13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

I don't mind a Michael Mann movie in the same way I don't mind eating at McDonalds...  Once in a while is okay, but if I do it everyday I feel sick.  Bay is probably best know for making movies about transforming cars, turtles who happen to be ninjas, and lots of big explosions.  Bay is making a movie about the events that took place at Benghazi.  Check out the trailer:

If it were anyone else directing I'd be excited, but I seriously feel like Bay is going to mess this up.  I predict it will be more about showing off his lens flares, obscure lighting, and explosions, and less about the events that occurred.  What do you guys think?

France: Shoot A Suicidal Man To Save His Life

France...  That place where french fries come from.  Yea I'm not going to pretend I understand how they do things over there, but apparently they have a unique policy to stop attempted suicides which involves shooting the person thinking about biting the bullet.  Watch as this French cop takes a long shot with an MP5:

That looked like an impressive shot with an MP5 and iron sights.  Why did the cop yell afterwards?  The radio was right in front of him.  I though only cops in movies shot people in the leg...  In America, we shoot the guns right out of people's friggin' hands!  USA!  USA!  USA! 

Btw shot happens at 1:27.

Polish Ladies Going Full Tactical

I guess Poland doesn't have Magpul training videos so that had to make their own.  I think this training class was focused on ladies, and the instructors certainly didn't hold back.  You can go a head skip to about 1:10 to catch the action.

Those ladies did well!  Btw, what was up with that dude drawing and shooting behind his back?

Tactical Baby Carrier

If you live the zombie hunter, tacticool, morale patch lifestyle, all products in your life must have some sort of tactical spin.  That being said, if you need to carry around a small child (or pet) you might as well go for the tactical baby carrier from Mission Critical.

At $190 you might as well just a get a good ruck sack, but I admire the effort.  If you have a collection of ninos and are considering an upgrade for your papoose, this is a solid choice.  Here are the specs:

  • For Babies approx 8-35 lbs
  • 1000D Nylon outer construction
  • Meets ASTM F2236-14 regulations for baby carriers
  • YKK zippers
  • Sun shield
  • MOLLE attachment front and back
  • Weight 36.5 oz

I feel like I should dock 10 points for not having a space for morale patches, but the MOLLE might make up for it.  Feel free to mount your tacticool-guy pouches all over the front and preserve liberty or something.  Visit Mission Critical's website for more info.

Red Neck Five Seven Armor Test On Kitchen Floor

I'm all for doing the occasional body armor test, but I'd say it is probably best to do it outside.  I had always heard that the five seven could cut through soft body armor like B.O. in a subway, but I'd never seen any youtube evidence.  This red neck fella decided to put it to the test... in his kitchen. 

Well quite surprisingly the vest stopped the round.  It might have had performed differently in another room in his modular home, but not all tests can be equal.  Why do this inside?  I have no idea... Just a friendly reminder try to avoid shooting guns inside your house and vest tests should be unmanned.
