a “firearm,” so a full-auto air rifle isn’t legally a “machine gun.” Crosman thinks you’ll have some fun with that, so they’re releasing a select-fire DPMS SBR CO2 rifle with all the AR stuff you know and love and a 1,400 RPM cyclic rate. Sweet. Press release follows . . […]
