Received this recently from Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia: “Hi. I’m looking to buy knifes that would suit my Stoeger Shotgun please see attachments for details. Do you sell them and if so what price are they and do you ship to Newcastle area and I will pay all cost.” I (nicely) informed her we don’t sell knives, in fact don’t sell anything, and asked her permission to show you the photos, which she gave. Here ya go. Click for the full size glory, and make the jump for the other photo…
Yes, friends, that first photo has a 90 degree mounted forward grip and red dot sight. If you needed a photographic representation of awesome, there it is.
What happens when the knockout game goes wrong for the punk? Well, it doesn’t have to involve gunfire. In this idiot’s case, he tried to knock out a woman in a shopping mall in Vegas, with video brought to us courtesy of one of his friends, who can be heard saying “Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go” at the open of the video. Unfortunately for him, the woman didn’t get knocked out, but wheeled around on him, and he ended up bleeding out of his face on the ground. Extra points for the guy who comes in about five seconds in with a flying kick to the guy’s face. Click the link above for the video. Volume and language warning.
The NSSF has filed suit (pdf) against the city of Sunnyvale, California to prevent the enforcement of an ordinance passed back in November. The ordinance would require that ammunition retailers keep ammunition sales logs and personal information on their customers and expands and duplicates an existing reporting requirement for lost or stolen guns. The NSSF (in partnership with a local retailer) argues the ordinance violates and is preempted by state and federal law and imposes an onerous regulatory burden on firearms retailers. “It is unjust to ask retailers within the Sunnyvale city limits to collect sensitive personal information from customers who easily can drive a few miles to a store in another city where such information is not required.”

Jack wrote in about a recent range experience: Took a trip to the range over the holiday weekend. It was so crowded that I had to wait around 10 minutes for a bay. While I was sitting there, I was annoyed at the crowd. (It’s bad enough that I live in antigun Seattle and have to drive all the way to Bellevue for range practice.) Then I took a closer look at the people who composed that crowd, and my outlook changed. There were lots of women and obvious noobs. Young ladies in tight-fitting clothes tried to contain their giggles. [My favorite range customers. -Matt] The average age was probably early 30s. A good half of the people were nonwhite. And very few were OFWGs. A crowded range is a hopeful sign that an understanding of the right to keep and bear arms is spreading, despite the efforts of gun prohibitionists to paint gun enthusiasts as a dying breed of “bitter clingers.” What are the rest of you seeing? Variety like Jack, or same old song and dance?
Richard Ryan goes all Tech Assassin on an LG G Flex smartphone, and man, this guy is a scary shot. Shooting things edge on and plowing a path down the middle of them is tough enough, but since the G Flex has a “self healing” back to prevent abrasions, he wants to see how it stands up to being scratched by a bullet. So he pulls out his AR-15 chambered in AAC 300 BLK, and grazes the back of the phone with the bullet.
