Double M16: Because America

The old saying goes "one is none and two is one."  I think that was original supposed to refer to Twix bars or perhaps something to do with the amount of pocket watches carried by your grandfather.  Now days preppers use this one sentence argument to convince their wives they need more gear.  Either way having  a double rifle is more than just awesome, it is American...

Before you set down your Natty Ice and pick up your credit card, you need to know this beast is for law enforcement only.  Sorry folks, but maybe someday SlideFire will make a stock for a semi auto version of this rifle.  The above mentioned rifle is called the Siamese M16 and is made by Tromix.  The gas tubes are crossed and work with each other for that high rate of fire. 

Although this looks ripe for a cameo in walking dead, I doubt it is at all practical.  I'm not exactly sure how you can reload in less than five minutes and you can bet there is no tacticool "sleight of hand" fast reloads on that top rifle.  I feel like aiming might be a bit of a problem with that mag in your face.  Lastly, I can only imagine this thing has to weight 20+ lbs. fully loaded.

You can visit the official Tromix site if you want, but it hasn't been updated in a long time and their internal link to this rifle is totally busted.

Magpul MBUS Pro Offset Sights

If you see sights perched at a strange angle on a rifle it isn't for "thug life" style shooting.  Angled sites, or back up iron sights, provide a great back up for that knock off optic you picked up at the gun show.  Those cheapo optics can run out of juice, break, or be simply decide they won't work when you need them most.  The backup sights let you stay in the fight and take out those slow moving zombies that are headed your direction.  Magpul has created their own version of sights and they actually look pretty cool.  Check out this video that could use a more excited narrator and a little bit of music:

The front site is about $84 and the rear sight is $105.  Like everything Magpul makes it is rock solid and light weight.  What do you guys think, would you put this on your rifle?

South Korean Road Rage: That Escalated Quickly

The anti-gun folks would claim that if we remove firearms from society, we'll have a safer place to live.  There really isn't much logic to that, and if you look to our first world neighbors around the globe, you'll see they have intense incidents of violent crime.  Watch what happens in this South Korean road range incident that involves a few angry dudes and a butcher knife.

Wow, I didn't see that coming... That escalated quickly.

Fox News Lies About 80% Complete Lowers

You may look far and wide for fair and balanced news, but you won't find it.  I know many of you watch Fox News and truthfully it isn't all that bad.  In LA we have a different version of Fox News which is way more liberal and tends to tell a different story that you'd find in other parts of the country.  There was recently a story about 80% complete firearms that seemed to fill in some gaps with half truths and lies.  Check out the video below.  It is a bit of a longer report, but definitely worth your time.

Los Angeles News | FOX 11 LA KTTV

The ATF said those 80% complete turned 100% ARs were fully automatic?  Wow those thugs must be really good at machining...  I'm willing to go out on a limb and say they probably weren't full autos and were only semi autos.  Also what was up with that dude in the Hawaiian shirt?  AR15s are like an explosion going off in your body?  Gang members would use less lethal weapons when they couldn't get AR15s?   What exactly is this based on?

Yes 80% complete lowers can fall into the hands of bad people just like knives, baseball bats, cars, booze and numerous other objects that have the potential for harm.  Fox sure seemed to stretch the truth on this one and throw in a few lies for good measure.  Lastly, they only blurred out the stomach of that cholo and not his face... Did anyone else think that was weird?

Potato Gun Fail Compilation

Ah potato guns...  There is no greater way to burn $25 in PVC pipes, hair spray, and a sack of taters.  The problem is that it is really dangerous and that it is most likely illegal.  Ever wonder what could go wrong with a potato gun?  Check out the vid below:
