Bidirectional Trigger: The New Way To Bump Fire

With the price of ammo continuing to rise, there is no greater time for technology to emerge that will allow you to put more inaccurate shots down range.  Slide Fire Stocks and bump fire trigger systems are all the rage right now because they will allow you to put together those sweet mag dump videos to share on YouTube.  There is a new contender to the rapid fire game and it is the "Liberator" from Liberty Gun Works.  Check the out vid and I'll commence with the snark.

So you basically get two rounds per trigger pull while still being within the law (claims the manufacturer).  This feels a bit unsafe to me, and there doesn't appear to be a way to quickly switch back to single fire mode.  So you've basically got a one trick bullet wasting pony (write that down; solid band name), that can only fire two shots at a time.

I perused the Liberty Gun Works website, and it is a bit, ahem, "lacking" to say the least.  This appears to be a trigger assembly that is doing all the work, but said assembly isn't available on the site.  They offer complete rifles which start at $2300 and come with the bi directional trigger assembly.  That seems like a helluva lot for a rifle that is pretty much designed to burn through ammo.  Also, I'm still not entirely convinced this gun is legal...

What do you guys think?  Would you purchase a rifle like this?



Windshield Can't Stop a .22

In case you were curious windshield don't stop bullets.  I think a lot of folks are under the impression that the angle of the windshield might at least deflect a bullet, but I wouldn't count on it.  Check out how easily this suppressed .22 goes right though a windshield.

Truth be told, I thought the windshield would do something, but that .22 punched through it and still managed to do some damage in the ballistic gel.  Also worth noting is that the windshield does change the direction of the bullet just a bit.

Great Interview With Gene Hoffman From The CalGuns Foundation

I'm a big fan of the CalGuns Foundation, and they have been leading the charge against California's awful gun laws for the past few years.  They have a lot of legal expertise and have been suing the state for unconstitutional laws that should have never been written in the first place.  Check out this great interview with Gene Hoffman who co-founded the CGF.

Pretty good stuff, and thanks for the hard work Gene. 



The Tactical Way To Drink Beer

If you plan on doing a little drinking with your gun buddies, you better make sure your beverage is tactical.  At the very least you should be using some kind of coozie, but if you feel like upping your game, you can pick up a sweet tacti-cool wrap called a Beer Bivy made by Armageddon Gear.

I like this product, and it could definitely hide your Zima or Smirnoff Ice.  It will keep your beer cold and if only it had some morale patch real estate it would be perfect.  Pick up yours at Armageddon Gear for the low price of $15.
