Richard Ryan Shotguns A Beer

The holiday weekend is almost upon us and Richard Ryan shotgunned a few beers in slow mo to prove how awful Natty Ice is encourage you not to drink and drive this weekend.  Check out the vid:

Did you catch that?  He literally took a shotgun to a beer ::pausing for laughter:: haha.  Be safe this weekend, and I'll be back on Tuesday with more great gun blogger snark.


GORUCK Firearms Gear

As many of you may know I'm a big fan of all things GORUCK (check about my ebook about my GORUCK Challenge here), and I was pretty excited that their new line of firearms gear is here!  As with anything GORUCK, this stuff is made in the USA and with the utmost quality.  Check out the vid with the three products being offered:

GORUCK Firearms Overview from GORUCK on Vimeo.


This gear looks amazing, and each of the three products comes with lots of options for organizing gear.  Each one has magazine holders, pouches for ammo boxes, tourniquet holder, and generic storage (for tools, pens, bore lights, etc).  There are also options for medium and large caliber setups depending on what you like to shoot.  As you might suspect with anything made in the USA, this stuff isn't cheap. 

The budget option is the Pistol Rug (pictured at the top) which is $185.  This rug just holds the essentials like your gat, some mags, a box of ammo, multi tool, and a few other goodies.  The next option is the Pistol Case which will set you back $325 and offers significantly more storage for lots of ammo and other goodies.  Lastly, there is the Rifle Case (pictured above) which will cost $365 and hold an AR15 style of rifle that is broken down in two pieces.  All of these cases are pretty discreet, and the Velcro on the inside allows you to set it up based on your preferences.

Btw, if you are feeling really epic you can get a combo pack (pictured above) of all three items for the low price of $895.  Do all those prices feel a little high?  Here is what Jason McCarthy the founder of GORUCK had to say:

The cost and the price was about 1.5x what I expected/hoped for (and we’ve been at this a while meaning we’re tougher to surprise), and while I understand these prices are high, they’re actually the lowest they’ll ever be. If we are not able to increase our operational efficiencies, these prices will go up significantly in the future.

We have plans to build more gear and offer other varieties. My best guess, though, at this point is that this is the only way (aka bundled) that we’ll be offering the gear for a long while. To be even more clear, we have no plans to separate out the individual items before Christmas of 2014.

Everything is currently on pre-order and you can get more info here.  The pre-order is only available for another 5 days, so if you want anything you'd better order soon.  Gear is expected to ship 8 weeks after the pre-sale ends.  I'll leave you with this video from Cadre Tyler who designed the new GORUCK firearms line:

Girlfriend Shotgun Fail

If you plan on taking your significant other to the range (which you should do) a little instruction is helpful.  This fella brought his lady to the back porch for some target practice, and she wasn't too fond of taking instructions.  Check out the video; be warned there is a bit of swearing in the vid:

Wow, she seems like a delight.  If you were ever wondering what happens if you don't hold on to a shotgun now you know!


CA 10 Day Waiting Period Struck Down In Court

One of the many nuances that comes with purchasing a firearm in California is the 10 day waiting period.  The liberal politicians created this time as a "cool down" period in case the purchaser was thinking about doing something awful with the new weapon and also so a background check could be run.  Why 10 days?  Well it is arbitrary number made up by a politician, and realistically would not impact safety one bit if the wait was 9 days or 11 days.  Also, if you already own a firearm is the 10 days really necessary?  Btw, background checks are damn near instant these days.

Anyway, the CalGuns Foundation has been fighting the state on this issue for a long time saying that it infringing upon the 2nd Amendment.  Basically those 10 days of waiting you are being denied your 2A rights.   The courts have ruled in our favor, and here is a little snippet taken from an article in the Washington Post which summarizes the incredibly long court doc:

When the 10-day waiting period laws apply, they prohibit every person who purchases a firearm from taking possession of that firearm for a minimum of 10 days. One cannot exercise the right to keep and bear arms without actually possessing a firearm. The purchased firearm cannot be used by the purchaser for any purpose for at least 10 days.

This great news, and big win for us gun owners!  I'm sure this will take some time to implement so don't get too demanding with that old guy at the gun store saying you want your Glock "right now!"  So what happens next?  Here is what the CalGuns Foundation said on their website:

Under the court order, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) must change its systems to accommodate the unobstructed release of guns to gun buyers who pass a background check and possess a California license to carry a handgun, or who hold a “Certificate of Eligibility” issued by the DOJ and already possess at least one firearm known to the state.

 Who knows when this will actually take place, but I"ll keep you updated as I get more updates.  I'm excited I"ll no longer need to wait 10 days for firearms purchases! Head over to the CGF for more information.


Wild Boar Hunting With A Minigun

Wild boar hunting is pretty fun, and doing just about anything with a full auto is really fun.  When you blend the two of them together you've got the potential for something pretty epic.  Check out the vid:

Despite this fella's "spray and pray" shooting style, I'm not entirely sure he hit a damn thing.  Pretty cool though, and I'd love to try my hand at the minigun someday.  Btw, if any of you guys have access to a minigun and would be willing to let me take a few selfies with it and pop off a few rounds, email me at:
