Flamethrower Powered By Rabbit Poop

I'm all about a little recycling and re-purposing of waste, but I feel like there is a line that needs to be drawn.  One of those crazy prepper people used some rabbit crap to power his flame thrower.  Check out the vid and I'll commence with the snark:

I really hope that blender wasn't used for making margaritas the following evening...  Sure using rabbit poo to power a flamethrower is creative, but a flamethrower as a defensive weapon seems questionable.  It is bulky and fragile, and I don't think it is very effective against any bad guy who has a projectile hurling device like a bow and arrow, sling shot, or atlatl. I also don't think it would be too easy to mount that shop vac, fuel tank, and a rabbit to that old ALICE pack frame...

I would highly advise against any DIY type flamethrowers and I feel like a little bit of safety gear would go a long ways... I'm not sure how effective sweaty cotton shirts are against a fireball of weaponized rabbit dung, but maybe some safety glasses or gloves might be a good starting point.

What's The Beef With Hunting?

Lol, I love when vegetarians, vegans, and other wierdos complain about how animals are treated and how awful hunters are.  I've heard all the arguments before, and before you choke on that soy chorizo (because that is totally natural) maybe getting a little education on hunting would be beneficial.  Check out this video from Natalie Foster and the NRA about hunting:

New AK47 Bullet Button

Just in time for Obama's ban on Russian weapons (funny how other Russian products like vodka or Yakov Smirnoff weren't banned...) there is a brand new AK bullet button.  CA has a bunch of crazy rules regarding weapons with scary names and features like AKs and ARs, which means they typically have to be equipped with a bullet button (as always, I'm not a lawyer; do your own research on CA assault weapons).  Bullet buttons essentially "pin" the magazine in place and a tool, or bullet, is required to remove the magazine.

Strike Industries recently created a very functional AK bullet button pictured above.  No permanent modification is required and it is only $20.  Although the rest of the rifle probably isn't ambidextrous, this little button is! Check out Strike Industries for all the info.

Tap Rack Training Aid

I've heard a lot of mixed things on whether or not you need to do dry fire practice (note: always double check your weapon is unloaded; the same safety rules your grandfather taught you still apply) with a snap cap or dummy round.  Either way, if you practice ejecting the fake round (such as simulating clearing a jam) you'll be running all over your garage trying to find out which box of crap it rolled under.

Bill Rogers recently developed a new training aid called the Tap Rack, and it fits right in that sweet spot of being functional yet not a pain in the ass. The dummy rounds are a little thinner which means you can still put in a mag with the round loaded but it won't actually seat or eject.  Check out how it works in the vid below:

I like that!  That is a great way to get a little practice in within the comforts of your living room.  At $5 (plus shipping) for a pack of 3, it seems like a pretty fair price.  Currently available in 9mm (same as .40 cal for this product) and .45 ACP.  Visit holster ops for more info.

Costa Map System

Chris Costa has had several lines of tactical gear manufacturers in the past ranging from silly looking to ridiculously expensive.  Costa's latest system looks to be fairly priced and pretty cool looking.  Check out the vid below:

I really like the whole setup!  The modular design keeps things separate and easy to pack depending on if you are going on an extended zombie hunt or just a quick afternoon at the range.  All the products are made by LBX Tactical and come in a few different colors including that super bad ass wolf grey color (grey is the new mutlicam).  The prices are very fair with the rifle bag at $275, plate carrier at $200, and a whole bunch of smaller accessories.  Head over to LBX to view the whole collection.
