And the Award for Most Epic Beard at SHOT Show 2016 Goes To….


Magpul designers John Tullis and Taylor Welden. They were promoting Magpul’s new apparel line, including a full clothing and accessory line (belts, tactical/work gloves, etc. ). Well done, gentlemen. Well done.

    1. avatar Desert Ranger says:

      Magpul horned-helmets!

  2. avatar Anonymous says:

    Should have cut that beard off and braided it into a rifle sling. Could sell it to Cabot for their upcoming rifle line.

    1. avatar LifeAbounds says:

      Weave a sling clip onto the end of a braid and use for AR pistol.
      Hide in beard. CCW

      THAT would be tactical.

  3. avatar TITAN308 says:

    As a fellow long beard owner, the guy on the left needs to learn to at least half ass grooming his beard. It looks terrible. Buy that man a boar thistle brush and barber comb.

  4. avatar john boch says:

    The only thing epic about those two is an epic grooming fail.

    1. avatar TITAN308 says:

      The guy on the right is OK, but the guy on left is killing me. Probably just my OCD kicking in.

      1. avatar TITAN308 says:

        This hipster hairstyle is a nice touch tho lol

      ^ ^ ^ +1

    2. avatar Kris says:

      As a sporter of beard and father of daughter, I’d rather be impressed by the beards at a gun show. I bet the girls at those gun shows weren’t raised by armed fathers. How ironic.

  6. avatar dph says:

    I’ll bet you can find enough of yesterdays lunch in there to feed one of those starving kids in India I used to hear about.

  7. avatar Mack Bolan says:

    Ironically they probably manscape.

  8. avatar JR Pollock says:

    I can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if they got too close to a lathe on the shop floor..

    1. avatar dph says:

      Almost any machine on the shop floor for that matter.

    2. avatar Geoff PR says:

      “I can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if they got too close to a lathe on the shop floor..”

      Like this young woman?:

  9. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

    I don’t think epic means what you think it means.

  10. avatar Arrr says:

    Careful these guys are staring to look like Muslims to me.

  11. avatar Andy says:

    “I’ll bet you can find enough of yesterdays lunch in there”


    “Careful these guys are staring to look like Muslims to me.”


    Allah’s snack bar!

    Nice work peeps!

      *B I N G O*

      great post.

  12. avatar TroyBilt says:

    It takes anywhere between 2 – 6 years to grow a beard to your beards max.

    There are 3 stages of beard growth. Once you hit stage 3 your beard is at its final length.

    I have not trimmed mine in over 28 months now. Just once in my life I thought I should see how long I could grow it. My lady friend hates it.

  13. avatar Wade says:

    No thanks

  14. avatar Rambo Shopper says:

    Those guys probably know how to change a tire or three:

    Beards approved!

  15. avatar adverse says:

    Were those possums flying in formation, and just how fast were they going when they hit those guys in the face?

  16. avatar Lane Crouse says:

    I’m gonna have to say one of the the Nate’s from N82 Tactical is easily as close to that, and their product is not so watered down

  17. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    These two are promoting Magpul’s new apparel line? Sounds about right.
    ‘Cause every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.

  18. avatar Asdf says:

    When it gets that long, braid it and hang chicken bones from it.

  19. avatar RayfromBama says:

    Fear the beard. I’m not far behind, lot of white in mine though.

  20. avatar James69 says:

    They could not afford Duck Dynasty beards…..yet.

  21. avatar neiowa says:

    NEATO. 511 needs company selling gun wackers $5 Chicom teeshirts at a 500% markup. Is that capitalism or gouging?

  22. avatar GunTotinDem says:

    Its like talking to a shrubbery

  23. avatar bontai Joe says:

    Mine is only about 4 inches long and mostly white. I give these 2 guys two thumbs up for going for it. My wife hates when mine gets this long, but it’s COLD outside.

    1. avatar Matt in SC says:

      You’re talking about your beard I hope……

      Sorry, couldn’t help it 😀
