Get Your Ghost Guns!

Completing an 80% lower used to be kind of difficult (for the average cubicle dweller) and required some tools and know how.  Now a days you can get it done with an inexpensive machine or a highly specialized 3D printer.  I talked about this back in October, and Defense Distributed is finally shipping these 3D printing machines.  Check out this overly artistic trailer:

Cool concept, but make sure to check your laws before you go building.  I'd like to see some reviews from folks that have printed with and how long these printed lowers (from this machine) last before they crack.  Head over to ghostgunner to learn more.  What do you guys think?

Larry Vickers Alpha AK

I don't really know what to make of the AK.  Yes, I know you can throw it in mud and it will still function and it is great for the cost conscious militia group, but I just can't get too excited about them.  I'm an AR man and I just like they way the look and feel. 

Larry Vickers continues his trend on shooting exotic weapons that are impossible to find, expensive, and lots of fun to shoot.  Check out his review of the Alpha AK:

I guess if you were to take the AK route this would be the only way to go.  On looks alone that was a great looking rifle and I have no doubts performs incredibly well.  What did you guys think?


Horrifying Gun Prank

Gun pranks are bad, so please don't do them.  That being said, I feel like I've got pretty sense of which ones are fake.  I watched this one below, and even though I knew what was coming I was still pretty shocked.  Just watch and I'll get into it...

So I'm about 90% sure that was totally fake.  Of the fake vids this is one of the better made ones for sure.  What do you guys think, is this vid a fake?


Will It Bend: Mythbusters Curved Barrel

Curving the bullet whilst shooting isn't just something invented by the Nazis nor is it part of a terrible action movie ("Wanted" Google it if you desire).  The guys from Mythbusters take on this challenge of bending a barrel and then firing.  Check out the vid:

Pretty cool science experiment.  Don't try it at home because you'll eff up your rifle and flirt with death.  If it were deemed safe, I'd like to shoot a rifle like this. I'm pretty sure this curved barrel will be worked into some horrible relay race on the next season of Top Shot.  Here is that original curved barrel I mentioned above:

This Is The Ugliest Sling Shot I've Ever Seen

If you are using a sling shot for self defense it either means the world has ended and all bullets are officially gone, or you're fighting in a 3rd world country.  Either way I'm not really a fan of sling shots for bug out bags or self defense.  Sure you could throw a slingshot in that old ALICE pack that hides out in your truck hope that rubber holds up after having massive temperature fluctuations, or maybe just carry a real weapon.  Check out this review of the Pocket Shot which is in fact a sling shot:

I guess it is a little bit more packable than the standard wrist rocket, but I don't see a lot of practical vaule to this thing.  If you are under 12 it might be cool to shoot at miss birds with, but I'd avoid making this the sole means for getting dinner when society collapses.  If you want to waste $25 visit their website.
