Ghost Recon Wildlands

Damn, I guess I must have missed this along the way, but Ubisoft is making a pretty sweet open world shooter called Ghost Recon Wildlands.  Check out the trailer:

Well it is all pre-alpha graphics, but I like the concept and it reminds me a bit of the earlier Far Cry games.  No release date yet, but you can learn more at the official site.  What do you guys think?

Cops Fight Drugged Out Man At McDonalds

My heart goes out to all of you in law enforcement...  You have a thankless a job and typically have to deal with the worst parts of society.  I saw this video and watched as these cops did everything by the book to fight this dude on who was clearly on drugs.  Rough day.

Shot Show 2016: Part 4 | Ralston Scavenger 6

Remember how I kept saying I couldn't find the unicorn I was looking for at Shot Show?  I think it is in the ad above.  Damn, that looks like something straight out of a 80's action flick!  Why would you need a survival rifle that can shoot 21 different calibers?  Well I guess if the whole grid goes down you'll need a gun that can shoot all the ammo that you can scavenge. 

Not only is this firearm ugly, it seems far from practical...  How would you reload that cylinder?  So when the zombies collapse society and you stumble upon a box of .38 special, you'll have a gun that can shoot one round of .38 at a time as well as a bunch of other calibers.  Good luck defending yourself against walkers!  When I see something like this I wonder why they didn't just make a gun that fires one caliber easily instead of a gun that fires 21 calibers poorly...

Shot Show 2016: Part 3

Shot Show 2016, day 3 round up!

Remember Thyrm? They partnered with Chris Costa to put this ring on a Surefire light about two years ago.  Now they have created a pretty unique battery tube, and I'm digging the small footprint.  Bonus points for the GORUCK products used in the video.  At $20 on Amazon it seems a little high, but I'll probably end up getting one.  h/t SSD

You don't need to do a double take; those are 5.11 yoga pants.  I guess there is a narrow market to chase after there, but it seems a little over the top to me.  You can view the Capri version of these pants "Raven Rage" on 5.11's site priced at  $85. h/t guns.com

Maybe it is because I hate wearing suits, but I've never been a big fan of the garment bag.  That being said, VertX is making a version that could hold your suit and an AR.  Pretty innovative design, and looks high quality.  h/t TFB

Shot Show 2016: Part 2

I'm still waiting for the magical unicorns to emerge from Shot Show 2016...  Like yesterday, lots of good stuff, but nothing new or earth shattering.  Here are the highlights:

Slidefire has a new stock called the SSAR-15 (SSAK-47 for those of you with Klashnikovs).  It looks a little less ugly and I find the twisty button on the bottom a little strange on the AR model.  The AK model is clearly lacking; maybe they will get that fixed by the time it comes to market.  Fast forward to about 1:30 to see the action in the video above.

Magpul is continuing to make more stuff we all want to by with a brand new clothing line.  Solider Systems did a pretty good write up and has some pics from their booth.  Recoil had some good info too.

Everyone seems to be quite excited for Silencerco's Maxim 9.  It looks kind of like something you'd find in a B-action movie set in the future, but it sure is quiet. 

That's about it for today.  I'll have more goodies up tomorrow.
