World’s Longest NERF Gun [VIDEO]

When the anti-gunners’ arguments fail, they frequently go all ad hominem. Gun rights advocates, they claim, are compensating for their small penis size. Without getting into details about my own wedding tackle, I know a couple of firearms enthusiasts who are hung like a horse. Equally, as I’ve said here before, it’s a man’s testicle size that determines his character, not the length of his penis. I won’t trouble you with my own cubic centimeter count. And I haven’t taken calipers to any of my gun-toting friends’ testicles. Suffice it to say . . .

MythBusters Breaking Bad Machine Gun Finale [VIDEO]

No, it’s not the finale of MythBusters – although that’s bound to be heading our way what with Adam and Jamie set to star in a spy series. SPOILER ALERT It’s the machine gun-flavored finale of Breaking Bad, where Walter takes out all his enemies with an autonomous machine gun. Suffice it to say, yeah science!

Harvey Weinstein Breaks ‘No Violence’ Pledge as Anti-Gun Meryl Streep Project Languishes

ScreenHunter_02 Aug. 25 08.49

The first trailer for “The Hateful Eight,” Quentin Tarantino’s newest shoot-‘em-up, was released earlier this month to generate buzz for an end-of-year release. Famous for taking graphic onscreen violence and gore to the extreme, the upcoming Western promises more of the same, with the director explaining it will “Trap [the characters] together in a room with a blizzard outside, give them guns, and see what happens.” . . .

Mad Max – With Paintball Guns [VIDEO]

I found the latest Max Max movie a bit of a snoozer. SPOILER ALERT: Weirdly-dressed bad guys chase our post-apocalyptic pal into the desert and then chase him back. An …that’s it. Itsy bitsy go-kart aside, this paintball-based homage isn’t really a parody as much as it is an aspiring director’s c.v. More importantly, the four-minute relatively chaste chase scene shows paintball game entrepreneurs a desert-based avenue for commercial expansion. The insurance waiver would be epic, but then so would the fun!

UK Artist to Filmmakers: Show A Gun, Destroy a Gun (Scorsese’s In!)

""Toy Gun" by Carl McCrow. The weapon was removed from the Democratic Republic of Congo and decommissioned before being painted with toy company branding. It is priced at £75,000 (around $118,000)." (text and photo courtesy nbcnews.com)

“British artist Carl McCrow is asking the world’s most successful filmmakers to make an unambiguous pledge: For every gun that appears in their movies, he wants them to destroy a real one,” nbcnews.com reports. “His first taker? “Tomorrow,” a film executive produced by Oscar winner Martin Scorsese that will be released later this year and follows soldiers trying to reintegrate into society after returning from combat.” Yes, you’re right. This is the dumbest anti-gun agitprop ever conceived. Which is kinda cool. You know; if McCrow is goofing on the anti-gunners. And you know what? He just might be. Check this out . . .

NERF Nerd Reveals Star Wars Blasters

Everyone knows Storm Troopers can’t hit squat. Now, if they do get their sights lined up, they won’t elicit so much as an ouch from their targets. Equally, I’m sure a Jedi knight could stop a NERF dart mid-flight. What’s more, the Storm Trooper rifle – complete with NERF Rampage internals (the elite version of the old school NERF Raider) – positions the mag horizontally. Like horizontal stripes on clothing, even when worn by a Hungarian supermodel, that’s a really bad idea. As for NRFB Star Wars-themed darts, huh? I do, however, love the  . . .

Hunting an Elephant With a .51 caliber DShK. Funny? [VIDEO]

It’s always nice to see the weapon in action that our Jon Wayne Taylor calls “the most perfect thing ever invented by man”: the Browning .50 caliber machine gun. This is not that gun! As our more ballistically informed readers have pointed out it’s a Russian .51 caliber DShK. Still the question remains: funny or die? I reckon elephants are one of the most magnificent creatures on planet Earth. But this is not one of those “you got peanut butter in my chocolate” moments. Don’t get me wrong . . .

Note to Kim Kardashian: Stick To Selfies

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 10.18.40 AM

I had to “reveal” my gun to someone once. I was at home with my newborn son. It was a long time ago, and fairly uneventful. Which is exactly how it should be. Knowing I was armed was enough to make someone leave my property. If I hadn’t been…. But that’s not a situation Kim Kardashian would ever encounter. She has armed guards to protect her children and her. Which is why the celebrity felt free to use the sickening news of what one man did to an entire family in Texas as the springboard for an anti-gun Twitter rant . . .

Primary Weapons Systems’ .300 BLK MK109 in Pop Culture

insider-threat-cover

Brad Taylor spent 21 years in the U.S. Army, including eight in the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment–Delta (aka Delta Force), before retiring in 2010. In 2011, he published his first novel and the first book in the Pike Logan, “Taskforce” thriller series, One Rough Man (an allusion to the George Orwell quote: “People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm.”). Since reading that book a few years ago, I have faithfully pre-ordered every subsequent installment as soon as it popped up for Kindle pre-order on Amazon, and recently finished The Insider Threat, the most recent novel in the series. Much to my surprise and enjoyment, Mr. Taylor quite prominently featured the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge, the PWS MK109, and the GEMTECH GMT-300BLK suppressor all working together in concert to provide a new, highly effective “black rifle” for the Taskforce to replace their range-limited HK UMP45s. Excerpts from the novel follow. . .

Deadpool. Better Gunfights Please! [Video NSFW]

I’m not familiar with the Marvel character Deadpool. Apparently, DP [sic] is known for breaking the so-called “fourth wall,” addressing snarky comments directly to the viewer. In this clip, the self-aware superhero tells the audience that a gory bad guy massacre has left him feeling onanistic. Talk about TMI. Actually, let’s talk about cinematic gun fights. I haven’t seen a good one in a long time. But then I’m stuck behind this keyboard for most of what’s laughably called my life. The last best gunfight scene I saw was the infamous bit where Indy shoots a sword-wielding baddie without a second glance. Steer me in the right direction. What movies should I chase down? [NB: Post updated to remove – and now parade – my ignorance]

Hillary Clinton Tells Her Late Mother’s Heartbreaking Story in First TV Campaign Ads people.com pronounces. What’s that 80’s expression? Gag me with a spoon. Meanwhile, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has released the above video Making Machine Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz. Nice contrast, ballsy move, coulda used a hat tip to FPSRussia, but . . .
