Suppressed AR15 Cooks Bacon

I eat bacon every day.  Why?  Because 'Merica & it is delicious.  I usually go for the microwave in the interest of time, but there are other ways to cook bacon.  What if I told you that your AR15 is good for more than just defending your home from zombies and shooting Coke Zero cans?  Dustin Ellerman from Top Shot knows...

You like your bacon with extra carbon?  I like the addition of the tin foil; better for cookin'.  I don't know if I'd actually eat that bacon, but I admire the way it was cooked.  Well done Dustin!

Which Dessert Is Bulletproof?

Did you know that there is in fact a dessert that could save your life?  You might need to be coated quite heavily in this dessert and only be shot with bird shot, but STILL!  Nat Geo knows that Americans like food and guns and their British host had a jolly good time shooting at watermelons through a plastic pane of liquid desserts.  Just watch, it will make more sense.

Did we really need to add whip cream in there?  Also, how long was that ice cream sitting out; it was completely melted.  Not a big surprise that pudding was the winner.  Those non-Newtonian fluids really are amazing.  In order to stop a bullet from a handgun you'd probably need to be behind 6+ inches of the stuff, and even then it is a bit of a gamble.  That does sound like a good kickstarter campaign.  All natural, gluten free tapioca body armor...

Fidelis Co.: New Tactical Bag On Kickstarter

I love seeing a good tactical company launch an idea on Kickstarter.  What makes it better is if the products are made in the USA.  Fidelis Co. is a gear company who is launching two new tactical inspired bags on the Kickstarter.  Check out the vid:

I like the vid, and their bags remind me just a bit of Inside Line & Cargo Works, but these bags look pretty slick. It seems like the days of lots of "morale patches and MOLLE" (that is not the AM radio team out of Newark...) are starting to shift to a more aesthetically pleasing design that is still durable.

What do you guys think?  Would you carry this bag if the zombies come?

3D Printed Skorpion vz. 61

Have you ever fired a Skorpion pistol?  They are kinda rare and chances are you've seen them in video games and held by bad guys in big budget action movies.  I thought 3D printing was so 2013, but alas someone printed a Skorpion lower receive.

Maybe it was the European dance music, but I really wasn't all that impressed.  Of all the guns to print you choose this one?  I guess that's cool, but 3D printed guns made out of plastic aren't exactly known for high mileage counts.  This looks like something that might crack or blow up in your hands.

What did you guys think?

Shooting Soda Cans Off Shoulders

Trick shots?  Back in the Annie Oakley days people just did that sort of thing to make a buck and look cool.  Now people just do it to look cool on YouTube.  Trick shots are dangerous and the downside pretty much means death.  That didn't stop these Afgan special forces troops.

Wait a minute, Afghanistan has SF?  What was this filmed on, the same camera they used to track bigfoot? Maybe if Afghanistan stopped making those grandma blankets and ugly dogs they could get their country moved up to 2nd world status.
